#Fall is in full swing in #Colorado and it’s the best I’ve seen!  I had a great time with my client this weekend enjoying all the extra red and orange aspens.  I really wish I had more time this year for fall colors but other travels and commitments limited my personal time to next week.  I’m planning to be in the San Juans but also open to suggestions in Northwest Colorado; I haven’t seen locations up there worthwhile for my eBook yet but I’m sure they exist!

For those that are used to my usual fall colors updates I don’t have much this year, the cost of being slightly more successful I guess…
Anyways, as of this weekend 9/28-9/29:
#MaroonBells - close to peak
Castle Creek Rd - at peak or just past
Capitol Peak - 60%
Tennessee Pass - close to peak
Silverthorne/Dillon - peak
Independence Pass - peak
Twin Lakes - close to peak
Mt. Massive - past peak

Looking forward to finally getting out for #Colorado #Fall colors this weekend!  I’ll be taking a client around the #Aspen area and with colors looking amazing this year, I’m sure will find great shots like this.

"Brúarfoss" 
#Brúarfoss is one of #Iceland’s lesser known and smaller waterfalls. That’s fine with me as I find it to be one of the most beautiful falls on the island and enjoy its lack of crowds.

The creation of this #waterfall image actually involved a number of filters.  I used a polarizer to remove reflections and bring out more of the glacial blue water color, a split ND filter to compensate for the bright sky, and the 10-stop Lee Big Stopper filter to get a daytime 30 second exposure.

I hope you enjoy viewing this as much as I did creating it.  It was the first time I saw the #aurora since a large solar storm that reached Ohio when I was a kid.  This has quickly become one of my favorite images as it really captures the experience of being in #Iceland and witnessing its wonders!

"Northern Glow over Skógafoss"The faint glow of the Northern Lights over the massive Skógafoss waterfall in Southern Iceland. After arriving in Iceland that evening I set out in our camper van to make it as far east as possible before needing to sleep. As I was driving I noticed what looked like faint glowing clouds to the North. After realizing what they really were I went for the closest place with an interesting foreground to capture the amazement I was feeling, it just happened to be Skógafoss! After an hour of running around and pure delight the clouds came in and I got back on the road. It was rainy and overcast for the next 4 days but I was lucky enough to have one more cloud break my last night in Iceland, as well as another display of amazing Aurora.

I saw this scene a few years ago and that’s how I first learned about the dolomites.  I immediately got a desire to visit them and I’m so glad I could capture this view in all its glory.  I will definitely be back!
