Maui in May

Hello Friends,

We just arrived home from a fantastic week in Maui. Of course, we were there for both business and pleasure, with the pleasure being a celebration of our silver wedding anniversary (that is 25 years for all the newbs out there). 25 years is a long time to be with someone, but we are both completely dedicated to each other and never expected not to reach this point.

Anyway, enough with the mushy soap-box stuff. So while we were there, we managed to get out a couple of times to enjoy some of what Maui had to offer. We drove the Road to Hana and went on a few small hikes to see some waterfalls and other scenery, went Snuba diving and snorkeling, enjoyed a traditional luau and hula show, and enjoyed some fabulous sunsets.

The pictures below are but a sample of some of the wonderful things that Maui had to offer.

Thank you Maui for hosting us and we look forward to our return visit.

Blessings,

Chris

Iceland, Day 7

Day 7. Last full day here. Dang.

Well, such as it is, the weather this morning is absolutely horrible. So our morning shoot was canceled. But once the weather cleared up, we took off for Thingvellir National Park. We spent the entire afternoon here, so all the shots this day were in and around the park, including the Hellisheidi Thermal Area and its geothermal plants.

So, this will be my last post from within Iceland. This country is so beautiful and diverse that one could literally spend and entire year here and not see everything. We spend a week in the South, and seemed to hardly explore it. We managed to get some magnificent photographs, only a smidgen of which are in these 7 posts. Over the next few weeks, I’ll put together a compilation of all of them and post for your viewing pleasure.

Thanks for following and blessings to you.

Chris.

Iceland, Day 5

Lack of sleep starting to catch up to me.

Started the day at Black Beach outside of Vik, getting some shots of the sunrise over the glacier and the beach. After which, spent a few hours around the guest house where we were staying, and finally ended the days at various waterfalls, including Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss Waterfalls. Seljalandsfoss was an absolutely wonderful waterfall to photograph, as we were there at sunset and this is a waterfall that you can walk behind. You get drenched and the path isn’t all that great, but it is definitely worth the effort to get some incredible photographs. Ended the day chasing the Northern Lights around the south end of the country. They were not as visible this night as they were the previous nights, so I was unable to capture anything too dramatic.

Enjoy.

Chris

Iceland, Day 3

Today began very early at the beach for some shots of ice on the beach. There are so many pictures out there of this spot, so I was looking to capture one of those. However, two things were working against me: the tide was heading out, the waves weren’t coming at and exiting the beach at the right direction (not 90 degrees), and I didn’t have my rubber boots so I was constantly battling to keep myself from getting wet. I guess that’s three things.

After which, we spent part of the day resting, part of the day looking around the immediate area, and finally ending us at Jökulsárlón for some sunset pictures.

Enjoy.

Chris.

Mt. Rainier, Part Deux

Last week, we decided to take another trip up to Mt. Rainier to hopefully get a few dramatic sunset pictures. Before we left, we looked at the sky and saw no clouds but we decided to go anyway as the mountain always gives great photo opportunities.

Enjoy, and blessings.

Chris.

Shot of the Day 3/29/14

Good morning fellow photo enthusiasts,

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted anything–way too busy these days. So I am posting a picture I took last Saturday.

This is a picture of the sunset over Lake Tanwax in rural Pierce County, Washington.

I love it, I hope you do too!

Blessings,

Chris.

Greetings friends,

And happy Friday to you.

Today, I am sharing my latest Mt. Rainier portrait. I took this one a few nights ago at an undisclosed location during one spectacular sunset.

Many of my facebook friends have seen this already and have been asking for prints. If you are interested, please navigate to the link below to my site on Fine Art America for purchase.

Shot of the Day 9/02/13

Happy Labor Day to you.

As we start another new month, I have been reflecting on the previous month a bit. Among many things I contemplated, one of the things I noted was the absolutely gorgeous sunsets that occurred throughout the month. August seemed to have one right after another. Unfortunately for me,  I was never in a very position to get a really stunning shot-that is one with a beautiful locale, subject, or point-of-view. But I did not want the sunsets to go away without me taking at least one photograph, so I decided to take the camera to my front yard to take a shot of one of the more spectacular sunsets.

Here it is.

Blessings on your week,

Chris.
