It has been said that while most people are sleeping or eating, photographers are going to work. Sunrise and sunset, and just prior and after, are when the most magical of moments occur photographically. Most mornings on vacation, I put in a day of work and THEN go wake my wife to go to breakfast.
I remember being on a small peninsular piece of land sticking out into Yellowstone Lake one July morning at 4:30 am....just me and God and the grizzlies. And, I was thankful I knew the Former when pondering an encounter with the latter.
Interesting shapes, colorful leaves, and amazing locations make trees a wonderful photographic subject. Hope you enjoy the colors of fall, the placement in amazing landscape surrounding, and even the beautiful shape and geometry found in a snag (dead tree) in the photographs found in this gallery devoted to trees.
Who doesn't love seeing a beautiful waterfall? Capturing waterfalls is one of Ken's passionate pursuits in photography. Studying just how to get the best angle and composition to frame the cataract in a photograph involves a great deal of consideration (and sometimes hiking and return trips). Deciding on technical factors such as exposure length to get the water looking "just right" is another fun challenge Ken likes tackling. Please enjoy these waterfalls and cataracts shot in a wide variety of locations.
Autumn is arguable the most colorful time of the year as leaves take on myriad shades against deep blue skies along with the trappings of harvest and Fall holiday themes. Orchestrating factors such as daylight, peak color, and more can be haphazard, but when it all comes together on a crisp fall day, it can be wondrous!
A favorite subject of Ken's, lighthouses, these life-saving technological wonders of yesteryear, bring together beautiful architectural elegance, historical lore, coastal scenery, scientific innovation, maritime charm, and saving deliverance into one package. Ken's lighthouse portfolio showcases beacons he has visited in the North and South Carolina, Maine, Virginia, Florida, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia, Illinois, and Prince Edward Island, Canada (so far). If ever a subject was begging to be in a framed photograph, perhaps it is the lighthouse!
The amazing red rock desert landscapes of two national parks located near one another in southeastern Utah near the wonderful little Colorado River town of Moab. Arches National Park has over 2000 wondrous natural rock arches within its borders while Canyonlands has some of the last remaining fully explored areas of the United States. Both parks have unlimited, jaw-dropping vistas of incredible beauty and mind-boggling geology.
