On the third day of our photo trip on the Blue Ridge Parkway earlier this year, Steve Carter and I spent the last few hours of daylight up at a perch known as Rough Ridge, not far from the small town of Blowing Rock, North Carolina. There’s a relatively short, but occasionally steep, trail that ..read more

Nikon officially released the long-awaited update to the Z6ii camera last week. The Z6iii sounds like a fine product. The rumor mill and chatterverse being what they are, the release of the Z6iii–which itself had been the subject of endless speculation for a couple of years–more or less immediately began the process of discussion about ..read more

Much of my first afternoon at Shenandoah National Park back in April was spent investigating overlooks located in the central section of Skyline Drive. The Drive–the only road in the park–runs the length of the property, 105 miles from Front Royal in the north, to Rockfish Gap in the south, and it contains 75 named ..read more

I’ve blogged on the subject of using long lenses to render landscape imagery; I’ve blogged, more than once, on the subject of the transformational impact fog can have on the landscape. Now, I want to briefly show what the combination of the two can produce. I mentioned my mid-April trip to Shenandoah National Park in ..read more

We live in a world where I can, if I like, do just about anything to an image. I can make the noon-day light appear dramatic, I can replace a drab sky with a spectacular one, I can liven up the scene by adding a unicorn (or two!). And, what’s more, I can do all ..read more

The company that hosts my website has had, shall we say, some significant “issues” of late. The specifics aren’t worth discussing here, but as a result of these problems I’ve spent some time recently browsing through some of the many photo galleries on my site, including several that I haven’t looked at in quite some ..read more
