After getting shut out at Glacier Point for a number of years, I was finally rewarded with some great light on my last visit. I started shooting as soon as the first bit of color stole across the sky and eventually the entire Western end of the valley was lit up. The irony here was that I was hoping there would be few to no clouds on this particular trip as I was there to shoot the Milky Way, along with quite a few other photographers. As I set up my tripod, I overheard a park ranger giving a lecture behind me on where the Milky Way WOULD be if you could, in fact, see it. I was starting to feel pretty depressed at this point as I had made multiple trips to Glacier point without much to show for it. Two summers ago I was smoked out by a huge fire, last year too many clouds for the Milky Way, and multiple trips in between with no sunset or sunrise. As I stared sulkingly off into the horizon, I noticed a faint bit of color in the clouds. Within just a few minutes the entire sky had lit up and the poor ranger was left with only a handful of people as the crowd moved en masse to the railing and began shooting like mad.

The Milky Way was a no show that night, but at least I walked away with my first decent sunset at Glaicer Point in four years. I'll be headed back to try the Milky Way at least one more time this year, so fingers crossed!

The surface of these hills have this crust-like structure that will leave prints when walked across. People are restricted from walking on the hills, but animals of course can roam free. The prints left from them will remain for years.

This may be a tad dark, but that seems to be a thing with me. :-/

Taking a break from waterfalls... here is a frozen soap bubble. I haven't had many opportunities to shoot these this winter has we have had very few days where it is cold enough. I tried again Friday morning but it was a complete failure due to windy conditions and not great light. Hopefully it will get cold enough soon and I can tray again. In the mean time here is one from an earlier attempt this winter:)

Taken a couple of months ago in the Columbia River Gorge. Wouldn't be surprised if this one is just a trickle now.
