One of my favorite experiences is boondock camping in our truck camper in the middle of a high Sierra meadow just breathing in all the smells and soaking in the gorgeous views. It is on these camping trips where we have no plans or expectations of photographing landscapes, that I like to crawl out of bed at sunrise to photograph the native grasses and weeds surrounding our campsite backlit by the early morning sun and capture some compositions before I either crawl back into bed for more sleep or fix myself a strong cup of coffee.

Unusually cold and wet weather for June in Lassen Volcanic National Park resulted in beautifully foggy conditions as the sun rose over Manzanita Lake and illuminated the mist rising above the lake surface a golden glow.

An early morning spent hiking the Boy Scout trail in Redwood National and State Parks as the fog ebbed and flowed in the forest. The diffuse light was perfect for photographing the proliferation of mossy trees sprinkled in and amongst the redwoods.

If you ever find yourself in Westminster, Colorado, just north of Denver, I highly recommend an early morning trip to the Butterfly Pavilion, one of the first non-profit insect zoos in the United States. It’s conservatory has over 1,200 butterflies of various species, sizes and colors. It takes a little while for your lens to adapt to the rainforest humidity, so bringing a lens cloth is highly recommended, but I thoroughly enjoyed exploring compositions and capturing these little beauties using a wide aperture with my telephoto lens for a bokeh effect.
