Mother Nature’s Landscape Art. An lot of people spend a lot of time (myself included) creating various forms of visual art, but do we even approach the level of the landscape art in the world around us? I think not. Not even close. At best we can only create a copy or representation of what we see in person. I just hope to give others an idea of what it’s like if they cannot visit for themselves. Mother Nature’s landscape art has taken eons to create and comes in an amazing variety of forms, sizes, and colors. I love the endlessly bizarre shapes that erosion has created, and well as the subtle bands of color imbedded in the rocks. To think that each of these bands represents tens or hundreds of thousands of years is hard to even comprehend. We humans are late-comers to a long story, but we arrive when there is much to appreciate and enjoy. Let’s do our part to preserve this art for those yet to come. ___________________________________ Stacked image focus blended. Foreground: stacked, 35mm, f/4.5, ISO 10,000, 30 sec., Sky: stacked, 35mm, 10 sec, ISO 6400, 10 sec. Low Level Lightning (LLL) was used. Camera WB 4200K, LED color temperature 4900K. This combination was used to create a neutral light color to render the landscape color as true to nature as possible.

This is a small mountain lake in central Utah. I was privileged to shoot this June with Royce Bair @roycebairphoto and Robert McKendrick @naturalwildimage. About this time the wildfiresmoke was moving into Utah and the area we planned to shoot down in the lowlands was very compromised. We decided to try a high mountain lake in hopes we’d be above the smoke. To our delight the area was clear enough to get some very nice exposures. Thanks to Royce and Robert! 🙏 This is a stacked panorama at 16mm vertically, f/2.8, 30 sec, ISO 12,800. If you want to know why I used ISO 12,800, well I cannot tell you because I don’t know, lol. Mistake actually. When I got home I was surprised at the ISO, 😂. With enough stacked images the noise is not a significant issue though. Have a great weekend!

Some surprises are good. In general you don’t want many surprises when you are out alone at night. I thought this night was a lost cause because of the clouds. I decided to hang around anyway and was pleasantly surprised. The light pollution from a nearby town illuminated the clouds and created a pleasant effect. You can still get a peak of the stars and Milky Way to let you know it’s not just a sunset. These large monolithic rock structures are called Towers and rise majestically from the desert landscape, dominating the surrounding scene. The 4WD high clearance road to get there is also fun. There are a number of these towers scattered throughout the nearby desert landscape, and there are climbing routes for the brave. Stacked image. 20 mm, 10 sec, f/2.8, ISO 10,000. There is Low Level Lightning (LLL). Love those rock rocks of the SW!
