Puddles at Sunrise, York, Maine

Puddles at Sunrise, York, Maine

I love visiting Maine in the summer, especially on the coastline where I can’t get enough of the beaches, lobster rolls, and great scuba diving. One of my favorite spots is the Nubble Light, and I wanted to give it a try for a sunrise photo on a trip I took last summer. But good sunrises are driven by cloud structure, and the sunrise forecast on SunsetWX was consistently unfavorable. Then on one morning things looked a little bit better, so I chanced it.

The Brooklyn Bridge and Freedom Tower, New York City

The Brooklyn Bridge and Freedom Tower, New York City

In 2014, I took a trip to visit friends in New York City. I had long wanted to take photos of the Brooklyn Bridge, so I convinced my friends to join me on a photography expedition. Our biggest challenge was the cloudy weather that made finding good light a challenge. Fortunately for us, New York creates its own light if you wait long enough.

Pedestrian Bridge, Laramie Rail Yard, Laramie, Wyoming

I’ve previously posted two other photos of the pedestrian bridge over the rail yard in Laramie, Wyoming. The first one featured the bridge after sunset during blue hour, and the second one showed a big wide angle view of the bridge and the rail yard right before sunset. This is the third photo of the series, showing the motion of a train passing through the rail yard with a colorful sunset in the background.

Clouds Over the Ridge, Quartz Lake, Colorado

Clouds over the Ridge, Quartz Lake, Colorado

In 2018, I did a solo backpacking trip to Quartz Lake in Colorado’s South San Juan Wilderness. When planning this trip, I had in mind three photos – a sunset, nighttime, and sunrise photo. I’ve already posted two photos from this trip before – the nighttime photo showing Mars and the Milky Way and the sunrise photo showing the surrounding ridges over Quartz Lake. This photo is the third from the series – the sunset photo taken shortly after I had arrived at the campsite.

Sunset in the Mountains, Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado

Sunset in the Mountains, Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado

When I lived in Colorado, I loved driving from Denver to the Rocky Mountain National Park to hike and take photos. One of my favorite spots was the Forest Canyon Overlook, which I featured in another photo I shared a while back. This overlook from the top of the spectacular Trail Ridge Road offers unparalleled views of the surrounding mountains, valleys, and tundra, making it a must see location for any landscape photographer.
