Schwabacher Landing is a popular destination for photographers to catch the morning sunlight hitting the Tetons and being reflected in the still waters of beaver ponds along the Snake River as it runs through Grand Teton National Park.
I have been having a lot of problems with my monitor displaying the correct colours, brightness and contrast. I wasn't aware of this until it was pointed out to me and after doing several tests and tweaks I can see this image is now too dark and slightly over saturated. Not always easy to get someone in to calibrate your monitor within the holiday period. I will be deleting some of my images and re-entering at a later date. Thank you for the many votes and favours you have given me.
Excerpt from my latest blog. "Perhaps the most spectacular of many impressive displays of light was the sunset on the second evening of the workshop. Like the fiery breath of a dragon, intense coloration spread across the sky in a slow burn. I smiled like a kid as I gradually widened my compositions to include more and more of the sky lighting up. Gosh the thrill of being a landscape photographer was alive and well." Read the full article here. http://bit.ly/1ch95dr
Ama Dablam from Chukung, Nepal. The last light of the day hits the peak of Ama Dablam (6,812 m) and is reflected in a small glacier river. This is my favorite image that I captured in 2013 so I thought it could do with a re-edit. The original version 'Lighting The Torch' can be seen here: http://bit.ly/1e7IUGO . I'd love to know which one people prefer. Happy New Year!
Madison, WI. After work I looked outside and thought "hm, the sunset might be good today." After an hour or so I was like "nah, it's not that great and I'm lazy. I'll stay inside where it's warm." Then a few minutes later I saw the bottoms of the clouds had little bits of red on them. "WHOA CRAP!" I packed up my stuff, sped off in my car, and literally sprinted to this spot I had in mind. I caught this fantastic sunset just in time!
You may also like the photograph 'Lac Blanc' (it shows the same scenery just a few minutes before with the last sunlight at the mountain summit). I wish all of you the best possible start into the new year! :-) Copyright © 2013 Sven Müller. All rights reserved.
Waiting for the sunset above treeline deep in the Canadian Rockies, the temperature was quickly dropping and the wind howling. The cold starts to set in due to the inactivity, so to pass the time I setup the camera for a self-portrait. Nothing like jumping up and down a 5 foot boulder and running back and forth with a 10 second timer to get you warmed up again. =)
An eerie but spectacular scene of trees where nearly perfectly aligned rows create glowing hallways. At the peak of autumn, the fallen leaves litter the grounds and the remaining leaves are golden yellow and draped over the uncharacteristically straight tree trunks. It is truly a place to get lost and have your mind blown away. This was a 3-image stitch to create the panoramic using a telephoto lens to increase the compression of the scene.

This is processed to be viewed on a dark background so please click on the image or press H on your keyboard. The image is shot during a exceptionally pink sunset by the Sunndalsfjord in Sunndal county in Norway early winter last year. The image consists of 3 exposures and is blended together in photoshop. Thank you for watching.
This is an extremely rare picture!! A full Northern Lights spiral is not common at all, and I have never ever seen a spiral like this before. I suppose this will be a once in a lifetime experience I never will see again. This is a picture shot with my old camera some years ago, so I can`t get the quality any better than this...but since this is a rare photo, I hope you like it anyway....
This is my last image for 2013. Thank you for your support this year! I really appreciate your like/fav and, above all, your comment. I hope all of you have a great, wonderful, and happy new year with your family! I made my SNS account as bellow. I will be using them more in this coming 2014. If you follow me, I'm really glad!
