Vermilion Lakes Sunrise, Banff, Alberta, Canada
A continuation of my sunrise series at Vermilion Lakes…. I returned to Vermilion Lakes after my sunset attempt for another attempt at capturing the infamous scene - this time for sunrise!
Slightly different viewpoint from the one seen in my previous upload... and panorama treatment!
The silence is an awesome sound, we are at first uneasy with so much silence...Then it grows. Please view large as intimate as all photographs should be viewed. (On the silence thing....only on the video do you notice the soundtrack of "crunch,crunch,crunch" very dry snow. This is Yellowstone park, Wyoming, usa. it is geotagged somewhere where there are NOCARS, no Taffic, no noise.
This photo is personally dedicated to Johanna Willemijn!!! :o)

This is famous view from Nevada side its quite close to Sand Harbor. I scouted the area an hour before sundown. There are many trails but this one is close to the highway and I think its got a very good view all around. Its always a challenge to stop the sun, especially when you are using a wide angle. I found that here I needed more than 3 stops GND filter.
Better viewed large.

Tonight at sunset we went to Bear River Bird Refuge just before dusk. We are going again Tuesday. Tonight we ran into "BOILING" carp I mean bubbling/boiling, racoons in legions, lots of Pelicans, and some awesome GREAT BLUE HERONS, Utah sky's were looking good after a stormy day. It snowed all over the region last night. Ogden is a major migratory route, and it's awesome to watch.

The Loch Ard Gorge is part of Port Campbell National Park, Victoria, Australia, about three minutes' drive west of The Twelve Apostles.
The gorge is named after the clipper ship Loch Ard, which ran aground on nearby Muttonbird Island on 1 June 1878 approaching the end of a three-month journey from England to Melbourne. Of the fifty-four passengers and crew, only two survived.
...where the spirits go now,
over the hills where the spirits fly.
All in the golden afternoon
Full leisurely we glide;
For both our oars, with little skill,
By little arms are plied,
While little hands make vain pretense
Our wanderings to guide.
Joined Jamey and his dad and Brian on Saturday for a little off-trail excursion in the Gorge. Can you believe that some people kayak off this thing?
I haven't quite fully recovered from what Jamey advertised as a quarter-mile bushwhack, but it's a good pain. :-)

Last night... or really early this morning, depending on how you look at it... the AMAZING folks at B&C hosted one of the Nikon Night Landscape Workshops.
Our location was near Red Rock Canyon, just outside of Las Vegas. As you can imagine, the light pollution was something that we needed to work with in order to make our Night Landscapes. And since there was ZERO hope of beating the light pollution, we embraced it! The city lights lit up our mountain tops, part of the Keystone Thrust, and made them glow a very beautiful warm color.
I tried something new with this shot. Previously, I had relied on the extra long shutter speed options found in my D810A to create star trails. This time, I used the D500 and it's 30 second maximum shutter speed... and the motor-drive function of the D500. Setting the camera for a 30 second exposure, I engaged the CL capture rate. Then I used the MC-30 remote to lock the D500 into a continuous firing loop. Every 30 seconds, the camera would finish an exposure and immediately rip off another one. Then I walked away from it and let it run. It ran until I filled my memory card. That took nearly three hours.
Once back at the hotel, I was a bit pumped up from the night's shooting, so sleep didn't come right away. Even though it was 3:00AM. So, I started playing with StarStaX.
My initial attempts were marred by all the air traffic near the area. By my rough count there were no less than two dozen flights that entered my frame over the 3 hours.
In StarStaX, I noticed that I could pick and choose the frames that got processed into my final image. I went though all 335 images and deselected the ones that had airplane lighting messing up the image. I was left with 238 total usable images. That is what you see here.
Using the "Gap Filling Mode" and "Comet Mode" together resulting in this stack. A bit of clean up of the foreground was also done in post. (see the original below)
Same Elk as other shot few minutes later as the sun went down, and moon came up. (not the elks moon, but the one at the top, thanks john) The Elk are very relaxed, knowing they have never been shot at in Yellowstone, Poachers were a big problem in the early days of the dark, for decades there one Ranger in the park, Dangerous job! This is along the Lamar Road (Only one open in winter) just out of Mammouth Hot Springs, Montana.
