Study in White

At a height of 10,450 feet, the top of Rendezvous Mountain sees a lot of wind and snow during the winter. Everything is covered in white, making for a very monochrome landscape. Even the sturdy trees have a hard time standing up to this kind of weather and are quickly weighed down by the snow.

Rock Pocket

The Narrows in Zion is great place for a hike through the cold water. During a flood the rocks are lifted up and pushed into unique little pockets carved out of the wall. It almost looks like someone has carefully selected and stored each individual rock there.

A Storm is Coming…

…but the road is clear! Time to get to the mountains!

Green and Red and Blue

The greenish water to the red lighthouse to the blue sky made quite the rainbow of colors at the breakwater. It was very cold, and I was standing on a icy pier with water on each side of me, so I didn’t take long to get this shot and get back in the car!

Wintery Travel Plans

I’m already mentally scoping out photo spots for my trip to Wisconsin this Christmas. Until then, I’ll have to settle for editing this icy image from last year. The combination of the sunrise and the ice formations from the waves crashing at Cave Point almost made it feel like being on another planet.

Dreaming of Snow

It may not feel like winter yet to you, but up to three feet of snow is predicted to fall in the Sierra Nevada over the next few days. That forecast makes me ready to head out in weather like this to enjoy some fresh snow. What are you hoping to do this winter?

Moving Up The Narrows

Hiking up The Narrows in Zion requires getting wet. I’m normally looking for any excuse to get in the water with a tripod to get a shot of water like this flowing by, but for this hike it was required instead of optional.

Kerið

This is one of the first things I saw in Iceland, and I immediately knew this was a very unique country. The crazy green water in this volcanic crater contrasting with the sky really blew me away.

Icebergs

A trip to Iceland should start with some ice. While much of the country is very green, I wanted to make sure I got to see the glaciers. This boat tour of Glacier Lagoon, or Jökulsárlón got us up close and personal with the glacier and the many icebergs that break off from it and float in the water. It was crazy to see this pure blue ice moving around the lagoon, and knowing that these were just tiny chunks of the massive glacier.

A Wolf in the Not So Wild

I was very close to this wolf, but was also pretty safe from him at the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center. These particular wolves can’t be released into the wild for various reasons, but can be observed quite close up. I was not enjoying the very cold weather, but this wolf didn’t seem to mind. We could both appreciate the falling snow, for me because it meant I was going skiing the next day, and the wolf just seemed to like having snow on his nose.
