Ice Cold!

I wish I was feeling ice cold right now! It hit the 90s in the Bay Area today, much too hot for my liking. I’m thinking back to when I was on this amazing beach in Iceland two years ago. There is a huge bay surrounded by a glacier nearby where icebergs break off from the glacier and float out into the ocean. Small chunks wash up on the black sand beach, like this unique little bit of ice.

Cold Enough for a Good Sunset

I expected it to be cold in Banff, but it was bitterly cold! This sunset was enough to convince us to go out onto the ice on Lake Louise to get some pictures, but the orange glow wasn’t enough to warm us up!

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.
