Smoke in the Valley by gbphotography

Wishing you all Happy and Safe Thanksgiving!!

The folks in Yosemite are in for a very cold Thanksgiving (down to 23 F/ -5 C) holiday, but I would be awesome to see Halfdome covered in snow from Glacier Point.

This image is from last September when it was much warmer, in fact Yosemite and the Easter Sierras were ravaged by wild fires then and there was a visible smoke fog in the valley. But it made for some nice atmosphere during sunrise…..I hope you like it….

Morning Glow by gbphotography

I haven’t been posting images for ages since my move to the US, so it feels good to get images out again. This image here is still from the archives, so I need to get out a shoot new material soon!

During the night of the blood moon on the 8th October 2014 I travelled to the Cholla Cactus Garden in Joshua Tree National Park, California.

I had a fantastic night navigating through these spikey creatures and capturing them under moonlight.

In the morning I was rewarded by this magnificient sunrise!
