I don’t request this often, because normally I don’t care much and I’m sure you don’t either… But please view this one on black.

A fairly standard sunrise shot from Two Medicine Lake here, nothing groundbreaking… just some pretty sweet light over a pretty gorgeous little lake. It’s having places like this to shoot, even on relax-days when not hiking into the backcountry, that will always keep me coming back to Glacier National Park. It’s become my home away from home.

Anyways, I’m gearing up for some more arctic travel here in a few weeks with my good friend Arild Heitmann. We also have another trip next March that is filling fast! I’m willing to bet these trips to the Arctic will be even more productive than our last. I can’t wait!

Also, I just released a new post-processing instructional video a little while back. It’s packed with some unique techniques and theories about processing you may not find anywhere else. People seem to really be enjoying the videos and have had nothing but great things to say, so I *think* they are helping people… it’s been awesome to see the many before/after shots people have been emailing me. Be sure to check the videos out if you are into that sort of thing. It’s all on my website, as well as more photos, photo tour info, processing instruction via Skype like everyone else is doing, etc, etc.

The Smoking Room by RyanDyar

Smoke from the surrounding wildfires during my two week trip to Glacier NP made itself VERY well known. All day long it was there like some loud drunk frat-dude saying “look at me! I’m here to screw up your good time, bro!”

Fortunately, we were able to use the smoke to our advantage a few times. The smoke can do interesting things to the atmosphere and light color, so not all hope was lost. The haziness in this particular shot was from the fires hundreds of miles away in Washington state… it made the trip across two states to try to screw up my party, but I think I made it work still. Not the most original image ever taken, and a bit predictable for sure… but whatever, I dig it.

Anyways, one of the tours I’m leading in Norway with my good friends Arild and Stian is almost filled, so if you are interested in that trip, now is the time to check it out! I’m willing to bet this trip to the Arctic will be even more productive than our last. I can’t wait!

Getting Gone by RyanDyar

My buddy Miles Morgan and I sat right here at this spot for several hours, making it a bit of an impromptu bachelor party for me while we were supposed to be “scouting” for the rest of our two week trip. No cocaine or strippers at this bachelor party though, just some cool views, good light, and great friends. It was a fairly productive trip despite the lackluster light and unpredictable wildfires.

Lover’s Pass by RyanDyar

A simple shot from one of the happiest days I’ve had out shooting. This was taken about 5 minutes before I proposed to my bride-to-be Candace Bartlett last summer. Almost a year later and we have just a little over a month until the wedding. I’m one lucky dude to get to share my life with a good looking photographer chick!
