Morning Grandeur by jaychong

“Morning Grandeur”

I haven’t been to all the national parks in the USA, but Yosemite National Park has been by far my favorite. To me, the most impressive time of the year is when it snows in the valley. Just everything about it is sublime. I am hopeful for a great snow dump this year, but even more hopeful if I can take a photo of it. Here’s to wishing!

Techy Stuff: Single exposure but I reprocessed the same raw file twice to just recover more details in the sky and shadows in the trees. All processed in Adobe CC /w Luminosity masks.
Thanks for the likes and love. Prints and licensing is available upon request.

Aoraki Love | Mount Cook National Park, New Zealand

I love taking photographs of epic-amazing locations and sharing them to the world. I hope that with this image I can encourage you to visit New Zealand. Be it work, tour, family vacation or a photo journey, make sure you spend a couple of nights and be lost in exploring one of South Island’s top destination, a photographer’s paradise, Aoraki Mt. Cook National Park.

Hooker Valley track, one of the most popular tracks of the National Park, offers stunning views of snow capped mountains, glaciers, huge boulders and raging rivers.

The stunning Mt. Cook sits at the end of Hooker Valley track, waiting to be showcased with the click of the shutter.

Is it amazing? Feel free to share! Cheers guys!

Mesa Arch Dawn by ingejohnsson

Mesa Arch at sunrise, Island in the Sky district of Canyonlands National Park, Utah. Mesa Arch is a pothole arch in Canyonlands National Park, Utah. Canyonlands National Park is a U.S. National Park located in southeastern Utah near the town of Moab. It preserves a colorful landscape eroded into countless canyons, mesas, and buttes by the Colorado River, the Green River, and their respective tributaries. Legislation creating the park was signed into law by President Lyndon Johnson on September 12, 1964. The park is divided into four districts: the Island in the Sky, the Needles, the Maze, and the rivers themselves. While these areas share a primitive desert atmosphere, each retains its own character. Two large river canyons are carved into the Colorado Plateau by the Colorado River and Green River. Author Edward Abbey, a frequent visitor, described the Canyonlands as “the most weird, wonderful, magical place on earthhere is nothing else like it anywhere.”
