“Beyond”

After observing the promising skies, I decided to go check out Mala Pier for sunset as it’s been on the list and left totally in awe of what just happened for a few brief moments. The most challenging thing about photographing a sunset here in Hawaii is catching it at it’s peak. Due to our location, the sunsets are very quick, vibrant, and colors can be very intense! There is literally a major difference in images spaced just 20 seconds apart, so catching that perfect moment at a spot is what it’s all about. This, is one of those moments……. Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas from Andrew Shoemaker Photography!

Reflections by scottsmorra

Elowah Falls reflected in a small pool below the falls. Elowah is one of my favorite waterfalls in the Columbia River Gorge of Oregon due to the vibrant and lush spring vegetation which surrounds the waterfall. It’s an amazing place to spend a cool spring morning.

This image was inspired by Marc Adamus who was the first photographer that I know of to capture this reflection. Thanks Marc!

Curvy Ripples of Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes, DVNP by PatrickMarsonOng

Death Valley National Park, third location in our itinerary, a 200 miles drive down South of the amazing Mono Lake.
That sucky feeling where exhaustion and fatigue kicks in during the first few days of your trip and what made it worst, it’s accompanied by extreme coughs and colds! Ha bummer! The reason behind it? Our foolishness of spending 2 nights in Yosemite’s unheated tents!! !@#$%!!!! Lesson learned!

Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes, a definite must see place in DVNP. Dunes can get as high as 100 feet and it’s way bigger than what they seem! Lol! It’s constantly changing landscape that gets more interesting on different light conditions. Gets tricky tho as you need to hike in to the middle part of the dunes to escape those footprints.

Got an amazing tip from buddy Paul (owe you big time man!). Take it during sunrise, stop a few km before the parking area and walk into the dunes from there. Fewer footprints and the dunes are half the size so it’s easier. Well, it’s easy if your not sick at all :-((. I was already feeling dizzy halfway in and the continuous hike up and down on soft sand, took 3x the effort!! Not good, not good at all. So I told myself enough for that day since we still have the next day’s sunrise. Took a couple of shots on twilight and golden hour, then hiked back at a slower pace. Barely made it but happy with what I got. Woooot! For the love of this hobby! Hope you enjoy this image! Cheers!
