I have two friends that are currently visiting London and happened to find the Ice Cave billboard in the London Tube! So far they have been found in the Monmument, Waterloo and Holborn Stations.  If visiting London and riding the Tube take a look and snap a pic! Thanks! Special thanks to Brian and LM for sending these pics! IMG_2405 13754621_1212227898840253_4417410335911963883_n IMG_2474 IMG_2473 IMG_2470

Chongqing China

One of my Nephews fraternity brother’s is living in Chongqing China this summer and was able to grab these photos from this massive billboard in China! He has feelers out for other sites in China, so I’m hopeful to see some photos from there too!

Thank you, Gabe and Bevon! This is awesome!

Updated Shot on iPhone-Ice Cave Locations #4

Montreal, Hamburg, an Australian Magazine and more!

This weeks update is exciting!


The Montreal location was a bit challenging to find as my best guess was not correct at all, but my new friend and friend of a friend Nicole Best (https://plus.google.com/+NicoleBest) from Montreal tracked it down on a busy freeway. As she was getting the photo of the billboard, a Trooper pulled up behind her car and briefly questioned what was going on! Fortunately, after a brief discussion, let her finish and be on her way! Here’s the billboard from Montreal!

Montreal-Ice Cave

Thank you Nicole!


I have received a few smaller from the Hamburg station but I was aware that there was a large banner hanging in the station… A friend of my sisters from way back lives in Hamburg, Germany and was heading there to pick up a friend and was able to capture a few images of the banner! Thank you Sebastian! I love these images!

Shot on iPhone- Ice Cave Update #2- LA, Hamburg, NYC and Bangalore

Wow! I’m not prepared to describe what having a photo of yours chosen for an ad campaign of this size feels like yet. Every photographer loves to see their work printed big but I had never imagined one of my images on the side buildings! I don’t have the words yet!

I have started to get a few billboard photos from LA, Hamburg and Bangalore, India that are in this post! So here goes and thanks for looking! The Dallas billboard was in my previous update!

(Note if you happen to see a photo of a billboard already take, please still send your photo I’d love to see every photo taken!)

Also, there are 25 billboards that I’m aware of, but apparently there are smaller installations all around the country that I’m not aware of, so I’d love to see those too! Like these images from the NYC Subway(courtesy of my good friend Stephen Shadrach, somebody get him an iPhone! 🙂 ) :


My good friend Bernie Villadiego D.D.S headed to LA and was able to capture the two LA locations. He took two quick videos and a few still shots!

Sunset and Vine

Here’s a few stills:

A long time friend was taking her kids to the beach and snapped these photos during the day!

I also got a few stills from a train station in Hamburg, DE. These are stunning with the backlit display!

Quick trip to the Pacific Northwest

Recently made a quick trip to the mountains just east of Seattle, WA.

Had a few opportunities for photography that’s different for me! All prints are available for purchase: http://www.sandquistphotography.com/Misc-Landscapes/ or just click on any photo for more details.

I use Smugmug.com to host my photos and handle prints etc. They are currently having a sale and offering 25% off to my readers. Here’s the link to start building your online photo gallery

Rarely get a chance to capture moss covered trees!

Recently I spent a few days in the Pacific Northwest. Just east of Seattle, WA to be more specific. I’ve photographed in this area before, but have never been able to capture much that excited me. This trip was different.

Here are three images that I am pleased with. You can also view all 3 images in a Gallery at Sandquistphotography.com(Prints are also available there) I’m grateful for my past year experience in The Arcanum. I’ve had two incredible teachers that have help me learn this craft! I highly recommend it if you want to expand your photographic and visual art!

I used Adobe Lightroom CC/Adobe Photoshop CC and On1 Perfect Photo Studio 10 to edit these.

In the Moonlight at Bryce Canyon!

Before the Moonlight the Moon Rises

My last visit to Bryce Canyon was 30+ years ago as a youngster with my family. It’s been on my list for quite awhile. Our first thought was to get there and shoot the stars over Bryce Canyon. Then we actually looked at the Moon Forecast and discovered it was a day after the full moon. So we decided to go shoot the moon! 🙂 What a surreal experience. I definitely recommend any photographer visit Bryce Canyon during a full moon!

This brings up another thought that I’ve been curious about for awhile. Bryce Canyon is an under 5 hour drive from my home, can easily get there in an afternoon. It’s someplace I’ve wanted to visit for a long time and just haven’t made the effort. This trip was a spur of the moment trip that just worked. I’m interested to know how others check off their own “to do” lists?  Do you plan it? Or just go with the flow and jump when the opportunity arises?

I’ve generally been in the later group, just go with the flow and go when the opportunities arise, but I’m beginning to think I should start making a few more plans!

Onto the photos! (or view in Gallery Mode on my Sandquist Photography Page)

Here’s a capture of Moon rising over Bryce Canyon

Its interesting to see the stars and jet trails and the full moon light on the rocks!

The weather forecast for the weekend was scattered thunderstorms and showers off and on the whole time. Wanting to try and capture some of that weather I asked my son if he wanted to go watch the sun rise in Red Rock on a Saturday morning. He said, “Sure”!

We ventured out in a steady rain at about 5:15 from my house and this location is about a 20 minute drive. We parked the car and headed out in the rain!

It was cold and wet.

As the sky started to brighten we could see a few breaks in the clouds and fortunately the rain stopped after about 15 minutes. We did find one break in the clouds that was enough to show us a glimpse of color. The real show happened as the sun started to get warmer. The clouds started to lift, which led to an amazing light show!

Here’s an image of the morning light hitting the mountains.

Clouds over Rainbow Mountain

Here’s another panoramic image of the wispy clouds over the Spring Mountains:

Cloudy Rainbow Mountain

We were excited by this display and just as we were getting ready to head for home a rain shower appeared and provided an amazing rainbow you see in the first image of this post!

I was able to grab this iPhone Pano of the full rainbow here:

Red Rock Rainbow

More images from Red Rock can be found in the Red Rock Gallery
