More Ice Reflections

More Ice Reflections

Blue Ice

This post concludes my series from the Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon. The first image Floating Ice and the second image Ice Reflections.

This series allowed me to reflect a bit! I guess there’s something about the blue reflecting glow on the glasslike water.

As a parent of grade school children, I do wonder about the future. Specifically, the types of careers available ten years from now?

Automation through robots and artificial intelligence are here. Jobs are vanishing before our eyes. Making a living as a delivery driver will soon become extinct through driverless trucks. Making a living in the new future will be far different than now!

So the question is how people will make a living in the future?

I know there are smarter people than me trying to figure this out, but what used to be a far off thought experiment is rapidly becoming a reality. I suppose it’s never a bad to reflect on the hard questions in life!

Being Featured in Apple’s 2016 Shot on iPhone Campaign

Two months later I get a mysterious… Continue Reading

Mesquite Sand Dunes Sunrise!

Sunstar over Death Valley Sometimes you have to be an early riser to catch a landscape in its most pristine state. For this shot of the Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes, I arrived in Death Valley National Park at 5:30 a.m. Wearing my trusty headlamp, I began my hike in. (You’d be amazed at how dark…

Anitas in Reine Norway

Anitas in Reine Norway

You can nearly smell the briny waters of the Norwegian Sea’s Vestfjord—literally “the West fjord”—in this brisk scene. I shot it in the remote fishing village of Reine in Norway’s Nordland region. And just behind me? Anita’s Seafood (https://www.facebook.com/anitasseafood/), a  restaurant and fish market serving both fresh-caught fish and dried cod. Arctic cod spawn in these waters during…

Northern Lights of Norway!

Northern Lights of Norway!

Finally got to see the Northern Lights! Seeing—and photographing!—the Northern Lights has long been on my bucket list. So, from transportation, accommodations, and all the usual travel details, I had planned as much as I could several months in advance for my recent trip to Lofoten, Norway. Still, there was one thing which was decidedly…

Hamnøy Village

Hamnøy Village

It took four separate (and lengthy!) airplane trips and another one-hour ride by car to get to what feels like the end of the earth. But all that travel—and braving the elements above the Arctic Circle—was well worth it. This is winter in Hamnøy Village, located at the far west end of Norway’s Lofoten Islands. The…

Gold Rush on McGee Creek

Aspen aglow over McGee Creek Early last month, some photographers friends, my son, and I met up near Mammoth Lakes, California in the Eastern Sierra Mountains.

Ask Doug: Do you have any special tricks for photographing flowers and gardens?

Orange Beach Glow

Carlsbad Sunset Almost Missed For every gorgeous sunset, I have been lucky enough to capture on film there are scores of others that get away from me. Sometimes I’m a few minutes too late. Sometimes too many clouds muscle in, obscuring my view. And, sometimes, admittedly, a particular sunset just doesn’t look as spectacular when…

Sandstone X Marking the Spot!

Sandstone X Marking the Spot!

X Does Mark the Spot Try as I might, I couldn’t capture the grandeur of White Pocket right away. I would have to head back to this special spot again and again at various times to watch the textures and colors that made up this sedimentary “X” shift in the light.   White Pocket is…
