|Badwater Basin, Death Valley, Sunrise|
This image is part of a sequence I am working on for a show of my landscape images, both single frame and panoramic, for September in Carmel, Indiana. Then in October the show moves to Toledo for the second annual benefit show where all the proceeds are donated to 1Matters, an organization that assists individuals and families achieve domestic autonomy.
In all likelihood this image will be part of both shows.

|Glacier Lagoon, Iceland|
A side note about Jokulsarion was part of several movies, A View to Kill, Die Another Day and Batman Begins. There a car chase scene that appeared in Die Another Day shot at this location - it was deemed the greatest movie car chase of all times - they used a Jaguar and an Aston Martin.
Image re-processed using Lightroom 4 and Photoshop CS6. I am enjoying the parametric quality of the development module sliders in LR4 - it allows for really good separation in the highlight and shadow areas.

|Iceland, Sleeping Bear-berg|
This 'bear' floated about 300 yards out into the Atlantic Ocean before the tides pushed the structure back to just offshore of the black sand beach. Moments after making this image the iceberg split apart and was carried off into the ocean...
I re-processed this image in Lightroom 4 with its many added features in the development module, specifically the shadow, clarity and highlight sliders...

|Iceland - Black Sandy Beach with Vatnajökull in the distance,|
In the background of this image is Vatnajökull, which is the largest glacier in Iceland and covers more then 8% of the country. At one point this glacier existed right next to the Atlantic Ocean. Over the years the glacier has receded causing the melting ice to form the lagoon...

|Gullfoss Waterfall, Iceland|
We had just finished quite a fairly miserable shooting day due to wind and lots of rain. Sitting in the car trying to stay dry looking over the falls we noticed this wedding party....Being a photographer, even in the wind and the rain, how could you just sit there and pass this scene up - SO. my friend Michael Pressman and I grabbed our cameras and went and joined the wedding party - grabbed a few frames and jumped back in the car. No one said a word...
I just remembered this image today and decided it was time to let it out of the hard drive....those two are not even feeling the weather.....

|The Viennese Waltz, Dancing with the Stars|
There are a few other magical moments in this Waltz but you will really need to be there to enjoy those moments - can't give too much away....
Dancing with the Stars will be at the Tropicana Hotel in Las Vegas through July 7th....
The image was post processed using NIK software, Lightroom 4 and Photoshop CS6.
PS: This is not an HDR image. It is a single exposure.

|Peter Gabriel, Genesis|
Of late I have been using NIK software and Photoshop quite a bit and this image was re-processed with a new workflow - those who follow my blog know I am huge fan of re-working images in this manner - always something new to learn.
'The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway' was a concept album (yes album - round disk with grooves) circa 1976 followed by a tour of the same name...

|The Cabins - Valley of Fire|
These cabins were constructed in 1935 soon after Valley of Fire became a state park. Made of sandstone they were used for many many years by travelers visiting the park. They are now being preserved as a reminder of the work done by Thomas W Miller, the first state Park Commission Chairman. Almost 9,000 people visited the newly opened park in 1936. today over 200,000 visitors enjoy the Valley of Fire each and every year.
