What is a Wilderness Area?

Slot Canyon Surprise
Recently one of my customers asked me if I had more slot canyon images than were showing on my website. It seems he wanted to buy one as a birthday gift. This is exactly the kind of motivation I needed to go back and look through the archives, and as usual, what I found surprised me!

A Walk on the Wildside
I have the privilege of living on a small mountain in the foothills of the Cascade Mountain Range, and on top of that mountain is a huge urban wildland park. This week I decided to hike in to what I refer to as my "back yard" and see what kind of late autumn photographs I could find.

Larch Lake and the Scottish Lakes High Camp

Larch Lake and the Scottish Lakes High Camp
While on a backpacking trip in British Columbia a few years back, I asked some experienced backcountry photographers where the best place was to photograph larch trees in the fall. Without hesitation, they unanimously responded, "Larch Lake!". So when my friend Max asked me if I wanted some vouchers to stay in the high camp near there, he didn't have to ask twice!

Yant Flat Isn’t So Flat

Yant Flat Isn’t So Flat
Growing up in south Louisiana, I wasn't familiar with the concept of a "flat". Heck, everything down there is flat. It wasn't until I visited Yosemite that I encountered the term in reference to an area of land. Well, today we'll explore an area called Yant Flat, and it turns out it's not so flat.

Milepost 13
"What do you think, Ed? Should we bother doing the Milepost 13 shot?", my friend Jeremy asks as we head to Monument Valley after our all night photography shoot? Of course we had to do the Milepost 13 shot! Who cares how many millions of times it's been done - by someone else!
