Essence in Photography
The Travel & Light Adventures of Captain Photo
If you love photos of a long straight highway disappearing into dramatic scenery like the iconic photo spot on Highway 163 going into Monument Valley, then this road and view of Mt. Shasta, is worthy of your attention!
Two days photographing at Bandon Beach on the Oregon coast kept me in constant awe as the light changed so dramatically, especially during sunset the second day!
While processing this HDR tonight, I experienced a "note-to-self" moment. "Next time I'm over on highway 395, plan at least one extra day at Lone Pine for some quality time photographing the Alabama Hills!" This place is incredible, if you like weird rocks piled in odd formations, which I do. Guilty.
It was blue hour and suddenly, the expanding light of the approaching sun below the horizon seemed to explode in the distance in contrast to the still starry night above. It looked delicious! The Jeep came to a quick stop and tripod was setup to catch that if I could.
Photos from three days at Mt. Shasta, California. Hopefully, also some inspiration to help you make better vacation pictures on your next trip.
January 1, 2016. Over new year breakfast this morning, Mai wanted to play one of her normal "woo woo" games."Let's set our intentions for the year, baby!"I feign a mild displeasure while conjuring up my best response because there's no escaping the inevitable. Attempting to add a bit of lightness and gain more time, I reply; "I LOVE that game!"
Here are two beautiful pictures taken while sightseeing Prague at night taken by Captain Photo during a short visit to the Czech Republic this year.

The New, Easy and Powerful Way to Picture Perfect HDR!
Aurora HDR Pro is the only app I use now for my HDR work. All the goodies I used to need from both Photomatix and Photoshop are now all smartly integrated into this one app. It’s magical how HDR is evolving and becoming so much easier for me to make images like these. I also know that you can quickly learn to do it too, even if only just to make your own awesome vacation pictures!
