The Travel & Light Adventures of Captain Photo
I almost wish I'd taken the Jeep down to photograph at the Algodones Sand Dunes today since Mai is on the East Coast this week and because I sucked so badly at golf this morning... plus it was really cold on the course. Heading down to the warm desert near the Mexican border in Southern California just sounds really good.
Captain Photo Jeeps through the American Southwest once again and comes home with another big batch of stunning HDR photographs. His favorites are in this gallery!
Valley of the Gods is a bonus attraction when you're touring through southern Utah because it's totally free on BLM land. It's right on the way if you're going to Monument Valley. There's no ranger station, restrooms, or visitor center. Primitive camping is available or simply...
Dead Horse Point Photography The large attractions here are Arches and the Islands in the Sky section of Canyonlands National Parks. Another worthy place, and one that I didn't have time to check out last year, is Dead Horse Point. It's a small Utah State park on the way into Canyonlands. Seeing plenty of cool photos from here, I made it my target for sunrise to see what it's all about.
Captain Photo visits Old Town in Tallin, Estonia. See my HDR photography and get a restaurant tip for authentic Russian food & beer. Also, how I process photos while traveling.
This gallery contains the best photos from a road trip through Northern California and Oregon. Cannon Beach and the California redwoods are the highlights. Mai couldn't wait to get up on that fallen redwood log to do the Tree Pose for me. You might also be interested to learn that these are the tallest trees on earth. Many grow well over 300 feet tall.
You know that I seldom hype the multitude of new gadgets and photo software that comes along unless I've tried it and it works for me. I depend on quality products to make my photographs and the all new Aurora 2017 is one software that I'm not living without!
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!
