Fall River Diversion Dam

I’ve photographed this diversion dam a number of times, but the light was pretty lovely last night after the sun had set. Here are three versions of the same location with differing amounts of color left in the sky and reflected moonlight.

Mud Lake

Mud Lake is a town, a wildlife management area, and a lake in eastern Idaho. The lake is fairly large, shallow, muddy, and full of bugs and birds. It is a place I visit frequently to look at birds and to make photographs. Here are a few recent photographs from a couple of excursions.

Trees near Ditches and Roads

I’m starting a new body of work and because I can’t think of a better title, I’m calling it Trees near Ditches and Roads. It sort of has to do with irrigation. It sort of has to do with accessibility. It sort of has to do with private property. It sort of has to do with a lot of things, but it mostly has to do with form and light and color. Here are a couple of efforts from this evening.

Sagebrush and Sky (along Highway 33)

Last Summer I made a lot of sagebrush and sky photographs. I’m still making a few of them. Here is one from the other evening.

Fish Creek Dam

My friend Brian and I visited Fish Creek Dam (near Carey, ID) earlier in the week. I hadn’t been before, but had seen photographs of the impressive structure and have been wanting to photograph for some time. It was pretty magnificent, and a bit overwhelming. I managed to make a couple of photographs I’m happy with, but might need to make another visit to explore it a bit more. Here are the best results:

Two Photographs of the Same Tree

These two photographs (both photographs are of the same tree) were taken shortly before and after sunset at one of my favorite local locations to make photographs, a quiet little spot along the Teton River near Sugar City. Both photographs are stitched from three separate images using a 24mm tilt shift lens (a pretty sweet tool).

More Sagebrush and Sky: Double Rainbow

It was a mess out on the desert today. Hail storms, lightning, wind, rain, and cold. At the end of the evening though the storms cleared, the winds calmed, the sun parted, and this happened:

Meadow Lake under Full Moon

My friend David invited me to go camping and fishing at Meadow Lake in the Lemhi Mountains last week. I brought Ethan and we had a great time fishing and exploring. Here is a view of the Lake under the full moon at 11:30 pm.
