As ice caves go, I've seen and done so many of them they all start to look the same - intensely beautiful and luminous but hard to capture a sense of the place with only a camera. I could spend as much time as I want exploring passageways just like this here on my Alaska tours, there are dozens of miles of them just in this one region! But despite all that access I am usually more interested in helping others make the images they want than I am making them myself, as I recognize what an amazing environment this must be for the first timers out there especially! This day I got to join the the fun too though. There we were, hiking by headlamp inside completely dark portions of the cave deep underneath the glacier, and I spotted these interesting striations on the ceiling. This caused us to stop here for a light paint, and using only a headlamp I lit the scene from around the corner, returning to my tripod only for the 30 second exposure at f/5.6 and ISO 1600 it took to capture it.

There we were... camped out at nearly 7000ft in Alaska on a remote glacier, endured some tent-testing 50mph winds earlier in the day and now here we are at sunset, heading over to the edge, looking through this gap in the rocks and 5000 vertical feet strait down to the glacial rivers below. I particularly liked how all the glaciers flowed together in this image, but I doubt any photo could capture an experience as amazing as being here. It was certainly one of the most breathtaking views of my entire life as the moon rose near twilight. Hope you enjoy.

Our amazing group for this 2-week expedition included individuals from 4 continents who certainly got some of the best shots of their lives!
From one of our favorite campsites in the wilderness of Alaska. Drone photography like this is part of all my AK summer trips. You can see 10 miles of glacier here, so with subjects this big an aerial view is the way to go. Only 37 batteries later, I have the shot I wanted with this 24-image panorama, haha! Hope you enjoy.
Been a fun summer here in Alaska. You are looking toward the Flood Glacier and high peaks of the Boundary ranges here. This July and August I was fortunate to work with three groups up here in the SE coast and we did more than 50 helicopter flights, 30 nights camping out in locations nobody ever camped at before, spent almost a week inside crystal blue ice caves and pretty much just shot the absolute heck out of it for 6 weeks! Nothing like my Alaska trips! I haven't really gotten to the processing yet but here's a simple one to start. Hope to share more soon.
What can I say? All us landscape photographers know these peaks pretty well. But sometimes, the light is just that good..... And just outside the park (off trail) where I shot this one there's still some fall colours untouched by the fires, and I enjoyed the red on red. Thanks for looking. If you are looking for a very unique Patagonia trip or any other adventure to remote places for shooting in new ways, contact me to sign up for my trip mailing list at firstname.lastname@example.org. Every trip this next year filled up the same day it was listed so the mailing list is the best way to jump onboard with me sometime!
A simple shot which shows off the amazing form of the Coigue tree, a subject that is always ready to be photographed, in the southern fiords of Chile. If you want to go someplace different around the world, contact me to sign up for my mailing list at email@example.com.
