I took this photo on day 7 of my January trip to Death Valley. It all started with a VERY early morning drive 40 miles south of the Badwater basin. It was a few hours before sunrise, and I was on a mission. You see, the day before, I was taking some photos of @wildernessinfluencer on the side of the road. By the end o the day I realized I lost one of his hands. That’s right folks, I got up several hours before sunrise so I could retrace my steps along the side of the road in search for a tiny plastic hand that fell off my dol.... *clears throat* action figure. I searched two areas by headlamp, but couldn’t find his dainty little man hand. I felt a bit let down, then started driving north again along Badwater road. It was then that I noticed some clouds in the night sky, and figured there might be some interesting light on the Panamint range at sunrise. I stopped on the side of the road, and set up this composition in the dark. I hung out there all through sunrise, and there was a brief moment when some warm direct sunlight illuminated the mountains. This photo was taken on @fujifilm_profilm Provia 100F 8x10 film using my @arcaswissusa F Metric 8x10 with a Nikkor 450mm lens. . . . . . . . . . #tagitplanetearth #landscapelover #filmisnotdead #believeinfilm #largeformat #8x10 #provia100f #ishootfujifilm #landscape_lover #igshotz @igshots #worldplaces #travelandlife #TheBest_Capture #landscape_captures #pixel_ig #keepitwild #leaveitbetter @deathvalleynps #deathvalley #earthfocus #naturephotography #master_shots #epic_captures #beautyofnature #roamtheplanet #earthpix #getlost

My Day 7 video from my January trip to Death Valley goes live this Saturday on my Youtube Channel. This still-frame from the video gives a feel for how vast Death Valley really is. You can walk for miles and miles, yet somehow feel like you are exactly where you started. I will be heading out again in the next several weeks to the canyons of southern Utah. I look forward to pointing my camera at interesting things, and getting passed by that pesky Prius. . . . #tagitplanetearth @wildernessinfluencer

I took this photo on day 6 of my January trip to Death Valley and Zion National Park. I spent much of the day exploring new locations in hopes of finding some interesting subjects. It was great to do some exploring, though I didn’t find anything especially noteworthy. Later that day, I drove to this particular location. I arrived in the early afternoon, found my composition, then waited for some nice light after sunset. This was taken on Fuji Provia 100F film with my Arca-Swiss F Metric 8x10 camera using a Nikkor 150mm SW lens. . . . . . . . #tagitplanetearth #landscapelover #filmisnotdead #believeinfilm #largeformat #8x10 #provia100f #ishootfujifilm #landscape_lover #igshotz @igshots #worldplaces #travelandlife #TheBest_Capture #landscape_captures #pixel_ig #keepitwild #leaveitbetter @deathvalleynps #deathvalley #earthfocus #naturephotography #master_shots #epic_captures #beautyofnature #roamtheplanet #earthpix #getlost @fujifilm_profilm

My day 6 from my winter trip goes live this Saturday on my Youtube Channel. In that video I return to Death Valley, and find yet another mylar balloon. I collected about 8 of them on my recent trip, all of which traveled enormous distances before eventually coming to rest in the wilderness of the Mojave Desert. I looked on a map, and these balloons might have traveled from as far as Bakersfield, or perhaps even the Los Angeles area. I collected all the balloons, and plan on using them in a project designed to raise awareness of this flying trash. Please do your part, and never release mylar balloons. Dispose of them properly, or never buy them in the first place. Oh, and I also exposed some 8x10 film in that video. 🤩#leaveitbetter #tagitplanetearth

I found this scene while wandering along a creek on a chilly evening in Zion National Park this past January. This section of ice had melted and re-frozen on several occasions, resulting in some very interesting formations. I took this photo on Fuji Provia 100F film with my @arcaswissusa F Metric 8x10 using my Nikkor 300mm 5.6 lens with overextended bellows to achieve this closeup image. This is one of the few images where I depended on a loupe for fine focus. It would have been difficult to set the front tilt and the focus without it. I used a Wista 5x loupe. . . . . . . #tagitplanetearth #landscapelover #filmisnotdead #believeinfilm #largeformat #8x10 #provia100f #ishootfujifilm #landscape_lover #igshotz @igshots #worldplaces #travelandlife #TheBest_Capture #landscape_captures #pixel_ig #keepitwild #leaveitbetter #zion #utah #earthfocus #naturephotography #master_shots #epic_captures #beautyofnature #roamtheplanet #earthpix #getlost @fujifilm_profilm

My next video from my Winter trip to Zion goes live this Saturday. It was a very interesting day, and I spent a lot of time exploring Zion’s icy washes. I look forward to sharing the video, and the photo I managed to capture that day. #tagitplanetearth #believeinfilm #largeformat #8x10
