I’ve been up to the Mount Baker area quite a few times this winter and haven’t lucked out once photography wise. I think Baker’s best season is during winter so it’s well worth the drive up even if I don’t come back with a photo, but I can’t deny that it isn’t a little demotivating after so many attempts. I’m a firm believer that photography is largely a numbers game and the more time you spend out, the more likely you are to finally get some good light. So, with that logic I should be due for some nice light any day now ;) Anyways, this shot here is from a few years ago after heavy snowfall when I lucked out and got a beautiful light show. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2020 workshops are open for booking!

Throwback to that one time in Arizona when the light went OFF! The scene you see here is Three Sisters peak in the Superstition Mountains. The area is filled with cacti including my favorite: teddy bear cholla (the ones closest in the foreground). While I love the name, whatever you do, don’t snuggle up next to one like a teddy bear! I scouted out this area for a couple hours before sunset and eventually found this comp which I hadn’t seen shot before. I really enjoyed this spot and love all the different types of cacti in the scene. There are the deadly teddy bear cholla, the common saguaro (big tall ones) and what I believe are large barrel cactus. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2020 workshops are now open for booking!

One of my oldest photos taken around four years ago of a seastack on Rialto beach which has since collapsed. The entire trip had been cloudy and raining, but for a brief moment a gorgeous display of color found its way through! I’d been shooting this seastack from the other side and didn’t even notice this light was happening until my wife pointed it out to me. She had just been sitting there watching this gorgeous light show and after she had her fill, decided okay....I guess I can finally let Ross know what’s going on!!! I managed to quickly setup and grab a few shots. You don’t see many sunrise shots from our PNW coast, but I’m glad I was there for this one. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2020 workshops are now open for booking!

Join me at Mt Rainier this August to photograph massive mountain peaks, fields of wildflowers, alpine streams/waterfalls, and to experience some of the darkest skies the PNW has to offer. It will be 3 days and 2 nights of shooting in a photographers paradise! While the workshop will have a heavy focus on shooting the night sky and is scheduled around the best time to shoot the Milky Way alignments, we will also be shooting sunrises and sunsets at some of the parks best locations. I have spent countless hours exploring and enjoying this park and can't wait to share it's beauty with you! For more information, visit link in bio or www.rosssvhphoto.com

With all this rain the PNW is getting I can’t help but think back to my recent trip to the Southwest when I went two weeks with only one day of clouds. During the trip I was wishing for more clouds, but right now I would be okay with some warm, sunny, bluebird days! Anyways, nothing too crazy about this shot! Some of those incredible lines you know you’ll find at White Pocket combined with a sky full of a very rare sighting on that trip...clouds ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2020 workshops are now open for booking!

One of the smaller, but more beautiful waterfalls in the Columbia River Gorge. Do you prefer the vertical or horizontal comp on this one? Waterfalls have always been one of my favorite subjects to shoot. I absolutely love moving water and I really enjoy how with the right light you can spend hours shooting. Over the last two years it feels like haven’t shot many waterfalls. In 2017 I went pretty crazy and drove all over the PNW shooting waterfalls. I am not sure why, but I have a feeling I will be visiting a lot of waterfalls this Spring and I can’t wait! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2020 workshops are now open for booking!

The warm, golden glowing walls high up in the narrows combined with the cool, dark blue flowing river is one of the more beautiful natural color combinations you’ll find in landscape photography. While looking for comps and good light, I spent a lot of time thinking about how insane this canyon is! It’s incredible how some water and a whole lot of time can completely change the look of a landscape. The Virgin River has been carving Zion Canyon for millions of years, a process that continues to this day. The main contributor is flash flooding, when snowmelt or rain from a sudden downpour funnels through the canyon. The result after millions of years is something you have to experience for yourself. Walls over 2,000ft high and as narrow as 10-20ft wide in some places. Hopefully you don’t get claustrophobic easily! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2020 workshops are now open for booking!

On my way home from the Canadian Rockies I decided to make one last stop at Morants Curve after shooting Castle Mountain. Most of the clouds quickly dissipated at Castle Mountain well before actual sunrise, so I figured I would try my luck here. It turned out to be a great decision as there were some fantastic clouds floating right around these peaks and some of the coolest ice/slush formations I’ve seen for a foreground. It took a bit longer than I would have liked to slog my way to this spot as every step I would sink into 3-4 feet of slush (thank you waders!!), but luckily the light stays gorgeous and golden for an unbelievably long time during winter in the Rockies. One final note about this area, I did hear from several photographers after arriving back home that this area down by the river is apparently off limits and you can get a ticket for crossing the train tracks. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2020 workshops are now open for booking!
