Sedona Fall Color – Cave Springs Wash

01-mjensen-cave-springs-wash-pano-0035Cave Springs Wash is near the Cave Springs Campground just a few miles north of the West Fork Trail. It is my favorite place to photograph Maple Trees of all colors! Following are my favorite images from this trip: Read more

Zabriskie Piont

This image was taken from Zabrisk[e Point in Death Valley. I zoomed in on the distant river bed (it looks like a river bed anyway) and panned at a slow shutterspeed. I printed it on canvas and it really looks like a painting! I’m spending more and more time on Google Plus so check it out for more of my photos:

Desert Drive-by Shooting

Call me crazy but I love sticking my camera out my SUV window and shooting while driving. Jack Davis (artist and digital guru) was the first one I saw do this back about 2003 and I was instantly intrigued. I don’t always get something worthwhile but occasionally I get something I love. This was one of those times. I added to the left side of the image and I printed this on a large canvas and it looks great! I love the painterly look.

Holiday Light Displays

You’re probably tired of seeing them but I never tire of moving my camera while shooting holiday lights. Swing your camera, doe-see-doe 🙂

Anna’s Hummingbird

I assisted on a Bird Walk for the MSC yesterday and when I assist, I typically only carry a compact camera since an SLR with a long lens would be too distracting. Only two people showed up, though, so had I known, I would have brought my “big” camera. But we had a great time and I ended up with an in focus shot of an Anna’s Hummingbird so I was happy 🙂

Big Bugs

Last night we went to Luminaria at the Desert Botanical Gardens. A bonus photo op for me this year was David Rogers’ BIG BUGS sculptures! They are amazing and great fun to photograph at night. Hand held, of course 🙂

Red Rock Fantasy

Every year, Sedona’s Los Abrigados hotel puts on a spectacular light display called Red Rock Fantasy to benefit local charities. Last night, we experienced the best display ever! As you can see, I prefer shaking and/or zooming my camera at the lights. The varying movement of the lights is controlled by the direction I move my camera. No tripod. ISO ranged from 200 to 800 with shutterspeeds from 1/8th sec to 3 seconds. To see more images, check my Holiday Album on Google Plus. Fun 🙂

Little America Lights Festival

Every year at this time, Flagtaff’s Little America Inn hangs a million lights in their trees. Here’s one of my interpretations. If you enjoy light displays, it’s worth a drive up! The display continues through Jan 1.
