Biweekly Wow: Norway’s Pristine Beauty

There’s something truly stunning about places above the 60th parallel.  It’s much cooler there (usually), and frozen landscapes make for some of my favorite photography.  How could you not love the perfect white beautifully contrasting the deep blues and bright oranges?  Besides, I’m something of a sucker for snow; it transforms a scene into a magical wonderland.

Happy Monday, yet again!  Another week has come and gone; it absolutely blows me away how quickly the weeks melt by when we’re so busy.

With all the beautiful (and hot) weather, we’ve been visiting the beach, backpacking, camping, con-ing, and spending time with family.  Every weekend for the next month or so is booked, and many weekday evenings to boot!  But I’m happy with all the excitement, as it gives me lots to photograph.

TWOI: 7/3/18

Can you believe it??  I actually forgot to post this yesterday!  I feel so silly; I hope you’ll forgive me.

I also did not post as much to Instagram this week as I had originally intended.  As you know, I’m moving away from Instagram and more toward 500px – though I didn’t post much there this week, either.  Summertime gets really busy!

Considering this shift in platform, I’m thinking about changing the name of these weekly recaps.  Do you think I should call them “This Week on 500px” (TWO5)?  Or should I come up with something more creative? (more…)

We’ve already seen another week go by… and almost another month!  It’s crazy to think the summer is already halfway through when it feels like it’s only just begun (and sorry, but I don’t buy into the idea that the solstice marks the beginning of summer – much like I don’t believe midnight is the start of nighttime).

This week was busy as I’ve been working on some exciting new projects – be sure to subscribe to my newsletter or become a Patron to hear all of these announcements first-hand!  As such, I didn’t post as much as I initially intended to Instagram.  I actually ended up posting more to 500px this week.

Here’s the lineup!

It was so hard to sort these this week, as I love them all.  But something had to come first!  I took this one while coming down from Zion’s famed Angel’s Landing.  It was a memorable hike, and this evening tableau only heightened the exhausted excitement we all felt.  What a beautiful park.  You can read all about that day here.

Next, I took this with my sister during one of my last trips to Colorado Springs.  I had family out there (who recently moved closer to us – yay!), and we made the annual pilgrimage for the holidays.  My sister – a wonderful portrait photographer – asked for some pointers on landscape photography.  So I took her out to this lovely spot on a ridge overlooking the famous Kissing Camels rock formation in Garden of the Gods at the crack of dawn.  This was my takeaway from that day.

Finally, my favorite of the Instagram posts this week should be no surprise.  I love love love all of the beautiful photos I took home from Bryce National Park.  This was from our last sunrise in the park, just before we hit the trail one last time.  You can see more pictures and read all about that day here.

I posted more to 500px this week, and I’m quite pleased with that gallery.  Here is this week’s collection:

Another week, another set of photos.  Do you like these weekly recaps?

As you know, I’m moving more toward 500px over Instagram, but I’m still posting several times a week to both.  I have some ideas for new content; I’m going to try to start rolling some of that out soon.  Stay tuned!

This first image was from Bryce National Park.  I played around a bit with the coloring on this one.  It isn’t quite black and white with the red tones, and I like the feel the more sepia-like treatment lends.
