Travel


Pathways….
I shot this image (back when I was just a novice at digital photography) on one of my hikes in Garmisch Germany. As I was really clueless on proper exposure and graduated ND filters, I shot this bare through a lens and a Nikon D90 camera. I had to use some HDR processing (luckily I was at least smart enough to shoot in RAW), and it was the only way I could bring out the details of what I saw. I hope it is not too over processed for you all, just taking a walk back through some of my old files and found this, wanted to share, enjoy!

A Storm Rolls In…
During my visit to Garmisch, Germany, I was able to capture this image of a mountain located near the Zugstpitz. As storm clouds rolled in over the moutain peak, I tried to capture the clouds as they rolled down on my side of this amazing landscape. You can also see two seperate ski lifts dwarfed by the sheer size of this mountain, and the ski lift’s power and transfer station..a massive structure, is also dwarfed.

Location: Garmisch, Germany
Equipment used: Nikon D300, Nikkor 80-300 VR lens, and a circular polarizer filter.

Landscapes and Seascapes


An image of the valley looking and winding almost two mile to the Zugsptiz. All I knew for sure was the sun was already up and I had a long way to go to get up to the summit (and grab that piping hot gourmet coffee!), and time was wasting! grabbed this shot and hiked full steam ahead for the cogg train at the base of the mountain (hey, I like to hike, but when you can take a cogg train….c’mon guys!).

Location: Garmisch, Germany
Equipement used: Nikon D300, Nikkor 70-300 VR, and the sun.

Mountains Meet the Sky –
So there I was, hiking, stuck on a mountain top in Germany. Armed only with a Nikon camera and a telephoto lens, the horrors! The only saving grace I could find was a four star Cafe’ on the very top of this wonder, but more importantly, they served fresh piping hot gourmet coffee! OH yeah…bliss in the sky I assure you!

Equipment used: Nikon D300, Nikkor 70-300 VR lens, and cold weather gear!
What was I thinking? Top of the world (and very inexperienced as a photographer), and did NOT bring a wide angle lens! Lesson learned, the hard way. I don’t know if I will ever be able to return to this wonderland, but the experience will last for the rest of my life.
