Sunrise Storm Cloud over Mono Lake.

Photo Of The Day is “Sunrise Storm Cloud Over Mono Lake” photograph by Jeff Sullivan.
Location: Mono Lake Tufa State Natural Reserve, California.
“It started raining as I walked to the shore of Mono Lake before dawn,” says Sullivan. “I hadn’t dressed for rain, so I almost turned around and headed back to my car. The rain shower didn’t last long, and it’s fortunate that I didn’t leave since the rain showers drifted out onto the lake and were lit up by the first rays of the sunrise!”
Exposure: 0.8 sec., f/16, ISO 50, 24mm. Three one-stop bracketed exposures were adjusted in Adobe Lightroom then combined in Photomatix 6 HDR software.

Menacing Clouds descend on Grand Canyon.

Although rare, full cloud inversions are something we know well here, covering the same phenomena over the last few years both here and here.
This particular timelapse image by filmmaker Harun Mehmedinovic captures how beautifully the descending clouds imitate waves when trapped within the Grand Canyon, undulating against the uppermost edges of the natural wonder’s deep valley.

Magic Of Winter In The Mountains.

Snow, frost, drifts and wind. The magic of winter is perceptible at the fingertips right here, in the Polish mountains.
My name is Karol Nienartowicz and I am a mountain photographer.
For many years I have been traversing the trails in search of perfect winter scenes.
I recommend a gallery of winter photographs, which were made in Poland: in the Sudetes and the Carpathians Mountains.

Aurora activity at Sorbyn
Wrapping up against the cold, and grabbing head torches and cameras, we spent a couple of hours on the frozen lake and managed to capture shots of the swirling columns of turquoise, purples, and yellow lights that danced across the sky.

Most evenings my friends and I meet up on Redhead Beach with our dogs and let them have fun and let off steam.
The walk along the sand helps soothe our brains after a day at work, and also allows the dogs to have a good stretch on this amazing beach.
