“I do all my work to escape myself. I don’t believe in looking into yourself. If you do this you just discover a lot of shit. I think what we should do is throw ourselves out of ourselves. The truth is not deep in ourselves. The truth is outside.” 🌅 – Slavoj Žižek

Sometimes you do things just because they are hard.⠀
The Mrs. and I decided to go on a "short" hike this past weekend up to Willow Heights in Big Cottonwood Canyon. We'd heard great things about the colors, the reflections on the lake and just that it was an easy, family-friendly hike. In fact, it was about 1.5 miles round trip. Showed up to about an inch or so on the ground at the base of the trail, but quite patchy. Ended up in about a foot of snow at the end, through ice and mud, and carrying the kids the majority of the way.⠀
Do I regret doing it? Absolutely not. It was great for my kids to get a taste of hiking, and even better to see that they could do it. Would I do it again, knowing what I do now? Again, absolutely.
For those who follow my work, it should be obvious that I prefer telephoto shots of landscapes over wide angle. In fact, the vast majority of my favorite images have been taken with a telephoto lens. This past weekend, I knew that I would have the opportunity to expand my photographic skillset and brought my @sigmaphoto 10-20mm f/3.5 lens along for the trip. I've seen many stunning images on Instagram where there is a super interesting and detailed foreground element with one of our stunning PNW volcanoes or waterfalls occupying the background and I wanted to try to emulate that style (@rosssvhphoto and @steveschwindt are a couple of PNW photographers who are experts at this type of shot - go check out their work if you haven't already). Creating an image like this is much more complicated than taking a zoomed in telephoto shot. The lens itself needs to be incredibly close to the foreground subject (1-3 inches) and on a tripod. Once I had the camera set up exactly where I wanted it with the right exposure settings dialed in, I took three shots, one with the foreground rock in focus, the second with the tip of the reflection in focus, and the third with Rainier in focus. I then combined the shots in Photoshop in a process called "Focus Stacking" which layers together the sharpest portions of the three images. This was one of my first attempts at recreating this style and I'm pretty happy with the results although I wish I had found a better leading line for the foreground!
I offer prints for many of my photos. Please visit my website (link in bio) for more information.
Shot Info: Nikon D7500 with 10-20mm f/3.5 Sigma Lens, 10mm, f/5, ISO 100, 1/10s, 3 shots focus stacked.

Caught this scene over the weekend before the weather moved in.... I visualized a rather moody shot while I was shooting and thus the edit is a little dark but I like the way it turned out, let me know what you think!
