    [–] A quiet morning in the Tetons, WY [OC][1620x1080] alexspaethphoto 1 points ago in EarthPorn

    This was taken on my birthday two summers ago from Surprise Lake. While the switchbacks up the nearly 3000' felt like a bit of a slog, finally jumping into the lake once we got to the top was well worth the effort.

    [–] Havasu Falls in Autumn, AZ [OC][1620x1080] alexspaethphoto 2 points ago in EarthPorn

    That’s awesome! I think it’s the perfect time to go. Not too hot, not too cold, and the fall colors last forever down there.

    Havasu was our last stop on our annual Thanksgiving trip through the Southwest this past year. While many of the sites along the way were spectacular, the beautiful blue-green waterfalls of this sacred place were truly something special.

    [–] I spent 5 days on the Lost Coast of California using a timelapse motion control system. This is the edit I came up with. alexspaethphoto 1 points ago in SonyAlpha

    Great footage and lapses! I’ve always wanted to explore that part of the state. Did you actually use an anamorphic lens, or did you add the black bars in post?

    CO is pretty amazing! WA is also pretty great, but I might be a little biased since I live there.

    Thanks! It was super windy when we went as well. In fact, we had to partially bury our tent to keep it from blowing away! Although the wind did stop around midnight strangely enough.

    I didn't try too hard to protect it, but I tried to shield it with my body during particularly strong gusts. I got sand around the dials and under the articulating screen, but that's nothing a little rocker blower can't handle. I certainly didn't change lenses out there though.

    Thanks! It's a really fascinating contrast. Also interesting that the erosion from those mountains created the dunes is also quite cool.

    If you haven't been to Great Sand Dunes National Park, I thoroughly recommend it! It's like a giant sandbox and full of interesting perspectives. This was taken in March 2016 on my first trip with a "real" camera. I didn't really know what I was doing yet (as you might be able to tell from my camera settings), but the surrounding landscape was amazing and it still goes down as one of my favorite trips and solidified my love for landscape photography and backcountry camping.

    [–] Seeing Half Dome through the trees, Yosemite, CA [OC][1920x1280] alexspaethphoto 1 points ago in EarthPorn

    This was taken on New Year's Day, so I don't think there were many people climbing that day. Although it was super nice outside!

    I guess technically it is, since I captured it on an electronic camera, edited it on a computer, and you're looking at it on a computer/phone. Or maybe this is all a simulation and nothing is real!

    Great! And I used Lightroom. I typically only use PS if I need to remove something tricky from a photo or do something more complex.
