Here are a couple of early morning shots I took back in March of this year. The first is ALIENS ROCK and the second is HOWLING AT THE MOON. Enjoy, and C & C always appreciated and respected.

5D MKII, 24-70L, Gitzo, RRS and the list goes on.

Have plenty of Canons, enough ammo, enough to blow 'em to "L". Now, I just have to learn to aim.

I can't believe no comments or C & C.

Sometimes it takes a while to notice a post I think - I like both shots JT is a fun place to shoot you got a real nice "Alien" look- those rocks in that area are really interesting and add a lot to the interest in shooting in this park

I like the composition of the first one. Almost abstract. I think I would like it more if the sky "popped" as much as the foreground. The second one is very nice too. I like the softer natural light.

Thank you both for stopping by and taking a gander at these two and leaving some positive thoughts.

Am I right? The second one looks like something is crawling. It is possible to see the fingers of the hands and the part that represents a "head" or hat of some sort?

Great rock formations. I like the last shot the best.

I really wouldn't change much about either of them, great light and exposures. perhaps I would have shot the first one a touch wider so the rock ran into the top left hand corner of the frame rather than cutting of a little short.

I like the second one the most but, I would suggest trying to increase the exposure a bit in the foreground.

I like the photos. I think a polarizer would have helped the first shot and some light painting on the rocks could help the second. Nice shots overall. JTree is an amazing place for photographers.

Good shots. I have to get back again. It's been a while and I only live an hour away.

That sounds like me too. One thing I need is a good thunderstorm in JP. I've been there under some cloudy skies, unexpected snow with gray skies, but never a good storm.
