Mountain Spirits

Mountain Spirits Photo By Brian VanDenzen Nearly every October, I journey into the San Juan Mountains of southwest Colorado to bask in the warm days and crisp, cool nights of fall, and to find that quiet inner peace that a moment of high country autumn light and shimmering aspen gold can provide to the soul. While the San Juan Mountains offer some of the most famous fall vistas in all of photography, I now look more for lesser-known scenes than the iconic autumn locations that draw so many photographers to these mountains. On a cold, rainy Friday evening in mid-October, I drove up to Molas Pass near Silverton, Colorado, parked along a forest road, and slept in the back…

Leaves By Moonlight

Leaves By Moonlight Photo By Morris Swartz Yosemite National Park is one of the most photographed sites in the United States. The park has been heavily visited, and its scenes have been captured on billions of cell phones. The challenge to photographers is to find a time of year when one can avoid crowds.

Over My Head

Over My Head Photo By Amos Nachoum I began my photography career as a fashion and war photographer in my homeland of Israel. I’m now a wildlife photographer, explorer and motivational speaker. For 40 years, from the High Arctic to Antarctica, I’ve pursued my quest with a camera to dispel the myth of “dangerous wildlife” and to raise compassion toward these wild creatures. I execute my mission by inviting select people to join my expeditions, which aim to inspire harmonious interactions between man and big animals. On one such trip to Ellesmere Island, Canada, in the late summer, the ice was mostly gone, and polar bears were moving from island to island in search of food, including birds’ eggs…
