Second step, Grand Staircase. Sunset Arizona.

Shortly after I made this image I drove in the most dramatic lightning storm ever. It was constantly pouring rain, I couldn't pull over to get a lightning shot, far too dangerous anyway. Eventually got to a hotel and was safe and sound! :)

Mead and New Zealand Earthquake

Most of you have heard about the devastating earthquake that hit Christchurch New Zealand. I have several friends whom live there including Leon and Gabrielle Havill, of the Havill's Mazer Meadery. I just got off the phone with Leon Havill in NZ and they and their Meadery are fine, no damage! I am so relived! Anyway, lots of folk hurting down there. Please consider a donation to the red cross:

Christ Church Cathedral, New Zealand, destroyed in earthquake


Christ Church Cathedral, New Zealand, destroyed in earthquake
Originally uploaded by Douglas Remington - Ethereal Light™

Some of you know New Zealand is my favorite place on earth, and the city of Christ Church is right up there. There are some good folks hurting down there, and Kiwis are the friendliest people I have even known. CC just got hit hard by an earth quake. Still trying to get a hold of some friends there. People are dead. I'm pretty sad right now. Anyway, Christ Church Cathedral is one of the prettiest manmade structures I have ever seen, and it has been destroyed. I guess I am fortunate to have photographed her before it happened.

Thoughts are prayers go out to my Cantiburian friends.

Mammatocumulus cloudgasm

Originally uploaded by Douglas Remington - Ethereal Light™

This is without a doubt in the top 10 best light shows I have ever photographed, if not in the top 5. We have a nice mixture of rare mammatocumulus clouds and the remnants of crepuscular rays. The scene I knew was so unique that I wanted an ultra-high resolution capture of it so I made 17 exposures and manually stitched them together. I worked fast and luckily the light hung in there as I worked the scene horizontally and vertically with a 70-200 mm lens at 70mm @f6.3. When stitching, I manually set my own control points, so it does take some labor to achieve however the results are that I can blow the image up as big as a house! :) Image made in Verboort Oregon.
