Sunrise, Ormiston Gorge, Australia.

I scouted this area the night before and got up before sunrise to make the hike and a dangerous off-trail climb (with knowledge that I could easily put my hands on a deadly snake or any other deadly Aussie outback creature) up the cliffs to get this shot. This is a single exposure with a custom made nd grad filter.

Sunset, spinifex, and bush fire, Uluru-Kata Tjuta national park, Australia. Much of the beauty of this sunset is the result of necessary fires started by the native caretakers of this land, just as it has been done for tens of thousands of years.

Initiation grounds, Rainbow Valley Magic


Initiation grounds, Rainbow Valley Magic
Originally uploaded by Douglas Remington - Ethereal Light™ Photography

I scouted this area in Australia's Red Center the night before. This was photographed at first light and I was lucky enough to get the moon in the saddle. This is a mens initiation area for the Arrente aboriginal people and it was an honor to be there. I was sure to ask for permission to the ancients spirits who are caretakers of this magical place. The light I found to be quite magical here. Always warm and unique.

I am still trying to find out what the name of this bush, or plant is. If anyone knows, please let me know.

Red Center, Rainbow Valley, Australia


Red Center, Rainbow Valley, Australia
Originally uploaded by Douglas Remington - Ethereal Light™ Photography

The last rays of light illuminate the clay-pan foreground in rainbow valley located in the red center of the Australian outback. Certainly one of the more interesting displays of light I have photographed. This image was made from the very first squeezing of my shutter while in Australia. This is sacred land to the Arrernte aboriginal people who have lived here for over 50,000 years. You can feel their spirit here and it is very important to offer respect, be careful of where you walk, and to ask for permission to be here. The red center's surrounding earth is very rich in iron and other minerals which creates the deep crimson colors that are most intense at sunrise and sunset. The stars are very bright, and the blue in the sky is more cyan because of the lack of atmospheric pollution. In the northern hemisphere the sky has more magenta to it because of the much greater load of pollutants. This area of Aussie gets more than 3,500 hours of sunshine a year. It felt like home to me.

Brandon Reynolds, my little Brother. Sept 8, 1973 - July 14, 2012 - May you rest in peace. Brandon was an amazingly animated soul who was unique, and funny. Like my he was interested in the mysteries in life. He has fought many battles and probably lived longer than he should had. I was there in the E.R. room many years ago when the surgeon had his hand inside his chest cavity massaging his heart back to life from multiple stab wounds. The surgeon told me he should not had survived that, but he did. He was a "former" Marine. Brandon has been practicing Shoaling Kung Fu for something like 10 years. He was training for a marathon when he found out he had a very aggressive form of cancer. He worked on a printing press and was breathing solvents, and I believe that is what triggered this. But it does not matter now. He fought the big fight, all the way to the end. He did not want to go. He is a newlywed. A little more than a week ago he was giving pep talks to Ellie who has cancer as well. Past several days he declined rapidly and was in hospice at home. We stayed with him, we comforted him. Mary, Mom, and myself told him it was O.K., and that is was time now. He was holding both my hand and his beautiful and amazing wife's hand, with family by his side when he took his final breath. It is a hell of a thing to watch someone you love die over a period of several days, and to take their final breath. It is also a privilege. I am physically and emotionally exhausted. Thank you to all who have given me and my family support through all of this.

Seeing

They say with photography, like many other things, that you must specialize. People seem to identify my photos with landscapes and are often surprised by my passion with the human element and beyond. I See. I photograph. I love documenting everything and I do not have any interest in censorship of any kind. The more we expose ourselves to all kinds of experiences the better it guides us on our evolution, spiritual or otherwise. I simply choose to specialize in seeing and being. ~dr

"St. Patrick" - not what you think.


"St. Patrick" - not what you think.
Originally uploaded by Douglas Remington - Ethereal Light™ Photography

St. Patrick was no Saint. Those who are truly Irish and who have a deep interest in real Irish culture, wisdom, and history, should reject St. Patrick's day. I have a bloody hell of a lot of Irish dna in me, and I shall not play along.

St. Patrick was no saint. He was a Roman agent sent to destroy Irish culture and wisdom and that is exactly what he did. At the time the Roman Empire desired further extension and the church was threatened by the Gaelic peoples knowledge of the cosmos and natural world. It would be difficult to unite an Empire that had a people within that proximity that held power in opposition to the Roman expansion. You don't need a church and an empire when you have real knowledge. This was a problem. And the conquerors knew that.

Ireland has never had snakes. When you hear the saying, St. Patrick was sent to Ireland to drive out the snakes, that means he was sent there to drive out their knowledge, and that is exactly what he did. Serpents have always been associated with knowledge in nearly all cultures - that is what that means.

I could go on and on, but you should really think for yourself and do your own research, but keep in mind. When you celebrate St. Patrick's day with your green plastic clover buttons, your cancer causing green "food" dyed "beer," you are "thinking" within the box, and not for yourself - and you are certainly not furthering your education on ancient Gaelic history or Irish culture. I ask you to take a stand against commercial idealism and enterprise, and stop abusing and perpetuating Irish stereotypes.

Fada beo an Éirinn fíor!

A Rainbow and the Oak Trees.
Originally uploaded by Douglas Remington - Ethereal Light™

This is the second time I have captured a rainbow over my favorite grove of oak trees in western Oregon. This is one of the magical places I spent daydreaming as a young man. I would often dream of having a picnic here with a pretty girl, laughing, being in love, soaking in the summer sun - with a warm breeze, and watching puffy white clouds float by while morphing into different essences.

Brandon and Mary get hitched
Originally uploaded by Douglas Remington - Ethereal Light™

My "little" Brother, Brandon just got hitched this weekend. He married his sweetheart, Mary - his girlfriend of many years. We found out over Christmas that Brandon has "incurable" stage 4 cancer. I am a stage 4 survivor of many years myself. I put him on an intense anti cancer diet, and he has since then done some of his own research and has learned allot. He is sticking to it and I can tell you that he is reversing it! Keep him in your thoughts and send good energy his way, he and his new bride could use it.

If anyone is interested in learning more about cancer and how to cure it, I recommend the book, Cancer, step outside of the box. search.barnesandnoble.com/Cancer/Ty-M-Bollinger/e/9780978...

Lise and I recently collaborated on a model shoot together and while waiting for our client to show up, Lise just picked up my camera, I looked at her, and she squeezed one of with it; dead-on-focus! I do not normally care for photos of myself, but I like this one well enough, and it is the only photograph of yours-truly taken by a real photographer. I processed it myself. So there you have it. Thanks, Lise!

Model shoot.

So I had this model shoot to do today. I was really thinking on how to photograph this girl based on her looks. I thought of a cool idea I wanted to pull off for some time now, but I needed a prop. My Dad had the prop so I called him this morning.

"Dad." "Hi Doug, what's up?" "Well I have this model shoot today." "Oh, so is she going to be naked?" "LOL, no Dad!" "Well if so I could hold the lights or reflectors or something for you;)" "Whatever Dad!" "Dad get serious, I need a prop." You mean from off of a boat?" "No Dad, I need to borrow your 357 Magnum!" "But I thought you were going to shoot her with your camera!"

I love my Dad! :)

Originally uploaded by Douglas Remington - Ethereal Light™

100 year old Centenarian, Don Agustin Jaramillo, poses for me.
The valley that the town of Vilcabamba occupies is known as, "the valley of eternal youth," or "The valley of longevity." This region of the world holds the world record for the most centenarians per capita. The Vilcabamba area has the most ideal climate in the world. It drops down to 60f every night and gets up to 81.5f every days. With clean air, food, and protection from the Andes mountains it is a most desirable habitat. Fruit hangs from the trees for everyone to pic. The people are beautiful. Not the easiest place to get to. Perhaps it should stay that way.
