It seems we made it back to Walt Disney World after a year and a half absence just in the nick of time as all parks are now closed as of today. On the bright side of being stuck inside for the foreseeable future I have a ton of photos to work on and process. I’m a sucker for a nice sunset so let’s start off with this one at Splash Mountain.
I know I haven’t posted much lately but I am clearing out a few things I’ve been sitting on to make way for something new. Standby…
Here’s another shot from this year’s Autumn trip to the Smoky Mountains. Believe it or not this was taken on a pull off just on the side of Highway 441. It’s still my favorite stretch of road I’ve driven in the states and never disappoints. It was very rainy and foggy all morning which is perfect for photographing these woodsy scenes.
I go to the Smokies in autumn to experience the amazing colors and falling leaves, but sometimes a photo just begs to be black and white. This morning was very foggy, very rainy, and ultra moody. The black and white helps convey the feeling of this morning very well.
Just returned from our yearly autumn trip to the Smoky Mountains. The overall theme for this trip was rain and fog, which made for some really excellent moody photos. Before the rain and fog however, on Monday night, our first night in the park, I knew would be my only night to try out my new star tracker so I took it up to Clingman’s Dome. I was a bit too tired to hike to the top so this is from the parking lot. I could spout a ton of technical mumbo jumbo that went into creating this image but I’ll just say it’s my favorite Milky Way shot I’ve done in the Smokies yet!
Looping back to some Disneyland shots as I still have a bunch I never processed or shared. In particularly I wanted to do some of the dark ride shots. I take so many dark ride shots and then share probably .1% of them, which seems ridiculous. I did very minimal processing to this one. A quick color balance, a warming filter and some denoising to the shadow areas. Enjoy.
This is an alternate take on a shot I did last year that I really liked. This time around I have a different color scheme on the castle along with some dreamlights. The sky is clear of fireworks and I’ve edited it to feel a bit moodier.

This photo harkens back to a better time. A time before Walt Disney World’s light designer got an amazing deal on a warehouse full of blue lights and then proceeded to bathe the entire Kingdom in its awful blueness. It would be nice to see a return to competent nighttime light design. Thanks for listening and enjoy.
