Mammoth Cave Tunnel
One of my favorite bending tunnels in Mammoth Cave, Kentucky, during the ‘domes and dripstones’ tour. As the worlds longest known cave system (over 400 miles explored), the cave as well as the trails above have an abundance of interesting features for everyone to enjoy.
Great Sand Dunes National Park
Great Sand Dunes National Park, April 2017
An epic sunset at Hanging Rock, NC, from mid April 2016. For a couple of minutes the orange/pink colors became so bright that the cliffs and hills changed to warmer colors. I preplanned this vertical shot an hour before the peak colors, and definitely got better light than expected. Six image hand-stitched vertorama + three image focus stack.

Sunset over Big Stone Gap in Virginia, captured 4/15/17. This is a two image stack (one for the car trails).
Looking Glass Falls
Looking Glass Falls at sunset. One of my favorite moments from 2016 while exploring NC. Just before sunset, the thick clouds parted and direct sun hit the mist, making the rainbow visible. After a few minutes it was gone, and the sun fell below the horizon. Part of the Pisgah National forest.
