In Hillary’s words:
“Landscape photography is an expression of the unique relationship of the photographer with the land. My photography is an attempt to communicate the intimacy of that relationship, its moods and deep connections.”
Stay tuned to the Facebook page on Tuesday, April 9th at 10 AM Pacific, when I’ll announce one of these 5 finalists as the grand prize winner of onOne Software’s Perfect Photo Suite 7 Premium Edition, a mounted print of their photo, AND a feature here on HudsonHenry.com.
That’s when the unexpected happened. As the sun rimmed down on the watery horizon, I looked behind me and saw the rain clouds out to sea turning red. I spun my attention directly into the backlit sunset. The exposure was really complicated and the light was changing fast.
With each step forward the snow bridge curved left and became narrower until my headlamp revealed a sickening gap between my feet and the far side of the crevasse. I was standing at the tip of a shark’s fin shaped remnant of collapsed bridge suspended over an enormous crevasse.
Among my favorite landscape subjects in Death Valley are the dunes just outside Stovepipe Wells. If you hike out into the heart of these dunes and climb to one of their higher ridges, you will see that they stretch out like a sea of sand waves driven by the wind.
Everything in the scene is big: San Francisco, the surrounding hills, the bay, the ocean, the sky and the Golden Gate Bridge that connects them all together. To capture this feeling, I decided to create some really huge images.
