I am also a music producer in my other life and one evening I decided to take this hyper detailed shot of my made in USA Fender Stratocaster. I have this very piece adorning the wall of my studio and it always reminds me that I love to photographs objects that I love.

I find that clouds and inclement weather is definitely a photographer's friend as they add drama and interest.
luckily I had my camera rig set up in time for an approaching rain storm which produced a fantastic rainbow, plus the added benefit was that the storm was way off in the distance and I remained dry!

Althought the light and the point of view are quite common, I like the sense of scale here . The mightiness of the mountains , of rock and ice.
We can see some people on the moraine ( bottom right ) to imagine the scale. They are hiking to "Laguna de los tres".

This is Poincenot and Fitz Roy Mountain.

January 6, 2019

January 4th, 2019 brought a huge snowfall to Banff National Park. The 80+ cm (31.5 inches) of fresh snow made travel impossible on the mountain roads and in fact, the famous Icefields Parkway (Hwy 93) was closed for several days. At the first notice of the reopening of the Icefields Parkway, I headed for Banff National Park, knowing full well that the huge snowfall would present some wonderful photo opportunities.

My first stop was to photograph Castle Mountain about half-way between the townsites of Banff and Lake Louise. Check out the photo “Castle Mountain Sunrise” to see the result.

After photographing Castle Mountain, I headed up the just re-opened Icefields Parkway. The amount of new snow was incredible. In some places, the snow plows had only been able to cut a single lane through the huge drifts. After a long drive and frequent stops to photograph some other snow-covered areas along the way, I arrived at Mistaya Canyon, a beautiful and accessible canyon that is known for its distinctive curvy canyon walls. When I arrival, I was super excited to see that I would be the first visitor to the canyon since the huge snowfall/road closure, as the trailhead was untouched and under a meter (3 feet) of fresh snow.

With my camera gear and my special VAST equipment on my back, I donned my snowshoes and made my way downhill the bridge that crosses the Mistaya River and the canyon below. Once there, I setup my VAST equipment on the bridge and as it started to snow again, I worked quickly to capture over 600 images in just under 40 minutes. All those images would be necessary to assemble this high-resolution image with incredible depth of focus. Once the photo taking was over, I sat and enjoyed the view in complete solitude for quite some time. It was quiet and peaceful. There is just something I love about white fresh untouched snow in the mountains.

Scott is an award-winning photographer, world-renowned teacher of specialty imaging techniques, and computer scientist. His images have appeared in magazines and books around the world and his fine art prints adorn the walls of homes and businesses alike. In 2015, Scott received the prestigious international award of “Panoramic Photographer of the Year” by Kolor for his pioneering work in the field of high-resolution image-making.

Living next to the Canadian Rocky Mountains and Banff National Park, Scott spent many years focusing his photography purely on their natural beauty.

216 megapixels! A very high resolution photo of the beach and ocean under a pier; VAST photo created by Phil Crawshay in Naples Pier, Florida, USA

Infinity

216 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Naples Pier, Florida, USA
March 28, 2016

The hardest part about these large format shots is that in areas like these, people will be constantly getting in shot. To combat this I will take the shot manually, pausing between each location to wait for that person to move. If they don't move, then I will take the shot again and superimpose that shot with the previous one so I can effectively 'rub out' the obstruction. Because of all of this, this capture took a long time to do but it was certainly worth it as the sky provided some fantastic colors and shapes.

506 megapixels! A very high resolution fine art photograph of an old iconic bus that is emblamatic of Texas culture; VAST photo created by Phil Crawshay in Texas

Broken Bus

506 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
October 1, 2011

For years, this bus used to be a common photographic spot for people and was quite the local treasure in Austin, Texas. Parked outside the famous Broken Spoke and with an old pumping jack in the background, the scene was set for a classic piece of Americana, that was until the owner of this bus took it away in the middle of the night. To this day, nobody really knows why he took it but I am told that it resides somewhere in San Antonio.

September 7, 2016

Travelling back from Utah after an exhausting 2 week photo trip I decided to travel back to Texas via Colorado to check out this place after some advice from a good friend.
I was certainly glad I did as this was a truly magical place that had formed from years of wind blowing dust off the distant mountains. I was also rewarded by some fantastic cloud formations which always adds real drama to a capture.

This vantage of McWay Falls in Big Sur places the viewer in very close proximity to the beautiful cove and waterfall in a way that most images of this iconic location do not. The exquisite aqua-colored water that crests in a beautiful foam lined wave upon the shore is intensified by the abundant late-morning sunlight.
