Eventually it happened.

Last year we explored Washington state and the Oregon Coast and when we did so we could not pass the opportunity to visit Thor's Well at Cape Perpetua, OR. The right tide and a good sunset will make this place just out of this world. Waves crashing and water going down the spur, travelers stopped for few minutes to snap few photos, photographers lined up to freeze the moment all will come together for few minutes.

If you find yourself along the Oregon Coast make sure you have this attraction point on your itinerary. In the mean time enjoy my take on Thor's Well as 'The gate to the dungeon'

Bridal Vail in the spotlight https://www.enchantedmomentsstudio.com/blog/2015/5/bridal-vail-in-the-spotlight The iconic tunnel view in Yosemite National Park was one of the first frames that I processed after we came back from the trip few years ago.

It has been shot by Ansel Adams and zillions of times after that but let's face it, would you go visit Yosemite and not stop by the tunnel view? That's right, it will be probably one of the first points to visit.

So did I and this is one of the frames I shot there. It was late afternoon, sun about to set and that time of the year it would sent the last rays over Bridal Vail fall. I called this frame, Bridal Vail in the spot light.

Enjoy it

Sunrise Mountain https://www.enchantedmomentsstudio.com/blog/2015/1/sunrise-mountain Big Island, Hawaii is just an amazing place to visit. From gorgeous sunrises to epic sunsets, from black sand beaches to active volcano, the island is just a paradise for any explorer.

South of the Island is a great place if you are looking to for that gorgeous sunrise. While we were scouting the island I came across to little place on the coast and I knew I need to come back early next morning. What I did not planned was to have company. But I knew that we both can share the beautiful moment.

Ka Lae https://www.enchantedmomentsstudio.com/blog/2015/1/ka-lae Ka Lae, also known as South Point, is the southernmost point of the Big Island of Hawaii and of the 50 United States. A confluence of ocean currents just offshore makes this spot one of Hawaii's most popular fishing spots. Both red snapper and ulua are plentiful here.

I was talking to some of the fisherman while we were out there back in 2013 and fishing off the rocky cliffs helps them to provide food for their families and to make a living.
The views are spectacular and the winds are shaping the vegetation and trees in a very unique look. Something that I will post soon.

Quantum https://www.enchantedmomentsstudio.com/blog/2015/1/quantum 2014 came to an end. It was a great year with ups and downs but one thing for sure is that it got my agenda shaped up for the future.

This is 'Quantum', my first image processed in 2015. I named it Quantum as it resembles a teleportation tunnel, the teleportation tunnel that I hope will take my art and vision into the future.

To a happy and healthy 2015! Cheers

Eastbound encounter https://www.enchantedmomentsstudio.com/blog/2014/12/eastbound-encounter Not sure where to start. I had in mind this shot for quite a while and I'm not going to get the credit for it. I stumbled across a similar frame on Flickr and since then my whole perspective of shooting Ben Franklin Bridge changed completely.

It was a challenging shot to say the least. From high cold winds to the police nervously patrolling on the bridge to check what I was doing on the bridge for so long to the fact that every time the train was crossing the bridge the whole structure was bouncing down few inches. Everything seemed to work against me except the dramatic sky and beautiful sunset light wrapping around Philadelphia skyline.

When I look back I think it worth every minute that I spent on the bridge shooting this frame...

The Waterworks https://www.enchantedmomentsstudio.com/blog/2014/11/the-waterworks When I stopped in downtown Philadelphia this past Sunday I was on my way back home from a macro boot camp with Mike Moats. The workshop was a success Mike being a down to earth guy that enjoys teaching and sharing his success with his students.

I planned few quick shots in downtown but what I didn't realized was that Philadelphia Marathon was not going to be over by the time I will be there. Therefore one by one my plans start going nowhere. I decided to go in Fairmount Park and shoot the Waterworks and city skyline at sunset.

It turned out that this should have been the only plan for that evening. Not only hat I got to shot the beautiful architecture of the Waterworks historical site but as a bonus on my way out from the park I got to get few frames of the Boathouse Row...just beautiful.

What was left out from the original plan will have to be part of another trip, for now will enjoy The Waterworks.

The Oyster Bar https://www.enchantedmomentsstudio.com/blog/2014/10/the-oyster-bar People coming...people going...she will wait patiently but is he going to come or not?

In a recent trip at Grand Central Station I knew that I have to get some frames of the famous Oyster Bar. Getting a clean shot it is always a challenge in GCS. As I was working the frame I realized that having in my frame the people that give life of this landmark is what I really want. I loved the dynamic of this shot.

I should go back and revisit some of the frames I shot at Grand Central Station and view them from a slightly different perspective.

Enjoy it!
