Wow! Half-a-Million Pinterest Followers!

Thanks everyone for the follows over on Pinterest! Here is one of my favorites Inspirational Boards that you may enjoy… Who are some of your favorite people to follow? When you look at my boards, you can see who I follow and re-pin the most… seems to be a lot of people from France that I follow I think!

Old-Timey Photographers

I always think about those old-timey guys and how they used to have to carry around those giant cameras and go through all the trouble. I wonder if anyone will ever think of me like this… lugging around my big Nikon and a giant computer to process the photos… yes, I suppose they will. Or, hopefully my future self will think that about my past self.

Daily Photo – Icy Tones in Yosemite

We had a great time at the event at Yosemite. I don’t do many of those, you know – those extended trips with big groups of people – but it was a lot of fun!

I think I was out in this area with Karen Hutton, Thomas Hawk, and Robert Scoble. It was a wonderful scene of lines and strange colors…

    Sooo pretty – I am sorry you didn’t get to see more snow last year – but this is beautiful!

  • Casper van Zyl

    Like this very much now that i can see again,had my glasses repaired.Love the colours,makes you want to go walk a bouts through the bush and beyond to see more. I feel this could even make a fine black and white shot.

  • GeorgeGreen

    The colors are unreal – beautiful. Almost looks like those old black and white prints that someone has hand colored.

  • Awesome picture! Looks more like painting that a photograph

  • It’s funny I love HDR and I love how you process photos but I wouldn’t like this type of processing at all. It goes too far away from being a photo to me. It takes away from the majesty of the scene (which I’ve seen in other HDR’s you’ve done of this area). Congrats on the PInterest followers. Do you ever get paranoid about all these people following you? It must be weird at times. Surely it must get overwhelming at times trying to keep all those followers interested. I look forward to you getting back to New Zealand because I love those scences. Snow on mountains really works with HDR.

  • Trey Ratcliff

    Thanks! 🙂

  • Now that is really cool what you did here with this photo in Yosemite – I absolutely LOVE what you did with this. Totally my kind of photo. Thank you.

  • Andrea Boyle

    Beautiful shot and I love the illustration-look to it. Is that a view of Tenaya Canyon from Mirror Lake?

  • paulbellinger

    Awesome photo! I can’t wait for the 30 days 30 nights how to!

  • Beautiful, Trey!!!!

  • Pratyush Pattanaik

    Wondrous shot Trey! I don’t understand some comments here though. Why should a photo be a certain way? Why should it be always close to “reality”? What is reality? What is wrong in a photo sometimes coming not from the way a camera sensor captures it but from the way the photographer feels and imagines it in his mind.

  • Great photo, I really like it. The lack of color saturation is a nice change, not that I don’t like your color filled HDR photos, but this one really stands out as different.
