My Best Nature, Landscape and Cityscape images of 2017

I thought this was a good time to share some of my best  Not every image was captured in 2017 - some were newly found and edited in 2017.  The things that made these the best for me were the lighting and composition.  Some amazing places like Yosemite (ok, quite a few were from there!), Santa Cruz Natural Bridges State Park, Proxy Falls waterfall in Oregon, Amsterdam and Singapore.
I hope you enjoy these and feel free to share.

My Best Nature and Landscape Fine Art Photographs for 2017:

"Daybreak at Natural Bridges"  Natural Bridges State Park, Santa Cruz, California
Seabirds enjoy the reflections on the tides washing over the sand at daybreak.  My favorite image for 2017!   The full size image can be seen here.  http://www.jharrisonphoto.com/Landscapes/Yosemite-Bay-Area-2018-Calendar/n-2kcj7j/i-LfvRDLs

"Sentinel Rock in Winter in Yosemite National Park"
The last light of the day was hitting Sentinel Rock while I was hiking around the valley floor.  The snow on the peaks above dusted the trees and granite cliffs lit by the sun.  A beautiful cloud started to come up over the ridge.  Someday I'll have to figure out how to rock climb and get to the top of Sentinel Rock in Yosemite National Park.  The full size image can be seen here.  http://www.jharrisonphoto.com/Landscapes/Yosemite-Bay-Area-2018-Calendar/n-2kcj7j/i-gZBTMLL

"Autumn Splendor"
A radiant yet delicate umbrella of leaves clings to the branches for a few more weeks of Fall at the Portland Japanese Gardens.  The full size image can be seen here.  http://www.jharrisonphoto.com/Portfolio/Landscape-PhotographyPortfolio/i-XQC9LM3

"Horsetail Falls at Sunset in Yosemite National Park"
An updated capture of this natural beauty of Horsetail Falls in Yosemite National Park in Winter at Sunset.  This ephemeral falls is just a wonder when the right conditions occur.  My "Nature's FireFalls" image was my previous attempt at capturing this years ago alone in Yosemite National Park in Winter.  Now it has become a national phenomenon as thousands of spectators and photographers set out to capture this wonder.  I am so glad I can remember the days when I was alone in the woods shooting this!  This year was exciting though as everyone was there to view this little ephemeral waterfall coming over the edge of El Capitan as the sunlight hits the waterfall just perfectly.  The full size image can be seen here.  http://www.jharrisonphoto.com/Portfolio/Landscape-PhotographyPortfolio/i-QcjmFSC

"Along the Northern California Coastline and Bixby Bridge"
Full size image can be seen here:  http://www.jharrisonphoto.com/Portfolio/Landscape-PhotographyPortfolio/i-nDxhTQ9

"Illuminated Falls" shows the beauty of Proxy Falls waterfall in Oregon during the summer. Such a peaceful setting while listening to the soft, silky falls surrounded by lush green moss and trees. The water flowing down the moss staircase and under the tree is a visual delight. I could sit here for hours! This image will look fantastic on your wall as a canvas print or framed HD Face-mounted Acrylic image. Let me know if I can assist you with a print for your home or office.
This is captured with my Nikon D810, Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 lens at f/11 and 18mm. Gitzo GT3541 XLS Carbon Fiber Tripod and Archtech ballhead. This was captured on a shoot with Mark Metternich and processed with techniques also from Mark.

"Fern Springs Flowing" Yosemite National Park.
One of my favorite Yosemite waterfalls with the smooth texture of the water flowing over the moss covered rocks. Could sit here for hours!   The full size image can be seen here. http://www.jharrisonphoto.com/Landscapes/Yosemite-National-Park-A/i-gkLQqTN

"Eclipse with Love 2017"

My Best Cityscape Fine Art Photographs for 2017:

“Along the Canals in Amsterdam at Night”. Amsterdam is such an amazing place! The canals and waterways cutting through the entire city with bikes and walkers zooming around you! Watch out for the those bikes! This is one of my favorite intersections with the lights over the bridges and lights just coming on in the windows of the houses. I could sit here for hours! Anyone else been to Amsterdam or have a favorite spot!? The full size image can be seen here:  http://www.jharrisonphoto.com/Portfolio/Landscape-PhotographyPortfolio/i-NWBhZ9D

"Marina Bay Sands Light Show at Night" 
"Marina Bay Sands Light Show at Night" Awesome view from 1-Altitude of the Marina Bay Sands Wonder Full Light show and Singapore Flyer at night. Those light beams and lasers into the air and the colorful lights of the city below. A beautiful night walking around #singapore last week!
