I had the pleasure of escorting Marko around Niagara Falls on Friday while he took some time for himself to photograph some of the sites. It was a fun afternoon!:thumbup: Here are some pics of the master at work.

Nice shots, good to see other photographers going out of their way to get the photos they want. WTG Marko, good to see you put the effort in to get the photos.

Cool shots Rinkdaddy - Thanks.
Master is very generous tho. Although I've been shooting for a long time, landscape photography is relatively new for me and I'm practicing the art just like everyone else.


Yowza! That laying down one must be cold on the bare belly!

It's funny - I felt NO coldness whatsoever while I was shooting. Both time, and temperature were not felt UNTIL I stopped shooting. It really is an amazing form of meditation, and it's one sure way (for me) to stop the incessant and often useless brain chatter.


Wow Marko, your gear looks really cool!

Thx - It's new gear :). D700 plus a new 70-200. Getting used to full frame again. Dig the improved sharpness and other features from the 30D I was using but... I really could have used that extra focal length that the 1.6 crop factor gives you.....

Thanks again Rinkdaddy!

I love doing this to my fellow photographers when I'm out with people. Nicely done. One of these days I'll get to Niagra.

Good job Rinkdaddy, looks like you had a good time... I din't remember "lying on the snow with a bare belly" being mentioned as a good way to shoot in the latest podcast! good to see Marko goes the extra mile to get the shot..

Gosh I am the same way! It IS a form of meditation for me :clap: and the reason I;ve been out so much is because its time that I don't have to think about anything other than what's in front of me for a few hours.. and then a few hours more processing shots.
Photography has been just wonderful therapy and an important part of a healing process and rediscovery of myself that I've had to do over the last year. For that I am so grateful! :)

Great shots RD!

I have had very similar experiences while riding. I was in an very intense session wtih my coach and she said 'so we'll stop here now' and I looked at her and said 'why would we do that?'. she looked at me and said 'because it's raining!'. I looked around and it was POURING! never noticed. :clap:

I don't know if I do this while shooting because I am often alone so wouldn't notice. :headslap:

It's funny...I used to run a while back and it was the same type of thing. I would just get out and go...and sometimes I would just get in that same zone. I thought I only ran a couple of km's but when doing a bike ride with the speedometer it was 8-10km's I was running...never even noticed....and I never used an Ipod...always liked to hear the birds instead of music. :)

Very cool shots. I agree with what you guys are saying about getting in that zone. It's a good feeling when it happens.
