This portfolio shows recent work from Mark Hammon’s photographic shoots or newly processed images from past shoots. This is often the first place that will show off his newest images.
Some of most recent work is from an October 2014 trip to Glacier National Park and work from his new studio.
2014 was a dry year and it left the mighty Yuba River running very low and slow, but it made from beautiful reflections. I choose to render this in black and white to emphasis the wonderful texture of the scene.
I hiked down to photograph one of the several flumes that follow the Truckee River through the canyon between Truckee and Verdi during deep winter. After many very cold days the water that continually leaks out of the flume freezes into incredible icicles and ice sculptures. For years I have driven by on my way up or down the hill and finally I decided to hike down and photograph them. I choose to use HDR techniques to get the full range of detail in these shots. In recent years the flumes have been rebuilt and do not leak as much, making this site less spectacular.
