Seeing spectacular scenery with friends in Alaska is a blast! Add a ride in a float plane, a ride on an air boat, and coastal brown bears looking for fish at low tide with a majestic glacier mountain background — what could be better, right!? This was an experience I will never forget! Thank you Rich, Karen, Eric, and our skilled guides for getting us close to the bears and wildlife life to photograph them in the wilderness at Cook Inlet, Kenai Peninsula, Alaska. Here are some of my favorite photos from August 25, 2019. Photos by Jolly Sienda Photography. Tour by Alaska Bear Adventures.
Get up sleepy heads! Don’t miss the best light of the day! Early morning and late in the afternoon or early evening is often referred to as the ‘Golden Hours’, so true for photographers at any level. Today, I had a blast playing around with my camera with my photographer friend Marlene. We photographed landscapes in the morning and Bald Eagles in the afternoon at low tide! Here’s a photo tip: If you’re photographing moving objects set the Shutter Priority on your camera to at least 2500. This will help you freeze the action and your subject will be super clear and crisp.

Blessed with beautiful weather we recently explored scenic vista’s in Anacortes and sailed through the San Juan Island archipelago to spend a couple of days exploring Orcas Island. It was the perfect getaway! We enjoyed hiking in Moran State Park and captured beautiful views from Mount Constitution. One of my favorite spots for photography is at Deer Harbor.

Cool, pastel, winter skies…wind, clouds, and sun-breaks…golden cattails and marshland…and snow on the barren farmlands, are the perfect beacon for birds of prey! The farms in the Skagit Valley are dormant and waiting for spring; yet its a feast for birders and birds alike that survive off of the grubs, field mice, and fish in the fields and sloughs. Below are photos taken from our February 16-17 trip to Mount Vernon Skagit Valley and Whidbey Island.
When winter arrives at the Skagit Valley, Bald and Golden Eagles, Canadian Snow Geese, Hawks, and other bird of prey feast on fish, worms, mice, and more at the barren fields that lay in waiting for spring planting. For many nature photographers seeing so many varieties of birds gather in one area is special.
Seeing two Bald Eagles together is fantastic!
Eagles are so popular in this region that there is a festival in their honor! https://concrete-wa.com/skagit-eagle-festival

Have you ever dreamed of seeing the ‘End of the World’? Or, checking off those ‘1001 Things to See and Do Before You Die’? Our recent trip to South America and Patagonia provided us some of the world’s most dramatic scenery; unveiling places few ever see. The weather too, in this area, can change so quickly; from calm to ferocious gale force winds preventing ships from traveling around the Cape Horn or arriving safely in Port Stanley, Falkland Islands. Boy, did we luck out! In fact, the captain of our cruise ship said, “This is the calmest it has ever been, on my watch, sailing around the Cape Horn” The following images were taken on our journey. Happy Holidays!
King Penguins and Gentoo Penguins are at home at Bluff Cove, a family farm, owned by Hattie and Kevin Kilmartin, on the Falkland Islands. We really enjoyed our time photographing the penguins, birds, and the farms sheep; while taking in the raw, natural, beauty of the Falkland Island landscape, and sampling delicious home baked cookies and scones at the farm. www.falklandpenguins.com
I enjoy all of the seasons of the year. I especially love Autumn and its rich, warm, colors; red, yellow, orange, purple, and green! When I get free time in the early morning or late afternoon to go outside into nature I’m feeling a bit of zen. Our earth gives us gifts of paradise each day to enjoy. When I get to play with my cameras and lens I’m really in the zone.
I’ve traveled throughout the United States in search of beautiful colorful landscapes to photograph. There are many. But, in fact, some of the best and most beautiful natural landscapes showcasing Autumn color is where I live - close to my backyard.
And, for outdoor wedding photography — photographing a bride and groom under a blazing oak, alder, or maple tree is the best! All of my couples love this!!!
I also love to let myself go and be totally creative! How about this abstract photography landscape in the water. It really looks like a watercolor painting!

The sunrise, cool crisp air, crystal clear water, warm autumn color, fog layers, Olympic Mountains, seagulls, a fisherman taking his boat out to sea, tranquil and calm — this is what I feel and see as I look, linger, and take in the natural beauty of the Hood Canal, at Seabeck. A picture perfect slice of Pacific Northwest paradise.

Serenity, color, light, shadows, reflections…and more.
Whether you're a professional photographer or learning about photography a great way to learn and practice your skills is to go out into your yard and photograph the flowers in your garden. I love to experiment with wide angle and macro lens for this.
This is a great way to understand color, texture, depth of field, design, and to train your photography eyes. Don't get discouraged. Let the natural world pull you in and keep practicing with you camera. Over time, I know you will be thrilled with your results! When you are -- make up some prints of your flowers and display them on your wall as a fine art photography gallery! So pretty!!
See something you love! Please let me know! I'd love to hear from you. Fine art photography by Jolly Sienda Photography is available on this website or by contacting me.
Winter weather can surprise and delight me all at the same time...when it offers soft, tranquil, pastel-like colors.
The serene colors of nature's natural beauty puts me in a dreamy state of mind.
