Why I named this site LightWaves Images

December 01, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

LightWaves Images....first of all, it is a cool name (if I do say so myself) - brings out visions of light moving through the atmosphere, forming waves of colors.  It sounds sort of scientific, which photography is, in a sense. All of the f-stops and shutter speed stuff, technical things about the camera and how it sees light.  Photography is also very artistic, the process of "seeing" a picture before it is taken, imagining how the light will interact with the camera.  Then there is the process of perfecting the whole captured image in the darkroom - these days that's computer software such as Lightroom, Photoshop, Photomatix, and other similar photo processing programs.  These can, if used correctly, make a good image into an even better one (but not a bad image into anything other than maybe a better-looking bad image).

Second, I became somewhat fascinated with Utah, Arizona, and other areas of the western USA during a mountain biking trip to southern Utah, where a couple of us made a side trip hike to "The Wave", a most amazing location.  I wanted to incorporate this place into my website name too.  Return trips since then have provided me with many more images of some of the many fantastic locations out there and in other locations.
