An extremely windy sunrise on our 3 day backpacking trip to Thousand Island Lake, California in the Ansel Adams Wilderness. Low, fast -moving clouds obscured the peak of Banner but still offered a beautiful display of light. Thank you for taking a look!
One of those scenarios where you set up your camera, preparing for light in a particular direction. Before you know it, everything lights up behind you and you have to change up your approach very quickly. It was a beautiful display of light and cloud structure. I did my best to capture it. Thanks for taking a look! Owens Valley, CA
From some of the incredible coastline on the "remote" Ka'ena coast of Oahu. Incredible to watch the ocean flow around and through this formation. The kiss of light on the hillsides in the background added just enough of detail in the mostly overcast skies.
Another composition from the remarkable location of Elgol in the south of Skye. We visited this area for an evening and morning shoot and were blessed with good weather (though the previous three days were spent wandering around in murky fog and rain!). The Black Cuillins are a fantastic backdrop to a rugged coastline that provides opportunity for endless different compositions. Despite the popularity of this location, there isn't really a 'the shot' of this spot and that's a testament to the coast itself.
Oh, and I think this might be last post as before baby arrives
A storm moving over the Sierra at North Lake during fall. Seconds after this photo was taken it started to snow on me. It continued to storm for the next two days and dropped about 8 inches of snow here in the beggining of October. Stay tuned for the sunrise photo two mornings later.
I encourage everyone to please view this image on my WEBSITE I use a dark neutral background that makes viewing art much more pleasing to the eye.

It's not hard to see why the Yosemite Valley has inspired so many artists. Legendary landscape photographer Ansel Adams traveled all over the United States capturing the majesty of the National Parks. Yosemite though, was always closest to his heart. The late Galen Rowell, also one of the all time great lanscape photographers called the area in and around Yosemite his home, both as a photographer and an adventurer. Tunnel view, one of the parks more iconic lookouts, is a photographer's dream. Looking straight down the glacially carved valley, many of the parks most famous icons are in view. In the distance is the unmistakable monolith, Half Dome. Dominating the foreground to the left, is the giant, El Capitan. To the right is Bridalveil Falls, a 617 foot waterfall that comes from one of Yosemite's many hanging valleys. Typically, Bridalveil will fall from top to bottom, but on this evening the wind was blowing, causing the falls to scatter into the rocks of the cliff. This was truly a light show to remember. 10 or so minutes after the sun had gone below the horizon I was ready to pack up my gear and head back. Sunset had been decent and now the sky was dull and flat. Then, high altitude clouds began to catch the sunset light. The clouds danced in the light for a few minutes, changing from different shades of blue, pink and purple before my eyes. The light on the clouds was so intense that they were casting their own secondary light on the valley below, creating the illusion of direct sunset light. The light faded as quickly as it appeared, leaving me just enough time to capture a few images of this unforgetable evening.
