This past New Year's Eve I found myself on the Monterey Peninsula taking care of some family business. Luckily I was able to pull away long enough to do a little shooting at Asilomar State Beach one evening.
As the sun was setting for the last time of 2011, I was privileged to shoot one of the best sunsets I've seen in my life over the rocky shore of Asilomar State Beach which is on the Monterey Peninsula in California.
Stansbury Island in the Great Salt Lake, I've been out of town for a week and thought it about time to post this image from the archives. Taken as the weather started to turn from summer to winter last year.
Don't forget to "like" my facebook page for trip updates, photo tips, and anything else I find interesting. I appreciate the support!
The stillness was beauty as I patiently waited for the skies to bloom into color on this calm spring evening. With some amazing clouds overhead I was not disappointed and low tide offered some great still pools of water to compliment the sky's quiet song.

There's nothing like shooting down at Montana de Oro, always a challenge and always a complete journey into something other worldly and "jurassic". The most strange and uncanny coastline there is, and a complete blast! This is, not TO FAR off the trail. Went down to a small cove and explored a region I hadn't been to before. As usual, I wasn't disappointed. The 3/4 moon was rising above the cliffs and I thought I would include it in this shot, made sure to get some water flowing back toward the beach to add a little bit of movement and character to what would have been a very "still" picture.

Ever so slightly the morning sunlight caresses the famous Castle Mountain. Thousands of feet below the Bow River rushes by. Along its shores the ice is growing after 2 days of snow and -26C tempertures.
