Its an exciting weekend here in San Francisco as its Fleet Week and that means the Blue Angels are performing. It used to be that the Blue Angels would return to San Francisco every year, but that has not been true the past 4 years as they now visit every other year. Like clockwork I make it out to get my best photo of the performance. Having photographed numerous Blue Angel performances here in San Francisco it neve
Had a chance to get out and take advantage of an approaching front of stormy clouds at sunset this weekend. I ended up wedging myself into the rocks and braved a few scares of larger waves reaching me. I timed it so that my bravery coincided with a turning tide to minize any risk. Ironically it was only upon leaving and climbing over some rocks far from where I had been that a large wave got me slightly wet. Luckily
The last few evenings I’ve been forcing myself to break out of my routine to get down to the beach at sunset. Around this time of year San Francisco has its summer and this evenings summer sun was worth enjoying. For those of you that aren’t familiar with San Francisco… the normal summer timeframe is often foggy and cold especially at the beach.
Photos from Day 12 of my trip to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge have been added to my web site. Although the weather on this day wasn’t magical, the flat lighting allowed for some great shooting, photographically speaking, of elusive wildlife and amazing arctic wildflowers. By far the cute factor for the subjects photographed on this day outweighed all the previous days combined, although as is apparent fr
Its taken a few weeks, but I’ve finally been able to finalize photos from Day 11 of my trip to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. This day could easily be summed up as the day of the panoramic. I have posted 5 panoramic images including 180 degree views of the Brooks Range and Coastal Plain (including the Arctic Ocean and pack ice). In addition to the amazing scenery captured in these panoramics there are a v
I credit my interest in photography squarely on Mirror Lake at Yosemite National Park. While in college I ventured out to this location in the early 1990’s, took a snapshot with a point and shoot film camera and upon getting my print back was hooked. For some reason the serene early morning reflection of the amazing cliff walls and trees struck a nerve with me and I realized I was hooked not just on photography
It’s been about 4 years since I’ve been to Yosemite National Park and stayed on the valley floor. This past weekend was beautiful and not too crowded, but still above average in attendance. A few things have changed since my last visit including the change in access to Yosemite Falls and the addition of hybrid bus lines. All in all the atmosphere was nice, but still a little more crowded than I would pref
I have always been interested in taking a photo from this spot. I finally got around to it after living in San Francisco for 5 years or so. After enduring a few nudists, a little rock climbing and waiting for the perfect moment I got the shot I envisioned. An interesting side note… I brought my film SLR and my dSLR with me on this shoot. Images from both were quite nice, but I ended up shooting 2:1 digital vers
