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
A friend forwarded me an amazing still photo taken from the air of camels walking across the desert. The catch… the shot was taken straight down at the camels. The camels themselves were white slivers, but their shadows were long and in clear form making it look like you could see all the camels laying on the sand. Its an amazing image and it was traced to the following National Geographic site where there is a
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’ve never been into caving, but from the description of this recent discovery in Sequoia National Park I might change my tune. Unfortunately it sounds like they’re going to keep the location of this cave secret for some time to come. None the less the description and photos are incredible.
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
