I took this photo in a dry creek bed while hiking in an interesting area at Mt. Rainier where there had been a devastating river flood a number of years earlier. This area was witness to the power, devastation, and beauty of nature.
Ice puddle at the golf course.
I was fascinated by the early morning reflections in the creek. Even though the Sierras are not "red rock" country, the dawn's light was so rosy hitting the granite peaks opposite the creek that it made for wonderful complementary colors.
Silk flowers using intentional camera zoom.
The sun had just set and the orange glow faded to reveal this blue hue on the ripples of the tide as it receded. I was on on the Hearst Pier and getting ready to pack it in and go to the car. When I turned and saw this color, I quickly brought the...
Antelope caves is an amazing place to have fun with camera. So many varieties of sun light coming from above of the caves.

These mountains south of Jackson Hole, Wyoming were draped with smoke from a nearby forest fire, creating an almost surreal landscape.
I was in Yosemite in late March and I took this photo of the Merced River with the bare trees reflecting in the relatively calm waters. It was a nice image as a reflection but when I flipped it horizontally and vertically, it became a "real" or maybe...
High in the Sierra mountains about 9000 feet, an old tree had fallen many years ago and, over the years with wind, rain, snow and sun the exposed roots had weathered and had become colorful in their abstract design.
Lone reed at the lake.
This rainbow accompanied one of our summer monsoon storms, common in the higher elevations. The light seemed to be coming from a couple different directions.
Canyon X has similar formations to Upper and Lower Antelope Slot Canyons. The area is accessible only with Navajo guides. This is just a cross-section of massive red rock formations.
Water Lilies bathing in a pool of reflective fall color.
Late spring photo at North Lake. Northlake is wellknow for it's fall colors and many images have been published of its beauty. I did very little peot processing of this shot, I only adjusted the whites and blacks.
While hiking through the woods looking for photos, this tree had fallen across the trail I was on. As I went to climb over, I noticed these furrows that had been created all along the trunk by insects, eating and burrowing into the rotting, dying wood.
If you look closely you can see where my dog's footprint is...oops.
It was one of those days when I felt restless to shoot but didn't have anything in mind, so I set out in Penasquitos Canyon in the late afternoon and just shot whatever came to mind. This is a bunch of reeds with the sun highlighting a select few. ...
Took this picture of a blowing dried out weed on a windy day. I used a long exposure to make the image more abstract.

After a lackluster sunset I captured the blues after coming down the tower on the top of Clingman's Dome in the Smokey Mountain National Park. This is how the shot came out of the camera. I used my trusty and convenient Zipshot tripod to hold the...
