Wild Grass In The Full Moon


Wild Grass In The Full Moon

There was a spellbinding full moon on this evening. I sat on the ground and got a close up of the tip of a blade of wild grass with my 300 mm telephoto lens. I positioned the grass to be in the center of the full moon, and the moon was bright and...

Insect Highway


Insect Highway

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.

Mesquite Dunes At Dawn


Mesquite Dunes At Dawn

Mesquite Dunes in Death Valley California is a short drive from Furnace Creek. Early in the AM is the best time to photograph this location as it gets too hot midday. Seeing the sand in black and white gave me a new perspective of highlights and...

History Repeated


History Repeated

I remember this night vividly, July of 2012. My first solo photography adventure! I ended up one evening with the trees completely alone. It was really quiet, the wind sounded like screaming aliens, there were tons of dive bombing bats, and thunder...

Converging


Converging

I typically don't have a location or plan in mind when I go shoot. I usually just chase the clouds and end up where I think I'll find something interesting. This was one of those "let's go drive around and see what I can find" evenings.

Antelope Island


Antelope Island

A storm front was coming through. The wind was blowing around 40 mph, and the mosquito's were swarming. But the clouds were to good to pass up. ISO 200, f/16, 1/50 s. +2,0,-2 HDR.

Afternoon At The Beach


Afternoon At The Beach

a beautiful spring day at the beach taken with a Wide angle fish eye 15mm @ f22 to get the sun star. The color version is nice but I kinda like the B&W a little more. I converted to B&W in OnOne Perfect B&W and used the default setting which I find...

Sunset And Granite


Sunset And Granite

The use of a foreground element for a wide angle shot was fairly obvious for this scene in the dells. I had taken the same shot earlier, but came back when I realized how the light would hit in this area. Granite Dells, Prescott, Arizona. Canon...

White Wall


White Wall

I was shooting to the left of this scene at the time, but when I took my eye of the viewfinder I saw the light hitting the formation and abandoned the shot I had set out to take. Many times in wide angle shooting there is so much to take in that the...

Portals


Portals

This is on the south rim of the Grand Canyon. It's just as beautiful in color, I chose Black & white because I wanted to show a mood that spanned time and space, with just a hint of darkness that would emphasize the "Ghost Town" feel.

Tombstone Night


Tombstone Night

After setting up camp for the night I pulled out my camera and LED to see if I could get enough definition on such a enormous rock. As spectacular as The Tombstone was to see during the day, getting an exposure on the rock from the tiny little light...

Captains Embrace


Captains Embrace

One morning I woke up to cloudy skies and decided to try my luck at the popular Tunnel View. Many other photographers were there but we all were treated to a beautiful ring of fog that decided to hug El Capitan. Between the ring of fog and the cloudy...
