Gathering Storm Clouds Over Death Valley


Gathering Storm Clouds Over Death Valley

Death Valley receives little rainfall each year. It is rare to see storm clouds form, and even rarer to actually have rain fall from them. When rain does fall it often evaporates before it reaches the ground. These clouds produced no rain.

Spring Lake At Badwater In Death Valley


Spring Lake At Badwater In Death Valley

After an unusually wet winter, followed by the "100 year" flower bloom, a large, temporary lake formed on the Salt Pan at Badwater. This photograph was taken on a somewhat overcast day. The reflection of the hills in the still lake provided an...

Dante's View- Death Valley National Park


Dante's View- Death Valley National Park

Taken Early Morning facing North West. This is a favorite morning spot for many photographers. There were at least 25 photographers there this morning- Sat Feb 20th. I too a series of 7 vertical shots and stitched them together in PS (CS5). I used a 3...

Agave Dusk Wavelengths


Agave Dusk Wavelengths

A dead agave bloom stalk in my brother in laws back yard. A windy day had left a lot of dust in the air for some good sky color. Obviously I bumped up the saturation and contrast to get a more dramatic result. Hey, it's art, not reality.

San Xavier Mission Front Quarter B&w


San Xavier Mission Front Quarter B&w

Late morning light, from half way up the shrine hill to the northeast of the mission. It's much more interesting in the harsh daylight with black and white.

Prairie Primrose


Prairie Primrose

This is my favorite twilight image. It was made during a once in 50 years bloom of Prairie Primrose at Pawnee National Grasslands. I love how the white flowers pop out in the after sunset light. The birds were singing and the flowers smelled good too....

Iconic


Iconic

This is a great example of why you never leave after the sun sets. Many, many photographers hike to photograph this beautiful arch at Arches National Park. On this late October day, all the other sunsets watchers and photographers had packed up and...

Badwater Basin


Badwater Basin

Badwater Basin is the lowest point in North America, with an elevation of 282ft below sea level. The reason why this area is called badwater is because of the salt that accumulates making the spring-fed pools next to the road undrinkable. I took this...

Midnight Racer


Midnight Racer

I captured this on the Race Track Playa in Death Valley National Park. I had just finished up capturing a 2 hour star travel sequence at 1am on a full moon night, when I was headed back to camp when I came across this scene begging for me to capture it.

The Grandstand


The Grandstand

Anyone who has traveled to Death Valley with intent on seeing the Grandstand/Racetrack has probably heard the horror story (I believe there is only one regarding a mother and daughter) and received words of determent from the DV rangers based on the...

Randy Offering Us A Bottle Of Water In The Nevada Desert


Randy Offering Us A Bottle Of Water In The Nevada Desert

On our way to St George, Utah, on a two week motorcycle trip. Don't know why we went in August when it was so hot.

The Choir


The Choir

This area hasn't been officially named the choir. It is a coinage that i came up with. This area is located east of the Egg Factory - about a 10-15 minute walk. The entire area is amazing, colourful, scenic, weird, surreal..... unfortunately, my...

Tara Salar


Tara Salar

Photo taken on 05/April/2011 during a treking in the Atacama Desert. This place is called Salar de Tara. A salar is a salt desert. The scenary looks like more other planet than the Earth itself.

Altiplane Volcanoes


Altiplane Volcanoes

Volcanoes of Atacama desert. I shot in RAW and converted into B&W using Lightroom 3. The photo was taken from a car in movement.

Mono Lake


Mono Lake

I decided to make the 2 hour drive from Tahoe to spend my last day exploring a bit of Yosemite and Mono Lake. Needless to say, the early morning was greeted with thunder, lightning and torrents of rain in volume that almost prompted me to go online...

I17 Scenic Area


I17 Scenic Area

This scenic area is an actual designated scenic area off of i17, traveling south towards Sedona (about 5 miles before the Sedona exit). Nvtls, very nice view of the Arizona landscape north of Sedona - which would yield wonderfully to a panorama treatment.

Watson Lake Dells


Watson Lake Dells

If massive boulders and an abundance of granite in every shape and form appeals to you, then Watson Lake Dells is a must see. A short 20-30 minute hike along a well-maintained bike/jogging path introduces you to the first boulders of Watson Lake...

View North Of Courthouse Butte


View North Of Courthouse Butte

Sedona is a special place. Not because of the multi-million dollar real estate be-splattering the landscape; not because of all the high-end spas and holistic centers tooting well-being; not because of the energy centers (vortexes) which promote...
