I was driving to a friends house during a monsoon rainstorm and just as I got to her house the sun came out and I saw the rainbow. I quickly got out my camera and began shooting. The yucca were all in bloom and I composed this one just before the...
This was my first time visiting the Grand Canyon and I had arrived very late the night before. I went to Mather Point for sunrise, not knowing how crowded it would get. I wanted to take a unique perspective from this point, since it is the most...
This Image was taken as the sun was setting on the hills. I managed to show up just in time for the sunset. The hills are colorful, but when you get that last glow of sunlight hitting them, they just explode with color.

Sometimes you just have to stop and enjoy the show...
Taken at Yavapai Point on the mid March morning, the 6" of fresh snow lay on the canyon trees as the sun refracts thru a passing cloud. Taken toward Mather Point, the intense color and scene were made possible by that cloud trying unsuccessfully to...
