Arches At Night


Arches At Night

With some feelings of being unsure of myself, I gathered my camera, tripod and the lens that I knew I would need and set out from the drowsy community, most in bed after long days of climbing the mountains. The streets were empty, the town asleep. I...

Wild Goose Island

There were almost too many clouds. The weather was pretty bad, it was drizzling (it did for the rest of the day), temperature was plummeting (around freezing) and thick fogs reduced visibility to a few feet. I took my chances with the sunrise. This...

Cannon Beach, Oregon


Cannon Beach, Oregon

Haystack Rocks are such a landmark that it's virtually impossible not to include them while shooting the rugged Oregon coastline. I feel a sense of complacency and awe every time that I have the opportunity to visit this place and slowly see the sun...

"dude, You Still Have Zebra In Your Teeth."

In Samburu Intrepid Wildlife Preserve, we came across a family of slumbering lions. Suddenly, the adult females rose and went off into the bush, smelling a possible meal, leaving the pride of cubs behind. As they rose and started stretching, one cub...
