Sandy Reflections


Sandy Reflections

I love to frequent this beach. Its located a short drive from where I live. Whenever there is a large kick in the ocean swell the sand here changes greatly. I did have to bail and run with my gear a few times when a larger set came through this...

Crater Lake


Crater Lake

Crater Lake is truly one of the most beautiful places I've seen. This was taken mid December in 2014. I set up (what I thought was) a good spot and waited for the sun to set. I love all the colors that reflect in the lake from the sky, how blue the...

Green Ice


Green Ice

There was a super low tide recently that coincided with sunset which meant green rocks abound! I hiked down this beach, found this exposed part of the rock reef and made the mistake of stepping on it. I was instantaneously ice skating and fell,...

Shades Of Green


Shades Of Green

After checking the tide charts I realized I would be shooting three days in a row. The super low tide coincided perfectly with sunset. I visited some of my favorite beaches where reefs and rocks would now be exposed. This was one of my green finds.

Moonlit Ice


Moonlit Ice

I took a midnight stroll on a black sand beach in Iceland and witnessed this... Chunks of ancient ice from the glacier Vatnajökull glowing like blue fire in the moonlight. THe beach is full of ice at the moment, but as spring approaches the black sand...

Moonbathing


Moonbathing

These ancient pieces of ice have traveled many miles from their beginning as part of the giant glacier Vatnajökull. They traversed the ice-fall at Jökulsárlón lagoon and became ice-bergs, washed out to sea and deposited on the black sand beach down the...

Crystal Cavern


Crystal Cavern

We are nearing the end of the 2014-2015 ice caving season in Iceland. Every cave is unique, as they warp and change shape throughout the season until they eventually collapse around spring-time. I was fortunate to have found my way to this gem on the...

Humpbacks Going Home


Humpbacks Going Home

You know it is the end of winter in Hawaii not by the climate change but when the Humpbacks are migrating back to the icy waters of Alaska. This Humpback was leaving Hawaii for the winter and decided to give me a farewell show. Taken from a sailboat...

Winter! What Winter?


Winter! What Winter?

With this year's winter in California stretching into a fourth year of severe drought, would-be winter storms hit just to the north of Southern California producing little of the badly needed precipitation, but providing for some spectacular sunsets....

Snowy Sand Dunes In The Distance


Snowy Sand Dunes In The Distance

A walk along the beach during the early winter months revealed light snow on the sand dunes of Island Beach State Park in New Jersey. You don't need to look very far to see the beauty of snow on the beach in the winter time...

This image makes me think about other worlds that possibly exist beyond our reachable space, about how small in terms of time our existence is on this planet. Looking at that beautiful sunrise that particular morning I was trying to imaging the...

Same Angle


Same Angle

Walking along the rainforest, I noticed the similar angle of the Common Moorehen and the Yellow Bird of Paradise. Patience led to the angles lining up.
