Elk Sunrise


Elk Sunrise

I moved slowly toward these bull elk in the pre-dawn darkness as they grazed, only advancing up the mountain when a wind gust would mask the sound of my approach. Once in position, I exposed for the peach colored clouds, allowing the elk to register...

Badlands National Park


Badlands National Park

I drove to the Badlands trying to capture one of the beautiful sunsets it presents, I didn't find what I was looking for, but I did take this after the sun had just dipped below the horizon and left the moon out and a little light on the ground.

Movement After Dark

This was taken south of Rapid City South Dakota in early Autumn. The sunset was beautiful but I actually liked it better after it dipped past the horizon. I used a nuetral density filter and a graduated filter to give me a longer shutter speed and...

This photo of Glacier Lake in Oregon's Eagle Cap Wilderness firs the bill of a just after sundown, twilight exposure. The wind always blows here during the day so I had to wait for the evening calm to set in for the mountain reflection to appear. It is...

Blanket Of Clouds


Blanket Of Clouds

Woke up at 3:30am in Acadia National Park and drove up to Cadillac Moutain to see the sunrise. I was concerned in the morning that the sunrise wouldn't be good since it was foggy and raining the day before, but when I arrived, I saw an incrediblesite,...

Bird On A Wire

I was on a dirt road taking photos of wild flowers. When this little guy came to see what I was doing. He set there for awhile watching me and I snapped away until my battery died. Now I make sure it is fully charged every time I go out.

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.

Nightfall - Lake Tahoe


Nightfall - Lake Tahoe

Late afternoon I set up at the end of a pier, focused on the mountain ridge line where the sun would set, and waited for some clouds and color. Nothing but shades of blue. Half an hour after the sun disappeared I turned around to leave and saw the...

A Break In The Clouds At Machu Picchu


A Break In The Clouds At Machu Picchu

We only had about 2 hours in the park at Machu Picchu, and it rained most of that time. The rain was so heavy on occasion that it became quite dangerous. As we were leaving, the sun broke through just enough to give us this spectacular rainbow.
