After an amazing sunset over the superstition mountains in eastern Arizona, I stayed after the light had gone to play with some long exposures. It didn't occur to me that the moon would rise above the mountain and the cloudy skies that made the sunset...

Geyser Sky


Geyser Sky

Afternoon storms pass through the upper geyser basin in Yellowstone national park. A break in the clouds indicates a small window of opportunity to shoot the thermal features in the park before rain falls again.

Devils Pool


Devils Pool

A dramatic storm passes over antelope point on Lake Powell during sunset. Shooting into the sun allowed for this unique lighting condition that I have only seen here. The help of the graduated neutral density filters kept the balance of light between...

Haunted Preston Castle


Haunted Preston Castle

For something different I have submitted this shot of the haunted Preston Castle in Ione, CA. The sky was dramatic but seemed more appropriate in black and white. I used poster edges on the castle to highlight the architecture.

Driving back from a photo shoot on the Apache Trail I noticed the sun beginning to peek through a thunderstorm on the west horizon. The lower the sun got the more color shown on the Superstitions. Suddenly, and without warning, the color of the...

The Lighthouse


The Lighthouse

This is the San Pedro de Moel's Lighthouse. It's on the Portuguese west coast about 120Km north of Lisbon. Right after shooting this picture I had to climb a nearby rock because this wave came and washed the place. I only got to take one picture, this...

Lower Falls Rainbow


Lower Falls Rainbow

I took this photo in April of 2010 on the bridge at Lower Falls. I shot in raw, did my work in Lightroom 3 and had to do some cropping to get rid of distracting items because of the light and wider angle lens. I have since been back to try and catch...

The first snow of the 2009/2010 winter season at Yosemite. This is the last view of El Capitan and the Merced River as you leave Yosemite. In color, El Capitan was a golden yellow. Just amazing. But since the tones were perfect for B&W i thought it...

This image was taken on my first visit to Grand Teton national park. It evoked a lot of emotion for me as it is a place I always had dreamed of going to when I was younger. Being there in person was a dream come true. The last of spring roles into...

White Sands Sunset With Yucca
