While headed for an evening dinner with our Hummer convoy, I noticed a rainstorm brewing in the distance. Trying not to miss the shot, I leaned out the window of the moving H1 capturing three shots to create this beautiful HDR image. The mix of the...

Hidden Lake


Hidden Lake

The hike out to Hidden Lake was cold with wind blown snow in our faces most of the way. We did not know if the weather would clear enough to allow us to get good views. As we began the descent to the lake, the snow stopped falling and the sky...

Bowman Lake, Glacier Nat'l Park


Bowman Lake, Glacier Nat'l Park

Walking along the shore of Bowman Lake in Glacier NP, I couldn't help but notice the various colored rock just below the surface of the water. Although it's mid-day, the rocks just really stood out and I spent some time here getting the shot I wanted.

The Pu'u O'o Lava Flow on the Big Island of Hawaii. When I first arrived on the island, the flow wasn't far out onto the 3-mile coastal plain from its source. This evening it was about 1.5 miles from shore... quite an advance. This is the newest...

Falls Through The Trees


Falls Through The Trees

It is difficult to photograph popular destinations because the best spots are usually marked out very clearly by the "photo op" stations! After taking those, I looked for a new composition, one that would capture more of the environment that the...

Consolation Sunrise


Consolation Sunrise

My plan for this particular morning was to shoot the sunrise at Marlboro Point, which is a challenging off-road drive. I woke at 2:00 a.m. for some unknown reason, so by the time I left my room I was tired and cranky. When I got to Marlboro Point,...

Another shot of the slow-moving storm rolling in. This time, the darkness set in. I did not have cover, so this is the best I could do. The first big storm of the season for us.

Typical Texas Sunset


Typical Texas Sunset

A severe storm was rolling into town. One of the only places to grab a beautiful shot of any type of weather is out at Ladybird Johnson Park just outside of town. We just got out of a movie and we rushed to this spot with enough time to capture this....
