Rose Frog


Rose Frog

I captured this little frog just outside my back door. In order to fill the frame with the rose and not spook the frog I opted for an extension tube with my 70-210 lens so I wouldn't disturb his me time!

I captured this in Santa Clarita from a park I frequently mountain bike. I was excited to see the hillsides this year carpeted in lupine. With all the fires and drought conditions in Southern California it's nice to see the new growth of spring. I...

The mosquitoes were out in force that early morning as the starbust appeared and the sky lit up. In spite of the repellent I did get bit. But I did feel compensated by the view. This was taken just in front of the Crater Lake Lodge. ISO 200, F/18,...

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.

Big Sur Wildflowers


Big Sur Wildflowers

I took a road trip from my home in Seattle, WA down to Big Sur, CA, which had always been a dream of mine. Because I was traveling in the spring, I was lucky enough to catch the wildflowers in bloom all along the cliffs in Big Sur. I'll never forget...

Sunset From The Dock

I was eating dinner in a restaurant in Key Largo that ended up having a front row seat to one of the most spectacular sunsets I've ever seen. I had to leave my seat to go out to the docks and watch the show. I wasn't the only one, and enjoyed watching...
