A woman in a Guatemalan market selling fruit to people passing by. The color of the table, her dress, and the fruit make this photo symbolize what I think about Guatemala - everything there is vibrant.

A Friend In Shadow

This day we had an early start as we wanted to drive around the Dingle Peninsula. We stopped at a pull off along side the road to take it the spectacular views. I snapped some shots then we decided to take a break and take it all in. While talking I...

Respite From The Heat


Respite From The Heat

Thought this giraffe trying to cool off under this umbrella tree made for an interesting composition. He seemed motionless trying to conserve energy in the sweltering heat.

Grand Canyon Magic


Grand Canyon Magic

A chilly and windy evening soon gives way to warm gap light that fired up the rim of the canyon and providing some warmth to those taking in the view. This happened to be one of the most dramatic light shows I have witnessed in the canyon.

Heat Wave


Heat Wave

While some people may try to avoid the summer at the grand canyon due to the heat and extremely high visitation on the south rim. I found it to be the perfect time to go. After waiting for a few hours for the sunset I had found a spot overlooking the...

On a cold autumn evening, I captured this photo of the moon rising as the setting sun cast this warm glow on the mountains of Wrangell-St. Elias Nat. Park. The shot was taken from the Richardson Highway.

As I was heading back to my campground after a day of photographing Sitka, I came across this beautiful sunset.

Alien Road, Valley Of Fire


Alien Road, Valley Of Fire

OK, the road itself is not actually named “Alien road”, but to look at it in Valley of Fire State Park, you’d think you accidentally drove to another planet. The first time I saw this, I literally just stopped in the middle of the road to take it all in...

Oasis


Oasis

Is this an oasis in the middle of the desert? A lake in the middle of nothing? It is actually the remaining tidal pool in between large ventriculations in the sand caused by the retreating sea at low tide on Hunting Island, SC. I used a lowe...

Sunset At West Point Lighthouse


Sunset At West Point Lighthouse

Its been a while Seattle hasn't rain on New Years Eve and New Year's day. The weather was quite splendid, clear sky and dry. Although it was a bit cold but I'd rather prefer cold and dry than wet. Saturday 1/01/11 was also sunny, couldn't resist...

Whiteout 5

This image is part of an ongoing series of works experimenting with the effect of gross overexposure. I like the way overexposure can render an image down to an almost sketch like quality.

Mt Mckinley Peak On A Clear Day

In May the Denali park road is only open as far as this. Usually the peak of Mt. McKinley is shrouded in clouds. Luckily I had a nice clear when I was there. The whole top can be clearly seen.

We went to these Amish people's farm in Kentucky. It is an amazing life style and very nice and interesting at the same time. This guy was picking peppers and he had four full buckets of them.
