We went camping at Bodega Bay and to get to the beach you needed to walk on these little trails. While going to this beach, I saw what I thought might make a good photo. I got down low and took the shot.

Kissing Camels And Pikes Peak

This tele-zoom photo puts the two main subjects close to the intersections of the "thirds" - the "Kissing Camels" themselves and Pikes Peak. Using the zoom technique makes the two appear much closer together than the 15 or so miles that separate them....

Bright Autumn Day In Gunnison National Forest


Bright Autumn Day In Gunnison National Forest

Even the high-sun times of an autumn day can allow the capture of images that show the magnificence of the changing aspen trees and their reflection in a nearby stream. The paucity of shadow details brings the viewer into the warmth of the scene.
