Sun & Sky
It was a crystal clear evening with not a cloud in the sky as the twilight came over Aurora Reservoir in late October. About a week later we had a frost and the fall colors were gone.
While visiting friends we took a walk next to the river to watch the sunset. As twilight approached a group of ducks gently touched down on the water. They swam down the river, next to the path, as if inviting us to follow. One comes closer,and dares...
Big waves turn to big breakers.
As this storm approached we quickly hiked up to the sunset lookout on the way back to the campsite. The storm ended up skirting past us as we reached the lookout. Beautiful results

A rare opportunity to see Lake Tenaya frozen over. The last time Tioga Pass was open in January was in 1976. I took advantage this year and photographed Lake Tenaya frozen over. Spend some time finding composition and waited for the after glow.

During the monsoon season we get some fairly unique atmospheric conditions here in the Southwest. In this shot of the Superstition Mountains taken at sunset, a storm in the western horizon was filtering the color on the rock face, making for a...
Storm in the Colorado high country gets a little dicey. Just after snapping off a few shots of the approaching storm, hail began to fall forcing us to run for cover.
Post-sunset afterglow at Wembury Bay – looking towards the island known as the Mewstone – in the South Hams area of Devon, UK. The foreshore shows sections of Lower Devonian rocks – mainly red mudstones, now metamorphosed to slate, siltstones and...
Hiked the Mist Trail in Yosemite NP to Vernal and Nevada Falls in mid October. This is shot from the John Muir trail, which we took back to the valley floor, looking back at Nevada Falls, Liberty Cap, Mt. Broderick and the not to often seen backside...
As the year comes to an end a reflection of ones progression is often the key thought
Walking along the waters edge at sunset. Sunsets are spectacular in summer, with the heat and dust haze in the sky reflecting these beautiful colours.
