North Maui Morning

This is a real “early bird gets the worm” kind of shot.  I got up at about 3:30 in the morning and drove an hour down the Hana Highway to get here before the dawn broke.  Even then, I nearly killed myself getting in position on the slippery rock.  I spotted this location on the […]

Henderson Canyon

This picture was taken early in the week in the desert.  We hadn’t yet found the motherload of flowers – but this was a nice start.  The faux-panorama crop was to omit the shadow of the camera – and the photographer – in the lower part of the frame.  Little did we know that these […]

A Foggy Morning on Gillis Lake

I’ve decided that late September is the best time to go to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area.  There are no bugs, there are no people, and you get these beautiful crystal clear days with low humidity.  Add to that some cool morning temps, and you’ve got the perfect recipe for misty morning photography.  This shot […]

Hay is for Horses!

Nope – not the Iowa cornfields.   This shot was taken over 4th of July weekend on Whidbey Island near Seattle.  I spent a long weekend at a cabin located on Maxwellton Beach.  I got a few opportunities to sneak away and do some photography while I was there.  If you look closely – you can […]

Lair of the Hawaiian Minotaur

I’m really not sure what the story is here.  I’m sure in a few years when it grows up nice and tall, it’ll be the perfect place to house a Hawaiian Minotaur.  This picture was taken only a few hundred feed from the Dragon’s Teeth (featured a couple of days ago) near Lahaina on Maui. […]

The Dragon’s Teeth

I’m going to share a couple of interesting tidbits about landscape photography with this shot.  This rock formation is called “The Dragon’s Teeth” and it is located near Lahaina on the island of Maui. One good way to find locations to shoot is to look at other photographers work from that area – figure out […]

Tabasco Cat

This image was from our attempts to get some video in the harbor just across from the San Diego airport.  Once the sun went down, the lights from the city made the most beautiful color swatches across the harbor – and I quickly reverted from video back to stills and started shooting.  I’ve got a […]

Font’s Point

A couple of days ago I posted a picture showing what I was seeing when I was looking back up at Font’s Point in the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park.  To put that in context, it’s only fair that I show the OTHER (more famous) view from Font’s Point.  This shot was taken right after dawn […]

A Rocky Start

This isn’t the view you usually see at Font’s Point in ABDSP.  Usually, you see what’s behind me when I’m shooting this picture – a vast badlands Grand Canyon-esque view.  We drove three miles off-road across the desert to get to this place by dawn.  It was a cold, windy morning – and an exciting […]

That’s a nice dingy you’ve got there!

This picture was taken at one of the small marinas that line Coronado Island in San Diego.  Jon Cornforth and I were scouting the area for a good sunrise picture of San Diego and went for a walk along the island.  These dinghys were piled up on the beach waiting for their owners to take […]
