This guy was so fascinated with the sunset that he stood still for four minutes.

I was a little disappointed the cows have not arrived yet

Sorry for the influx of uploads folks...


This has been sitting in my archives for the longest time since I can't decide if I like it or not... Blend of 2 exposures for the sky and the sea stack at the background. This feels like there's too much sand in the fg, though I tried to break it up by those water trails. Would've loved the splash to be a little more isolated as opposed to being overwhelmed by the big sea stack at the back.


Chose to shoot this at a pretty fast shutter to get that splash, and in retrospect, should have blended another exposure for smoother foreground water. Oh well... Hindsight's always 20/20.


Pfeiffer Beach, CA. My very first trip to the California Coast...

… the California Poppy, such a beautiful and irresistible sight in person! The textured background here includes a mesh fence surrounding the flowers at the Shipley Nature Center in Huntington Beach.

This is an old picture of the sunset at Santa Cruz.

Something a bit more recent, added for Recording Images, this week's theme: Landscape. It's a 5 exposure HDR in Photomatix, hopefully not too cheesy (except maybe the color :-) Hoping to get out and take something new this week!

Actually, I can't take credit for this shot - my husband took it - but I love it!

The waves of the Bay, crashing into the rocks near Fort Point and the Golden Gate Bridge. Stayed out at the fort to get this shot, until the park rangers started kicking people out.


This is the last shot from our trip, we would wake up early the next morning to fly back home.

Reflections on the Merced River, in Yosemite National Park.


We had actually just stopped here to have a picnic lunch. I was amazed when I walked down to the river and saw this view.

Drove up the mountain today for a class with National Geographic photographer, Phil Schermeister. It's the last day of a 3 day class and we were blessed with unseasonably good weather (for photography that is). Yesterday there was an amazing sunset on the Sonora Pass as thunderstorms were occuring in the distance. Early this morning there was a bit of mist and this golden glow of the water. It was a long and tiring weekend, but as usual when spending time with fellow photographers, it was a lot of fun. Now time for a nap.

Well, It's not what I usually associate with rocking out in California, but the variety of color and textures on the beaches at low tide was really quite amazing!


I appreciate my wife allowing me to take endless pictures on our walks along the beaches near Santa Barbara. My son, who accompanied us a few times suggested she take up poetry! What better ways to document the beauty around us than through a poem or a photograph?

Thank you all for your great comments and your favs.

They mean a lot to me.

Look at the size!! Happy Friday to all, I'm off to eat strawberries :-)

I got a great example of the astronomical mirage effect here. read about how it works in this wikipedia article:

The contrast present on a bright day at Mono Lake is a bit of a challenge. This image was created from 5 RAW images ranging in exposure from -2 to +2. NIK Software was used to process and assemble the final image from the 5 RAW images.


Thanks for your visit and your comments. They are all greatly appreciated.
