Here is another one from my spring trip to Zion National Park. Thanks for looking!


Check out one of my images in NG Traveler here:

I don't have any shots that are V-day material, but this one has a lot of red in it so here you go. I hope everyone is having a great weekend!


Taken early one morning in Mallorca, Spain. Thanks for looking. More photos at:

Canon EOS 5D Mark II, Canon EF 17-40mm f4.0 L. From the iconic "Racetrack" in Death Valley National Park. The tracks are left by the rocks that slide across the mud during the rare rainstorms that occur here. The rocks are driven across the mud by wind and gravity. Thanks for looking.

From earlier tonight. Just before the sun dropped behind a layer of haze I had some nice light and color to work with. The weather has been really awesome in North Florida recently. I feel bad for my Canadian friends who are still freezing :)

"Coming Home"


This shot was made a Dream Lake, Rocky Mountain NationalPark, Colorado in July of 2008. The animal on the shore of the lake is a bull elk. I was set up to record the reflections when this guy meandered into the scene, still counting my lucky stars. The shot is a single exposure made with a Nikon D300, 12-24mm, Singh Ray 3 stop ND grad (hard) at ISO 200.

I just returned from a quick trip to this Smokies this weekend with my Flickr pal, Anthony. We had nice light on Saturday morning and we shot several different falls during our hike. Anthony was on his waterfall A-game and scoped out all of the best vantage points, including this one. I should have just given him my camera and taken a nap :) I also discovered that Anthony can jump really high. He put on his jumping and dancing skills when he put his foot down about 6 inches away from a timber rattlesnake laying in the trail. Sadly, I did not get my camera out in time to take a picture of the jump so you will have to take my word for it.


Check out Anthony’s stream here: He has a photo of the rattlesnake in one of the posts in his “near death experience” image.

As dawn begins, a near crescent moon rises. Single exposure. Olympic National Park on the Pacific Ocean. Taken a couple days ago. Thanks for looking!

I spent a couple of days in Everglades National Park this week and was able to meet up with Paul Marcellini. Paul knows the Everglades like the back of his hand and was kind enough to show me around. We lucked out at at sunrise with some nice fog and mist. Comps were hard to come by but I came up with this one while trying take advantage of that color. Thanks in advance for any comments/critiques. Also, take a minute to check out Paul's Flickr page to see his awesome Everglades collection:

This picture was taken from the car on the drive from North Lake in the Bishop Creek area. The autumn foliage on the hillside was like streaks of oil paint on the canvas. Totally awesome!
