Over two weeks and no updates! Shame on me.
This is an image I made while camping with some friends at just under 9000' in the Sierra National Forest.
I was hiking back up from one of the lakes, there's 4 in the area, to our campground and turned a corner on the trail to catch this view just in time. There were trees just outside of either edge of the frames making the options for composition pretty limited. There was actually a better view of this from our campground that would have made a wonderful panoramic. I guess I'm just going to have to go back.
Enjoy and feel free to leave me your thoughts, questions, whatever.

I made these images this evening with my daughter just before her bed time. The whole session couldn't have lasted longer than two minutes and she gave me so many great expressions. I only snapped off 11 frames, and got 11 completely unique faces.

Can anyone guess what this is?
Click thru to find out. It's pollen on asphalt after a heavy rain. This image was made on my driveway beneath an oak tree in the spring time. I was noticing earlier in the day that the pollen was streaming into formations that looked like little galaxies. I used a flash mounted on the camera bouncing off of a white wall camera top-right. This brought out the texture in the pollen and asphalt to give the image depth and a shimmer that lent itself to the illusion of space. Read More / View Exif / Purchase Prints...

This image was made while camping this weekend with my family and some friends in the Sierra National Forest just outside the Ansel Adams Wilderness. We had a wonderful time and I got a few opportunities to make some images that I'm very happy with. Hope you enjoy.

I made this image this morning from the patio in my back yard. Yosemite is just beyond that ridge and a little to the north. I feel very blessed to be living where I do at this time in my life.
I made just over 150 images of this sunrise, this being the first "click", and its very difficult picking a favorite at this point. I think that I'll post a "Progression of a Sunrise" tomorrow so that I can share with you all just how spectacular the show was this morning. It's amazing how much of a difference there is between the first frame and the last.
