Tafoni for Me, Tafoni for You

I’ve avoided this photo for awhile, mostly because it was so busy I didn’t really know how to edit it. Looking at it with fresh eyes, I like the way the misty day and soft green moss leads you to the intricate and weird patterns in the tafoni rock. Take a short hike from Skyline Boulevard and you too could check out these interesting rocks.

Little Nemos

These little clownfish, or as they might be more affectionately known as Nemo, love to hide in anemones. They love it so much in fact that it took quite a while for me to catch them lined up just like this and grab a photo.

Mossy Light

Covered in moss and covered in light makes for quite the combo.

Holding on for Life

Sometimes, to get that sweet sweet nectar you have to do extraordinary things.

Canadian Clouds

A quick hike up 400 steps to the top of Mount Royal rewards you with this view of Montreal! We made it up here just before sunset and were able to spot the places we had been earlier in the day throughout the city.

Mega Mendocino

The sharp cliffs and rocky arches of the Mendocino Headlands can be overwhelmingly beautiful. Best to take a step back and try to appreciate the sea, the sky and the land all spreading out before you.

A Trail On the Edge

Rocky Mountain National Park has a lot to offer hikers as summer turns into fall. This section of the Fern Lake Trail wraps itself into a little canyon to perfectly frame the mountains in front of you.

All the Way Up

Big Basin is full of mighty redwoods. This grove is always reaching up up up as far as they can go.

City After Sunset

Sometimes it is the darkest skies that have the best colors. After the sun goes down the little light that was left over San Francisco was deep blue and purple and very moody.

Mendocino Mist

I’ve wanted to experiment with day time long exposures to capture waves like this for a long time. I finally got the right ND filter to smooth these waves out and make them look more like smoke floating around than waves. The jagged rocks of the Mendocino Headlands provide contrast to the soft look of the waves with their crazy shapes and unique arches.
