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.

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.

Why So Blue?

Because everything around me is so red I guess.

Why So Blue?


Pink and White

The details of this Dendronephthya, or Carnation Coral can really draw you in. The shades of pinks and purples are a strong contrast to the fine glowing white streaks in the base. A perfect opportunity to get the camera up close and personal to capture all of the intricacies.

Lake Aloha

The hike to Lake Aloha is well worth it, especially if you take the water taxi across Echo Lake to cut off a few miles. This ended up being a 13 mile hike with a few extra detours. I took the extra trip up the loose rocks to get a good view of the whole lake and Pyramid Peak hanging on to some late summer snow.

All the Rocks

Pebble Beach on Washington Island has many rocks, but you can’t take any of them home! That would be against the rules. Instead I just enjoyed all the layers of color in the water.

More Fireworks

One more picture of the San Francisco fireworks show from Treasure Island. Enjoy!

Happy 4th of July!

The only thing better than watching fireworks is editing pictures from last year’s fireworks! San Francisco puts on a great show, and Treasure Island is a good spot to get a view of the city as well as the fireworks. Happy 4th of July!

Undersea Tree

This christmas tree isn’t a tree at all, it’s a worm living under this coral. It will keep its delicate blue crowns exposed like this to catch food and breathe until it detects something nearby, and then will quickly retract into the coral. This one let me get close enough for a shot with my camera before deciding I was too close and going away to hide.

I’d Travel All the Way Here for the Anemones

I love the sea, I love the fish, but I’d go on an entire dive trip just to watch the anemones slowly wave in the current.
