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.

Summer Snow

Summer is winding down to its final days, and as usual I already have snow and ski season on the brain. We got our first snow in Tahoe this week, and I dug into the archives to find this image of some early snow in the Eastern Sierras. Winter is coming and the mountains are calling!

The Waiting Game Pays Off

Scouting out the perfect sunset spot. Standing around in the cold. Being late for dinner. Sometimes it all pays off and the sunset happens just as you pictured it with the perfect red rocks, clouds and colors from the sunset.

The Rock Steals the Show

This night featured some pretty great light, but the real stars of the show were all of the layers in this rock pinnacle. The texture and different shades of orange really stood out against the evening sky.

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.

Nudi!

I love nudibranchs. Very tiny, hard to find, hard to photograph, and full of so many crazy colors when you get the photo right. I could spend a whole dive getting a good shot but normally have to move one after taking a few pics. Some would call this a sea slug, but I think the proper name for this one, Dermatobranchus Ornatus, rolls of the tongue much better!

Richelieu Rock

One of my best dives in Thailand was at Richelieu Rock. This reef has a crazy amount of life, both fish and corals, and in this spot they all swirl together to make a very busy but very intricate pattern. The rock itself barely sticks out of the water, and is pretty far from other islands. This isolation must make it a safe place for all this life to exist.

Fading Fast

The light was changing quickly and I had to move fast. I couldn’t see the horizon in any direction from where I was in the city. When I looked up I realized the shot I was looking for was right above me and my problems were solved.

Kolob Terrace Sunset

It took some scouting, scrambling and a short sprint to get here in time for sunset. It wasn’t far off the road in the Kolob Terrace area of Zion, but it also wasn’t directly accessible. When a sunset calls sometimes I have to make a run for it!

Officially Fall

Well, that’s it. Fall is here. The weather doesn’t feel like it yet, but these trees in the Eastern Sierra are on full display for the changing of the season.
