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.

Ice Cold!

I wish I was feeling ice cold right now! It hit the 90s in the Bay Area today, much too hot for my liking. I’m thinking back to when I was on this amazing beach in Iceland two years ago. There is a huge bay surrounded by a glacier nearby where icebergs break off from the glacier and float out into the ocean. Small chunks wash up on the black sand beach, like this unique little bit of ice.

Cold Enough for a Good Sunset

I expected it to be cold in Banff, but it was bitterly cold! This sunset was enough to convince us to go out onto the ice on Lake Louise to get some pictures, but the orange glow wasn’t enough to warm us up!

Up Through This Window…

… and into the sky.

Marin Sunset

Marin has many great spots to catch a sunset. From here you are up above the Golden Gate Bridge, and get a big view of the bay before you with San Francisco in the background. This was a perfect night, with clear weather and just a few wispy clouds to light up the sky.

Nice Night for Fishin’

As usual I came here for the sunset, but word on the street is that this beach is also a good place to catch some fish. On this night everyone got what they wanted!

Castles in the Sky

Looking up in every direction, all that I see are castles everywhere! Pena Palace in Sintra, Portugal was built to be an impressive place, tall and brightly colored. On top of a huge hill, it doesn’t stop there and has many towers that reach up to the sky.

Pink and Blue

Looking to the east you don’t see the sunset, but the reflecting light in the clouds is just as good when it creates colors like these.

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.
