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.

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.

Mountains to the Sea

Iceland has amazing sights and photo worthy spots everywhere, all the way from the mountains to the sea.

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 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!
