Round and Round

Sometimes it’s nice to take a ride, and sometimes it’s nice to take a picture of the ride!

Round and Round


A Change in the Weather

One thing I love about the San Francisco Bay Area is the diversity of the surroundings. You can look to the east and see the rolling brown hills, look to the west and see green and trees. In the early morning there is often a layer of clouds that quickly burn off for a day of blue skies. This one spot seemed have all of those different environments at the same time.

Don’t Look Directly at the Sun

It’s OK to point your camera at the sun, though, especially if you get a sun star and rainbow like this! The Flatiron Building in New York City is impressive on its own, but combined with direct sun and the glass of this lens I was able to get some unique results! Sometimes lens flare isn’t such a bad thing!

To the Tetons!

I’ll get tired of winter someday, but for now I’m still sticking with it. This one is also from a recent trip to Jackson. The sky wasn’t clear enough to get the iconic peaks in, but there were constant clouds rolling in and out to make things interesting.

To the Tetons!


Untouched Snow

This view is very common along the country highways of Wisconsin, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t worth stopping the car.

Mt. Rainier

A flight into Seattle, and a gorgeous view of Mt. Rainier between the clouds.

Aspens

The fall colors are winding down but I’m not done just yet. These Eastern Sierra aspens were a nice mix of yellows and greens and bright sunlight shining through!


Determined Tree

This small tree was trying to grow out of a huge piece of granite. It looks like it will have a pretty hard life ahead of it. The sky was overcast and snowy, allowing me to shoot straight into the sun and still capture the scene.


Utah Slope

I took this shot while skiing at Powder Mountain in Utah. Obviously there was some fresh snow to be had on this blue bird day!
