Death Valley and Desert Adventures


A view from Dante's Peak overlooking Death Valley


Cloud shadows move across the Alvord Playa


Cracked earth in the Badwater Basin


Dawn breaking on the horizon


Lone grove of fan palms in Joshua Tree


A line in the sand


Route 190 as it heads up the mountain pass


Soft light paints dunes in the Badwater Basin



Wildrose charcoal kilns


Moonlight creeping into the kiln


Where the salt meets earth


Burn man burn



A trail in the salt flat

Cali Coastline

Wandering along the Cali coastline, from San Diego to San Francisco, with a few slipped in from a venture in Oregon.  

Scripps Pier in La Jolla

Solitary stairway, Socal

Perfect morning to catch some waves, Ecola State Park, Oregon

Cormorants roosting for the evening, La Jolla

In for the night, La Jolla Cove

Couldn't decide which version of this image I liked better, the orange glow of sodium streetlamps or the more neutral feel of my speed light.  La Jolla Cove



Patterns in the sand, San Diego

Ocean fog rolling in, Southern Oregon

Misty morning at Ecola State Park, Oregon

Dolphins playing in the wake on the way to Santa Cruz

Sea Lions soaking in the sun

Scripps Pier, La Jolla

A few from the La Jolla potholes



A good night's rest

Random Roadtripping Pt. 1

I'm going to be playing catchup with the next few posts.  Finally got around to working a bunch of images from some wandering around I did last year, I just kept on traveling and was so busy shooting I never found time to work the backlog.  

 A foggy night at the Umpqua Lighthouse, Oregon

 An old dancehall in an abandoned amusement park, Central PA

 A few from Crater Lake, OR



 Many forest fires raging through SW Washington

 Lighting flashes as the clouds open up an isolated rainstorm

 Crop burns and hundred of geese coming in for a landing

 High atop the Columbia River Valley, OR



 Striated land shows just how series the drought has become in Southern California

 My buddy Banks perched atop Sequoia's infamous Mono Rock

 The ascent up Mono Rock

 Just down the other side of the Sierra's are the strange tufa formations of Mono Lake

 QueensBridge's Finest

My favorite barn in the Palouse, WA
