Oil Abstract

Oil and Water Abstract – Featured Image

Kicking Off 2018 With the Renewed Weekly Image From Dubland My love for nature photography is not limited to strictly landscape. I do love to look a bit closer at times searching for beautiful intricacies and the abstractions they can lead to. This particular image is one my favorite subjects–oil and water abstraction. The first winter rainy day in Southern California can make even the most ordinary parking lot into a colorful palette of colors. With the new year I […]

Looking Back, The Images That Made 2017

The Year That Was It’s that time of year again, remembering the year that was. To recap my personal 2017 and give it full context we have to go back to where I was a year ago in 2016 as my beautiful wife was nearing the end of her three-year cancer journey. The image above I feel typifies my year. Out of the stormy few years I have had I am starting to see light. It’s not quite defined yet, […]

What’s Lost is Found – 2017 Edition

Looking Back On All The Lost Gems Rediscovered In 2017 It’s that time of year to reflect on the highlights and low-points of the past year. Every year at this time I pick out my favorite images from the year that was. I also like to look back at all the rediscovered images I found in the past year from my personal archives. I like to revisit old images from time-to-time to find hidden nuggets within the catalog of all […]

What should I write about?

I Need Your Input, What Should I Write About?

Now that Dubland has been successfully relaunched I am prepping for roll out phase two of the new site, creating new content for the blog. So here’s an open call for topic suggestions. What in the wide world of travel, photography, and the general great outdoors do you want me to cover?

Reflecting on Heidi's passing six months later

Six Months

It has been six months since Heidi’s passing, a little more than one year since I went on leave from work to care for her, and two years from when we learned Heidi’s breast cancer had metastasized. There’s a part of me that feels like all those events were so long ago, and another part of me that still feels like this all happened just yesterday and I am still in the same bog I have been in for the […]

Answering Questions About Me and Dubland

Answering Questions I Frequently Receive

Over the years I have received many queries about me and my work. As part of the rollout of the newly revamped Dubland I thought I would spend some time answering questions, specifically the most common ones I get. What drew you to the outdoors? I grew up in a family that loved to camp and nurtured my love for the outdoors at a young age. It was strengthened even more with the many Boy Scout and church camp outings […]

Polychrome Overlook - Dramatic Skies assignment winner

Dramatic Skies Assignment Winner

This week I was honored to have my picture from Polychrome Overlook in Denali National Park chosen for Outdoor Photographer’s Dramatic Skies Assignment. It’s true honor to be chosen by such a respected publication in the outdoor and nature photography. For those interested in the story behind the photo it was taken on the bucket list trip to Alaska my wife, Heidi, and I planned after she was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer. As we were working out our itinerary I […]

One Month

I can’t believe it’s been a month since Heidi’s passing. In some ways it feels like it’s been much longer, and yet at the same time, it feels like it was just yesterday. I would say most of my interactions with people over the past month start with the question, “How are you and the girls doing?” An easy question and yet not easy to answer in a passing conversation. Usually I answer “OK” or “We’re managing” and then measure […]

Changes Abound

Much like a stream forced to change its course to the ocean, the last couple of years of life have been filled with plenty of adjustments on our journey. This past week was yet another change in course. The company I work for, Rose Publishing, was acquired by Hendrickson Publishing. So what does that mean? On April 10th this year Rose will close its California offices and move to Massachusetts and I–as well as many others–will be laid off. However, […]

Reflecting on 2016

Saying 2016 was a horrible and forgettable year is a trendy thing to say and I won’t follow suit. I will say this year has been bittersweet. Yes it was a painful and unsettling year but it was also a time of experiencing many wonderful and unforgettable things. As my wife Heidi’s fight with stage IV breast cancer continued to progress we were able to make some great memories as a family, and go on some spectacular trips like our […]
