Phantom Limb Revisited

Phantom Limb, Revisited

A few weeks ago I posted this image not sure about what to share about it at the time. I had no intentions at that moment to make this follow up a Thanksgiving post, but thinking about it now it does seem a bit fitting. How do you approach gratitude while still grieving loss? I didn’t even set out to make this composition associate with loss when I shot it, but as I was fumbling around in processing this piece […]

Phantom Limb

Phantom Limb

There are photographs you plan out, work on, revisit, and refine; then there are ones you just fall into. This is the latter. It’s funny because I have walked by these two trees countless times hiking in the hills above my house, but this particular instance I was stuck by the contrast between the two live oaks and how they related to each other. This photo has been quite a conundrum for me, I think I have rewritten this post […]

Sunset at Colter Bay, Grand Teton NP

Photo Recognition, Westways’ 2021 Photo Contest

I was honored to find out one of my photos, Colter Bay at Sunset, was selected as an honorable mention winner in Westways’ 2021 Photo Contest. This photo was one of the highlights from our two-week family trip this summer that spanned 8 states, 5 national parks, 3 national monuments, and 3 state parks. The crux of the trip was family celebrations. We started the trip celebrating a 50th anniversary for Heidi’s parents and ended it with a 75th birthday […]

Freezing Pond, Eastern Sierra Nevada

A Frosty Fall in the Eastern Sierra

Last week my family did a quick trip up to Virginia City for my unce’s 80th birthday party. I knew there would be potential of some beautiful fall colors on the trip so I kept close tabs on some of my favorite Eastern Sierra spots for fall. By Wednesday it was looking like there was a strong possibility of snow on our weekend trip which made things even more interesting. The fall colors themselves weren’t at their peak, we were […]

Welcoming Autumn

Welcoming Autumn, Powder Canyon

Autumn in So Cal may not be as dramatic as it is in most parts of the US, but there are those little hints it has arrived all around. Like that cool pocket of air you walk through on a morning hike feels a bit crisper and refreshing. You can see some color change in the foliage (though most of these ‘fall colors’ you want to avoid unless you like itching). And the morning cloud cover seems to stick around […]

Three Sunrises

Three Sunrises

Two weeks ago I got a couple of days to myself, my girls went up to grandma and grandpa’s for half the week. As nice as it would have been to get away during my time sans kids I had a lot of work I needed to do at home. So instead I created a mini-project for myself. Three sunrises, three local spots within 40 minutes from my house. It was a much needed creative exercise to clear my head […]

Two Desert Panoramics

Two Desert Panoramics

The minimalism of the desert landscape from afar is one of things I truly cherish when I explore the Mojave Desert. These two desert panoramics showcase that perfectly. Both were taken on my most recent trip last month up Highway 395, the same day in fact. The first was on my morning drive as I was leaving the LA metro area, and the latter was late afternoon as I neared the campsite for the first night of my trip at […]

Dichotomy, Bristlecone Tree

Dichotomy, Bristlecone Tree

If I had to pick one subject to photograph my whole life I would be quite happy choosing these rugged, beautifully ancient trees. Thankfully I don’t have to make that decision. The dichotomy of the scene, with the harsh lighting of the midday sun and the clouds dissipating over the White Mountains made this moment an apt time for doing a black & white composition. I was both delighted and disheartened to find out I was able to drive up […]

Eastern Sierra Sunrise

Eastern Sierra Sunrise

When I was planning my trip through the Eastern Sierra Nevada this was high on the list of places to revisit. The whole week leading up I watched the weather forecast frequently hoping for a storm or clouds of any kind. But after the trip started chances of any clouds were getting slimmer by the hour. The night preceding this shot I saw all the clouds blow away as I sat on the Eureka Sand Dunes waiting for a sunset […]
