Worn Contours

Worn Contours Receives Honors

Last Tuesday I was caught off guard when my Instagram started going crazy while I was getting my kids ready for school. To my surprise my “Worn Contours” photo was chosen as runner up in the Abstracts category of Natural Landscape Photography 2022 Awards. I am extremely honored to be included in such an exquisite collection of photos and photographers. Congrats to all the winners! I highly recommend you check out the contest results. As for the image itself, it […]

The Brooding Figure

The Brooding Black Knight

There are photos you plan, research, and refine; then there are ones you fall into and just say “wow”! This one is the latter. In fact had I not turned around while hiking to another interesting formation I probably would not have seen it at all. I am so grateful I did! Actually, I capture this outcropping, that I have affectionately called the “Brooding Black Knight” earlier so I thought I was done. Normally I don’t look for figures or […]

Sierra Haze Triptych

Sierra Haze Triptych

In April I did a little trip to the Eastern Sierra Nevada region. I didn’t have any set agenda, just some places I wanted to scout out, but on my return home the high winds kicked up the dust and made for some hazy conditions in the Owens Valley, so lingered a bit to see how that would affect the sunset. I had set up a composition for sunset, and while I waited for the setting sun I did some […]

Haze on Leidig Meadow, Yosemite Valley

Haze on Leidig Meadow, Yosemite Valley

One of my favorite things to do in Yosemite Valley is take in the transition from light to dark in the valley throughout the day. The prescribed burn in the valley added an extra layer of interest as the cool morning air pushed down the smoke into what looked like a fog bank at first. Last week my girls had their spring break so I took them on a quick trip, their first, to Yosemite. At least that they remember. […]

Mishe Mokwa Trailhead at Sunrise

Sunrise in the Santa Monica Mountains

This past weekend I got a chance to spend a day sunrise-to-sunset in a locale near and dear to me. These are the mountains that galvanized my love for hiking and the outdoors growing up. I don’t get to spend as much time there nowadays but it’s always a joy to revisit these old friends.

Looking Back on my Favorite Photos of 2021

Reflecting on the past 12 months photographically is one of the things look forward to doing this time of year. Reviewing what I did helps me get perspective of what I have experienced and achieved. Realizing where I have changed and what I would do differently for the upcoming year. 2021 may not have been as disruptive as it’s predecessor, but it was by no means a normal year. Yes, I did do more work, traveled a bit more, but […]

What was Lost is Found: Images Rediscovered in 2021

It’s that time of year where I look back on the images that defined the past year. My best images of 2021 will actually go out later this week. Right now I am focusing on the gems I uncovered in my back catalog of work this year. Last year I decided to revive this list and I thought I would keep it going this year as well. It wasn’t as prolific of a list as 2020, but it’s still a […]

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 […]
