Seeing this arch in person was really eye opening. It’s quite smaller than you think, the opening of the arch is maybe 20-25 feet at it’s widest. The best time to see this arch is in the morning when the sunrise strikes it, creating quite a spectacular frame for the canyon below. Because of the view you do have to fight a significant crowd of photographers to get your shot. The shot below was about an hour before the sun […]
On my trip to Utah I had grand plans to try a lot of night photography, including capturing a shot of the milky way. Little did I know that of the five nights we were camping I would get only one clear night. Thankfully it ended being a great night, errr… morning to capture the starry landscape.

Over the Memorial Weekend I was blessed with the opportunity to explore the eastern and southern parts of Utah. The main reason for the trip was to retrieve our dogs which my brother-in-law and his wife so graciously took care of in Denver while Heidi was going through cancer treatments. That being said it gave us a good reason to explore a region I had never been. Below is an image of the popular Double Arch in Arches National Park, […]
I nearly stepped on the subject of this week’s photo. I was in the area photographing the Brea Dam (see last week’s photo). It just goes to show that you need to keep your eyes open when you wander a familiar area, you never know what you might miss. This wildflower is quite beautiful and fragile all-in-one.

This piece is a continuation of my experimentation on nearby locale. With this composition I was experimenting unifying three separate into one image. The wide angle distortion of the 22mm makes an overlap that doesn’t quite match up. The Brea Dam is just off the Fullerton Loop trail. My first photo for this project was posted a couple of weeks ago and I will slowly add to a Brea Dam gallery here as I continue to explore various angles and […]
Last week Heidi and I were able to get out of town to nearby Lake Arrowhead for an early celebration of our wedding anniversary before her surgery, courtesy of my parents. Thankfully is was pretty quiet and very beautiful. Our last day was quite blustery as you will see some of these photos, enjoy. Also just a reminder I am having a sale on my Etsy site, 20% off all order $16 or higher (including custom orders) Use the coupon […]
Tucked away in a little corner of the city of Fullerton is this interesting structure. It’s part of a flood control system built by the Army Corps of Engineers back in the 1940’s and the surrounding basin/canyon was made into a recreational trail area, smack-dap in the middle of the city. I have photographed it several times and decided to revisit it over the next couple of weeks as means to get my creative muscles (and actual muscles) back in […]
Taken while wondering the streets of Oslo Norway in 2008. When I updated my website somehow this picture slipped through the cracks in the transfer. Now it’s back amongst all my favorite images from Europe. Click here to view the full collection of images from Europe. To learn about purchasing this print click here.
I got the opportunity to go to Opening Day at Angel Stadium, first time in at least 10 years. It ended up being a not-so-pleasant night if you were an Angel fan, but it was still fun to welcome back the baseball season. This shot is a 5-shot hand-held panoramic.
One of my favorite times to go out and visit the desert is the month of March to see all the wildflowers the winter storms fed. I wasn’t able to go this year but I thought I would reminisce on past wildflowers experiences. Next time I go I will definitely bring a macro lens with me.
