It's as if this old gnarled tree had been here forever. I've made many trips to these spots along the coast of California that are some of my favorite places in the world. This shot ended up being my favorite of all the ones I took there over the years.
A spectacular light show shines above the mudflats of Turnagain Arm in Alaska. It's a challenge to make beauty out of mud but it helps if you have water running through it which happens occasionally in this spot.
Visiting Yosemite in the Spring is one of my favorite times there when the waterfalls are gushing down. Yosemite is known for its granite and spectacular mountains but its many waterfalls are equally stunning.
Perhaps the most beautiful morning in Turnagain Arm of Alaska that I've seen there after visiting it more than a hundred times. I'll always remember this day as a very special one because I got to shoot this sunrise and snowboard amazing powder after.
The coastline of San Francisco is spectacluar right in town. The old spa called Sutro Baths is no longer there but what is left is interesting and the land around it is beautiful with cliffs and sea stacks like this.
Somewhere in the river in Prairie Creek Redwoods I managed to find a spot that I haven't seen photographed much before. I call it an accomplishment considering how many visitors go there every year. It is one my favorite places in the world but I try to visit at the quieter times.
Mossbrae Falls in California are a hidden gem and one of my favorite waterfalls anywhere. The lush and green moss is dripping water and you often get nice weather compared to similar scenes in Orgeon and Washington where you deal with rain all the time.
Supposedly Jules Verne's "Journey to the Center of the Earth" was based nearby this area in Iceland and I thought of these rock formations as not only fascinating but also like they were guarding this secret and the area.
There's a certain time of the year when Eklutna Lake is best photographed and it's when the temperatures fall extermely low but before the ice forms. It's usually a week or two long window in the late fall before the temps rise back up again to more mild. Capturing the steaming lake in the sunrise is a wonderful time to watch the light and steam play together.
