MARMOT THUGS: Mount Rainier

I was looking through some of the animal entries in the "Right Place and Time​ photo contest that I'm judging and was reminded of this trio of marmots I ran into skiing Rainier last year. Talk about chilling out...

I really hope you guys enter your best pic of the Right Place and Time over here: http://bit.ly/1aG4Hbb 

Have a great weekend!

Joseph Beuys quote. #art #quotes

“Art alone makes life possible – this is how radically I should like to formulate it. Man is only truly alive when he realizes he is a creative, artistic being.” (Joseph Beuys)
Art alone makes life possible. [...] Man is only truly alive when he realizes he is a creative, artistic being.

Sunset Cliffs: Hidden Beach (6 color photos). #sandiego #seascape #photography

Some impressions from a second outing to Sunset Cliff’s “Hidden Beach” when the tide wasn’t as low as during the first visit. When I arrived, the leftovers of a storm rained down over the ocean – I hoped that these clouds would stay until after sunset but…

Scripps Long Exposures (3 photos, Feb 2014). #longexposure #blackandwhite #photography #lajolla

Some long exposures from an evening visit to Scripps Coastal Preserve. Unfortunately, the clouds that were streaking so nicely out during the 270 second exposure time of the first image mostly dispersed past sunset. Exposure times for the images below…

+illiana Micalovich thanks! I guess I've always been a creative person and needed some creative outlet. :) And I was always fond of photographing, but what really got me started was borrowing a DSLR from a friend back in 2006. I was just curious about a "real" camera, and was hooked within the first couple of days. I like the combination of the technical aspects of photography as well as the creative part of it.
