Center of Attention - Sacramento County, California

Here is another image from Saturday night's excursion. This one was taken exactly 18 minutes after "Golden Light". With the rapidly changing cloud formations, lighting conditions and a smaller focal length, a completely different scene is created. Although I have dozens and dozens of images featuring this tree, I never seem to tire of it. This kind of light never gets old.

Thank you +John Getchel This tree continues to be very very good to me. I got another awesome shot there this last Saturday. Sorry, I've scaled back my social media time. Mostly just post to FB now. http://www.tactilephoto.com/Prints/Oak-Series/i-smRXnXx/A

Upper Blue Lake Special - Hope Valley, California

After a full day of chasing fall colors in the Hope Valley area of the Sierra Nevada mountains, I was rewarded with an even more colorful sunset at Upper Blue Lakes in the Eldorado National Forest.

The King and His Castle - Shasta-Trinity National Forest, California

I just returned from a 5 day, 1500 mile whirlwind tour of the California Redwoods and after seeing +Michael Ryan's awesome images from this location last week, I decided to make a slight (4 hour) detour over to Siskiyou County and the majestic Mt. Shasta. This location high above Castle Lake has been on my bucket list for several years now and the experience and view certainly made the somewhat strenuous hike all the more worth it.  While I hoped for the substantial clouds surrounding the mountain when I first began my hike to remain, I knew the scene would be memorable either way. Thank you for the inspiration Michael.

Reveal - Kyburz, California

It's always fun to photograph the big beautiful landscapes with epic sunrises and sunsets, but what I enjoy equally as much is focusing in on the finer things in life. It's the details that really make the difference in this world. I was blessed with gorgeous light earlier this week as I visited my favorite little spot tucked away next to the South Fork of the American River. The months when I visit, there's never a soul in sight, just the breeze in the trees, the rush of the river and of course the click of a shutter.

Golden Light - Sacramento County, California

Wonderful dramatic lighting conditions from Saturday night as a storm moved out just as the sun began to set behind my favorite oak tree. Between the camera phone, point-n-shoot and dslr, I fired off over 600 frames in the span of 90 minutes, each one capturing its own very unique set of clouds and light. When you are blessed with these types of conditions, it's hard to pick the frame to work on first, but with a sunburst, golden light and crepuscular rays, this one quickly rose to the top.

Autumn Vista - Carson Pass, California

This is the view as seen from the vista turn out on Hwy 88 after you top Carson Pass and begin your descent down into Hope Valley.

The composition is somewhat challenging as there are distracting elements (a couple of dead trees) that pierce your scene from below making you question where to begin and end the frame. You also might think a vertical composition could have worked better, but I hesitated to throw away all that beautiful sky. Tough decisions that every landscape photographer must answer for themselves.

Home Grown - Elk Grove, California

Who says you can't make a stunning (subjective) landscape image in the middle of the city? Me, up until last night.
We were out to dinner with great friends celebrating a birthday and as we left the restaurant, I looked up and said, "The sky is going to explode tonight". My friend looked at me with a somewhat puzzled look and I'm sure thought, "Okay, sure - whatever."
As we drove home, it looked more and more apparent that indeed some nice color was going to happen. Determined to not take another shot from the driveway, I drove 5 minutes down the road to one of the few remaining large fields within the city limits. Of course this area is completed surrounded with homes, apartments and strip malls and never really thought it suitable for a decent landscape shot.
I positioned the camera close to the ground and at a very wide angle to help minimize the distracting structures on the horizon and accent the incredible sky.
Sometimes the best plan is not having a plan at all!

Pincushion Protea - Santa Cruz, California

I thought I would add a new image to my "Isolated Floral Series" gallery on my website and chose this awesome Pincushion flower from the UC Santa Cruz Arboretum. Isolating this particular flower proved to be my most difficult challenge to date. For those wondering, it required multiple "Color Range" selections and then a couple hours of fine tuning. All worth it in the end I think.

I hope this helps brighten your Monday.

Thanks +Greg Mitchell .  It's definitely going to be on my "to buy" list.  I just went all in for the 17mm tilt/shift so I'm probably going to wait for my cash reserves to replenish before buying another $1,000+ lens. :)
