Beautiful view and I love dead trees! I could swear I have a shot of that exact same tree, too. lol  
Even though there are quite a few of them around the canyon, I'd like to think we were in the same place at different times Jason.  ;)

Got my ghetto rig setup for the blood moon. Using a really old quantaray 70-300mm that I had for an old Nikon film camera, attached to my 6D.

The Canyon #2

Right before we called it a day and headed back to the car, I quickly shot off this handheld 8 shot pano.  The light was really starting to warm up.

Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous

If you've ever been to Sedona in the past 10 years, then you probably know about this house.  Who owns it has been a mystery for a long time.  Conspiracy theories have included Nicholas Cage, Johnny Depp, Thomas Kinkade and even the guy who invented Lasik.  Nonetheless, it's a cool house to see, but I hear the locals hate it.

Actually +Jaime Muniz it doesn't really stand out much more than any other residence there. Unless you are above it like in this photo or walking down the street. It is in a residential area as well. There are other houses IMO that stand out much more, i.e. in the Cathedral Rock area.

Thanks +Jaime Muniz. Not sure how this would print. The moon was so small in my photos, I had to crop 90% of it out. So, the resolution is quite small.

Fade to Blood

Well, here's the before/after of the #BloodMoon .  I totally don't have the right equipment for this, but still fun to try anyways!  

Happy #LunarEclipse !  I'm off to bed :)

Red Rocks in Mono

I just love the clouds in this photo!  I wish every day during the trip could have been this great for skies.  Unfortunately, it was only for 1 day.  But hey, you take what you can get, and I'll definitely take this!

The Canyon

It's hard to put into words how grand the Grand Canyon is.  It's just really f'ing big!  So glad I got to finally go there, although I was freezing my ass off!  I guess 55 degrees and 20 mph winds are too much.  My gosh, what has the desert done to me??

Introduction
Photography enthusiast based in Phoenix, AZ.  I studied photography for 7 years while in college and secondary school, mostly processing film back in those days and working in a darkroom.  I hesitated to adapt to new digital technologies, but have started to embrace it in the past year.  Now I couldn't imagine going back to using film.
