Earlier this week +Peter Giordano and I met up out on the coast for some late afternoon / sunset shooting.  Here's one of the last (and favorite) shots I got that day.

The Pigeon Point Lighthouse, AutoAwesomized.

Well, the lighthouse photos in this series probably (definitely) aren't worth posting individually (apparently I don't know how to focus my camera, heh).  But when G+ automagically autoawesomizes them, they do make for a fun animation.  Thank you for the cool feature +Google+ Photos team!

Thanks as well to +Cameron Siguenza, +Laurie Rubin, +Barry Blanchard, +Paul Porter and +Paul Moody for such a fun outing.  Winter is's our time!

r i a l t o | Venezia

500px version:

So yeah, I've been away from G+ for some time.  I guess it's been about two months.  I had a lot going on and limited time, so some things had to give and G+ was one of them.   I'm glad to be back.  I see a few improvements were made during my absence, including the new online Snapseed editing tools.  I might try one of the tools on another upload, but for now let me post this one from Venice sans Nik/G+ plugins.  It got plenty of treatment with Nik tools during my computer-based processing, so I don't think it needs any additional help.

I hope everyone's doing well and I look forward to catching up on some of what I've missed.

I'll be a guest on Trey's Variety Hour this evening. The topic is "Common Photography Mistakes," and I have a few to share.  In fact, yesterday evening as I was gathering and setting up my equipment for this very shot I was sure I had committed one of the very mistakes I was going to mention in tonight's episode.

Tune in at 7PM Pacific Time (U.S.) and take notes!

Thanks, +Seamus MacRaghnaill. I've shot there a lot, so I'm always trying to find new perspectives and angles.  I'm really glad you liked this one.

sound asleep | fiordland, new zealand

I think I mention this every time I post a shot from Milford Sound, but what an amazing, dynamic, magical, mystical place this is. We arrived just as morning light was beginning to show, and we stayed well over an hour shooting the scene as the clouds, the light and the colors were all constantly changing. It's amazing how many different "looks" this place has in my various photos of it...all taken within an hour of each other.

There aren't that many places that I would say have affected me more than this place did. You just feel as if you're in a completely different world.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend....

Such an epic outing this was. Sure, it ended with my camera getting doused with sea water, but it was well worth it given the photographic bounty with which I left that beach.  And my camera and the attached lens are just fine.  Score.

Sounds good +Ceci A.  Let me know whether you'll be free on Sunday.  I have a photo workshop all day Sat, but I'm pretty sure I'll be free on Sunday.

Here, I am a photographer.
I'm a photographer living in the San Francisco Bay Area.  I've owned a camera from a very early age, but only in the recent few years have I really put effort into improving my photo-taking and editing skills.  I have the good fortune to live in a place with beautiful scenery, interesting people and a very vibrant and supportive photography community.

Bragging rights
I've lived in California since 1998 and have yet to feel an earthquake. True story.
