I took this one on a recent photo trip to the Del Norte Coastal Redwoods. The fog was strong this evening and created a very surreal mood. 

I know I rarely post on here... I will try to post more regularly.

Rising Up

I took this last month in the Giant Sequoia area of Yosemite National Park. My buddy Daniel Ryan Seeks and I headed up there hoping for some great weather conditions and ended up getting skunked. But we still managed to have a great time and got some cool shots that may be more intimate than the grand vistas most are used to from there. This being one of them.

I focus stacked 5 exposures for this shot. I shot them handheld while braced up against the tree. I am pretty happy with how it turned out. I hope you all like it!

I took this a few weeks back as last minute as it could possibly have been. I was actually drinking some beers at The Bruery in Placentia with my girlfriend and our friends and watching the rain pour down outside. I was debating whether or not to head to the coast and shoot what could be a potentially good sunset. After all just because it was pouring down rain in Placentia did not mean it had not partially cleared toward the coast. I was messaging Daniel Ryan Seeks who was in the same boat. We were both procrastinating like crazy. Finally I made my decision and jumped in my car and headed to Corona Del Mar. Daniel did the same and we got there just in time. Point of fact we missed some really stellar light and color, but caught the tail end of what was a rather impressive sunset. I am pretty happy with how this turned out and I have another one from earlier with more color in the sky. I really liked how the light was reflecting off the rocks and water in this one. Hope you guys enjoy!

Red Rocks at Corona Del Mar

Here is a little seascape photo I took a couple Friday nights ago down at Little Corona Del Mar in Newport Beach, Ca. I happened to be working in Santa Ana for the day and the clouds were looking good. So I decided to head down to CDM and see what Sunset had in store. While shooting I asked another photographer if I would be in his shot if I moved to a certain area. He said no problem and then asked if I was Michael Bandy. To my surprise it was awesome photographer and expert steel wool spinner Michael Teague who recognized me because of my beard of course. LOL! Great to meet you Michael!
