I need a road trip. I'm thinking of heading to Monument Valley, the NRAO Very Large Array, the Military Airplane Boneyard outside Tuscon, and wherever else strikes my fancy... Anyone have any suggestions?

The worse the cell phone coverage, the happier I am. The road and my cameras call.

This photo was taken standing in the middle of Route 66 in Arizona.

The moon rising through the trees near Curry Village, Yosemite National Park. It was very bright, even after midnight.

Heading back up to Yosemite Valley to get more shots like this. Should be a nice weekend for it. I guess I'll have to miss the Capitola Drink and click.

This photo was from 2011 with my D3. Hopefully my new cameras like the night as well as the old one did.

First one I looked at from last night in Yosemite. When I took this, I thought this was just a throw away test shot to check out the scene. It's starting to grow on me now.

Nikon D4, 30 seconds at around midnight.

I'm usually easy to spot, +Trevor Claiborne. I roam around in a 4x4 Ford Van full of gear, trying to get a good shot. My highlight of the night was just sitting under the stars in the middle of Yosemite  Valley listening to the bats flying overhead. It was a beautiful night, but not one of my best for shots in Yosemite.

On my way through the first 10,000 hours so my photos will get better...
Introduction
Work to live, not the other way around. I travel and photograph what I see.

I live and work in Silicon Valley, but I take road trips monthly to get away from it all.

My transport of choice is an overbuilt, custom  4x4 van that I call my 5-ton camera bag. It has been designed to go places beyond the beaten path in relative comfort. When traveling "light" I ride a BMW R1200GS Adventure.
