You have some really cool pics!  Do you ever license them for business use?

Giants
Monument Valley, Utah

After the rain comes sunshine. I love taking photos during the few minutes or hours after a rain storm has passed. The diffuse light is so soft it gives photos an almost surreal look. This photo was taken in Monument Valley at such a time. You can see the rain moving away in the distance.

Gradient Valley
Monument Valley, Utah

Here is another shot from that amazing sunset over Monument Valley. The full-size 50 Mpix (well, slightly less since it's a 16:9 crop) is available on my Flickr account.

Fog Valley
Monument Valley, Utah

Monument Valley offered us a stunning display last week as a storm moved over the valley and its majestic mesas and buttes. It was incredible to see blue sky, fog, rain, sunset and thunder in the same panorama. This photo is one of the many shots I took that evening and shows a closeup of the public entrance bathed in fog and sunset light.

This photo is also one of my first photos taken with a brand new Canon 5DSR and its 50 megapixels sensor. You can see the full resolution version on Flickr (https://www.flickr.com/photos/romainguy/19489500310/).

Here is a great presentation that all Android developers should watch. As always with performance, it's what you know that counts. Don't always apply rules blindly but understand the cost of everything you do.
 
I have posted slides from my talk "Eliminating Code Overhead" which I gave yesterday at Square.

By themselves, these slides are sparse on any explanation or reasoning for what's on them. The event was recorded and a video of me blabbering over them will be made available later.

The CPU, RAM, and disk are finite resources that are often taken for granted as unbounded. Not only is this obviously untrue, but the use of these resources directly affects the most important resource on a mobile device: the battery. This talk will focus on techniques that both libraries and applications can implement to ensure their effect is in general without overhead.

Lost Island
San Gregorio Sate Beach, California

The Bay Area weather is always unpredictable, at least to me, and Sunday was no exception. There were beautiful clouds and fantastic light over the bay itself, but the coast only had gray skies to offer. I was lucky enough to catch these beautiful reflections on San Gregorio State Beach.

Flowing Lava
Big Island, Hawaii

Note: to truly appreciate this photo, click on it to get the largest possible size.

Riding a helicopter is one of the best ways I found to appreciate the beauty of the Hawaiian islands. Some outfitters will even offer you a ride on a smaller helicopter with no doors. It's a little intimidating a first, especially if you are trying to swap memory cards or lenses while the helicopter is banking hard, but it avoids all the challenges of shooting through a window: focus, dirt & dust, flares, etc.

On this shot you can see lava slowly flowing into the ocean. The lava is red in only a couple of places, but a dark gray in most of the image.
