More fun with Topaz Impression 2 - love the painting effects with this software and this image fit well for a possible upcoming L.A. project.

Last night's sunset from Emeryville, lookin' through the Golden Gate- a 600mm panorama (3 images stitched) with my Tamron 150-600mm lens. Once the sun moves south, I should have it dead center between the towers.

Love Glacier National Park. It rivals Yosemite in its grandeur. Here's a shot I captured while on assignment for a travel vacation a few years ago.
