Lights, action, camera...

From a few weeks back in Newport Beach, California.  Turned out to be a good decision to get up early and head out for the sunrise on this day.

"Evening Grooves", Death Valley National Park.

An image from the Mesquite Flat Dunes with the sun low on the horizon, revealing the lovely patterns in the sand.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Thanks +J-D Bamford +Daniel Chen and +Chris Miller! J-D, this is facing south so I believe that's Tucki Mountain.

Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve, Huntington Beach, California.

After a week or so of observing the nice sunsets we've been having from inland, I finally got to the coast to one of my favorite areas.  Looks like there are still some nice sunsets left. :)

Have a good Labor Day for those celebrating!

"Salt Creek Pathways", Death Valley National Park.

I don't have too many midday landscape shots that are keepers, but I really enjoy how this one turned out.

Hope you're enjoying the weekend!

Thanks +Denise Goldberg.  Hopefully you'll get a chance to visit this year.  I might try to squeeze in another trip in a few months.
+Marc Briggs I'll have to try to explore a little further beyond the boardwalk next time.

"Alien", Joshua Tree National Park.

Forgot to share this fun image here.  It was taken this past summer during a campout with my friend +J-D Bamford.  Time to head back to JTNP real soon.  Took my little daughter out there a few months back to camp.  Unfortunately, I had to turn right around once we got there because I made the fatal mistake of forgetting to take her favorite stuffed animal with us.  Lesson learned.

Thanks +Daniel Chen.  In my defense, I don't remember ever seeing stuffed animals as part of the essential items for hiking or camping. :)

"Morning Clouds and Waves", Newport Beach, California.

From early morning a few weeks ago, looking down towards Crystal Cove. I didn't think there would be much of a sunrise but the sun poked through and lit up the clouds nicely. The higher tides also provided some nice wave action around the rocks.

The tide got a little high on the way out but with a little four-limbed action I managed to stay dry! Glad I decided to get up early and get out on this day.

Sweet composition +Tuan Le.  The wave energy nicely complements the swirls in the large rock formation.  And the soft, mellow cloud colors provide some relief...

"Morning Below Koip Peak Pass", Ansel Adams Wilderness, California.

A lovely sunrise greeted us before we started the climb up the pass.  The 395 highway lies thousands of feet below in the distance.

"Little Corona Rock Patterns", Newport Beach, California.

Some interesting rock details at our local beach, taken from last year.

There's been some beautifully skies locally for the last week, but unfortunately, I've missed the photo ops for all of them.  Hopefully there'll still be some nice conditions in the next few days and I'll be able to take advantage of them.

Landscape and nature photographer based in southern California.
Introduction
I enjoy hiking, backpacking and, in general, spending any time I can outside, preferably where the air's a little fresher.

Landscape and nature photography is one of my passions that has grown over time spent outdoors in the local coastal, desert and mountain regions of Southern California.  I continue to dedicate much of my spare time to explore and connect as best as I can with the natural world and at the same time try to capture the visual and emotional image of that experience through photography.

I'm currently a curator for the +DesertSandDay theme on Sunday, a subject that's dear to me.  The southern California desert is where I've spent much of my time camping and hiking and where I've recently started to dedicate more of my photography time.
