+Frank Leers - the foreground was just wet sand, without waves.  The waves were washing up to about where you see it start to get smokey.  

Patience, grasshopper. :)

Cody

This week's assignment for my B&W group was "high key."  I've got a white dog; piece of cake, right? Not so much. Turns out, Cody is exceedingly camera-shy, so getting a shot that comes close to looking like what I see when I'm not holding a camera was tough. In the end, I got my shot, and Cody got a snack. Good boy!

Agave II

I'm moving this week.  The new place is closer to most of my favorite photo spots, but I'll miss the little agave garden a few doors down from my old place.

Yes a lot of subjects. :) Almost all of them have fatal flaws or lack a nice gesture in a good composition. This one really works.

Short but Sweet.
Went to Joshua Tree National Park last night with +Phillip Colla to shoot the eclipse and a few other things. This is this morning's moon at total eclipse -- the shortest total eclipse of the century. Using a star tracker on my tripod helped to get a much sharper image than I could have obtained otherwise.
