Light Show II

A spectacular bolt branches through the clouds into the warm waters of the Atlantic in the same storm as my previous lightning photo.  I particularly like the way this bolt is partially behind some clouds.

Summit in the Clouds

The summit of Mount Whitney, the contiguous United States' tallest peak, pokes out of the clouds with its 14,508 foot summit on a winter afternoon.

Panamint Rain

In one of the driest places on Earth, seeing rain falling was a real delight. Here showers fall on the Panamint Range on the western side of Death Valley National Park.

Death Valley Rains

Finally after many years of visiting Death Valley I was able to experience rain reaching the valley floor. Being used to weather-less skies I found the transformed landscape to be very interesting. Here we see rainfall hitting around the Mesquite Dunes and Stovepipe Wells looking north from Mars Hill. The dunes are hidden behind the alluvial fan that stretches far from left to right while the end of the Furnace Creek alluvial fan can be referenced by the mesquite and other plants that mark its borders on the right. Snow can be seen in the Funeral Mountains on the right.

Summer High Tide Sunset in Santa Monica

The tide is peaking and the tide is in as a colorful sunset unfolds on Santa Monica Beach. Santa Monica Pier with its iconic rides compliment the colors in the clouds above as the Sun has dipped below the Santa Monica Mountains in the background. Sony A7r with Canon 24-70 2.8L II.

Light Show

During my last night of a vacation in the South, I was treated to a spectacular light show as a severe warned thunderstorm passed just by my hotel. The show was an electrical storm with lightning at least once a second. I felt compelled to grab my camera gear (this wasn't a photo-oriented trip) and was glad I did. The first test shot I fired off captured this spectacular double strike about a mile offshore in the Atlantic Ocean. This was a 10 second exposure from underneath the overhanging roof of the hotel along the pool where I sat for hours watching the greatest light show I've seen in a long time.

Dry Wash and Storm Clouds

In the mountains and the Racetrack Valley that lies beyond them a storm rages, dumping fresh snow in the higher elevations. Meanwhile down in the valley alluvium a dry wash cuts through alluvial deposits on its way to ever lower elevations.

Sunset from Independence

The last rays of the sun illuminate a colorful sunset scene viewed from Independence Pass at over 12,000 feet elevation. Thousands of feet below golden fall aspen trees radiate their golden leaves amongst an ocean of evergreen. The prominent peak on the right side of frame is Rinker Peak (13,783 ft).

Two Worlds

East and West appear as two contrasting worlds in the sky and below in this view from Death Valley's vast muddy salt flats. Multi shot pano with Sony A7r and Canon 24-70 2.8L II @ 50mm.

Above it All

The summit of Mount Whitney stands above it all as it peeks through the clouds on a volatile winter afternoon. The summit was playing hide and seek in rapidly changing weather, with a full on storm system pummeling one valley to the south in the Tuttle Creek drainage. In the lower right the cut of Whitney Portal Road can be seen above the snow line. All of the Needles were obscured for awhile giving a very different feel to Whitney Summit. Sony A7r with Canon 100-400 F4L II via Metabones adapter.
