Summit Creek, Washington

I get the opportunity to descend a lot of canyons but I don't always have the time to set up and photograph the calm beauty of them. On this trip I did, after spending the day before photographing the descent I had a few hours early in the morning to snap a few shots before moving on to the next adventure.

The end of the day.

I try to always have my camera with me because you never know when you will get an opportunity to capture a memorable moment. I had spent all day helping to set up a 600 ft zip line for a TV show and my reward a beautiful view of the Channel Islands as the sun was setting.

From the Sidewalk

As photographers more often then not we leave the comforts of our homes with a specific image in our minds. But we don't always create that image. I left my house last night thinking of a tree I scouted earlier and how I was going to photograph it. When I got to the tree it just didn't feel right so I drove past it. First to a one spot then another without even taking my camera out of its comfortable spot. I decided to try one more place before heading home and found a shot that defined my evening perfectly, a midnight Fisherman! Like me he was casting and waiting for the perfect catch. Thank you Mr. Fisherman!

From the Sidewalk

5:45a.m Ocean Beach California. I pulled up to the pier and looked out over the ocean. I don’t think the ocean had woken up yet. The salt water lapped at the shore like ripples in a pond. A few lone surfers sat waiting for their day to begin and I sat on the boardwalk watching the ocean slowly stretch and wake from its slumber….. Living on the west coast I forget sometimes how beautiful the ocean can be early in the morning and I end up only photographing it at sunset. So last night when I saw a nearly full moon I thought about the possibility of an A.M pier and moon image. I was up early like a good photographer and on my way. However Mother Nature had a different image in mind and covered the setting moon in clouds. I didn’t mind much I was still enjoying the serenity of the ocean and had forgotten about the sleeping city behind me. I sat back and relaxed for a bit before I finally broke out the camera and fired off a few frames. This image is one of the first for a new series entitled ‘From the Sidewalk.’

Breakfast with a View

When it comes to sitting down and eating breakfast I have been lucky enough to have had some beautiful scenery to enjoy. Here is a photo of Brett Holman doing just that, enjoying some eggs and the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains.
