Palouse Falls Moon Rise
Image of the full moon rising over Palouse Falls in Washington. This was a 10 image panoramic stitched together in Lightroom. Due to the depth of the canyon, it is hard to bring all the different exposure levels together here. It was a little spooky standing on a ledge wide enough for two photographers, with a 100-foot drop a few inches in front of our tripods.
Rolling Wheat Field
Abstract image of the wheat fields in the Palouse, Washington State.

Kestner Homestead Maple
I captured a sunburst just after the sunrise on a clear blue day in a rain forest. Image captured at the Kestner Homestead, near the Quinault Ranger Station. I used f/22 with a 9 blade aperture lens to create the 18 rays off the sun.
I captured this image in late afternoon, above the rolling wheat fields. A Red-tailed Hawk hunts for dinner.
Red Alder Thicket
Intentional camera movement was used to create this image from a thicket of red alder trees along the Quinault River.

I wrote about how the rocks move on the race track on my
You can see the trail left by this rock stretching out behind it. Geology and natural occurrences like this are fascinating.
Mesquite Dunes 2
Abstract image of ripples in the sand on the Mesquite Dunes, Death Valley National Park.
Photograph of a lakeside bench at the Lake Crescent Lodge in the Olympic National Park, Washington. Intermittent rain showers filled the sky with dark clouds.
We drove up to Aguereberry Point in Death Valley National Park just before sunset. This image was captured as the sun was lighting up the tops of the mountains. The image captures the view from 6,453 feet high at Aguereberry Point to Death Valley at 200 feet below sea level.
Mt Whitney through Lathe Arch
Image captured just before sunrise in the Alabama Hills, California. Lone Pine Peak, which Apple currently uses an image of for a screen saver, is visible under Lathe Arch.
Mobius Arch 2
Image of Lone Pine Peak framed by Mobius Arch as the clouds roll in after sunrise. Later that day there were 35 mph (56.33 km/h) winds that brought a skiff of snow.
Mobius Arch and Lone Pine Peak
This image of Mobius Arch frames Lone Pine Peak as the sunrise lights up the mountain and the clouds. A storm was working it's way over the Sierra Mountains and it would be snowing before the next morning.
Alpen Glow on Mt Whitney
Photograph captured at the Alabama Hills, California. The sun had risen enough to light up Lone Pine Peak and Mt Whitney along the eastern Sierra Mountains.
Mesquite Dunes 3

Sunburst from the setting sun over the Racetrack in Death Valley National Park.
Lathe Arch Morning
This image captures the view of Lone Pine Peak and Mt Whitney, under Lathe Arch, before sunrise. The stars and Jupiter were still visible, before the sun came up.
The blowing sand had erased all of the footprints from the night before. The footprints in the distance were made that morning, by another photographer.
Kodachrome State Park
