Joshua Tree
.
This was my first visit to JT. After driving 7 hours we arrived with torrential down pouring, flash flood alerts on the phone, and then having to drive through several fast moving washouts on the road. Not knowing where to go, we just drove around slowly and waited the storm out. The storm broke in last 30 minutes of daylight, and rainbows started popping off everywhere to the east. Not having a solid composition it was a run around "shoot from the hip" scenario. Then the burn came and I was running around for that too. Here is one shot from that incredible evening. .
Wishing everyone a great weekend!!

Lightning on the Pacific
.
What an amazing show yesterday! I am just amazed at all the incredible images from San Francisco! Kudos to all you guys!! I had been driving all day from Joshua Tree, and lightning started right when I got home. I grabbed my youngest son, and headed up to Skyline. This was my best shot, and as night fell the storm cell moved north. .

Moonlit Joshua Tree
Just returning from my first trip to Joshua Tree. What an incredible place! Takes a while wrap your head around shooting this place, but eventually things start to click. 😄

Full Moon at SFO
.
Plan A was to shoot the moonrise over San Francisco, but the fog was kind of nasty. Luckily my friend @timmcmanus invited me to one of his spots near SFO. This isn't a high quality shot, but nonetheless a fun capture. The smoke filled air made for some colorful conditions. .

I still haven't captured the truly epic rays that so many people have been fortunate to get here, but I'm getting closer. 😄
Happy Friday!! .

After shooting some LFE at the GGB yesterday morning some of us lingered around long enough to get some nice rays coming through the Eucalyptus trees below Conzelman road. .

Perseid Meteor Shower
This shot is from last year on Mount Hamilton with @lmontezemolo and @maxl_photos and a few other friends. I'm not sure how good this year will be with the moon rising around 10-11 pm.
Wishing everyone a great weekend!

Monsoon Fizzle
I think a lot of Bay Area photographers were hoping for an apocalyptic monsoon sunset last Thursday. Well it didn't quite happen, but it was still nice to see such dramatic clouds, and whales spouting off everywhere! I also brought home 5 ticks attached to me from standing on the cliffs above. .
