Getting drenched during yestrday’s sunset. It was one of those drive home in your underwear kind of shoots. .

Sunset at the Pond
It was a nice little hike to get to this view, and then you got to stand on a steep cliff. Im not a big fan of standing on cliffs, but all the anxiety fades away when you see a scene like this.
Happy Friday!

Fall sunsets on the California Coast are so nice. It’s my favorite time of the year for seascapes. Here’s a shot from last night’s sunset north of #santacruz .

Magical Morning in the Swamp
.
I had to remind myself to breath during this shoot as I was completely paralyzed in awe of my surroundings. .

Morning Bliss on the Bayou
I just returned from a wonderful trip to the Southern United States with my good friend Jojo. 👉@imagesofdream 👈
It was my first time in this type of ecosystem, and our stay was way too short. On this very cold morning we were blessed with some foggy conditions where the air temps hit the dew point. We hired a guide with a boat, and he showed us some great coves. I know we barely scratched the surface of this beautiful place, and I can't stop thinking about it.
Most all of our shots, including this one, were handheld which made things extra challenging. .

Fall on the Bayou
.
How Y’all doing? I’m just sitting at the airport getting ready board, and I thought I would share a quick sample from my recent trip to the Southern region of the United States. Although most of our shots were handheld from a boat, this image was taken from land with my 600mm that I reluctantly took with me. So glad I did! These fisherman literally appeared out of the cold morning mist. It was totally unexpected and I thought it was a nice addition to the scene. .

G Spot

One of my favorite locations on the coast this time of year. The sun sets down the center of this channel a few days out of the year. You get what nature gives you, and then you wait til next year.
My friend Felix just started a new account on IG after taking a year off to start a new family.
Show him some love. 👇👇

Snowshoe Sunrise
.
I was "cleaning house" on my external drive this week, and ran across this shot from last year's record snowfall in the California Sierra. So much snow had fallen that an avalanche closed the road into Emerald Bay for the entire winter. Myself and few friends put on our snowshoes, and hiked into Emerald Bay in the dark. It was surreal walking on virgin snow five to six feet above highway 89. As the sun rose I decided to plant my tripod in this location which is a perspective you could only get if the road was closed. It was well worth the effort!
I'm hoping we have another good winter in California!
Happy Friday!

Bad Moon on the Rise
Here's a shot from last night's incredible low fog, full moonrise over San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge.
Great seeing all the photographers up there last night, but the best thing was that my oldest son came up with me and shot photos by my side. .

First week of October is Fleet Week in San Francisco. I felt so lucky to get this shot of the Blue Angeles flying over the Golden Gate Bridge with low fog rolling in.
This was taken in 2015 shooting with @gettyphotography .
