Valley of Light

My wife and I spent the weekend near Leavenworth, Washington at a cozy cabin with this as the view. Although I didn’t know if there would be much of a sunset the first night, the sun shone horizontally down a nearby valley for a wonderful show. Having a glass of wine at hand didn’t hurt, ...

Middle Falls black-and-white

September and October are turning out to be extremely busy for me, work wise, so as a quick distraction/mental escape here’s another photo of Middle Falls near McCloud, California. (Here’s an earlier shot I posted.) The falls are easily accessible after a short hike, and I imagine the autumn colors are starting to look really ...

Upper Newhalem Creek

(Click here to view the image larger) To reach this area of Newhalem Creek, you first follow the Rock Shelter trail, which ends in a section of mountain adorned with petroglyphs where Native Americans would take shelter from the elements. But don’t turn toward the shelter and its accessible trail. Instead, turn left at the ...

One More Tulip Sunrise Photo

I know, it’s another photo from last week’s sunrise photo shoot at the tulip fields. But I can’t help sharing the beautiful light we encountered that morning (especially since it’s a very gray and rainy day in Seattle today). Enjoy! [Interested in purchasing a print? Go to Zenfolio or 500px.] If you like the work ...

Tulip Sunrise

(Click the photo to view it larger) Waking up at 4am to drive an hour north isn’t my definition of a good way to start a Saturday morning. This weekend, however, my family and I (yes, my daughter, too) headed at dark to Mount Vernon, Washington to photograph the tulip fields at sunrise. The weather ...

Sparks Lake Cool Sunset

This photo comes from Sparks Lake in Oregon. I promise, I didn’t add any purple tone to this. (If you don’t believe me, take a look at Mason’s photo.) It was a beautiful sunset, and great to be out in it, despite the cold. As always, this looks better bigger. If you like the work ...

Risk Appetite

I love this post by my friend Mason Marsh, “Risk Appetite.” Photographers take all sorts of risks when shooting, and sometimes it ends up with broken camera bodies and human bodies. What’s your risk appetite? Yes, I want to capture great photos, but I also like being in one piece. He writes: I feel for ...

South Falls Bridge

I want to return to Silver Falls State Park near Silverton, Oregon, because I feel like I only scratched the surface of the area when I visited in October. This photo was shot crouched at the edge of the creek near a bridge at the South Falls. If you like the work I do, please ...

Smith Rocks Sunrise

When I wrapped up the Oregon Wonders Photo Workshop in October, I had to quickly jump back into several ongoing projects, including updating my books about OS X Mavericks and the newest iPads. I took solace in the fact that winter would give me an opportunity to go through the shots. This week has been ...

Cedar Creek Grist Mill

Lots of rain couldn’t dampen my photo excitement while shooting the Cedar Creek Grist Mill in October. The autumn colors were just a little past prime, but everything else was visually wonderful. This is shot from a covered bridge nearby. If you like the work I do, please consider signing up for my low-volume mailing ...
