Return to Shiprock New Mexico


Photographing Shiprock in New Mexico was great to be out here all alone all night and into sunrise. Hard not to have a shot of American Southwest Landscape photography collection without a shot from Shiprock New Mexico. I have used this image many times now with other illustrations, and book covers. It continues to be one of my favorites. Looks like my plans have changed for the Christmas and New Years photography workshop. So I will be heading back out to the desert southwest again for winter hikes at night.

On one of my trips here,  I did this over winter endured -15 degrees and 40 mph winds. Lots of snow and blew out a transmission. But with all the images I came away with from that trip, I would have done it again. Luckily the transmission left me stranded at the end of the trip. But since then I have stopped by this place several times now on my way home and got some great drone footage.

Old Church of Picher Oklahoma


Spent the weekend doing night photography and time lapse in northern Oklahoma. This old church is in Picher Oklahoma as the title says. Most of this town is gone. A modern old ghost town and I really do not know how much longer this church will be standing.

Once a bustling mining town, the lead contamination left overs has cause the area to be listed under the Superfund clean up site. And most of what you will see here in this town are old slab foundations and gutted buildings.

Traveling California Pacific Coast Highway 1


New images are up along with GPS coordinates of some good photographic spots along the California Coastline, Pacific Coast highway 1. Some are common and some are not. I had only 5 days to scout the area for another upcoming trip but came away with a lot of great images.

Areas I got to photograph were areas around San Francisco at night, Bowling Ball Beach, Mendocino, Goat Rock State Park, Coastal spots north of Bodega Bay, McWay Falls, Big Sur, Pfeiffer Beach and the coastline around Santa Cruz.

McWay Falls was the real highlight of the trip as I ended this journey, getting very clears skies that evening and on into the night. I then went back to Pfeiffer Beach for more night shots, but the fog was starting to roll in and obscure the night sky.

Bowling Ball Beach was one of my main focal points on this trip. Unfortunately as I flew in the previous night, I spent too much time photographing areas in San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge. As time was […]

Thor’s Well


Thor’s Well is part of Cape Perpetua on central Oregon Coast. Also called Spouting Horn by some, Thor’s Well was created over time by the constant crashing of the oceans waves that carved out an underwater channel. The waves crash over the open pit and funnel back through the channel back into the sea. It is actually a huge salt water fountain operated by the Pacific Ocean’s power.

Thor’s Well is at its best when it’s the most dangerous to watch, at high tide or during winter. You should plan on getting wet if you are here at high tide. Check out your local high tide charts to plan on optimum conditions. I was lucky enough to have high tide coincide with sunset.
