Previous Photos of the Day...
Halfdome in Yosemite National Park. Halfdome is a unique experience for a day hike! Here is some more information about it: http://www.nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/halfdome.htm
I took this photo on one, sunny afternoon. These pink lilies were nearby my home and I walked past them for a few days, thinking to myself each time, "I need to bring my camera!" Once I did I was able to capture this image of this beautiful flower!
While at "Neigh Day" presented by Diamonds in the Rough Horses (Equine) Rescue Shelter, I was walking through the barn looking at all the horses available for adoption and this horse was posing perfectly for its portrait!
On our way to the Indian Bar campsite their were a couple of great clearings to see Mount Rainier!
After we left Mowich Lake Campground, my buddy and I decided to take the Spray Park trail instead of the Wonderland Trail Proper. I read in Bette Filley's book, "Discovering The Wonders of the Wonderland Trail" that Spray Park offers some magnificent views whereas the Wonderland Trail is more forested and covered. The only catch is that if it's bad weather, Spray Park is absolutely miserable as there is no cover and it's the highest point on the trail. Thankfully we lucked out and had blue skies and great views! Here is a photo of Mount Pleasant as seen from the Spray Park Trail.
On our way to the Indian Bar campsite we crossed over the Panhandle Gap. This photo was taken a short distance after we crossed the gap.
This photo won awards for being one of the top photos during the entire month of May on Pixoto.com! While at "Neigh Day" presented by Diamonds in the Rough Horses (Equine) Rescue Shelter, I was walking through the horse pastures and I was able to capture this photo of the colt, "Cheveyo" with his momma, "Breezie."
This waterfall was a little bit off of the trail but we stopped here for a short rest before moving on with the hike. We we're fortunate to be able to stop beside such a beautiful site in nature!
A close-up view of what the columns look like at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco.
This is one of the first images that I captured on my trip to Glacier National Park (GNP). A Moraine Lake in front of a grand Mountain!
This is a photo coming down from Mt. Whitney. The iconic peaks piercing into the sky.
This was one of the last mountains that we climbed on our way out of the park. It was a good climb, if my memory serves me right it was 3 miles up and 3 miles down!
I captured this photo after an ice storm came through the Cleveland area. The storm provided some great picture opportunities that I was able to capture the following day!
This statue and others like it are found on the Hope Memorial Bridge, formerly called the Lorain-Carnegie Bridge. Here is more information about the Hope Memorial Bridge.
While on a business trip to Colorado shooting some video for a company near Centennial, I made a stop over to Denver and the Red Rock park to check out the beautiful and breath taking views!
While hiking the Kalalau trail I was able to take this photo Of Ke'e Beach, Hawaii. (Side note: The Kalalau trail was awesome and I highly recommend it to anyone to hike it!)
During a trip to Colorado (which was actually unrelated to nature photography) I made sure to plan for some extra time so I could make it to the Rocky Mountains and spend a few days camping there!
This photo has won 2 awards on Pixoto.com for being voted in the top 5% of the best photos during the day of June 29th, 2012 and was voted in the top 10% of the best photos during the week of June 24th, 2012. While on a trip to Hawaii I was able to capture this Pacific wave getting ready to crash upon the rock! This photo was taken along the Kalalau Trail at Hanakapiai beach.
I took this photo at Edgewater Park in Cleveland, Ohio. Near the shore of Lake Erie, this early autumn photo captures the beautiful park and sun rising to meet Cleveland this fine morning!
During a backpacking trip in Virginia, this was one of many rivers that we came across. I liked this one especially as the rocks and surrounding foilage provided a cool looking river in the middle of a dense forest.
