As I was traveling in Hawaii, I stopped by the Pearl Harbor Museum. While there, I toured the USS Bowfin. The Bowfin was direct response to the attack on Pearl Harbor which is eveident from it's name "Pearl Harbor Avenger" Here is a note that written to "All Hands..." http://www.navy.mil/navydata/cno/n87/usw/issue_33/bowfin.html
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 including this tree branch coated in ice!
I took this photo from Edgewater Park in Cleveland, Ohio. Near the shore of Lake Erie this time lapse photograph reveals a majestic and beautiful sky over the Cleveland Skyline!
This is the view of the biggest of the "Golden Lakes" at the campground. It was a beautiful view with a beautiful sunset!
When I was traveling to California I made it a point travel along the gorgeous 17 Mile Drive near Carmel by the Sea. There were many attractions on the drive including otters, sea lions and of course the infamous Lonely Cypress Tree
This black & white picture is of "Bear Mountain" located in the beautiful Glacier National Park. Captured with a weather system moving in allowed this image to include clouds beginning to engulf the mountain.
On our way to the Indian Bar campsite we crossed over the Panhandle Gap. On our way we were able to see some great views of Mount Adams.
I have some good friends down in Virginia and this very cool dock is right in their backyard! It's the perfect getaway in warm weather to sit, relax, read, smoke a cigar, have a drink, you get the idea...
A photo of the Cleveland Skyline. From left to right the 4 tallest buildings are The Key Tower, The BP-Huntington Building, The Terminal Tower and the Federal Courthouse.
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 including these tree branches coated in ice on the backdrop of a beautiful blue sky!
On our way out of the Paradise River Campground and en route to the Longmire Trailhead we were able to see the sunrise on Mount Rainier at Reflection Lakes!
A photo of the Golden Gate Bridge in California overlooking the San Francisco Bay.
When I was traveling to Monterey, California I spent a lot of time just walking around the city, Pacific Grove and the sand dunes in the area. Here is a shot of a beautiful, golden sunset in Pacific Grove! I was lucky enough to capture a plane flying overhead and a flock of birds at the same time in this shot!
The most famous waterfall in Yosemite National Park. This image was captured near the start of the John Muir Trail at the Happy Isle Nature Center in Yosemite Valley.
While on a trip to Hawaii I was able to capture this unique Hawaiian sunset! I decided to use a longer speed to show the motion of the clouds. I think it turned out pretty well!
As I was hiking a segment of the Appalachian Trail we ended at Unicoi Gap. It was a hard trek for me as it was one of my first week long backpacking trips so making it to the "finish line" was a welcome sight!
This mother bird and two of her nestlings decided to take up residence in a small tree directly outside my window! Their choice of residency availed itself to some great photographic opportunities without the birds flying away. That mother bird has some real courage! I was only a couple feet away from her with the camera and she wouldn't even budge - she was busy protecting her babies!
When I was traveling in California, visiting a few friends, we made sure that went down to see Big Sur. On the way we crossed the infamous and iconic Bixby Creek Bridge!
One chilly, wintery morning I was crazy enough, stupid enough or genius enough*?-?-?* to go out into the blustery cold and take this photo of the beautiful and magnificent sunrise over Cleveland, Ohio! To be honest, it actually wasn't that cold this particular morning. It was probably in the 40s. And it wasn't even that early. I think the sunrise was at 7:45am. That's early, but not, "crazy early." At least in my estimation. It was the 3rd day in a row where it was in the 40s and 50s so I was a little nervous about the ice breaking, but I'm here typing this so don't worry, I didn't die. Thank you for your concern.
While on a trip up to Big Bass Lake, Michigan spending time with friends, fishing, having bonfires and what not, I was able to take this beautiful sunrise photo! I really love how the pier and boats were so still in the water.
