Alpine Forest

Alpine Forest

I'm not certain whether these are birch or aspen, but there were huge stand of them at 9000 feet by Kolob Reservoir. I love the white and green contrast


Alpine Lake

Alpine Lake

This lake was at nearly 8500' and was in the shadow of Lassen Peak.


Arizona Sunrise

Arizona Sunrise

This was taken at an small school looking over the town of Nogales.


Arizona Thunderstorm

Arizona Thunderstorm

Who have though a desert would have such a huge thunderstorm rolling through.


Big Cypress Swamp

Big Cypress Swamp

Located near Everglades NP, this swamp was home to hundreds of birds and alligators, not to mention beautiful, large Cypress trees.


Black Mesa Canyon

Black Mesa Canyon

The geography of this place seems more that of the mountains than that of Oklahoma. It was around New Years and there was still quite a bit of snow on the ground.

Bryce Canyon Sunset

Bryce Canyon Sunset

Taken at sunset at Bryce Canyon National Park. Wanted to take this shot in this park for about as long as I can remember. :-D

CB Sunset

CB Sunset

This was taken at sunset at Cheyenne Bottoms. The birds on the water are American Avocets.


Cornell Waterfall

Cornell Waterfall

This is my first attempt at shutter speed and F-stop manipulation. Lucky for me the waterfall was flowing particularly strongly that day.


Cracked Earth

Cracked Earth

The soil composition at Cheyenne Bottoms caused it to crack in a really cool way in the 100+° heat.


Deep Blue

Deep Blue

Many of the hot springs in Yellowstone have amazing color, but this one was exceptional.

Desert Arroyo (Nogales, AZ)

Desert Arroyo (Nogales, AZ)

This was taken in the early morning as the sun rose, illuminating this arroyo as we looked for the special birds of Arizona.

Everwhite

Everwhite

Taken in winter at Mammoth Hot Springs in Yellowstone, this is a photo of the slow mineralization of a pine branch in a hot spring. The last remaining twigs have yet to be submerged, and have collected droplets of water from the steam of the hot spring


Fall in Ithaca

Fall in Ithaca

The autumn colors of upstate New York are hard to top.


Flaming Gorge 1

Flaming Gorge 1

It had been at least 13 years since I had last been to Flaming Gorge when I took this picture while driving through on my way to California.


Flaming Gorge 2

Flaming Gorge 2

This is my second shot of Flaming Gorge in Winter.


Geyser River

Geyser River

Not sure which river this is, though it might be a tributary of the Firehole. The geyser in the photo didn't have a name I could find, though there probably was one.


Half Dome

Half Dome

This is a view of Half Dome taken over the Merced River.


Hoodoos

Hoodoos

These amazing rock formations were scattered in huge numbers throughout Bryce Canyon


Horsetail Falls 'Firefall'

Horsetail Falls 'Firefall'

This is a fascinating phenomenon in which the light of the setting sun hits Horsetail Fall. For more info about it, read my blog post.


Hot Spring Reflection

Hot Spring Reflection

The colors of this spring were very odd to begin with; lots of bacteria, but the reflection made them even stranger.


Jetty Sunset

Jetty Sunset

I have never been colder than when I took this photo of the sunset at Two Harbors, Minnesota.


Joshua Tree Sunset

Joshua Tree Sunset

This was taken I believe somewhere near Joshua Tree National Monument, it was about 1 hour west of Las Vegas, NV


Kestone Lake Sunset

Kestone Lake Sunset

This was shot at twilight at Keystone Lake, outside of Tulsa


Lassen Peak

Lassen Peak

This is the same lake as 'Alpine Lake', I believe the boulders were part of a glacial moraine that had piled them up over the years. The lake the almost certainly glacial and probably very deep. I like the shadows on the mountain. Even though it was August, there was snow everywhere


Lassen Peak 1

Lassen Peak 1

I like the composition of this one a bit better


Lassen Peak 2

Lassen Peak 2

This was actually taken during late evening, but was shot with a really high aperture. The mountain is Mt. Lassen.


Life and Death

Life and Death

This is a photo of a singing Red-winged Lark perched on top of a Hippo skull. I like this photo because it seems the essence of the circle of life.


Little Pyramids

Little Pyramids

This rock formation, along with several others, is located in Logan Co., KS. The terrain there is very atypical for Kansas in general.


Merced River

Merced River

This shot was taken at the banks of the Merced River in Yosemite National Park.


Mescaleros Sand Dunes

Mescaleros Sand Dunes

We camped on top of a dune at Mescalero Sand Dunes and watched lightning storms roll in on all sides of us. That night we were treated to 360° lightning storms, like the eye of a hurricane.


Misty Marsh (Linn Co, KS)

Misty Marsh (Linn Co, KS)

This was taken near Wolf Creek Nuclear Power Plant in Linn County. I've seldom seen anything as foggy as it was this morning, and it made for some great shooting (photographically speaking that is)


Montano de Oro

Montano de Oro

Further north around San Francisco it is almost always foggy at the beach, so it was quite a pleasant surprise when I went to this state park and it was so sunny.


Moon

Moon

This photo was taken when the Moon was one day from full.


Morning in the Mountains

Morning in the Mountains

Sunrise illuminated the plants nicely in this shot


Pebble Beach

Pebble Beach

This beach in Half Moon Bay is characterized by tiny pebbles and moonstones.


Pine Woods

Pine Woods

I liked the way the trees seemed to stretch away to infinity in this shot.


Redwood Light 1

Redwood Light 1

This was shot early in the morning while the fog in the redwoods was still thick. The sun streamed into the fog creating this effect.


Redwood Light 2

Redwood Light 2

More of a nimbus effect in this photo


Redwood Road

Redwood Road

I liked the way the light filtered down to illuminate this lonely stretch of road.


Rhododendron in the Mist

Rhododendron in the Mist

This was shot in the early morning. The tree in the center is a Rhododendron, if only it had been in bloom!


Rippling Waters

Rippling Waters

This was one of my favorite shots of the trip. I like how the water ripples near the edges.


Salt Wash Valley 1

Salt Wash Valley 1

This was taken at a rest stop on I-70 in central Utah, somewhere between Zion and Capitol Reef NP's
