  • "Sacred Mountains"

    This photo was taken at 10,023 feet (3,055 meters) at the summit of Haleakala on Maui. Out in the distance in the middle, you can see Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea on Big Island. This shot is made from 8-10 shots stitched together. The native resolution is roughly 45 inches (114.3 cm) width by 15" inches (38.1 cm) height, so very large prints would look great!

  • "Forest Rivers"

    Location: Mount Rainier

  • Solitude

    It's always nice to have a beach all to yourself for a few hours in the morning.

  • "Spring Forward Full Moon"

    Photo taken on 3/12/2017 which is the day most of the country lost an hour of sleep. I'm glad it's not observed here in Hawaii =)

  • "The Sunset After The Storm"

    It's been raining and storming the last couple of days in Maui. But at sunset last night there was a break in the clouds.

  • Napili Bay Sunset

    I started a little late in the day yesterday to explore west and north Maui, but I wanted to make sure I got to Napili Bay by sunset. With tons of low clouds, it didn’t look the sun would make an appearance, but it showed up just for a couple minutes, before it hid behind the clouds again.

  • Gold Water

    I figured the Super Bowl game was pretty much in the bag for the Falcons at the half as they were up 21 - 3. So I planned to go shoot the sunset by the 3rd or 4th quarter, because I saw some amazing clouds during the day above the horizon. What a comeback! I had to stay and watch until the end and glad I did, instead of leaving early. What a game! As soon as the Patriots scored the touchdown in OT, I left for the beach ASAP. Most of those clouds I saw earlier in the day were blown out to sea by sunset, but I’m glad I was able to get to the beach before sundown.

  • Santa Cruz Sunset

    Not long after upgrading my camera gear to pro gear, I took a drive down Highway One to Santa Cruz to shoot at the beach. I just went through those photos and edited this one. I was nowhere near where I am now, as far as knowing camera settings and other technical stuff. So after going through the photos now, I had quite a few "What was I thinking with those settings?" thoughts. Mostly laughing at myself =) I have a long way to go when it comes to learning about photography, composition, lighting, settings, editing, etc., but it's also nice to see the progress in the last year or so.

  • Orion Nubula

    I went up to Haleakala yesterday to take sunset photos(see previous post). I also brought my Explore Scientific 127mm carbon fiber triplet refractor telescope and my Celestron CGEM mount. It was pretty cold and a little windy, but the sky was perfectly clear! I was a little disappointed, since the tripod/CGEM mount alignment was a bit off (user error), which meant the tracking was also off. What that translates to is that I couldn’t take any photos through the telescope (star trails). I finally got the Orion Nebula (also known as Messier 42, M42, or NGC 1976) into view and focused. I decided to take a chance and take some photos of it. To my surprise the tracking wasn’t that bad. I couldn’t take minutes long photos of M42, but I was able to get some 10 and 20 second shots. This is a single 20 second shot.

  • Haleakala Moonset

    The colors of Haleakala never disappoint. Whether you go up for for the famous sunrise or not so populated sunset, they are an equally amazing experience. I shot this photo of the moon above the clouds a few minutes after the sun went down. The sun was way too bright when it was above the clouds to see the moon, so when the moon made a sudden appearance, I had to get a shot.

  • Black Sand Beach

    Waiʻanapanapa State Park

  • Road to the Watchman

    At the top of Watchman Peak in the center is the Watchman Observation Station. From National Park Services: "The Watchman Observation Station and Watchman Trail are located on the summit of Watchman Peak. The observation station was designed and constructed as part of the 1920s Crater Lake Master Plan to serve as an interpretive/educational center and as a fire lookout."

  • Christine Falls

    Location: Mount Rainier, Washington

  • Purple Vog

    Vog is a form of air pollution that results when sulfur dioxide and other gases and particles emitted by an erupting volcano react with oxygen and moisture in the presence of sunlight. It's blended from the words volcanic, smog and fog.

  • The Sun Worshiper

    Location: Maui, Hawaii

  • Full Moon

    Location: Earth
