Pleasanton, California

Another image from our short trip to rural Pleasanton in the fall of 2005. This hillside, despite being mostly brown grass provided a great setting for a few shots. The sun was out and there wasn’t a cloud in the late afternoon sky.

In this image, the cloudless sky offered a distraction free area to really capture Jenn with some good contrast. She’s facing west with the lowering sun fully lighting the front of her body and leaving nice, dark shadows behind. The whole image has a sort of radiance to it as Jenn appears to shine in the sunlight.

Novato, California

After a good Easter dinner with the family, I went out in the yard for some more night sky images. This time using my 50mm prime lens for the wider aperture and putting my plum tree at the bottom of the frame to have a grounding element.

The tree seems to be reaching for the stars as it stretches up past the light pollution lower in the sky and the longer shutter speed managed to capture a few shooting stars passing through the atmosphere.

Took this a while back when I was testing my manual lens and have been playing with the image for a while. I like the movement in the clouds that resulted from the longer exposure time. My first thought when starting the edit process of this was that it looked like passing spirits in the sky, and I continued that thought and theme when doing the various edits required to get this end result.

No pre-set filters, just some manual adjustments to exposure and hue in select areas. The cloud/tree was lit by street lights and I quite like the erie color.

Novato, California

A nice early spring blossoming of the plum trees here in Novato, CA. Its a very magical time of the year that lasts about a week when the numerous plum and cherry plum trees are filled with beautiful white and pinkish blossoms.

Today was the perfect day to get some shots of these spring time blossoms with a light cloud cover adding in some drama to the sky. Took this one in my back yard with my trusty (and heavy) manual AiS lens.

Kauai, Hawaii

A beautiful fall day on the island of Kauai. Light rain in the morning with the clouds giving way to the sun and blue skies by the early afternoon. One of the best things that I liked about Kauai was the ability to just drive to another part of the island if it was raining somewhere. Rarely could I not find some sun.

This image was taken during a zip-line adventure that Jenn and I took on our second day on the island. The tour was based in the northern part of the island and was great fun with stunning views and a great group of people.

Kauai, Hawaii

A spectacular view across the Waimea Canyon road out towards the small island of Ni’Ihau at sunset. A car coming down from the top of the canyon rim provided some nice fill light on the road and they waited patiently until I was done with the shot, and thus gave me the title “Lighting The Way”.

Not much has been done to this photo to bring out the colors in the sky. Some slight level and contrast adjustments, but thats about it.

Late autumn out at the Marin French Cheese Company’s duck pond. The fallen leaves from this tree have created a fairly undisturbed blanket on the grass below while the sky above is starting to show some life in preparation for the coming winter.
