Back in the UK!

We have been photographing in the UK now for a few days. Everything has been wonderful except on the boat ride back from one of the islands that we are photographing at we got caught in a hail and thunderstorm. The seas were rocky and I nearly lost my lunch! Other than that it has …

Charleston

Boneyard Beach

During my return trip to Charleston this spring I stopped several times at Botany Bay to photograph the “boneyard” of dead trees in the water. Because I was trying to cram so much into my short trip I was not able to get out to this location at my desired time. However on my last …

Amsterdam

Street Scene

Palouse

Dijon Mustard Field, Palouse Region

This image is an in-camera blur created in the Palouse. I used a slow shutter speed and low ISO to capture this dijon mustard field. This is one of my favorites from the day but I have to admit I had quite a few keepers that day Canon EOS 5D Mark III Shutter speed: 1/6 …

Tungsten

While photographing at Steptoe Butte in the very early morning, it is fun to capture images that show multiple layers of the distant hills.
