Amalfi Simplicity

The Amalfi Coast of Italy is a wash of pastel colors. My 10 year old grabbed this simple seed to make a wish. I hope it was to return there once again.

Untitled

Marina del Rey, California on March 9, 2013 just before sunset. Seldom that Los Angeles sets up with a dramatic dark sky. About an hour before sunset, the sky to the west was looking clear setting up the potential for a great shot to the east. I drove down to the Marina looking for the perfect foreground and was rewarded with the rainbow framing Fisherman's Village in the last few minutes of sunlight with my office building to the far left reflecting the sun back onto the water. I have lived in the Marina or nearby for over 25 years and it was one of the most beautiful evenings there I ever saw.

20 Mule Team in Death Valley - Pano

Likely the last time the Borax 20 Mule Team will ever be in Death Valley and only the second time in sixty years. The photo here shows them in front of the Harmony Borax Works that made them famous. Later they became an American marketing icon made famous on radio and TV in "Death Valley Days" that ran through the 50's and were hosted by among others future President Ronald Reagan.

Last Flight

"Endeavour" approx. 3 seconds before landing on LAX runway 25R - it's last few moments of flight.

Godspeed Neil Armstrong

Taken on the night of the blue moon August 31, 2012. On this night Neil Armstrong - first man to set foot on the moon - was laid to rest. His family asked that we all wink at the moon in his honor. I did.

Arc de Triomphe

I first shot this on film in 1993. You have to be a bit daring to move up a bit from the taffic light and stand between the cars goong in opposite directions!

Krka - Jumper

The Skradinski Buk in Krka National Park, Croatia is simply one of the most magnificent locations for waterfalls in the world. There are endless falls and travertine terraces. And, if you choose, in the summertime there is fantastic swimming below the falls in warm water that is enjoyed by hundreds. Nearest to Split, it is about an hour drive from the port city by rental car and easily navigated with Google Maps. Truly one of the most incredibly beautiful and unusual places I have ever visited. By sheer chance, at one of the overlooks to the main falls, I caught this person who had somehow crawled out onto the falls and then jumped over the precipice - much to the displeasure of the waiting lifeguard below! I love that his shadow is visible below him as he jumps.

Amazing Pups

Thanks to Los Angeles World Airports for giving me access to secured areas to see the litter this past May. They are amzing in that they live where one would never expect them - right under the airplanes at LAX!

Venice Opera

The Gran Teatro la Fenice first located here in Venice Italy in 1789. Amazingly the ornate structure you see is a complete recreation of the original which tragically burned by arson in 1996 and was reopened in 2003.

Eagle Eye

Reach for the Sky

Newborn Child

Sadly this nest is gone - the victim (I believe) of endless attack by Ospreys causing the Bald Eagles that had nested here for a few years to move on and abandon the nest. (The chick in grey is at the feet of the right hand eagle.)

Wild Mustangs #4

Apparition - Wild Mustangs #3

I'll never forget the look in the eye of the leader of the pack as he looked back over his shoulder at me before dissapearing over the ridge. It was like he was an apparition from another time. Truly magnificent.
