Cali Coastline

Wandering along the Cali coastline, from San Diego to San Francisco, with a few slipped in from a venture in Oregon.

Perfect morning to catch some waves, Ecola State Park, Oregon

Cormorants roosting for the evening, La Jolla

In for the night, La Jolla Cove

Couldn’t decide which version of this image I liked better, the orange glow of sodium streetlamps or the more neutral feel of my speed light.  La Jolla Cove

Patterns in the sand, San Diego

Ocean fog rolling in, Southern Oregon

Misty morning at Ecola State Park, Oregon

A good night’s rest


Coyote Butte & the Vermillion Cliffs

The infamous Horseshoe Bend near Page, Az.  Thanks to whoever the adventurous kayaker was giving me the nice campfire light to illuminate the canyon from within.  
This is by far one of the most surreal and serene landscapes I’ve ever encountered.  Called the Wave for obvious reasons, its hidden in the Coyote Butte wilderness area, a decent 7 mile hike through a hot desert.  The best part about it, the BLM is super tight on permits, so only 10 groups are allowed a day, so you get this fantastic alien landscape almost entirely to yourself, I started hiking at sunrise and returned just after sundown, and only encountered 3 people all day.  If you’re ever in northern Az, put this place on your short list!

10,000′ Up to 200′ Below – White Mountains to Death Valley

 At 10,000 feet up in the White mountains, high above the tree line, these ancient bristlecone pines have been documented to live up 5,000+ years, making them the world’s oldest living organism.   
 After running around through the Inyo forest for awhile, I headed down into the Eureka Valley, 
to visit the tallest sand dunes in the US, looming 700 ft over the dry lake they inhabit.
 The Racetrack Playa in Death Valley, unfortunately, the strange phenomena that occurs here with the sailing stones is nearly at an end due to assholes stealing souvenirs.
A long road home….

Gone but Not Forgotten Part 1

I just launched a brand new website (, and have streamlined the portfolios and added an archive section to catalog my travels over the years.  But in the editing process, I’ve had to cut a ton of images, so instead of them just sitting dormant on my hard drive never to be heard from again, thought I’d put up a couple posts so that they might find a home

Roadtrippin’ USA – Part 1 of ??

I recently headed home for the holidays, and as I’ve always loved a good road trip, packed up the car with my buddy Wes and headed east for Pennsylvania.  I’ve since travelled 11,000 miles and taken 2 months on the road and already made the journey home, but I’ve been bad about blogging.  The first few images I’ve posted below, but will have much more soon to follow as soon as I develop my film.  Stay tuned!
