The total solar eclipse of 2017 covered a large swath of the USA. Witnessing the event in Central Oregon was one of the truly great moments of my life
A full moon rises at sunset through the ancient scraggly trees high on an exposed Montana ridge
An incredible landscape in the Eastern Sierras discovered and championed by my mentor Ryan Dyar.
I managed to make this shot before being run out of the canyon by a moose-sized porcupine in South Dakota.
A twilight twist on a classic Oregon scene. Ryan Buchanan found this wonderful composition, and we waited until darkness fell and the crowds had all left to enjoy the peaceful beauty of this magical place
Twilight over Mt. Rainier in a beautiful field of flowers. Shortly after shooting this we returned to our campsite to find a very disturbed mouse running in dizzying circles. Much discussion ensued regarding whether mice can have rabies. The debate rages to this day amongst my small group of friends
The title is to remind me of the hellish night I spent in the Eastern Sierras of California. Since I couldn't sleep with the vicious wind, I figured I might as well get up and do some astrophotography
Once a year, the keepers of the Pigeon Point Lighthouse in California would replace the modern light with the old fresnel lens and stop it's rotation for 5 minutes. Photographers would have to work very hard to find the correct settings and try to get one or two long exposure images before the light started to turn again. Sadly, due to lack of funding this event was cancelled several years ago
A wonderful evening under the stars with great friends at Mt. St. Helens in Washington during a peak wildflower bloom
An intense display of the aurora borealis on a frigid night in the Norwegian wilderness. With fast moving aurora, it always feels like there should be noise associated with it, but it is eerily still
The oldest trees on earth are the ancient Bristlecones of California. Their appearance tells the story of a difficult life lived
A very long exposure during twilight shows fascinating foam patterns in eastern Washington
A stunning cove on the Southern Oregon Coast photographed in the fading light of twilight. The overlook from which this image was taken is uncomfortably steep and drops straight into the ocean
A lone car winds through the Alabama Hills in California as the moon bows to the rising sun
Shortly after finishing up my image "Frozen Feet" I turned around to hike out of the creek and saw this scene. The light was too nice to pass up, and I figured my feet were already frozen anyway...
As a pilot, I'm never happy to be delayed. But it worked to my advantage on this night out shooting with friend David Thompson. Our inbound plane was 2 hours late, which allowed me to stay on location until the Milky Way lined up with this wild sandstone formation
A lonely sea stack gets battered by the Pacific along the Washington coast. Sadly, this monolith has since toppled
The last days of ice along this lake in Mt. Rainier National Park before the spring thaw changes the view
The large telescopes at the Mauna Kea observatory on Hawaii peer deep into space looking for the origins of the universe
