October, 2012  |  Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

I arrived at this fantastic spot at Oxbow Bend well before sunrise
around 5.50am. Judging by the clouds a decent sunrise was expected. The
beautiful fall colors already set the scene in the surrounding
environment, but this time my goal was to capture something else: a
beautiful reflection...

Winter Calm - Yosemite, CA
Feb, 2013  |  Yosemite National Park, CA

First protected in 1864, Yosemite became a World Heritage Site in 1984. And for a good reason.

Dec 15, 2018  |  Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Some places in this world have very unique and well recognizable rock formations. Cabo San Lucas is one of them.

Fire Sky - Half Moon Bay, CA
Nov 7, 2011  |  Half Moon Bay, CA

I dont measure the good days in life by good sunsets and sunrises, but some of them burn into my memory forever. Our trip with family to Half Moon Bay was great on its own. However on the way back to San Francisco the cloud formations suggested that the weather conditions were ideal for the rare sunset when the layered clouds would reflect back the last rays of the sun...
