I have lots to be grateful this thanksgiving. Mostly for my amazing family and friends, those who have served our country and being able to do what I love every single day. Thank you!

I usually try to keep people out of my shots. I don’t know why. It’s just some silly rule I came up with all on my own a while ago. So lately, I’ve been trying to see how they can add to my image. I love this because it shows how grand and large these trees are.

Best view of the sunset inside Zion National Park. This was taken right by the Zion Human History Museum on a bridge with tons of photographers lined up.


Fog Rising

You never know what you’re going to get unless you go out there and keep on going. At first, I just thought this was going to be another day at Great Falls Park. Then I saw the fog rising like steam from a pot and thought it looked like a dream.

Going through some older photos. Here’s one I never processed from Slide Rock State Park in Arizona. I had a great time in Sedona and hope to go again someday.


Spring Time Cherry Blossoms

Just a little warmth for the coldest day of the year so far…


Fast Moving Clouds at the Washington Monument

Got this amazing view one evening at the Capitol. I had been there so many times, I was frantic trying to find a different view. That’s when I told myself that I had to stop, take a moment to breathe and something cool will come. I set my camera for a slow shutter speed and got these cool fast moving clouds looking as if they were ready to storm.


Sun on the Capitol

I don’t know if I’ve ever seen the Capitol like this. The sun was setting and casting this beautiful light on to the Capitol. Love it!


Arlington National Cemetery in the Autumn Time

Another image from Arlington National Cemetery. So glad I was able to take capture this historic place with so many colorful trees. It’s always been on my list to photograph at this time of year, but it never happened.
