I was processing this image and thought that it would look better in black and white. What do you think? There were some color in the sky, but…. I dunno.

Just some test shots for future visits to the National Shrine. I’ve never been there before, but I was very impressed by the architecture and grandness of the shrine.

I guess all the other people in this image are from the east coast too. It’s so hard to get used to the time zone in Hawaii since it’s 6 hours behind. But makes it easy to get up to watch the sunrise.

Can’t wait to go back. No plans yet, but would love to go soon :)


Before the Rain

Before we got all this crazy rain from the weekend, I got up Friday morning to watch the sunrise. The storm clouds brought beautiful color.


Cherry Blossoms are Coming!

Well, at least according to the National Park Service. It really doesn’t feel like it. Especially since it snowed in DC earlier this week. I’ll keep an eye out and keep you all posted :)

Beautiful day in Sedona, Arizona. I love the clouds that are hovering over the rock formations. It created great light to highlight the rocks and makes the sky look extra blue.

Growing up in the DC area, the National Gallery of Art has always been one of my favorites. Is it still art when you’re photographing someone else’s work?

I was lucky to spend a beautiful weekend in Maryland. It was just a personal weekend with me and my husband to spend some time together. As we were driving, we noticed the light rays coming from the clouds. Luckily, we were close to Sandy Point State Park so we pulled over. Unfortunately, the rays died down a little.

An unusually foggy morning in front of the Capitol. I was running late for sunrise. Good thing the fog covered the sun long enough to get a few shots in.
