Here are a couple of my favorite shots from Yosemite National Park this autumn.
On some of my recent travels I hiked at Mt. Whitney in California, the highest peak in the lower 48 states. Here are a few photographs I took on and around the Mt. Whitney Portal area. While I was hoping for some dramatic clouds (like in the ever-changing Colorado skies), the crisp blue skies were still stunning next to this incredible range.
Have you been to Big Sur? If not, please go. If you have, I’m sure you’re already planning another trip. Don’t miss Garrapata State Park, and be sure to do the Soberanes hike. Big Sur is unquestionably one of the most beautiful places on Earth. Mason Jenning’s “Califonia” and “Big Sur” are must-hear songs as you drive the winding coastal highway with the windows rolled down. Here are a few highlights from a recent journey along the ocean – I was especially enamored this trip with the Dr. Seuss trees and ethereal fog.
If you brave the traffic jams and noise of Los Angeles, you can still find hideaways like this – Schabarum Park. Flower fields and winding paths through the hills let you escape from the chaos of LA.
Wildfires to the west made for some incredible sunsets during our recent visit to Joshua Tree National Park.
Here are a few mountain shots from a recent hike in the Colorado Rockies. We started at Summit Lake near the peak of Mt. Evans and hiked over the Sawtooth Ridge that leads to Mt. Bierstadt.
Venice is one of my favorite places on earth to explore and get lost. Far from the swarms of people, you find cats bathing in the sun on cobblestone, laundry strung along the canals like a work of art, accordion players leaning on old church walls, lost in the music. Here are a few photos from my recent trip, along with a couple “oldies but goodies” from past travels in the floating city.
