April 2014 Desktop Wallpaper

Big Sur has the popularity, but it never fails that when I set out to leave the Bay Area with no destination in mind, I always seem to head north. The coastline is more rugged and the coffee tastes better. And, these sunsets aren’t bad to experience either. This day, I set out to photograph another selfie and after setting up in the location I had mapped out, discovered that I had forgotten my tripod at home. No matter, though. After a bit of craftiness with a rock and a Joby, I soon had a tripod that would make MacGyver proud.

March 2014 Desktop Wallpaper – Mount Shasta

Mount Shasta glows under the moonlight on the northern California countryside. This shot was taken last year on a quick weekend trip up the state. It was my first time experiencing the enormity of Mount Shasta, and I hope to return to climb to it’s summit one day this fall. The best part of photographing near this old barn were the horses galloping in the dark. You can see one just to the left of the barn in the photo. In the pitch dark, the herd was difficult to see so you could always hear their hoofs pounding before actually getting a visual.

February 2014 Desktop Wallpaper – Lost Coast

I couldn’t be more stoked to have been named the winner of the #mydistantshore Instagram contest held by Chris Burkard. Chris has one of the best surfing photo portfolios around, so it’s a huge honor to be selected from all of the excellent submissions. My February calendar features the winning self-portrait taken at the beginning of January in Shelter Cove, California.

The combination of a foggy day with the black sand beach and white surf made for some great natural contrast, but the little editing I did do started with the Sleet preset found in my black and white preset pack for Lightroom.
