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.

November 2012 Desktop Wallpaper – Blanca Peak, Colorado

November 2012 Desktop Wallpaper Blanca Peak Colorado

With fall winding down in Colorado, I’ve been making it a point to get a few more difficult mountains climbed before they’re covered with snow. Blanca Peak, a 14er in the Sangre de Cristo range, has been on my list for a while. This was shot the night before while camping in the valley below.

January 2012 Desktop Wallpaper – Behind Delicate Arch

January 2012 Desktop Wallpaper Utah Night

This past week I made a trip to shoot Delicate Arch, the popular photography location in eastern Utah. Having never been to this location when there are less than 50 tourists gathered around the feature, I knew that I would have to get creative if I wanted to come back to Colorado with something I was proud of. Thus, I didn’t shoot the arch at all. This photo was taken looking in the complete opposite direction of Delicate Arch. Sometimes at beautiful locations it pays to look behind you as well.

Death Valley (part one)

This past week I spent 5 days hiking and trekking through Death Valley National Park. Despite temperatures that ranged from the low 90s during the day and the low 20s at night, I had a great time seeing a part of the country that I had yet to experience. My favorite part of the park was the Racetrack Playa, a dry lake bed covered with sailing stones.

When the lake bed receives rains that cover just enough of the playa’s clay surface to make it slick, strong winds upwards of 90 mph push the rocks across the desert floor, leaving trails behind them. Some of the heavier rocks with rough bottoms leave a very deep trail that makes the Racetrack a photographer’s playground.
