Lost Coast Moonrise

Lost Coast Moonrise

Watching the moon rise over the Lost Coast and Shelter Cove after the smoke had finally lifted. My favorite thing about this shot is that it's real. I snuck up behind these two without them knowing it, and they were still enough for it to work because it was such a perfect night, the only thing to do was to sit back and take it all in.

Alabama Hills Lightning

Alabama Hills Lightning

The Alabama Hills sit near the bottom of one of the deepest and steepest valleys in the US. To the west, Mount Whitney and the Sierra Nevada tower more than 14,000 feet above sea level. Eastward, the Inyo Mountains rise nearly as high. I shot this photo during a moonless, pitch-black night as lightning storms flickered on the far side of both ranges. The lightning was far away -- so distant there was no thunder, but the Owens Valley still lit up with each flash. What a show! There is magic in these hills. Available for licensing.

Camp at Last Light

Camp at Last Light

One of my favorite moments from a backpacking trip with my dad and my pup. Here is our camp at last light, with the night's first stars beginning to twinkle, and the rush of snowmelt singing us to sleep.

Camp in The Hills

Camp in The Hills

The Alabama Hills are one of my favorite places to pitch a tent. There's nothing like making a cozy, little camp tucked up against the gnarly rock formations. It's a great spot to sit by the fire, crack open a beer and watch the stars come out. Available for licensing.

Heart of an Angel

Heart of an Angel

Here in California, stargazers enjoy clear, pitch-black skies that come to life, especially around the time of the new moon. To spend a night beneath them is a privilege. A third of the world and a whopping 80 percent of Americans can't see the Milky Way due to light pollution. What a shame. To think of the things people are missing! Like this, the heart of an angel. Do you see it?. Available for licensing.

Too Many Stars To Fathom

Too Many Stars To Fathom

This is a 63-second exposure that I shot at Red Rock Canyon State Park in December, when only the outermost part of the Milky Way is visible here in California. Like all my photos, it's a single image. I never use HDR or Photoshop because when photographing nature, I like to keep things as natural as possible. This image is profound to me, because it shows what we often struggle to see with our eyes alone, and that is that there is far more light than darkness -- even in the blackest skies over the most remote deserts.
