On and off the road

Just before New Year, I took a road trip to Arizona with a few friends. I’ve already shown you what the official center of the world looks like, and you’ve seen my visit to the amazing Taliesin West, but one of the best things about road trips is all the random things you spot along the way! From amazing skies to miniature dinosaurs, you just never know what you find at roadside stops.

The best sunsets happen after the sun sets

Did you ever notice that when crowds gather to watch a sun set, most people leave immediately after the sun is below the horizon? And did you ever notice that there are always a few folks with cameras lingering around a bit longer? That’s because all those amazing colors in the sky happen AFTER the sun is below the horizon. Not convinced?

I went to Lake Miramar recently to go shoot some nature just for fun. Sure, I got shots while the sun was out. The ones I got after the sunset, though, are my absolute favorite! See for yourself…

Wandering the coast

A recent visit to Laguna Beach started with grey and overcast skies, but ended with an amazing light show in the sky!
Note the progression of sunset photos… This, my friends, is why you wait until immediately AFTER the sunset for the best colors in the sky ;)

 

Enjoy!

Open space and ocean views

Another day, another beautiful home I get to photograph :)

What stood out to me about this home was not that the architecture was lovely and the location was amazing, but that the positive vibe of the homeowners could be felt throughout. You could tell it was a happy home!

When nature talks, you listen.

It all started with a vision… of a girl searching through tall grassy fields, or emerging from the water, in the black of night. This session had a mind of its own though.

When nature talks, you listen.

The setting sun on the landscape was begging for us to use its light. We got some night shots, too, but they don’t fully bring to life the vision in my mind. The sunset shots, though… magical.

A Day in the Desert – Part II

Yes, I know… It’s been almost 3 months since this trip actually took place and about 2 months since I posted the first part of my recap. yikes! To say I’ve been busy wouldn’t begin to describe the past couple of months, but I was so happy with these photos that I didn’t care how much time passed. I just HAD to share them!

So here you go. The remainder of my photos from a day trip to Salvation Mountain, Slab City, and its surroundings. Enjoy! :)

xoxo
