This is a cute little tide pool crab that I photographed along the California coast. I’m not sure what type of crab it is, but they seem to have a wide range of slight shell pattern and color variations. This one is very small. The whole crab is about the size of your fingernail. They are really shy when you first come to a tidepool, but after a while they come out into the shallow water and are actually curious if you sit still for a while.
This is a long exposure photograph that I took of waves breaking on the rocky California coast. I like how rocky the Pacific coast is. It gives the coast a really interesting personality.
I really like the temperate rain forests of Washington state. They are so green. It’s interesting how quiet they can be.
It’s amazing how big whales are when you see them up close. I took this photograph of a humpback whale off the coast of California. They are really impressive animals.
I’m always impressed by the waterfalls in Hawaii. The huge vertical drops down lush forested cliffs are pretty spectacular.
The Canadian Inside Passage is a really beautiful place. The peaks are covered in wispy clouds, the island banks are covered in lush forests, and whales are easily spotted breaching in the fjords.
A playful dolphin zipping through clear water alongside our dive boat off of the west coast of Kauai, Hawaii. It’s amazing how freely they move through the water.
California has such beautiful golden evening light. It is one of the things that I will always remember fondly about California.
