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.
This is a very grouchy Cowtail Stingray that I photographed in the Great Barrier Reef. They are quite large with meaty, thick bodies. They can reach nearly 6 feet wide, but this one had a 4 to 4.5 foot span. There were quite a few in the area where I took this photograph; you can see several in the background. I think they are really neat, but I had to be a bit careful getting too close because they would raise their tails and point their serrated spine forward at me. They are very cool animals, but not something that you want to accidently step on. When wading through the water, you feel like you are in a bit of a prehistoric minefield.
