Mill Creek Heat
Description
It was 105 degrees out the day I shot this which is not unusual for summer in the Inland Empire. The good thing is the heat produced some nice clouds to break up the usual clear blue skies. So I went up hwy 38 to Forest Falls to shoot Mill Creek again.

Coast of Spirits
Description
Shot at Sunset Cliffs National Park in San Diego, CA. This was my first visit to Sunset Cliffs NP and I had a hard time finding good comps. For one thing there were so many people there that it was almost impossible to get a shot without someone walking into your frame. So I used their ghostly figures to add to the mood of the shot.

Last Light at Crystal Cove
Description
Taken Apr 30th 2008 at the far north end of Crystal Cove State Park, CA. I kind of like this one because it's a retake from a previous (failed) visit. I got the foreground rocks the way I wanted and the weather was cooperative. I did not want a clear blue sky and was pleased with these conditions.
