New Work – October 2012

I’ve been remiss about publishing my new photography and have only released two groups of images on my website in 2012. Tracy and I are about to head off for some R&R in Paris and I figured I should publish a blog post about my new photographs before we leave. (Who knows, if the food is really good we may not return.) As in May, my October collection of images includes many night photographs including some really nice ones from Arches and Canyonlands National Parks in Utah, Yosemite and Joshua Tree National Park. This year I made one good blue whale photo and participated in my first aerial mission for Lighthawk, documenting development in the desert east of San Diego. A few new images of San Diego are mixed in this release. And perhaps the most fun of all: new wave photos! Below are a few from the release but you’ll want to see all of them so please have a look: New Work – October 2012. Cheers!
