Finding Beauty in Death
An 8 minute exposure of the dead trees on the shore of Longboat Key, Florida. It is curious to think that even these lifeless trees add a certain beauty to the surrounding.

A twelve minute exposure to capture the star trails. Two minutes and forty five seconds of trying to stand as still as I could!

Alone with the Stars

When I was driving back from Jacksonville to Orlando, I decided to drop by Marineland Beach which was between St. Augustine and Flagler in order to take star photos. The sound of the waves crashing on the shore at night when you are all alone seemed very eerie.

El Capitan at Night
I felt like re-processing old shots of the trip to Yosemite. This is a vertical stitch of three photos. The tiny speck of light on the rock wall is a mountain climber. Each photo was taken at 60 seconds, f/3.5, ISO 800.
