Laguna Beach, California Sunset Photos

I’ve become a beach bum. If you know me, you might be surprised to read that statement, as I have been like the living embodiment of Cartman when it comes to the hippie lifestyle (don’t let them fool you: beach bums are a subset of the hippie movement). However, unlike your typical beach bum who […]

Journey 2: The Mysterious Mountain

After racing back up to the car at Spirit Lake, we had a dilemma concerning where to go for sunset. The sky was already mighty good where we were, so we could just stay in the area for what would likely be a safe bet, plus some good late afternoon light. …Or, we could race […]

The Trek to Spirit Falls in Columbia River Gorge

A lot of our locations on our Columbia River Gorge trip were uncommon spots that were off the beaten trail, and that we only had a rough idea of how to find. In most cases, these spots were off the beaten trail because there was really no way to make an easily-accessible trail to them. […]

Loki Rains Down Blows Upon Stupid Photographers

Arriving in Portland after an early morning flight from Orlando for a photography trip at the Columbia River Gorge with Bill, Ryan, Don, and Jeff, we decided it would be a good idea to drive out to the Pacific Coast to shoot Thor’s Well. We had some intel on the location that suggested it was […]

California Beaches: Laguna’s Table Rock Beach

This post features some photos I took at Table Rock Beach in Laguna Beach, California, along with some tips for finding this beach, and my thoughts on it. Table Rock Beach is a pretty popular spot in Laguna Beach, especially among locals for cliff jumping. A lot of people love this beach, but I’ll admit […]

Aliens Playing Under the Full Moon at Death Valley’s Racetrack Playa?

Are there extraterrestrials living among us on earth? What do they do? These are the type of questions humans have debated for ages, and after a weekend at Death Valley National Park, I believe I am ready to solve them. Speculate no more, as aliens are playful creatures who, it turns out, live in the […]

Death Valley National Park Trip Report – Part 2

Picking up from where we left off in Part 1 of my Death Valley National Park Trip Report, this photo above is probably not what you’d expect to see in Death Valley. The Inn at Furnace Creek would be an anomaly in any National Park, but it’s the ultimate contrast in Death Valley. The land […]

Death Valley National Park Trip Report – Part 1

This trip report cover my recent overnight trip to Death Valley National Park, which included stops at the Mesquite Dunes, Furnace Creek, Badwater Basin, and other places around Death Valley National Park in California. I almost didn’t do a trip report on this visit to Death Valley, as I missed a lot of key experiences […]

Pacific Coast Highway Trip Report – Part 2

Part 1 of my Pacific Coast Highway Trip Report left off with a nail-biting shootout with a squad of FBI agents, and left readers wondering whether our heroes would escape in a blaze of glory. Okay, that’s not quite what happened, but on our way up from Shark Fin Cove, we were stopped by two […]

Pacific Coast Highway Trip Report – Part 1

Calling this a Pacific Coast Highway Trip Report is sort of a misnomer. Although we started in Orange County, California and headed north on PCH to north of Big Sur, we also veered off to head to Yosemite following our adventures on the coast. In any case, I thought it’d be fun to share photos […]
