Photo Of The Day : “The Swamps Of Hawaii”

This scene struck me as one of those classic scenes you see in your head when you think of Hawaii. Yet another scene from the beautiful Waimea Falls in the North Shore of O’ahu, Hawaii.

Photo Of The Day: “The God Of Cool”

You never know what you are going to see in the Napa Valley wine country. Such as this awesome statue at the Jacuzzi Family Vineyards. This was spotted during the annual April in Carneros event. Can anyone tell me which greek god this is?

Photo Of The Day “Viva Las….New York?”

“Viva Las….New York?”

Las Vegas, Nevada has something for everyone. Tons of craps tables for the gamblers (me) with tons of free drinks and bars for the people who love a nice cold cocktail (me). Amazing pools for those who want to relax in the hot sun and work on their tan (me). And unique and awesome structures that a photographer can have a field day with (me). Looks like I am moving to Vegas!

Photo Of The Day “The Fiddle And The Shoe”

“The Fiddle And The Shoe”

I LOVE photographing live bands. It can be very difficult, but extremely rewarding. Capturing the raw emotion in the musicians while they jam, the cool lighting, the crown keeping the beat to the music by clapping, stomping and……..playing chopsticks?

Yes, pounding on anything they can find with chopsticks. This is how The Brothers Comatose likes it. They hand out chopsticks to everyone in the crowd and encourage off beat noise making, soley for the love of crowd participation. This is Folk/Bluegrass music at it’s fiddle flying finest!

If you have never heard of these guys, check out one of their vids (and my favorite song) at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G9rbeluKycU

Disclaimer: The beards are much bushier these days

And become a fan of theirs on Facebook! http://www.facebook.com/thebrotherscomatose?sk=info

If you can’t tell from this video why I love photographing these guys in action, then you need to come see it in person

Photo Of The Day: “The Ring Of Kerry River”

The Ring Of Kerry in Ireland is one of those amazing places you don’t really think ACTUALLY exists until you find yourself driving down to the thin, 2 lane highway with nothing around you except lush green vegetation and sheep. You come to the coastline and are just blown away by the rugged cliffs, pounding surf, and driving gale force winds. This is an amazing drive, and my only regret is that we did it too quick! If you ever find your self in Ireland, make sure to drive the Ring Of Kerry!

This HDR photograph was taking shortly after entering the Ring Of Kerry. I do not know what river that is. Anyone know?

This is an old photo. A couple of years I believe. Since I have been super busy with some photography projects I have to finish, I haven’t had much time for my “personal” photography. =( So I realized I had never made this a photo of the day. So, here it is!

I took this with a 400+mm focal length from downtown Tiburon CA.

Photo Of The Day: “Sunrise Peak”

It really is mind boggling that with a simple focal length of 432mm (ok, not THAT simple, but just go with it), you can see snow in this view from Zabriskie Point in Death Valley, a place that regularly reaches 120 degrees F in the summer. This was taken at Sunrise. As you can see, the desert sky is beautiful at this time!

Photo Of The Day : “Arguing Elephant Seals”

On my way back from Los Angeles, I decided to take the LONG route home on Highway 1, instead of taking the same old, boring route of I-5 through the center of the state. For anyone who has never driven Highway 1, drop everything you are doing and GO NOW! It is a beautiful, quiet, and pristine stretch of rugged California coastline. Somewhere around the last town,or anything manmade for that matter (Harmony, Population 19) for about 3 hours is this beach filled with thousands of huge elephant seals. The males are beasts, the females are super cute mounds of blubber, and the pups are just adorable.

While snapping photos, I noticed this male in the foreground and the female in the background (with a little pup on her side) howling at each other. Looks like some form of Elephant Seal Marriage. The second picture is just 2 cute pups snuggling with their mother!

Photo Of The Day : “Santa Monica Ferris Wheel”

Since I haven’t had much free time here in LA to sit in front of my Macbook, this is the only photo I have processed as of yet. But I like it!

 

 


Photo Of The Day : “The Wine Menu”

One of the greatest privileges of living in the Bay Area is that some of the most acclaimed wine country in the world is only a quick 30 minute drive! Nicholson Family Winery is one of our favorites. The grounds are beautiful, the people friendly, and the wine is tasty!
