I waited for years to get this shot. It required elements to come together and that proved so elusive. Nevertheless when finally stars aligned, it was breathtaking to see and capture the beauty of this place.

Boiling the Ocean
This was a scorcher of a sunset. At high tide waves lashed out at the rocky cove tirelessly and spilled onto the bluffs creating tide pools. It helped to capture the beautiful reflection of the burning sky.
I drove hours chasing the right cloud setup for this sunset. It was fully overcast on arrival, but I setup tripod and waited patiently. Sure enough color started to appear around sunset and grew more intense with time. Then suddenly the cloud tore open near horizon letting in light that illuminated parts of the sky in brilliant red hue. Persistence paid off...
Thirsty rolling hills after an unusually dry winter in California.
East Bay Hills, San Jose
Folds and Fire
An unique land formation that looks beautiful at day break.
