Idyllwild Pine

Black and white gives an entirely different perspective to this photo. Color can be wonderful, but the stark contrast reveals new textures and exposes the bones of the scene.

Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve 

A view over the reserve’s manmade lake looking north to the San Gabriel Mountains. This reserve is less than a mile from my home and located directly adjacent to the 405 freeway and yet it is filled with birds and other wildlife and provides a wonderful respite from the city. 

Search on the title of the post for more information.

Santa Monica Mountains Vista

Santa Monica Mountains Vista

Another vista of interesting rock outcroppings in the Santa Monica Mountains at sunset. There is always something interesting to see and photograph in the interior of the mountains. A drive or walk reveals something new at each turn. #nature #mountains

The colors, the shape of the leaves and the seeds make these trees even more beautiful in Winter than Spring.

Sunset in Sherman Oaks

Exiting the theater yesterday, I was greeted by this view at the Sherman Oaks Galleria. There was something about the sun, the glass, the shapes and the shadows that stopped me cold and made me take the photo. So much happening in one space and one moment.

Palms in Black and White

Sometimes you need to remind yourself to look up when looking for photographs. I have seen many great shots by lying down or sitting and simply tilting my head back. It is always good to remind yourself of different viewpoints when out photographing.
