Taking a walk down the Californian coastline is an uplifting experience. On a clear day, to the roar of the Pacific Ocean, you can spot all kinds of wildlife. There are the fat, glossy sea lions that chill out on the rafts at Pier 39 San Francisco like working men after a beer too many, […]

It was a Monday in early April. We were in Carmel, California after a drive up the Pacific Coast Highway with a memorable night in Big Sur. We didn’t get a sunset in that legendary stretch of the coast; it was a dark and stormy night. When we arrived in the artsy coastal town to […]

Sunset Sunday – Joshua Tree National Park

Sunset Sunday – Joshua Tree National Park

The U2 album cover might show just a single Joshua Tree, but a visit to the National Park provides any visitor the chance to hike among thousands. Every few feet down a trail I discovered the next one and the next perfect photograph. After over a hundred different photos, I started to realize although each […]
