Grand Sunset revisited

This is a picture I took earlier in the year at the beautiful Grand Del Mar hotel in San Diego. Actually, it's not the exact picture. When I took this image the sky was cloudy and gray and nothing happened at sunset except it got dark. I really liked all the other elements in the picture, so I decided to replace the sky with something a bit more colorful. For me, this takes it from "Yeah, that's cool" to "Wowsers!".

Impressions of Christmas

My younger son and I teamed up to capture this impressionistic image a Christmas program we went to last night. And by "teamed up" I mean he grabbed my arm while I was taking the picture. Be open to serendipity.

Cold and windy

It was a cold, cloudy and windy day at Glacier Point. Thankfully the clouds opened for a few minutes to let Half Dome peek through.

Feeling festive and out of focus.

Purple blurs

Check that one off the list

My good friend Joe just recently bought a red '98 Acura NSX. This is a car of my teenage dreams. He texted me on Friday an asked if I was up for some cruzin'. Um, yes. We drove back into the mountains, popped the top off and roared up and down some mountain roads.

Here's Joe and his sweet ride outside my house before leaving.

There was lots of this.

Which led to a lot of this.

No matter how twisty it was, Joe's face was the picture of contentment.

It turned out to not only be the best day, but the best time of day. Here's our first stop.

We stopped parked near some telecommunications equipment.

Not only did we get to see an amazing sunset, but the full moon rose over the mountains just as we were about to go.

It was a life-affirming time spent with a good friend. And the car was just as amazing as you've imagined.

Mystery Mountain

Ok, I really have no excuse for not posting the past two days, but I'll give one anyway. I did a photo shoot with one of my favorite bands, Uncle Daddy, on Monday. (check out their music here) The shoot went great and the guys were awesome. I wanted to get the pictures back to them as soon as possible so I spent the last few long nights editing. I delivered the images today, so I'm all done. It was a great experience and we came away with some really fun stuff. All that to say that I'm back on blog-track and will keep the pictures coming!
