Sometimes it just takes one.

Picture: Desert Bighorn sheep at Valley of Fire State Park, near Las Vegas, Nevada This is one of the images I included on my last post, my top photos of 2013. Now granted, I don’t actually consider this a super-great image. Sure, it’s a nice image, maybe even a very nice image. The reason it […]

Picture: People spending a day at the Beach, La Jolla Shores, San Diego County coast, California Click on photo to see a larger version.

Picture: Sunset through clouds at the Merced National Wildlife Refuge, San Joaquin Valley, California Several weeks ago I had to ship my (nearly) brand new Nikon D800 camera off to the Nikon Repair facility in Los Angeles.

Picture: California Mountain Garter Snake (Thamnophis elegans elegans) in the rocks and grass, Table Mountain, near Oroville, California First; Does anyone know (exactly) what type of Garter snake this is?

Picture: Peacock in front of vineyard in fall, near Avila Beach, California As I sit here, waking up this morning on the verge of getting sick (again), the fog in my brain still can’t keep away the thoughts of all I am thankful for, most especially the love and support of my wife, and the […]

My What Big Eyes You Have

Friday, May 6th, 2011

Picture: SomekindaSpider… ID help appreciated. A few weeks ago I found this beautiful spider living in my oregano plants. I was trimming the plant when ‘she’ scurried out and came to rest on the raised wood bed liner. I’m not a spider lover or spider hater. The only spiders I kill are the Black Widows […]

Picture: Wood-carved statue of Sasquatch, a.k.a. Bigfoot in front of the Willow Creek Visitor Center, Humboldt County, California I took this image a couple years ago while doing the photography for my book, Backroads of the California Coast.
