Aspens - D800e, 70-200 @ 200mm, f/8, 1/13s, ISO 100
I didn't quite find the dense clump of Aspens on my last trip to Grand Teton, but by running a couple from top to bottom and framing to get color at the edges, I still got a mildly interesting image.

Tentacles - Leica S, 30-90 @ 57mm, f/8, 2s, ISO 100
Its been nearly 2 months since I last went out with an intention to make photographs, so this afternoon my daughter Maya and I drove out to Purisima Creek Redwoods Open Space Preserve for a little hike.  I had no expectations to make unique images, but only to exercise photographic creativity, which I definitely needed.

Spectacular sunrises and sunsets are also frequent as Bosque del Apache, something else I'm really looking forward to.

Landing - 1D4, 800mm, f/5.6, 1/400s, ISO 400.
I'll be heading back to Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge in New Mexico in a few weeks for a couple of days of photography.  The last time was there was in 2010 and I've heard that conditions in the refuge have changed, so I'm curious to see what the snow geese and sandhill crane situation is like.  I've been looking at images from my past trips to get myself pumped up and I'll be sharing a few more from those trips this week.

Sink and Sand

Sink and Sand - Alpa STC, IQ 180, 60 XL, ~f/13, 5s, ISO 35
Even though the sand has taken over this room, its amazing how vibrant the colors on the wall were.

Abandoned Barn in Storm

Abandoned Barn in Storm - 1Ds3, 70-200 @ 200mm, f/5.6, 1/400s, ISO 200
I made this image on my 2011 trip to Grand Teton National Park and I believe it was just a quick snap made during the second shoot in the morning.  I just came across it in my library last night and it felt perfect for a black & white.

Another image I found from last November while perusing my catalog in Lightroom this morning.

Stare - 1DX, 200-400 @ 560, f/5.6, 1/80s, ISO 1600
Exactly a year ago I was in the Okavango Delta in Botswana photographing Leopards, Lions and Elephants.  Good times.

Arabesque - Leica M9, 21 SEM, ~f/3.4, 1/30s, ISO 2500
I'm getting a little tired with my usual nature photos so time for something very different.  This was on a ceiling in the Alcázar of Seville, a royal palace in Spain.  I particular love the Arabesque form of art with its intricate geometric shapes, repeated patterns and scrolling lines.
