Back Bay

Here are a few pics taken along Back Bay Rd. in Newport Beach, CA with my new zoom lens. I have been having a blast with it for the last few weeks, and finally took it out for a few hours with the sole intention of taking pictures. Enjoy!

Fall Colors?

Unfortunately I don't live in the Midwest or east coast so the availability of fall colors is not as big as I would like. I did however find some yellow leaves near Steven's Creek Reservoir in San Jose. The spikes ones were taken near Great Falls in December while visiting my Dad in Virginia. It was too late in the season for fall colors. I just missed it by a few weeks.

San Francisco

On the night of the full moon/lunar eclipse back in August, I went up to San Francisco to take night shots of the city. I started up in Sausalito (just north of the Golden Gate) where I got some great pictures with the full moon rising above the fog. I spent the rest of the night walking around the city and ended the night at the Bay Bridge.

Mammoth Lakes, CA

These pictures were taken during my stay at the Altitude Project Christian distance running camp in August 2007. Mammoth lakes is one of my favorite places in California because of its natural beauty and because it is a great location to run. For me it doesn't get much better than that.

Our Cross Country team also goes to Mammoth for a week of pre-season training/team bonding. These next few were taken later in the summer on my second trip to Mammoth.


During the Altitude Project (based in Mammoth Lakes) we took a day to run and hang out in Yosemite Valley. I found a nice spot on the bank of the river with Halfdome in the background and had some cool lighting at sunset as well.

Washington D.C.

Before I left Virginia, I took an evening to walk around D.C. and take night pictures. Here are a few of my favorite from that trip.

Seneca Falls, WV

My Dad and I went on a hike along Seneca Creek to Seneca Falls in July. The entire hike was lined with small waterfalls and the lighting was great. It was my first time I had an entire day to spend focusing on taking pictures and I had a blast!

The beginning: I got my first SLR (the rebel xti) right before my trip to Fiji last summer. I had always loved to take pictures but this is where my passion for photography really began to grow. Here are a few of my favorite shots from that trip...and stay tuned for more!
