Gnarly Tree Roots

Claw

3

I saw the roots of this tree and really had to make a photograph. I thought that in color it would have been rather boring, so I decided to get my IR camera for this shot.  I wanted to get low enough to emphasize  the roots and the way the tree is clawing at the ground to stay in place.  …

Convayer Gears

Gears

3

This is the low end of what was once a conveyer system at a hop kiln in the Russian River Valley of Sonoma County, California.  The hop kiln, its buildings, grounds, and old equipment are now part of the Hop Kiln Winery.  I was there one very bright, sunny day at just about 1:00pm – I might have preferred to …

Sunset in Mazatlan

Last Light

2

I’m going to wrap up Mazatlan photos with this image of the sunset from the top of the Posada Freeman Express in old-town Mazatlan.

Roses on a Table

Be Mine

I was on a business trip last week and didn’t have anything prepared to post while I was gone. It was the first sunny weekend in, forever maybe and I worked outside instead of shooting or processing photos.  Hopefully I’ll get back on track again. I wanted to post this today because it’s the 14th – wow, it’s been 2 …

Butterfly Stick

1

I was wandering around a winery in Sonoma Co. taking pictures and came across this.  I thought it might look cool in infrared, so I traipsed back to the car and retrieved my D200 for this shot.  Despite the fact that it looks like a plant (possibly a weed), I’m pretty sure it’s a stick with a gathering of small-winged …
