Malibu foggy sunset afterburn




This is one of my favorite spots to view the fog roll over the mountain as you are up close and personal. Problem is that this area is usually fogged out so coming here is a gamble as you could be shooting good one minute and engulfed the next and end up missing some killer conditions. I’m loving how green all the hills are from this past winter.

Sunset lupines on the Palos Verdes coast




My wildflower hunt this season led me to this sweet gnarled tree just starting to sprout new leaves. There wasn’t a ton of lupine surrounding it but I found a nice patch and framed it as the sun went down. The golden hour clouds seemed to frame the tree perfectly. Shot is both focus stacked and exposure blended which seems to be the norm with most of my spring wildflower shots.

May Gray in Malibu above the fog



When you literally don’t know where the sea of clouds starts and ends. It’s May Gray and therefore fog season but this season started mid-april and I already made a good 5-6 trips out to Malibu before May rolled around.

California poppy superbloom, Walker Canyon



The moment of the trip where I climbed to the top of the hill, looked out and said this isn’t even real. This is THE most poppies I’ve ever seen blanketing any location. It looked like a river of poppies flowing down the mountain. I spent quite a bit of time up here just taking it all in.

Foggy redwood lookup, Muir Woods




Enjoyed a hike amongst the redwoods during our last visit to SF. I was hoping that we would be engulfed in fog while we were here to get some nice misty shots but it was a bit higher than anticipated so I shot straight up into it. The late morning sun lit the fog giving this a high key effect. Nikon D750, Nikkor 14-24, f/4, 1/50 sec, ISO-1000

Los Angeles and snow capped Baldy at twilight




Don’t forget that the reason we are having such a crazy spring bloom is because we had such an epic winter. The rate things are going I suspect summer is gonna be hot AF.

Mt. Tam fog flow at twilight



Fog season is around the corner. Looks like the bay area is already getting a taste of it. Here’s one from my last outing up there shooting above the fog on Tam at twilight.
