On a recent trip to New York City I visited the Rockefeller Center Observation Deck. From there you can see most of Manhattan. It’s a pretty incredible view.
The slow shutter of this exposure gave the rhythmic Pacific waves a soft, foggy feel. This picture was taken along with Kona Coast, Sunset, I and Kona Coast, Sunset, II.
For this shot I used neutral density filters to get an exposure of 10 seconds at f/29.
The view of this lava rock at the mouth of a stream and the two large outcroppings in the distance reminds me of a young child playing near the shore watching their older siblings swim out beyond their reach.
Sunrise on the river is one of my favorite ways to start the day. When the water is calm it’s hard to image a more peaceful place. Approaching the river fills me with a sense of wonder and a profound appreciation of what lies ahead. Soon I’ll be out there among the herons and geese.
This is my submission for the Weekly Photo Challenge: H2O.
The Golden Gate Bridge partially conceals itself as fog lifts from the San Francisco Bay.
Another image of waves breaking against the Kona shore just before sunset. This one feels more serene than Kona Coast, Sunset, I but the two photos were taken within minutes of each other along the same stretch of the coast. The key difference being the length of the exposure. For this photo I used a 2.5 second exposure while the other was only 0.3 seconds.

My friends I and were on a multiday canoe trip on the Rappahannock River in July. One evening we rounded a bend in the river to see massive storm clouds building down river. Fortunately the storm took an alternate course and we were spared scrambling ashore to wait it out.
