Christmas 2014 approaches. A chilling sunset, not far from the Capitol Christmas tree. Here Ulysses Grant, Union General and 18th President, looks towards the Smithsonian Museum and the Washington Monument.

Consider my prayer as an offering of incense that rises before You; when I stand with my hands outstretched pleading toward the heavens, consider it as an evening offering. Psalm 141:2

Friendship is the shadow of the evening, which increases with the setting sun of life.
Jean de La Fontaine

This is one of my favorite poses to incorporate at a newborn baby photo shoot. There's such nice storytelling here - the bond of a man and wife making such a beautiful creature. The contrast of baby's tiny hands with mom and dad's is quite nice too.

It also helps to soothe a fidgety baby; as you can see she is quite serene !

Floating past the Pleiades on the night of Jan 17th. This shot was on my radar since November, and remarkably two things cooperated-- the comet became sufficiently bright, and..... clear skies.... wow. The head was barely visible to the naked eye, but not the tail. On this night, the tail stretched 12-15 degrees. (A full moon is half a degree) I barely fit both objects in with a 180mm prime lens.

This is a stack of 12 tracked shots, about 65 seconds each. Different gases and ions cause the head to be green and the tail blue.

This is the 5th comet discovered by Terry Lovejoy.

One of the most distinctive features of the Laguna Beach coastline is the "Pirate Tower" which is located on Victoria Beach. The tower was built in 1926 for the family of William E. Brown, a state senator representing California's 37th district.

Brown sold the property in the 1940s to a retired Naval officer from Los Angeles named Harold Kendrick. It was then that the building took on a pirate-related mystique. Kendrick was known for dressing himself up as a seafaring plunderer and hiding coins in the tower's many crevices. Neighborhood kids would scour the staircase for hidden treasure, and what they found, they were allowed to keep.

Victoria Beach is easily one of my favorite spots to shoot in Orange County. On this particular evening, Tom and I had only been shooting for about 20 minutes when the sky really began to light up and we knew we had chosen a good night to make the trip down there. As you can see from my photo stream, I've been down there to shoot several times, but I think this might have been the best sunset I've seen at Victoria thus far.

Please feel free to find me at some of the links below and I'll try to follow you back! Thanks for your views, comments and faves!
