A special sunrise filled the sky over Death Valley's salt basin. The myriad of patterns constantly change shape as nature's forces create and destroy the interlocking of salt and earth.

This location changes constantly and I was happy to find these patterns on my final morning before heading home last month. I'll be heading back here to teach in February for anyone interested.

The volcanic rocks of the Grandstand on the Racetrack playa are silhouetted against the early morning light striking the mountains behind them. The cracked textures of the dry lake bed, or playa, add interesting textures to this desert landscape.

A section of ranbow glows vibrantly over the Panamint Mountain range in Death Valley National Park. The badlands, a geological wonderland of a landscape, of Zabriskie Point are seen below with the salt flat basin between. This was certainly one of the more memorable mornings spent in one of America's finest national parks.

I'll be headed back to Death Valley in a couple weeks for a workshop. 1 spot remains. Interested? Drop me a line. Thanks!

While most are still in bed lost in a dream state, I was out of bed at 2am and photographing the fog by 5am north of San Francisco. Normally, I love my sleep, but I couldn't resist. The day before, I had been up in the area teaching 1-on-1. On a mid day break, I wandered up into the hills and pinpointed this and a couple other locations. Seeing fog on the webcams when I got home that night ensured my return the next morning.

The Marin Headlands offer stunning views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the city of San Francisco. Here, the south tower of this iconic span rises above a sea of clouds as low fog passes into the bay.
