Bonzai Rock

I don't usually go out with the intention of trying to capture great landscape photos very often. People and action tend to be my area of interest when it comes to photography, but occasionally, I get an idea to go shoot something artsy. Bonzai rock has been photographed by thousands of photographers and I just wanted see if I could put my own personal touch on it. This photo was taken at around 8:45pm using roughly a 20 second exposure. I painted the rocks and the water with a powerful dive light to bring out some detail and then softened the overall look using photoshop.

Adventure Sports Week

Adventure Sports Week is an annual event that takes place at Farragut State Park, located just 25 miles north of beautiful Coeur d' Alene, Idaho. Farragut State Park is a great venue for this festival and celebration of multi-sport and adventure. Heather and I made it out for the second half and had a wonderful time working this event. I was able to sneak away on my breaks to take a few photos of the amazing athletes.

Bishop Climbing Anyone?

Wow I've really fallen off the horse when it comes to my blog. Hopefully I can post more regularly from now on. So lets just start where we left off...

Our Tahoe crew met up with some So-Cal'ers for a little climbing rendezvous in Bishop CA over Memorial Day weekend. We packed in three days of aggressive climbing in the Owen's River Gorge and finished it off with a little River Relaxation in Bishop when it was all over. Here are some of my favorite pics from the trip...
