Hover Dam Water Inlet Gates

Another shot from the trip to Las Vegas. This shot was taken at the Hover Dam looking back towards Lake Mead. This image is showing two of the inlet towers that take the water in and move it towards the turbines to generate electricity.

LAS VEGAS – Photography in the desert

I recently went on a trip to Las Vegas that included everything from shows and tours to time in the desert so I could take some pictures. While on the trip we went out to the Valley of Fire National Park, right outside of Las Vegas and managed to get several pictures of the desert, its wildlife, rock formations and flora. This particular shot is of a wild flower just prior to bloom.

Unlike many photographers, I break one of the key rules to digital photography. I dont take a ton of shots. Instead, I take more of an old school film approach in that I look for compositions, look at various angles and pre-visualize my surroundings in an attempt to come up with good looking final images.

As always, comments and feedback are GREATLY appreciated

Happy Accident

I was out on March 6th looking for something to shoot in Ravensdale, WA. I accidently looked over my shoulder and noticed this pond on the side of the road. I parked and went exploring. This is what I came upon during my walk.

The Museum of Glass (MOG) in Tacoma, WA

This is the elevator lobby that takes you down to the MOG entrance. While the building itself has a great aesthetic, I was fascinated by the simple beauty of this structure and its materials. Aluminum, Glass, Steel and Stone. Louis Khan would be proud of Arthur Erickson the Architect of this structure.
