Salmon Bay Bridge, Magnolia, Washington
The drawbridge was up one day when I was looking for interesting perspectives to shoot with the drone. these ld metal structures are fun to shoot any time but I decided this would be an interesting different angle to shoot it from. This type of new and different angle on otherwise common urban subjects is one of the greatest aspects that drone technology brings to creative photography. Shot with a Mavic 2 pro
I have shot aerial photography of cities like Seattle out the window of Cessna aircraft for more than 30 years. But low light, longer exposure shots like this have never been possible. Drone technology is awesome! This was shot with a little Mavic 2 Pro, 20 megapixle image, at 1/4 sec shutter speed - and that's just nuts!
Tikal Temple 2019
We were hoping for lightning and storms at Tikal and the heavens cooperated with an awesome series of evening storms far enough away to allow dry shooting with dramatic periodic lightning flashes for picturesque backgrounds. This is my video specialist son Denver atop one of the lesser temples at Tikal as we were finishing up an evening of memorable shooting.
Forrest Gump Point Under the Milky Way
Forrest Gump Point just north of Monument Valley. Daytime shots at this location can be pretty hectic with all the people - its a very popular spot. You actually have to wait in line at busier times to get a shot without anyone in the road. But you don't need a tripod in daylight as is necessary for astrophotography. This shot was worked together from 12 sequential 15 sec exposures so I needed time to set up the tripod, get things aligned, focus and shoot for just over three consecutive minutes. Lucked out with a successful round of shots in between traffic at around 11:45 PM in late August just as the Milky Way rolled into position. Love it when the stars line up just right for my shots!

Vacationers at Hilton Head Beach
I was ferrying a Cessna 172 from Arizona to its new owner in Virginia in 2010. Spent the night on St. Simmons Island, GA and was continuing north along the coast. Passing through the Hilton Head area of South Carolina I spotted this colorful arrangement of beach umbrellas and vacationers that had to be documented. Shot out the open left side window while circling over Hilton Head.
Streets of Jewish Quarter, Old City Jerusalem
Century old streets pave the way for continue traditions of the Orthodox Jewish Faith.
I can't resist shooting old structures I find in abandoned Arizona mining towns - like this one that sits over an open mine shaft near Arivaca, AZ about 3 miles from the Mexican border. Bats were swooping on me the entire time while setting up - really freaky stuff!
