This is the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Stratton. It is one of the U.S. Coast Guard’s newest ships and is home ported in Alameda, California. We pulled into Puerto Vallarta, Mexico for some rest and relaxation after a long 3 month patrol. The locals were very nice and the food was absolutely amazing. I was on my way back from a hotel with some friends and as we were walking back I saw the ship and it looked great at the pier. Because we were running late I was able to get this one picture of it. I took this with the Sony Alpha a6000 and the kit lens.
These were shot at Edwards Air Force a few weeks ago. This plane is at the heritage museum. I had to use some filters to give them the look you see, due to the lights surrounding it. It was shot with a Sony Alpha A7Sii and a Rokinon 14mm lens at f/2.8.
This was taken at Sequoia National Park, in California. It is close to the General Sherman Tree by the Congress trail.
I used a Sony Alpha A7Sii, Rokinon 14mm, Nodal Ninja and a Mefoto Tripod. I took 12 shots total. 6 of them were pointed down at a 40 degree angle and then the other 6 were pointed up at a 40 degree angle. I then loaded the files in Adobe Lightroom CC 2015.10. Within LR I applied the lens profile and the exported all the files as TIFF’s. Once the files were converted to TIFF’s I loaded them in PtGui Pro and stitched them together to form a panorama. After the Panorama was made, I injected the photo with some fake metadata so it would display properly on social media sites. If you have further questions feel free to ask. I am here for YOU to learn.
This photo was taken on the Talkeetna River in Talkeetna, Alaska. This was my first time shooting the Northern Lights. I was so blown away by the natural beauty of the lights. In this picture we have the moon, venus, some of the milky way, Mt. McKinley, some of the milky way and the Northern Lights. It is a 3 picture panorama and was shot on a Sony Alpha A7Sii camera with a Rokinon 14mm lens.
This is a 360 VR photosphere of the visitor center at Lassen Volcanic National Park. It has lot’s of great info inside about the park and places to see. If you stop by here talk to the Ranger on duty and ask him or her the best places to see. The park is full of great photo opportunities.
This is the waterfall at Salt Point State Park, Sonoma County, California. I think it is the #1 tidal waterfall in California. I took this photo a couple of weeks ago after the rain storms that we had here in California. It was taken in Salt Point State Park, Ca. I arrived to this spot and there was a bunch of other photographers snapping photos like crazy. I scoped the scene out and found where I wanted to shoot from. It was not the best of spots but I took the ground that was available to me. As soon as the sun went down the group left. I wasn’t sure why? But, none the less I had the whole spot to myself and acquired this shot with my Sony Alpha A7S. I think the shot came out great, especially since I had the wide angle lens on it, the Sony 10-18mm lens. What do you think?
