"The Race"...

Recently, I was honored and invited by Canon to be one of a select group to be the first to use their new tool for the Project Imagination "The Trailer" contest. I only had one afternoon to shoot this. No planning. Basically, just shoot, upload, edit and publish!
For any of you who enjoy shooting video, this is an awesome tool that allows you to edit the video clips, mix in still photos, and it even includes optional background music and voice-overs! You can choose from a variety of themes/genre's. Really cool stuff. If you enjoy shooting movies, this is a cool way to create a trailer for your movie. And the best part: if you enter the contest and win, Ron Howard will direct a film based on your trailer! Cool.
Watch the trailer that I had created for Canon's Project Imagination "The Trailer" contest website: https://imagination.usa.canon.com/gallery#trailer-332963152

A special thanks goes out to Tom & Luke Oxner for allowing me to photograph/video them on very short notice. Thanks guys!

"The Path"...

Not all paths are clearly defined. When this happens, take advantage and let it be a discovery.

Nature's Fireworks...

We often underestimate and undervalue the beauty that nature provides us. In a field of Daffodils, this group caught my attention so I spent some composition time with the sunlight. I hope you enjoy. Comments welcome!

Water Textures...

Water can take so many forms, that it can easily be mesmerizing to watch. If you study the water detail in this photograph, you may further appreciate the variety of textures and shape water can take.

Beyond the Surface...

Sometimes we're too busy looking for beauty on the surface, that we miss the greater beauty which is beneath. Back in 2003, I was photographing this creek and was mesmerized by the beauty beyond the leaves that were floating on top. Hope you enjoy. Comments welcome.

Branches of Time...

This tree has protected this homestead for a long time. The network of branches is amazing. It's just a really cool place to stand and listen. Comments welcome.
