2015 In Review

It has been a great 2015, and I thought I'd share with you some of the photographic highlights of my year.

I visited Joshua Tree National Park for the first time this year. I made two trips to the park. I focused on the trees but also on the Milky Way when I was at the park in the summer.

I made several trips to Death Valley this year. I was excited to get to visit the Racetrack for the first time. I also made several photographs of the Mesquite Sand Dunes. And I made the photograph of Darwin Falls that I wrote about in my last blog article. Here are some of my photographs from Death Valley this year.

I also made a few trips to Zion. I returned from the Narrows hike with a couple of beautiful photographs. I also visited the park in the Fall and captured some of the colorful foliage.

During the summer I focused my attention on Great Basin National Park, hoping to make some Milky Way photographs. I created this photograph featuring Mount Wheeler and the Milky Way.

I also took a trip to the Los Angeles area. Here’s a photograph I made at Laguna Beach.

Those are just some of the highlights of my year photographically. I also made several new photographs around Las Vegas and during some smaller trips as well. I’m looking forward to visiting new places and returning to familiar places and seeing what I can produce in 2016. Happy new year!
