“Circular Golden Splash” / As the sun was setting to the right side of the Pismo Pier I took a number of shots with the waves splashing against the pier’s pilings as they came crashing towards me and I thought this one was a really cool capture!  Look closely in the middle, can you see the “circular splash” lit up in the golden rays of the sun encapsulated within the Pier?!?! 😳👊🏼. Hope you all have a “golden” weekend!!!😉👍🏼😁

Last Saturday morning I was fortunate enough to watch what was NASA’s last Delta II Rocket launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base (or any other launch site for that matter), which in and of itself is historic.  It’s the closest I’ve ever been to a launch pad (approx. 4miles away) to watch a rocket take off in my life.  These 5 photos are in sequential order so please SWIPE LEFT!😁. Unfortunately there was a very low marine layer off the coast early Saturday morning which made it difficult to capture a shot with the rocket in the frame before it disappeared into the clouds for a few seconds.  The sky lit up totally orange as seen in the second photo as soon as the rocket engines were ignited, which that alone was a stunning sight!I wasn’t able to capture the rocket itself just as it took off in any of my shots, but the third photo does show the “exhaust” from the rocket’s engines just before it goes into the cloud (see rainbow like colors at very top of shot) which I thought was pretty neat, and of course the smoke looked pretty cool against the surrounding orange colored glow as well!  The crazy thing is you didn’t actually “hear” the noise or “feel” the vibration of the rocket until it was at least 8-10 seconds AFTER it had launched - that was pretty crazy to experience!  The fourth shot just looks like a big mushroom cloud!!🤣. It was an experience I’ll never forget!🚀. I have to give credit to another photographer (I believe his name was Evan, and if you’re out there reading this and I have the wrong name I’m so sorry!!) whom I set my tripod up next to.  He let me borrow his Canon 75-300mm lens so that I could zoom into 300mm for these shots, and he helped me with my camera settings as well, which was really helpful!  Evan if you’re out there reading this thank you!!👍🏼🚀. Oh and by the way, there was a satellite from my alma mater - Cal Poly, SLO that went up on this launch too!!!👍🏼👊🏼🐴

As this Milky Way season comes to a close I can’t help but reflect back on all of the nights I’ve gone out to capture this amazing little piece of our galaxy, and all of the “freak out” moments along the way!!😳🤣However, I can’t believe I’m about to say this, but in capturing this shot last night there was not a single strange sound whatsoever- THAT was a first!  Haha!! I’m so happy I was able to capture my first straight up vertical shot of the MW, with the core!  I’m definitely hooked on shooting the Milky Way for sure!  Oh, and getting this shot BEFORE 11:00PM was pretty cool too!!😂. Hope y’all have a great rest of the weekend!💫⭐️

Sunrise featuring golden tones, upon golden hues, upon golden colors.😎| I shot this from the same location as my previous post, only difference is obviously the color in the clouds had changed and I zoomed in from 17mm to 70mm.  I really like how the light and shadows were cast across the hillside.

This was the very first shot I took of yesterday’s sunrise as the purple color in the sky was quickly fading.  If you watched my Stories from yesterday morning you didn’t see as much purple in the sky since I didn’t start taking any vids until after most of the purple had gone away.  Suffice it to say I was too busy snapping away to capture this light which didn’t last long (again, this was my FIRST shot that I took when I got to this location, which was when it was at its best!). Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!!!🔥😉👍🏼

Just out last night chasing that sunset light through a slot in the trees!!! To say that I “hurried” with my camera and tripod to get in position and ready for this shot would be an UNDERSTATEMENT!🤣. Hope everybody has a great Labor Day weekend!😃 .

Hope everyone’s week is going well so far!  Here’s a moody shot of Montana De Oro from a couple months back.  The gray to purple transition in the clouds was pretty cool to see, and I liked how the last light of day got squeezed down in between the ocean and the low clouds.  Looking at this photo takes me right back to that moment in time as this was taken just before I left MDO for the night.  I can smell the ocean breeze now😁. Have a great rest of the week!👍🏼🌊

Iridium Flare Crossing Path of the Milky Way💫 | Here is another shot I took of the Milky Way while up in the Sequoia National Forest last Saturday night.  The Iridium flare was just a bonus.......better to be lucky than good!😉😜. The foreground was not light painted.  As in my previous post to this one of the Big Dipper I was able to take advantage of the moonlight (Moon was behind me in this shot) which really helped to bring out the detail in the rock and trees that you see in the foreground here.  Last weekend was the first time I’ve shot a moonlit foreground and I really like the result.  You can also crank up the exposure/highlights/shadows in post processing and not have near the amount of noise issues to deal with in foreground subjects all the while maintaining a lot more detail in the foreground.👍🏼. Of course I realize most of you already know this, so for those that don’t...well then now ya’ know!😁. I know in post processing I was very impressed by this fact, seeing as how this was the first time I had shot using moonlight.  With all that said I thought the MW turned out pretty well too considering that this was a 10 sec. exposure at f/2.8 and ISO 1600.  Same settings as the Big Dipper shot (previous post). Shortest MW exposure time I’ve ever done thanks to the moonlight!🌛😉

Have you ever been to a location at night to shoot the MW first and foremost but while you’re out there you just happen to notice (completely unexpectedly) that the Big Dipper just so happens to “line up” with your overall foreground and your eyes nearly pop out of their sockets because you find yourself in a state of shock and disbelief....and THEN after you get over that initial shock you think to yourself “I’ve GOT to get my camera lined up for this shot!!”, and you rush to get your camera and tripod setup!?!?!?! Yep...that was ME!!!🙋🏼‍♂️😁🤣. I swear I couldn’t believe this alignment when I first saw it, and I only had a few minutes to get it before the lower right star of the Big Dipper went behind the mountain!  I actually shot this while the Moon was still up and before I started shooting the MW (Moon was to the left in this shot), which resulted in some awesome light against the rock to the right side of the road and most all of the Pine Trees on the hillside.  With the moonlight still out this afforded me the opportunity to try some completely different camera settings than what I’d normally use when shooting the MW - most notably a shorter shutter speed of only 10 seconds at f/2.8, and ISO 1600.  Hope the rest of the week goes well for everyone!!👍🏼😁💫 .

So even though I wasn’t able to capture the core of the MW last night due to the timing of the setting Moon (which that in itself was cool to see🌛) I was still able to frame this lone tree in the Sequoia National Forest in between the “sides” of the MW looking out over the top of a small section of the central San Joaquin Valley.  I tried a few different comps, but this one was my favorite.  Oh, I might also add that the NOISES I heard up on the mountain last night were non-stop and loud the entire time I was there, and yes I did have that one “jump moment” over who knows what?!?!🤷🏼‍♂️😳. Hope you all have a great week!💫😁

Well.....here is my very first B&W ever posted in my gallery thanks in large part to a combination of too much light pollution AND smoke!  I went to shoot the MW earlier this morning and unfortunately it was just barely visible (and the core was most definitely washed out by the light pollution on the horizon). Soooo.....with that said I decided to try for a moody B&W once I saw the images in my computer!😜. I was going for a vertical MW shot directly over top of this very old wooden shack.  You can just make out a part of the MW at the very top of the image above the shack.  I also light painted this shot from frame right which helped me get reasonably decent detail of the worn down shack.  I might also add that during the time I was out there I had two freak out moments (always have at least one when out shooting the MW😳). First, a Bat flew just a few feet above my head at one point.  Second, a Coyote came within about 15 feet of me as it ran past me while I shined my light on it the whole time from when I saw it coming towards me.  About 10 minutes after that incident I heard a ton of Coyotes from all around me off in the distance making their howls.  At that point, I packed it up and got outta’ there!😳🦇😳🐺

This morning’s sunrise near Squaw Valley amidst lingering smoke from the Ferguson Fire near Yosemite which is quite a bit north of where I live.  This is significantly less smoke than what we’ve dealt with in the central to south San Joaquin Valley over the last couple of weeks.  The smoke is primarily along the eastern Sierras and doesn’t seem to extend nearly as far west of the Sierras out over the Valley as it has over the last couple of weeks.  Thankful for all the firemen battling this and every other fire currently burning throughout the state!🙏🏼

Thankful for all the firemen battling this and every other fire currently burning throughout the state!🙏🏼 . . . . . #ipulledoverforthis  #abc30insider  #sunrise_and_sunsets  #sunrisehunter  #sunrisemission  #foothills  #sierranevada  #awesomeearth  #ruralphotography  #ruralamerica  #itsamazingoutthere  #mountainscape  #sunflare  #mountainscenery  #sunburst  #sunriseandsunsets  #sunrise_madness  #rsa_rural  #ig_northamerica  #seekingtheoutdoors  #nature_brilliance  #canonphoto  #sunrise_pics  #sunriselovers  #sierras  #vizualtones  #colors_of_day  #rural  #shotzdelight  #fingerprintofgod 
These smoky filled 100 plus degree days in the San Joaquin Valley have me thinking back to this significantly cooler evening earlier this year in Pismo Beach!  The Central Valley of CA. where I live has officially broken a record for number of days OVER 100 degree days.  Since July 6th, the Valley has had 23 consecutive days of over 100 degrees!🔥 The previous record of 21 days was set in 2005, and we’re still forecasted for over 100 degrees this next week.  So yeah, I’m definitely thinking about this sunset in Pismo Beach this past February since the heat and Forest fire smoke has me a little....🤪😡!

DISCLAIMER:  SWIPE LEFT ON THIS ONE!!! Ok, now that I have your attention😁. These are 10 successive photos from this morning’s 4:39AM SpaceX Falcon9 Iridium Rocket Launch (a satellite deployment mission). It was launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base in CA., and I took these photos just to the south of my hometown of Dinuba, CA. which is approximately 140 miles away!  Now, I may have seen a rocket launch when I was younger, and if I did I certainly don’t remember it.  So, as far as I’m concerned this is the first rocket launch of any type that I’ve ever witnessed, let alone photographed!🚀. So here’s the back story...I scouted out this location last night.  While at this location last night I used The Photographers Ephemeris app to more or less point myself towards Vandenberg Air Force Base, then I switched over to the Compass app and more or less got my directional degrees towards VAFB.  Once I had that I figured I’d at least “be in the ballpark” as far as direction was concerned!✅. Woke up early this morning and headed out there.  Set up my tripod/camera THEN with about 5 minutes before liftoff I live streamed SpaceX’s YouTube channel on my phone so I knew in real time when the launch occurred!  It worked perfectly!  When I saw the initial red glow slowly rise above the ground in front of me I was completely FLOORED!  I couldn’t believe that all of this preparation actually came together AND that I hardly had to move my Camera when I first saw it take off!✅✅. These were all shot at a focal length of 17mm, f/4.5, ISO-800, however the shutter speeds ranged from 5 sec. in the first few shots to 10 sec. to 15 sec. to finally 20 seconds.  I had no idea as to what to expect as far as shutter speeds were concerned so I just changed them on the fly!😁. Quick note, I THINK the seventh photo shows the beginning of Stage 1 separation from the main booster rocket (maybe?). I have to give a shout out to @surfnsnowboard for giving the “heads up” on the date and time of this launch in his recent IG Stories, and to @alstiger2 for initial camera settings!👍🏼😃🚀

“Night Watchman” | A different take on a not so oldie, but a goodie!  I held a smaller 250 lumen Mag Lite for this one and I really like how the color and “width” of the light turned out.  What do you think?  It’s difficult to wrap my head around the fact that I’m shining a light beam towards something that is approximately 25,000 light years away from this tiny little rock we all call Earth!🤯. I’m looking forward to hopefully capturing some more Milky shots next month!  Who’s with me?!?!😉💫✨

“Giant Corridor” | A little play on words there!😉. I caught the sunrise light at just the right time while looking through this “corridor” of Giant Sequoia trees.  Through the light and shadows off in the distance you can see Sequoias clear to the horizon.  It just so happened that there was the one dead Sequoia in the center of this corridor that I thought ended up contrasting so well against the green that surrounded it.  By the way, if there was such a thing as “Smell-O-Vision” here on IG you’d smell that fresh early morning mountain air right about now!  But then again you’d probably only want to put your phone up to your nose in private to take a sniff, because you’d probably look kinda’ silly doing that out in public!!🤣🌲

I stared into the “Eye of Light” and it stared right back. | So, this was shot a few nights back while I was out shooting some light trails of car headlights with an epic sunset in the background.  Here’s the crazy thing, there was this one car that rounded the corner and for just a brief second the driver flashed his high beams on and then immediately off just once towards me, this shot captures that very instant.  I had no idea until I got it into my computer that the “shape” of light around the flare would look like an Eye - can you see it?!?! The flare from the brief flash of light reminds me of the lines found in the Iris of an 👁! It wasn’t until I raised the exposure in LR that I saw this crazy “eye shaped” effect of light.  This has truly been one of my more difficult edits, but I think it turned out so cool looking!  This was a 15 sec. long exposure at f/18, and ISO 100.  I think it’s quite a “sight” - pun intended😉!What do you think?  I’d love to know your thoughts on this one!👁😉

Well......as it turns out I tried a slightly different composition yesterday morning at the exact same location as this morning.  Yesterday’s result in capturing a sun flare was much more successful even though yesterday “in camera” I didn’t think it looked all that good.  Of course I didn’t look at yesterday’s images on my computer until this morning - so there ya’ go!🤣Oh and obviously, I had a few clouds yesterday too as you can see, which always adds to an image!🌤😎. I also like how you can see the rays going UP into the sky too!  Finally, unlike this morning I didn’t zoom in to 135mm, rather this shot from yesterday was shot at 55mm, perhaps that makes a difference in sharpness of a flare?  I’m not sure🤷🏼‍♂️, but it was an interesting experiment as both days I shot at f/22.  Anyway, I’m quite pleased with this flare, and the light on the dried grass made for a nice golden color.  Hope you’re having a great Sunday!😃. As for me...I’m having a HOT one at a high of 107 deg. today!!🔥😁
