A NICE SURPRISE…

While photographing the Bridges of Madison County, I came across this stately church in the small town of Winterset, Iowa.

WINTERSET IOWA CHURCH

There is something special about a small town, with a town square, and a church that has more memories than I could even imagine.

FOUR GENERATIONS

Last week, I had the privilege of photographing one family’s four generations.

SEASONS…

•December 30, 2013 • Leave a Comment

Some have said that California just doesn’t have any seasons.  Often I have heard people complain about the lack of seasons, which always catches me completely off guard!  To complain about January temperatures in the 70′s…well, that’s just wrong!

:)

In defense of southern California, I would like to offer this image which was captured in late November.  This is when our fall season begins.  Why…we could see temperatures drop into the high 40′s at night…BRRRRR!!

CA FALL RED

Seasons?  Oh, we have them!  Even today, December 30, it will be 72 degrees.  And yet…I can look out of my window and off in the distance…there it is…snow.  Sure, it’s in the mountains.  But, I can still see it!  And I can drive to it in about an hour if I would like to enjoy breakfast in front of a roaring fire at our favorite mountain cafe.  It’s California…the land of seasons!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas from Southern California, where you commonly find a mixture of Christmas and surf!  This shot was captured on our bike ride at Crystal Cove Beach in Laguna Beach.

IT’S NOT A PHOTO SHOOT UNTIL…

It’s really not a photo shoot until the sun sets on your day.  And, such was the case with this Laguna Beach December photo shoot.  As I was preparing to capture what looked to be a promising sunset, I glanced back over my shoulder to grab this shot just before the sun disappeared into the horizon.

And then finally…what all photographers hope to see at the end of their day.

LAGUNA BEACH SUNSET 12-1-13

Keep shooting everyone.

TOWER 2

The second image from the Laguna Beach day trip.  I captured this about an hour before sunset.  I was scouting various sunset perspectives and thought there was interest in this lone life guard tower.  Even though it is clearly marked 2, it is the only tower on this beach.

Simply “Tower 2.”

DAY TRIP TO LAGUNA BEACH, CALIFORNIA

Just the beginning of an album from my day trip to Laguna Beach this afternoon.  This is a row of houses along PCH at the very southern tip of Laguna Beach.  Just beyond these homes you will find the Montage Resort.
