Here is my signature shot of the San Juan Capistrano Mission.  This is looking across the courtyard toward the chapel.

And, the sepia version.  Which do you prefer?

FLOWERS AT NIGHT

Here is an interesting shot of a flower with the after effects of a late evening shower.

The light coming from behind the flower makes for a somewhat surreal effect, I think.

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!

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.
