Sedona Fall Color – Slide Rock State Park

01-mjensen-slick-rock-2085 The main attraction of Slide Rock State Park is the red rock formations and water that runs through it. It is such a popular swimming area during summer, you can hardly see the red rock for all the people. In fact, it is very difficult to get a photo of the water without people almost all year round. In this next photo, I arrived very early and was lucky to have just two people. I decided I didn’t mind including them. Read more

It sits along Oak Creek in Oak Creek Canyon under a canopy of Sycamore trees and, as you might imagine, it is absolutely gorgeous! Read more

Zabriskie Piont

This image was taken from Zabrisk[e Point in Death Valley. I zoomed in on the distant river bed (it looks like a river bed anyway) and panned at a slow shutterspeed. I printed it on canvas and it really looks like a painting! I’m spending more and more time on Google Plus so check it out for more of my photos:

Happy New Year!

Even with all our rains lately, fireworks are banned at the moment. However, we can buy fireworks! That makes perfect sense, doesn’t it??! Anyway…if we want to see a display, we’ll need to go out of state. This image is a composite of several bursts from an evening of fireworks at the pier in Cayucos, California. Although the finale wasn’t quite this many bursts, it was one of the best we’ve seen.
