Duck Creek at Sunset

Duck Creek at Sunset

Other than the stifling humidity, it is great to go feet from the house and have tons of vegetation, creeks, and fun things for the kids to do.  I wasn’t able to get out to see a sunset in the fields, but the creek did very nicely.  I love how the water caught the light.

Morning at Sanborn Park in Santa Cruz Mountains

Today I took the kids out into Sanborn Park in the Santa Cruz mountains.  The redwood forest is always a spectacular place to visit.  This was my first time in this particular area.  Below is  small collection of photos from the morning, starting with the log cabin type hostel.

I love the look of this building.  The fact that moss grows absolutely everywhere out here adds tons of character to everything.  It was a challenge to capture things with just the right amount of light since the most mossy structures were also in the shade.  This collection is comprised of both single-shot and HDR images to bring out the looks I was going for.   With most of my HDR images, I prefer the more natural look.

The first image I used for the Daily Shoot assignment:  #ds103 – Novelty can help goose creativity. Go somewhere today you’ve never been, even just a different street, and make a photo.


Los Alamitos Creek – San Jose

This was taken near sunset.  My favorite parts are the smooth light reflections and the leaves trapped by the rocks.
