A simple car headlight, but of a vintage vehicle, taken at the Wigwam Hotel on Route 66 near San Bernardino, 2015
Oceanside Pier Sunset
An unschedule stop, but for a sight that I would never forget. I probably enjoyed photographing the sunset more than the sunset itself. Oceanside Pier on the Pacific coast of Ca. 2015
Magic Kingdom California
The show was still going on, but many people had the apparently right idea to escape early and miss the crash. Fireworks at Disneyland, 2015
San Diego Skyline
Without a tripod, my camera was resting on a low brick wall to get this long exposure shot of the San Diego skyline. From Coronado, 2015
Not supposed to have a tripod in Disneyland at Anaheim, and I didn't. This image was shot resting on a concrete wall, late in the evening when the park was winding down. 2015
Who doesn't love Disney? There's probably a trigger from everyone's childhood in this park, even if don't admit you watched these movies as a young boy! Anaheim , California, 2015
What set of images from Disneyland would be competed without the castle? Anaheim, California, 2015
An old Dodge at the Wigwam Hotel on Route 66 near San Bernardino, 2015. I don't actually like the Dodge brand, but it is a "classic", so therefore, it does have a certain appeal when out looking for these shots.
Beat up Pontiac
A bashed up old Pontiac. I wonder what stories this car has to tell. At the Wigwam Hotel on Route 66 near San Bernardino, 2015
I didn't actually like Hollywood Boulevard, found it a bit tacky. A bit, you say!? Well, this was at the eastern end of the strip, away from all the glitz. Los Angeles, 2015.
An all American brand, old a very old car at the Wigwam Hotel in San Bernardino. 2015.
With such a sky on the horizon, just across the Mexican border, i had to create this shot as a panorama. This is a fantastic late afternoon sky at Thanksgiving on Coronado Beach,San Diego, California, 2015
Fishing in the Pacific at Coronado
I wonder what kind of fish he was trying catch so close to shore, but it was quite a scene on Thanksgiving at Coronado Beach, which a storm brewing just across the Mexican border. San Diego, California, 2015
Rays of Light in Coronado****
I wish I had an ND filter or a working tripod for this trip (my tripod was broken), as the scenes on the beach at Coronado were just spectacular. San Diego, California, 2015
Hotel del Coronado
Didn't have a tripod available (it broke in a Disney hotel), so I had to make do wit a high ISO setting to get this shot, which I actually really love. This was Thanksgiving night on Coronado Beach, San Diego, Ca. 2015
Pacific Beach Sunset
**The Oceanside Beach Pier appears to be a magnet for photographers at sunset, and during my brief and single visit there, I found out why. First time staring out at a Pacific sunset - great experience. Ca. 2015
Love the way the sunset reflection off the wet sands. Sunset at Oceanside was quite a thrill for photographers, and there were dozens of them out there that night. I can see why. Ca. 2015
No beach sunset page would be competed without a shot accentuating the reflections of the glistening sand on the water's edge, hence this age. Oceanside Pier, Southern California, 2015.
Under the Pier
Brilliant evening light, trying to outmuscle the shadows of the Oceanside Pier Sunset, Ca. 2015
Frisbee at Oceanside
This is Oceanside Beach, taken at sunset during an impromptu stop on the drive north along the coast. What an idyllic place this turned out to be. . California, 2015.
Nevada / California Line
Arrow straight American highway are part of the draw of this country, and when you get them in the desert, it is all the more special. This is the state line east of Death Valley, California, 2010
California Desert Highway
Another arrow straight desert highway. This one is in eastern California just south of Death Valley. I love the way the desert expanse slowly graduates the base of the mountains. Fantastic place. 2010
Lonely California Highway
Who doesn't love an American road trip, with arrow straight roads like this. Eastern California, 2010
Death Valley Basin
I can quite imagine a film or two being shot here - maybe an early Star Trek episode. This in Death Valley, rear Dantes Peak, California, 2010
Another desert landscape with a rippling road surface - all down to the long lens though. Death Valley, California, 2010
What better way to capture a road trip shot is to bet an undulating desert highway, complete with a camper van? Badwater Road, Death Valley, California, 2010
Some fantastic colours, patterns, and topography in California's Death Valley. This is Zabriskie Point. 2010.
My camera was packed away and we were driving, until I looked in the rear view mirror and decided to make just one more stop. What a sight it was, sunset over the mountains at Zabriskie Point, California. 2010.
Ripples in the Desert
This is Zabriskie Point, with some quite incredible - alien looking - landscapes. It's all a simple matter of erosion, but quite beautifully done. 2010
Last of the Light
The last shot I took that day, on the way back to Vegas from California's Death Valley. If you love a road trip, then you'd love this part of the world. 2010.
Badwater Photo Opp
I couldn't stay out in that heat very long, so I can sympathize with this couple if taking this shot got a little stressful. The is fully 275 feet below sea level. Inhospitable, to say the least. 2010
I just love the American highway, especially in the desert. This is Badwater Road, in California's Death Valley. I love the way the road disappears and gives way to the vast expense of the desert - a real sense of scale.
