An uncommonly beautiful sunset lights up the California coast on summer solstice just over a year ago. The colors must have lasted for over 20 minutes as everywhere was glowing pinks and reds.

This was my first time seeing the Aurora and the Kp5 storm did not disappoint. The night started off a bit slow, but once midnight hit the sky erupted in nonstop Aurora dancing action.

Just a sliver of gap was needed along the horizon for the sky to explode in colors for a few short minutes. Known as the "crack" this narrow channel has become an icon for the Santa Cruz coastline.

Sunlight at last! The previous day was filled with winter storms that included near whiteout snow conditions and extremely strong winds. It was a relief to see both the sun and for a calm sunrise.

An intimate but colorful fall color scene created from foliage disintegrating into oils floating on top of still water. A combination of sunlight, glowing canyon walls, and autumn foliage create this luminous spectrum of colors. #ig_exquisite #ig_southwest #purplepassport #welivetoexplore #fantasticearth #jaw_dropping_shots #ourplanetdaily #nakedplanet #nationalgeographic #visitutah #reallyrightstuff #majestic_earth

Filtered sunlight strikes these rolling California hills during spring. For a few weeks after wet winters, California comes alive in electric greens. While similar to the hills of Palouse or Tuscany these hills have their own unique characteristics intrinsic to California landscapes.

After a night of auroras the morning brought us clouds. As soon as I saw these asperatus clouds (ribbon clouds) forming over the mountains I immediately pulled over. #ig_escaype #ourplanetdaily #majestic_earth #reallyrightstuff #jaw_dropping_shots #fantasticearth #purplepassport #welivetoexplore

A small but photogenic waterfall spills into the ocean with San Francisco's Seal Rocks in the background. It always baffled me as to what gets this waterfall flowing with high flow. Luckily this evening had some really great water flow along with some colorful sunset light.

Here's a behind-the-scene shot from one of the most magical mornings of shooting. A rare occurrence of dense low fog permeated these rows of trees during peak fall colors for an eerie yet mysterious feel. As you can see @davidthompsonphotography could barely contain his excitement while being fully immersed in his heavens.

Many of the oaks in California show a lot of character with their gnarly and storied branches. After spending several days hiking and looking for amazing looking trees I came across this stellar oak sprawling across the green hills. I returned a few weeks later to both witness and photograph this oak under a stellar sunset show.

I had a great few days out at the 61g lava ocean entry on the Big Island of Hawaii with @lavalightgalleries . Looking down below, this small crevasses of lava attempted to break out onto the surface. Although it never fully broke out into a major flow, this small glowing crack contrasted well with the gnarly bench along with incoming waves.
