March 18, 2016, Los Gatos Creek Trail, Campbell, California. Not the peak of this season. Can I believe it was four years ago? I can. It was. Be well. Do Good. Be kind. Create. (Nikon D750; Nikon 28-300 f/3.5-5.6G Zoom. RAW processing in DxO PhotoLab 3.2; Editing in Adobe Photoshop.)

February 20, 2020 — Los Gatos Creek Trail, California A floral palindrome. Mother Nature is very accommodating in giving me a place to start. (Nikon D850, AF-S VR Micro Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED.

…his toeses are roses… (Regardless of the accuracy — or not — of Moses’s supposition, he was careful to watch the RGB histogram and underexpose 1.7 stops to keep from blowing out the red channel.)

March 23, 2013. Filoli, near Woodside, California. I have not one single clue what kind of flower this is. But here it is. I made many attempts at doing this justice over the years and it wasn’t until three and half years later that I was satisfied. It kept calling me back till I finally got it right. It was its own muse. (Canon 7D; Canon EF-S 18-135 f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Zoom. RAW processing in […]

August 24, 2016. Parque e Palácio de Monserrate, near Sintra, Portugal. While exploring this magnificent park — where I could have easily spent days — I was captivated by a large, smooth succulent. I saw the picture immediately. I made several shots with minor variations in composition and depth of field and moved on to other botanical wonders.

May 13, 2012. Monterey, California. Shooting roses from the side opens the door to myriad possibilities. I was unaware of most of them when I shot this. Imagine my surprise when I checked focus a moment later, magnifying the image to 100%, and was faced with a visage that took me straight to the New Mexico desert with Georgia O’Keeffe by my side. I coined the word on the spot. A floral landscape. Florascape. This […]
