Is That You Woody ?1695 viewsA rare sight in my neck of the woods, this Woodpecker was enjoying the warm Autumn Afternoon in the White Birch Tree in my front yard. Partly cloudy skies and a high of 70.9 degrees at my Weather Station in Altadena, CA made for a wonderful day.

In Alignment1689 viewsTaken 5/14/04
A beautiful warm evening here in the Los Angeles area. 95 degrees at my station in Altadena today. I spent the evening in the back yard to watch a visible pass of the International Space Station (ISS) and took some photos of the evening sky. The brightest object is Venus, the "Evening Star". Moving 45 degrees from Venus to the upper left you see Mars and then Saturn. A beautiful alignment of three of the visible planets.

Mauna Loa1688 viewsTaken 4/6/06
Rising gradually to approximately 13,679 feet above sea level, Mauna Loa is the largest volcano on our planet. This enormous volcano covers half of the Island of Hawai`i and by itself amounts to about 85 percent of all the other Hawaiian Islands combined. Mauna Loa is among Earth’s most active volcanoes, having erupted 33 times since its first well-documented historical eruption in 1843. Its most recent eruption was in 1984. This photo was taken from the 13, 796 foot Summit of Mauna Kea.

Smokey Sunset1685 viewsNow this would have been a beautiful sunset if it wasn't for the circumstances. The phrase "red sky at night, sailors delight" does not apply here.

H31683 viewsTaken 10/8/05
While Weather Photography is an ongoing quest, I occasionally get off on tangents and focus on other subjects. Current Project: Humming Birds. Boy, are these guys tough to catch! The Mexican Sage (Salvia Leucantha) in my yard really attracts Humming Birds.

Medley1676 viewsTaken 11/10/03
Grand Central Market in Downtown Los Angeles. I took this while experimenting with my first Digital Camera, an Olympus C-5050. I thought it was a beautiful medley of food, people and color.
