Water turns into clouds, rain and ice. Over time, rivers are created, canyons carved, and mountains formed. All of these elements, mixed together, create [...]

Original with music by Hans Zimmer: New Version for Jane Goodall Live with music by Justin R. Durban I grew up in the city — a world constructed of steel, concrete and asphalt. My view of the night sky was the moon and the handful of stars bright enough to outshine the glow of city [...]
I was filming in the Ancient Bristlecone Pine forest on the night of July 3rd. I just experienced an amazing orange-red sunset and as the light was fading, the clouds looked like they were disappearing for a perfect night of clear skies to capture the Milky Way. But as the Milky Way started rising over [...]

The water carves into the sandstone walls smoothing the rocks into beautiful flowing shapes and lines. This photo is available for sale as a digital [...]

The Petrified Forest is known for its very colorful petrified wood. Most of the wood have crumbled into little bits but there are still large pieces lying around. The area is huge but the park has limited hours to prevent people from coming in late at night to steal some of the petrified wood. Still, [...]
Happy New Year everyone! First sunrise of the new year, taken from the top of Griffith Park.
Autumn in Yosemite is a beautiful sight. Trees turn all shades of yellows, oranges and reds. The trick is knowing when the colors turn because it is weather dependent. This picture was taken back in October on a bridge crossing the Merced River.
At over 4,700 years old, the Ancient Bristlecone Pines are the oldest living trees in the world. They are found in the higher elevations of mountains in the American Southwest — California, Nevada, and Utah. The oldest trees live above 10,000 feet in extreme conditions where soil, nutrients and moisture are scarce, and winters come [...]
The Leonid meteor showers occur every year around November 17th-18th and I decided to make the crazy 5 hour round trip drive away from the lights of Los Angeles to the dark sky of Joshua Tree National Park in one night. Altogether I saw about 15-20 meteors per hour in the wee hours of the [...]
