Los Angeles from afar

I was on a hike this morning up above San Dimas. I liked this little group of rocks just next to the trail.

Off in the distance you can see Los Angeles surrounded by the typical "marine layer" (smog).

Homes in Claremont and Upland

All of these homes are in older neighborhoods well known for their charm.

Los Angeles Sunset

Sunset today Nov 5, 2010 looking towards L.A. The reds were phenomenal in person. Shot handheld, I was on a long walk and did not bring the tripod.

Star Trails

No editing, straight from the memory card. I wondered your opinion.

ISO-100, F-5.6, Time 2 min, you can see the plane that passed through the lower third.

ISO-100, F-5.6, Time-7 min

ISO-200, F-6.7, Time 5min, re-focused and angled toward the darkest sky.

You can see the obstructive clouds and there is light coming in from all weird angles. Some from the sun (although it is below the horizon, 8:30pm) and some from the nearby forest service station, surprisingly bright. Anyway, not even close to what I was hoping for but a start.

So Cal

These pictures are from a trip I took in 2008. The first was taken on the infamous berm at the Naval Amphibious Base Coronado, CA. The second was at the Orange County Auto Show.

Chino Basin Water Conservation Dsitrict Garden

A good friend of mine works here and invited us to the gardens. My brother Larry (larryreeves.info) and I were able to get some nice pictures here.

Hot Rods, Pomona, CA

There was a cruise just this last week in historic Pomona, CA. The fairgrounds and drag strip have always brought some great auto events to this area. My favorites are some of these old Fords.

Chiriaco Summit

Chiriaco Summit sunset. The sun was setting fast and I was able to snap a few photos. I hope to try turning some of these into HDR images. These haven't been processed yet. There weren't a lot of clouds in the sky but it was still quite nice.

Summer stuff

These are a few images taken this August. Some from the pool.
I occasionally take pictures of flowers and other foliage although I am not too sure about proper composition. When I saw this little flower on our recent camping trip, front and center seemed appropriate.

Long Valley, AZ

Here is a shot while we were walking through the area surrounding our campsite. You can see Max running through the grass.

Thoricthys part 2

I changed some of my lighting for this aquarium as well as some hardscaping and I am very happy with the way it looks. The glass is scratched, not much I can do about that. The Firemouth is coloring up nicely, he is a lone man in the tank, unless you count Mr. Crabby, the shrimp. I got more quality photos this session than previously, I'm stoked. All of these images are straight out of the camera, no editing.
Both of them like to hide out behind the wood under the heater.
I really liked the amount of detail in these two shots.

This is how I usually find him. Peeking out to see if anyone is coming to eat him. I also like this shot because the colors are very true to life.
His "firemouth" is really maturing now.
Full body shot. I'm not sure where the tear in his tail fin came from, probably in his lightning quick escape into his hole when someone came into the room.

So Cal

I had the chance to go back to my hometown and do a little vet work this last weekend. It was a super fast trip but we got to see a few minutes of a bike race while there. As usual all of these images are straight out of the camera. Thats how I roll the fat ones.

Thoricthys spp.

Here are a few images straight out of the camera. This one was labeled as a Firemouth Cichlid at the fish store but I think it may be something else, pretty cool little fish either way.

So, 6 months later...

Here's a couple of images, straight out of the camera. The second one is for my brother, one of the few frequenters of this site, just to see the newest fish tank.

Kennecott Mountain
Note the sweet little duckweed floating on the surface.

Saw this on the sweet little sign, needs a new coat of paint.
