This Was One of the Coolest Landscapes I’ve Seen Yet in New Mexico

This was a really cool trip in every way. I found San Lorenzo Canyon by chance while browsing AllTrails. Wait, don’t you sit up at night looking at all the trails on AllTrails looking for cool, hidden finds? This canyon is located about 20-25 miles outside of Socorro in the middle of the New Mexican […]

Diablo Canyon

I spent an evening in Diablo Canyon with some beautiful convective virga showers spreading overhead last night. This trip was my first to Diablo Canyon, so learning how the light would change through the sunset was a steep curve.

It snowed in April and I didn’t mind it!

Snowscapes in Tijeras Canyon, New Mexico | 4/13/20 I am going to come clean and say the last couple of weeks have been pretty difficult for me.

Seeing the small things

In lieu of actually photographing weather, today dry air is moving in quickly to New Mexico leading to clear skies and a slight breeze. The weather is perfect, how boring. Today I decided to challenge myself creatively. I’m used to photographing big things like storms and mountains, so getting up on a mountain at 10,000′ […]

Lightning Photography is Love

There’s something about photographing lightning that will always keep me coming back. Every strike is different. Every strike is random. Every strike is so exciting in its own way. There are no moments more awe-inspiring than sitting near a storm and watching that sheer, raw power reach out of the sky and down to the […]
