Island in The Sky1402 viewsTaken 10/23/05
This was taken at the end of the Kagel Canyon Truck Trail in the Angeles National Forest above the San Fernando Valley. It was sort of an overcast day but at approximately 3550 Above Sea Level we were above the haze. This was the view looking West toward Oat Mountain.

Manhattan Beach Pier1351 viewsTaken 12/20/05
Several storms out in the Pacific were beginning to affect Northern California with heavy rain. These same storms were causing heavy surf all along the coast. A large west-northwest swell continued to affect the outer coastal waters of Southern California today. Breakers of 8 to 12 feet, with locally higher sets, pounded the coastline. Here you see the waves crashing against the end of the Manhattan Beach Pier

A fast moving cold front moved through Los Angeles today bringing about .24" of rain and a high temperature of only 55 degrees at my station in Altadena. Light snow was reported at Mt. Wilson. This photo is looking West from Altadena at the La Crescenta area above Glendale. A break in the clouds let the rays of sunshine through. A beautiful day.

Wind Over My Station1364 viewsTaken 1/23/06
Strong winds buffeted Southern California last night and this morning causing wide spread damage. Fallen trees, downed power lines, etc. Sustained winds at my station were 30 mph with gusts as high as 42 mph. Combined with extremely low humidity, these conditions have prompted a Red Flag Fire Alert. Here, the wind is bending over the tree in my front yard with my Weather Station s Anemometer and Rain Bucket in the foreground.

Cumulonimbus1439 viewsI was flying back from Boston and got a chance to see some spectacular weather from the air. We were heading West over Arizona and the hot afternoon Sun was creating some beautiful Cumulonimbus clouds. We were flying at approximately 32,000 Feet and the Thermal Convection was driving these clouds well above us. Taken July 23, 2007.

Kansas City Thunderstorm2024 viewsI was visiting Kansas City, MO and I was staying in the Downtown Marriott Hotel. A nice Thunderstorm was passing through and I was watching it out my window on the 14th Floor. I got to see several good lightning strikes and was able to capture this one with my camera. Taken with my Canon 5D, 30 second exposure @ f14, ISO 100.
