Red Flag Sunrise199 viewsTaken 2/7/06
Another Red Flag Warning for Southern California. Gusty Winds and extreme Low Humidity prompted another day of Red Flag Fire Danger. This beautiful Sunrise, looking East from Downtown Los Angeles is unfortunately made more dramatic with smoke in the air from a fire burning out of control in the Cleveland National Forest. Over 3500 Acres have burned with some progress being made this morning. Fortunately there have not been any injuries or homes lost at this point in time.

Lancer153 viewsTaken 1/4/05
The B-1B Lancer Strategic Bomber makes a High Speed Low-Level Fly-By over the Rose Bowl in Pasadena at the beginning of the USC vs Texas Championship Game. I wish it could have been a bit sharper but it was getting dark and I had the camera pushed to 1600 ISO using a 100-300mm Zoom. Exposure was 1/40th sec @ f5.6

JPL Under Siege221 viewsThursday 8/27 around 8:45 PM. Lynne and I went down to the Arroyo to see how the fire was going. It was an eerie sight to see the fire extending along the ridge behind JPL. It didn't look like it was going to get any better soon.
