23 September 2009  Dust Dawn on the Beach Front.  I woke up this morning thinking it was the most insane sunrise ever!  The sky was glowing but by the time I got down the street it was pretty obvious something else was going on.  Some people were freaking out, for others it was business as usual.

11 May 2010  :: This shot was taken right on dark at 1/20th of a second.  I love the slow shutter blur but the surfer is still crisp.  The pink comes from the sky which was glowing due to ash in the air after a day of burning off out west.

17 April 2010  :: Alex Knost was in Australia for the Summer staying with some friends in Sydney.  I think this is Matt Chojnacki;s old mal he's riding here.  This was a Saturday in April and the sun was shining, the water was still warm and the beach was packed,  It felt like summer.
