Cars Land

Cars Land

On my way out of Cars Land there must have been a dozen photographers all lined up on the ground taking a shot here. I decided to quickly switch to my 24-70 and shoot over them for this “compressed” shot of Cars Land. I really...

Yosemite Half Dome

Yosemite Half Dome Sunset

I’m a bit behind processing my Disneyland photos so you’re getting a shot I already have finished from my visit to Yosemite. This was taken from Glacier point during sunset. I was up here a little over an hour shooting through golden hour and got...

Put a Spin on Tomorrow

Put a Spin on Tomorrow

Although I typically try to keep my shots people free I sometimes find myself looking for shots I can take that don’t bother me if they are completely people free. This is one of those type shots where the sides matter so little to the...

Crystal Arcade

Crystal Arcade

The Back Side of Castle

The Back Side of Castle

Peh-No-Key-Oh

Peh-No-Key-Oh

Say the title like Ru-fi-o from Hook and then chant it over and over. Anyways… this is another great little dark ride at Disneyland. It’s not terribly difficult to shoot (other than the blue fairy, I missed her twice!). Shot with my Nikon 28 1.4...
