Thanks for stopping by, friend. These photos chronicle my adventures in the American West, my home. Climbing the snowy peak, hiking in the mossy rainforest, or kayaking towards a distant island, that is where I will be. See you out there!

This photograph is phenomenal! Can you enlighten me into how you shoot something that good?

How many YEARS have YOU been in this area. Because I have lived & worked in this area for nearly 50 years. The Lead Smelter processed the ore from the Lippencott Lead Mine in the hills West of Racetrack Valley (Death Valley). The Huson Mill processed ore from the Mine that I purchased from Mrs. Huson several years after the death of her husband, as she was elderly and unable to work the Mine by herself. If you look at topographic maps of the area they call the playa either Sarcobatus Sink OR Sarcobatus Flats - NOT Lippencott Lake. These facts ARE verifiable.

Beautiful panoramic shot, thanks for posting it. I hope to hike the Telescope Peak trail myself later this year (probablly October 2015).

I stumbled upon your picture here, and checked out your work. Amazing amazing amazing.

Sorry, but the Lippincott Lead Mine is West of Racetrack Valley, in Death Valley National Park. The large steel structure on the hillside is the Lippincott Lead SMELTER. The structure in this picture is the Mill for the Mellvina Gold & Silver Lode Claim at Tokop. This Mill, and the House were built in the early 1950's by Vic & Mellie Huson, who worked the mine & milled the Ore here. This Mill, WAS A FUNCTIONAL MILL UNTIL 2010, when the DAMN scrappers STOLE all of the equipment, including the water tank.

Fabulous capture!

Great Shot! I've been to the Big Island 6 times and yet to see a colorful sunset like that.

Nice panorama. And you even got sky evenly exposed as well...
