Solitude, originally uploaded by carlcmc.

On a hike, I backpedaled a few steps when this framing of the mountain peak appeared. Circular polarizer helped. We were on a hike up in the mountains with Carrie and John.

We went to the Aquarium of the Pacific with Carrie and Jon. Not quite sure how the birds fit in but I took this picture which turned out colorful.

While we were in California for my conference (AUA) we also visited Carrie and Jon Carr. One day at the beach resulted in this picture. I set the tripod up on the sand and used my SB-600 Speedlight flash on camera to lift the shadows off our faces since the sun was high overhead. Some post processing as well to compress tonal ranges.

While at my parents I photographed the pink lillies with yellow ones behind. I used off camera flash on camera right.
