Usually when sequels to movies come out they are rarely good ones. There are some exceptions like the Godfather 2 and others.

moats-mugWell hold on to your hats! Macro and More is BACK!!! (Though for now only one day–read on)

First, let me say that I don’t like the word Macro for a few reasons. Macro photography normally means 1:1 shooting with a macro lens. I rather the term “CLOSE UP” Photography be used.

SOME OF THE BEST of 2012:

Inside an Icelandic Church
Iceland is amazing. It’s interesting that there is so much bright color to be seen. There are many small churches all over the landscape — this is one such church.
_DSC8822-Edit-Edit-Edit-Edit-Edit-3
This image was made about 10 pm in the summer. This is floating ice in Jokulsarlon Lagoon. This ice will shortly find its way to the nearby ocean, then get washed up on a black sand beach at high tide.
grand teton national park
We had about 10 minutes of clearing light in the Grand Teton National Park to make this image. I like it better in monochrome rather than in color.
_DSC2032-Edit-Edit-Edit-Edit
This images was 85 second exposure on North Lake, west of Bishop California last October. Its an abstract of color. The white lines on the top are reflections of close by aspen trees.
Paoluse12_02
Sunset in the Palouse region of Eastern Washington.
fisherman of trillium lake, oregon
This image breaks almost all the rules of photography. It’s a lone fisherman on Trillium Lake, Oregon on a very foggy morning.
LANP_ANZA1_121103_2653
My good friend Greg Duncan and I ventured up into the badlands of Anza Borrego State Park, in southern California and captured an interesting sunrise. The pink sky coated the badlands with some very interesting light.

hoa river, olympic national park
Walking back to the truck, in a secret spot I like to go to in Olympic NP, I saw this tree hanging over the water close by Hoa River. Using a slow shutter speed gave the water an interesting affect.
sunrise at mono lake, california
For me, it takes a lot to get excited over a sunrise at Mono Lake, California. this morning I was excited!
iceland highlands
…. back to Iceland—this is a 5 stitch panorama of a lake in the Highlands of Iceland.
Landmannalaugar, The rhodolite mountains, iceland
…. and finally 2 images from my favorite location in Iceland, Landmannalaugar, The rhodolite mountains, carpets of moss covered lava and landscape is like nowhere else.The highlands of iceland
