Desolate Beachscape

Standing at the water's edge during low tide, looking back to the southeast towards Fields Landing and the entrance to Humboldt Bay.

Fire!

Caught this dramatic shot at a house fire last spring, while doing some stringer photography for the local media. This one stood out to me because it captured the entire moment perfectly; from the look on the Fire Captain's face as he speaks into the radio, to the flames leaping out of the roof in …
