Sierra Haze Triptych

Sierra Haze Triptych

In April I did a little trip to the Eastern Sierra Nevada region. I didn’t have any set agenda, just some places I wanted to scout out, but on my return home the high winds kicked up the dust and made for some hazy conditions in the Owens Valley, so lingered a bit to see how that would affect the sunset. I had set up a composition for sunset, and while I waited for the setting sun I did some […]

Haze on Leidig Meadow, Yosemite Valley

Haze on Leidig Meadow, Yosemite Valley

One of my favorite things to do in Yosemite Valley is take in the transition from light to dark in the valley throughout the day. The prescribed burn in the valley added an extra layer of interest as the cool morning air pushed down the smoke into what looked like a fog bank at first. Last week my girls had their spring break so I took them on a quick trip, their first, to Yosemite. At least that they remember. […]

Looking Back on my Favorite Photos of 2021

Reflecting on the past 12 months photographically is one of the things look forward to doing this time of year. Reviewing what I did helps me get perspective of what I have experienced and achieved. Realizing where I have changed and what I would do differently for the upcoming year. 2021 may not have been as disruptive as it’s predecessor, but it was by no means a normal year. Yes, I did do more work, traveled a bit more, but […]

What was Lost is Found: Images Rediscovered in 2021

It’s that time of year where I look back on the images that defined the past year. My best images of 2021 will actually go out later this week. Right now I am focusing on the gems I uncovered in my back catalog of work this year. Last year I decided to revive this list and I thought I would keep it going this year as well. It wasn’t as prolific of a list as 2020, but it’s still a […]

Phantom Limb

Phantom Limb

There are photographs you plan out, work on, revisit, and refine; then there are ones you just fall into. This is the latter. It’s funny because I have walked by these two trees countless times hiking in the hills above my house, but this particular instance I was stuck by the contrast between the two live oaks and how they related to each other. This photo has been quite a conundrum for me, I think I have rewritten this post […]

Welcoming Autumn

Welcoming Autumn, Powder Canyon

Autumn in So Cal may not be as dramatic as it is in most parts of the US, but there are those little hints it has arrived all around. Like that cool pocket of air you walk through on a morning hike feels a bit crisper and refreshing. You can see some color change in the foliage (though most of these ‘fall colors’ you want to avoid unless you like itching). And the morning cloud cover seems to stick around […]

Three Sunrises

Three Sunrises

Two weeks ago I got a couple of days to myself, my girls went up to grandma and grandpa’s for half the week. As nice as it would have been to get away during my time sans kids I had a lot of work I needed to do at home. So instead I created a mini-project for myself. Three sunrises, three local spots within 40 minutes from my house. It was a much needed creative exercise to clear my head […]

Two Desert Panoramics

Two Desert Panoramics

The minimalism of the desert landscape from afar is one of things I truly cherish when I explore the Mojave Desert. These two desert panoramics showcase that perfectly. Both were taken on my most recent trip last month up Highway 395, the same day in fact. The first was on my morning drive as I was leaving the LA metro area, and the latter was late afternoon as I neared the campsite for the first night of my trip at […]

Dichotomy, Bristlecone Tree

Dichotomy, Bristlecone Tree

If I had to pick one subject to photograph my whole life I would be quite happy choosing these rugged, beautifully ancient trees. Thankfully I don’t have to make that decision. The dichotomy of the scene, with the harsh lighting of the midday sun and the clouds dissipating over the White Mountains made this moment an apt time for doing a black & white composition. I was both delighted and disheartened to find out I was able to drive up […]

Eastern Sierra Sunrise

Eastern Sierra Sunrise

When I was planning my trip through the Eastern Sierra Nevada this was high on the list of places to revisit. The whole week leading up I watched the weather forecast frequently hoping for a storm or clouds of any kind. But after the trip started chances of any clouds were getting slimmer by the hour. The night preceding this shot I saw all the clouds blow away as I sat on the Eureka Sand Dunes waiting for a sunset […]
