Revisiting Clouds Over the Kuna Crest
As I was going through my archives I came across this one from a few years ago called Clouds Over the Kuna Crest. I’ve always liked it, but I thought I’d re-process it and leave it un-cropped this time. Hope you like them.
Moon Over Mt. Clark, Gray Peak and Mt. Starr King
As I mentioned on my last entry, Gray Peak and the Moon, I had some issues with my 300mm lens. Once the moon was farther away, I switched to my 70-200 so I could capture Mt. Clark, Gray Peak and Mt. Starr King, and of course the moon.
Gray Peak and the Moon
Nice to see a plan come together. A few years ago I was at Glacier Point at sunset. Unbenounced to me it was also a full moon. If you’d ever tried to photograph the full moon and see some details in the foreground elements, it’s near impossible. That evening it didn’t go so well. Fast-forward […]
Mount Dana and Gibbs in Black in White
Last week as I was on the BACKPACKER Magazine Forum somebody started a “Show Us Your Reflections”. Going through my archives I came across several, including a color version that I posted in 2009, A Day in Yosemite. Thought I’d re-process it and convert it to a black and white.
Scale 1964 Plymouth Belvedere
I was going through my WordPress Media Library a few days ago and came across a few photos that I uploaded but never posted. Rather than deleting them, I thought I’d post these. I built this back in the late 70’s to early 80’s. The car is a 1/24-scale 1964 Plymouth Belvedere by Jo-Han. The […]
Lightning at Sunset
Our family took a trip recently to Texas. My in-laws took their RV and since we were only going part way to Texas, we rented a car. On this particular evening we were staying at the Santa Rosa Campground & RV Park in New Mexico. We were eating dinner and occasionally we could see lightning. […]
Mammoth Peak with Snow
I missed getting up to the high country last year, so when Tioga Pass opened up I made sure I was there. Took me a few weeks to get up there, but thankfully there was still plenty of snow and ice there. My normal plan is to get up around 1am and photograph sunrise and […]
First Visit of the Year
I’ve been wanting to visit “That Place with Water and Birds” since the first of the year, but up until now, I haven’t been able to. Since my wife had the day off and the kids have a 4-day weekend, I thought I’d drive over and see what’s happening. There was A LOT of fog […]
My Favorite Photos from 2015
It’s that time of year where I try to pick my favorite pictures from 2015. Just like last year, it wasn’t a stellar year, photography-wise. Always hope that 2016 will be a better year, photography-wise. So in the order that I took them (more or less), I present you my favorite 10 pictures of 2015.
