When I arrived in Lee Vining yesterday I went to the South Tufa area at Mono Lake after dinner, right around sunset. I brought the camera with me, but I wasn’t really “pumped” to make photos. I brought it just in case something would speak to me and…

Photo of the month for August 2015: Sycamore Stand panorama, Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve, San Diego.

If this photo looks familiar you’re right – you’ve seen it before, or rather, you’ve seen my first take on it before. It’s the Sycamore Stand near the Ranch House Crossing of Penasquitos Creek, at the eastern side of Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve.

Little Lakes Valley (7 photos, 1 video; October 2014)

Having fond memories of Little Lakes Valley from our first visit in 2012, we decided to take another hike there during our October 2014 visit to the Eastern Sierra.
Having fond memories of Little Lakes Valley from our first visit in 2012, we decided to take another hike there during our October 2014 visit to the Eastern Sierra. We started in the early afternoon, thinking that as the shadows would grow longer, we’d hike “into nicer light” for some photos (which is, in my …

Yosemite by Phone (10 photos)

That is weird.  I was there for 3 hours once and that was not near enough.  It was on a guided tour.  I need to get back there.  Beautiful image!
