Holiday CraftMorristown (NJ) this weekend-My last show of 2016

Just a quick reminder that this weekend, Fri-Sun Dec, 9-11, 2016, I will be at the Holiday CraftMorristown (NJ) Art Show. If you did not have a chance to make it out to any of my earlier shows this year, this will be my final photographic exhibit of 2016.

It’s been two years since I was last at CraftMorristown, so I hope you can join me as I exhibit some of my most recent photographic work. I am very excited for this show as I will have 22 new extra-large framed pictures printed on aluminum. If you have not seen metal prints before you will be amazed at the color, depth and dimension. I will also have many new matted prints, and a new notecard series.

If you have pre-ordered prints I will have them waiting at the exhibit. If you would like to pre-order an item, please send an email to me.

The show this weekend will be at the Morristown Armory, Western Avenue, Morristown, NJ. Show hours are Friday 4-8, Saturday 10-6 and Sunday 11-5. For more details go to http://www.artrider.com/holiday-craftmorristown-2016

This is a great pre-holiday event with over 150 artists. I hope you can come out this weekend.

The Open Championship at Royal Troon

Today marks the start of the playing of the 145th Open Championship. This year, the championship is being held for the 9th time at Royal Troon, set along the coastline of western Scotland. Several years ago, I had a chance to play and photograph (at the same time) Royal Troon. Playing golf while wearing a photo backpack is quite a challenge!! One of the most notable holes at Royal Troon (and in the world!) is the 8th, a very short 123 yards famously known as the Postage Stamp. See attached for a view from the tee. It was all a very memorable experience.

It’s Springtime!

Flowers are blooming, birds are chirping, the trees are budding and it was time that I gave my website a complete overhaul! Out is Flash, in is HTML. Load up time should now be somewhat instantaneous. Automated slideshows are gone, the music has been removed and navigation throughout the website will be much, much simpler. There are many new images presented and several of the older galleries have been also updated. As a result of the switch to HTML based coding, the images themselves will also look a lot better!! All good.

Also, I will be part of three upcoming art shows this fall and early winter. I will be at Lyndhurst (NY) in late September, Westport (CT) in November and Morristown (NJ) in December. I will be sending out more info on these and other plans I have later this summer.

So, if you haven’t been to my website lately maybe now is a good time. Go to www.LermanPhoto.com

Big Bend National Park-The End of the Road

With White Sands, NM in the rear view mirror it was next off to Big Bend National Park in the southwest section of Texas.  A short drive of just under 400 miles.  

Big Bend National Park is named after its southern boundary where the Rio Grande makes a large bend along the Texas-Mexico border. The park covers over 800,000 acres and is the largest protected area of Chihuahuan Desert and ecology in the United States.  When you drive through the park you begin to scratch your head and wonder whether you are actually in Texas.  The topography ranges from desert plains, to volcanic rock to the Chisos Mountains rising to almost 8,000 feet.

We spent a few days hiking some of the mountain trails ultimately reaching some magnificent vistas.  Late one day we headed south to Santa Elena Canyon through which the Rio Grande runs and where you are just yards away from Mexico. As the sun goes down, the canyon walls light up, giving you a sense that it is a magical place.

All in all, Big Bend is one of the most interesting places I have explored.  It was a fitting end to a memorable and long road trip (20 days, 3,536 driving miles and a lot of protein bars). Glad to be back home.

Enjoy

White Sands, NM-The Road Trip Continues...

After spending almost a weeks’ time in the Eastern Sierras, the plan was to move on to my next destination, White Sands, NM.  It was almost an 1,100 mile drive for me to get to White Sands so I split the drive over two days and spent the night in a motel in Kingman, AZ.  I think I was the only person staying at the motel for that night.  Once in White Sands I met up with my good friend, Dave B, who I have traveled with before on some photographic journeys.

White Sands, NM is famous for a missile testing base but it is equally known for being the largest (275 square miles) gypsum dune field in the world.  White Sands National Monument is a World Heritage Site located in the Tularosa Basin mountain area.  The dunes are unique for a variety of reasons. They are white, they are made of gypsum (being in a basin, they never dissolve), and because the dunes are gypsum they don’t conduct heat.  We were particularly thankful for that when we hiked one day about 8 miles in and around and up and down the dunes in 90 degree heat (yes with my heavy photo backpack on).

I was able to secure a permit from the National Park Service to allow early entry to the park before sunrise and also to stay late after sunset.  This is when the dunes take on an other worldly personality. I chose to shoot almost entirely in black in white to emphasize the textures, contrast, lines, curves and patterns which the dunes present. There was one sunset, however, where I thought I was in a Mad Max movie and it has to be in color.

The biggest issue with the dunes (other than foot prints) is getting lost.  Almost in every direction you look, it looks the same.  Pre-dawn and post- sunset (especially) it can be very difficult to find your way around.  Dave and I had scouted a few locations during a few mid-day trips and entered the information into his GPS device.  Without it we may still be out there.

Enjoy.

The Eastern Sierras-Part 2, Lone Pine and Bishop, CA

One of the amazing things about the Eastern Sierras is its diversity.  It has its alpine region, fields of sage (which smells incredible) and one beautiful lake after another.  It also includes a place called Alabama Hills near Lone Pine, CA. The Alabamas sit at the base of the Sierra Mountains, which includes Mount Whitney, the tallest mountain (14,505 ft.) in the lower 48 states. It is a range of hills and rocks which is part volcanic rock and part potato-shaped boulders.  There are handfuls of natural arches and the location was used extensively in the 1920’s through 1960’s as the backdrop for many movie and TV westerns. The stark contrast of the Alabamas with the snow-capped Sierra Mountains in the backdrop makes one scratch their head as to how such a place ever came to be.

Just a little further north of Lone Pine is Bishop, CA.  Bishop sits between the Eastern Sierras and the White Mountains.  Bishop is one of those places that you feel compelled to stop every mile and just look and soak it in.   It is no wonder that the late Galen Rowell, famous wilderness photographer, chose it as his home.  Not far from Bishop is the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest. The Forest includes pines that have been aged to between 4,000 and 5,000 years old.  One tree is even named Methuselah. The forest sits atop a range of the White Mountains at an elevation of over 11,000 feet!  In lower elevations, the aspen groves shine brightly with their golden fall color.
