Receding Fog at Black Rock Point

Black Rock Desert in Winter, Gerlach, Nevada.

It was still a bit breezy, but some areas around the playa had layers of fog until the sun began to warm things up.  The sun had been up just long enough to highlight this range, with the mountains behind me keeping the playa in shade.  It was one heck of an amazingly quiet morning and as far as I could see, I was the only one there.

Thanks as always for taking the time for a look!

This is how I decided to start 2016.  Well, sort of.  I began the year with my very first shot being a simple abstract.  It was near or below 0 degrees and after a few short minutes I was jumping back into my car to thaw out.  It's a long story and I did get a couple more shots, but the important thing is I got out, I went somewhere different, had an adventure, and probably most important, the dogs and I returned safely with all our fingers, toes…and paws!  Happy New Year!

Thanks so much for taking the time to look!

Love the texture and light in this simple abstract.  
Zero degrees!   That's cold for for Ca...and especially for you ;-)    I'm glad you got out to shoot.

Morning Dune Abstract

Mesquite Flat sand dunes, Stovepipe Wells, Death Valley National Park.

I've had too many projects going and not enough time for photography especially when life keeps getting in the way of all the things I'd like to be doing.  For 2016 I'm really going to try concentrating on the art of photography culling through my images and processing all the intimate natural abstracts I've neglected as well as all the images I'd love to do in black and white.  Of course, I'll keep getting out there trying to get those epic wowzer eye-candy images, but I really feel it's time to get my art on.  Stay creative people, look outside of the box, get out of your comfort zone and feed your soul!

Thanks as always for taking the time for a look!

How would you like to join me in Yosemite for Valentine's 2016?  I've scheduled a photography workshop for the weekend of February 13th and 14th which also coincides with President's weekend.  For many of us that means we get four days off from work, and what better way to spend it, but in Yosemite getting some fantastic winter images!  Of course I'll be crossing my fingers for snow in the valley, but it is Yosemite and I will put you in the right place at the right time for the best photographic opportunities and instruction.  You can even bring your sweetie!  Please check out my Workshop page for more info.

Although I didn't get out to shoot as often as I'd have liked this past year, I probably got more than my share of great images from the Eastern Sierra.  I'm not done yet with either shooting or processing what I already have, so I'll be adding more in the future.  Check out my Recent Additions Gallery for 44 of my latest images.  Thanks for looking!
From 2015, a selection of my most recent efforts along the Eastern Sierra. This is my vision of the region, from my eyes to my camera, and always with a bit of help from Mother Nature.

A lamp light casting an angel like pattern across the face of an old garage.  Just because I like to do something different now and then.

First Dawn at Black Rock

New Year's morning 2016 at the Black Rock Desert, Gerlach, Nevada.

My plan was to shoot from the east side of the playa to get the alpenglow on the Granite Range.  When I got near the playa it was practically white out conditions from blowing snow and I missed seeing the turn off to go up the east side.  I drove at a crawl to get through Gerlach and decided to go up the west side where the wind wasn't too bad against the mountains.  Driving out onto the playa, the blowing snow was worse the further I went.  It wasn't yet 6 am and still dark so I back tracked my way to the road because I knew I wasn't going to be able to do any photography, nor did I have any idea when or if conditions would clear.  Besides, allowing my car to become a very large snowball for no good reason did seem rather stupid.  The wind did begin to let up as I made my way back to the east side road, and with the dawning light I could see a low fog over the playa.  The dogs and I waited in my toasty warm truck until the fog began to lift and I could see the mountain peaks before venturing out onto this frozen landscape.  I'm a total wimp when it comes to seriously cold below freezing weather and I spent more time thawing out in my truck between the very few shots I ended up getting, but at least I can say I got something for my efforts…and I think I'd do it again in spite of myself.

Thanks for looking!

I love canyon light.  Most of the time you'll find one side in shade, the other in sunlight.  I shot this on the shady side, but there was enough light bouncing off the opposite wall to add a nice even glow without any harsh midday shadows.

Thanks for looking!

Light Dance at the Alabama Hills

This is the reason why I will never complain much about the heat of summer in the desert.  The amazing changes in the landscape and photographic opportunities during monsoon season simply can't be beat.  This light show probably lasted for half an hour as I walked along roadside pointing my camera wherever the light did its dance on the edge of the Eastern Sierra.

Thanks so much for taking the time to look!
