First Light on the Dry Lake
I arrived before dawn to catch the best light in this location.  There are dry lake beds all over Southern California, and most of them offer interesting textures like this.

I captured this image a few months before Google+ existed, so I haven't shared it individually on G+ yet, but I'm trying to catch up on sharing some nice images like this one, one of my favorites from 2011.

Sunset Reflection at Valley View
I recently re-edited this Yosemite photo in +Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5.  Here's the original field edit from 2010:

Lightroom 5 consistently gives me better results when I revisit most of my photos 2 or more years old.  I have to reformat a lot of images for my upcoming guidebook anyway (, so I'm ending up with better photos as i go.  I'm discovering some new ones that I had originally passed up as well, which turn out well when post-processed with current software.

Earlier Image of the Moon, Mars, Venus Conjunction
I was researching places to catch this event, and +Lori Hibbett suggested "How about Mount Whitney?"
I identified three roads we could catch it the moon setting behind Mount Whitney at three different times, and this first location ended up being.the best.

Here's my time-lapse video of the moon and planets setting:

Last Friday at Sunset there was a conjunction of Mars, Venus and the Crescent moon.  I opted to run down to Lone Pine and capture the moment over Mt. Whitney, the highest point in the lower 48 states of the USA.  It was chilly but beautiful!

Moon, Mars, Venus Setting Over Mount Whitney
As the February moon, Mars and Venus conjunction approached, I researched where to stand to catch it setting over Mount Whitney, tallest mountain in the Lower 48 states.  +Lori Hibbett and I headed to Lone Pine to test my prediction.  Here's how it turned out!

I saw the conjunction by pure luck.  I just happened to look up and noticed  it.  Brought out my sky app and lo and behold, that's what it was.  Amazing!

Mammatus Clouds Over Bodie
Don't forget to consider black and white conversion for some of your digital photos.  I'm thinking of conducting a black and white workshop in Bodie this year.  Contact me if that sounds interesting to you.

Horsetail Fall, Yosemite National Park
A number of conditions have to be just right for Horsetail Fall to flow at all, but you also need clear skies to the west for it to also be backlit by the setting sun.  It can take photographers years of trying before they arrive in Yosemite National Park before all of the right conditions occur.

Slot Canyon in Death Valley National Park
I can't wait to return to Death Valley next month!  There were places where the wildflowers should be stunning this year.  This photo is from a preview trip I took last month with +Lori Hibbett, +Nicole Sullivan and +Thomas Sullivan last month.

+Steve Duffy  The Big Pine to Scotty's Castle route can be tough on tires however.  That's the only road I've gotten two simultaneous flats on.

Uncovered in the Archives
I skipped over this image when I originally processed photos from this trip.  I'm glad that I revisited the folder!
