I still think half (or more) of the fun of night photography over there is the quiet of the moments enjoyed while the camera minds itself, +Jeff Sullivan .

I remember a night session with a couple students back around October 1988 where I first realized, first hand, the reality of a line from John Denver's "Rocky Mountain High" --- "...the shadow from the starlight is softer than a lullaby..." My eyes were adjusted well enough walking around South Tufa that I was aware of my own very diffuse - and VERY soft - shadow under me! The only illumination was the overhead starlight. I remember starting to hum the song, after my quiet little epiphany!

Love the absolute calm of the shallow water, allowing for a "Perfect" mirror reflection of the open sky above!!

Magic place, I still believe. After some 37 years, I haven't lost my passion for THAT place, or the Spirit it conveys to whomever has the quiet of mind to listen. Who says a "muse" needs to have a heartbeat and be cute!

Aurora Borealis This Morning
The aurora borealis was visible this morning from the dark skies of Mono County, in the Eastern Sierra region of California.  Here's my time-lapse video of the event:

Washington Fire Sunday Evening
The smoke continued to thicken over our home as the Washington Fire spread to over 6500 acres in high winds yesterday, so +Lori Hibbett and I headed north of the fire to see if we could see how close it was getting.

Mobile Phone Pictures From the Weekend
Apparently compact digital camera and DSLR sales are down lately, and it's easy to see why.  Mobile phone cameras (and their sensors) have gotten pretty darned good.

Lovely!
I do most of my shooting lately with my phones. First my Nokia 808 made me go almost totally Mobile. Of late it has been my Nexus 6 and Manual Camera. No excuse for not having a camera anymore

Yosemite With Pride
We were in Yosemite to celebrate my mothers's birthday last week. I don't think that she had eaten at the +The Ahwahnee Hotel before, so we treated her to a meal there as a special treat during the family reunion week.  Since it was a special occasion, I brought my last bottle of '98 +Pride Mountain Vineyards merlot, and we enjoyed it prior to heading over for dinner.  Then it turned out that The Ahwahnee had the 2012 Pride merlot, so we tried that with dinner!  Although separated by 14 years of age, both wines displayed Pride's excellent site and microclimate, their ability to grow great grapes and not screw them up in the winemaking process.  I miss the place; I need to get back up there soon.

I looked up some old tasting notes on the '98 merlot, and pasted them into the blog post linked below: http://activesole.blogspot.com/2015/06/yosemite-pride-mountain-vineyards-merlot.html

Photos from the Washington Fire Near Markleeville, California
The fire is roughly halfway to our house, but hopefully the more moderate winds today will enable the firefighters to slow its spread.  Full containment is estimated for June 30, but a lot can change between now and then.

Here's my new blog post with more http://www.jeffsullivanphotography.com/blog/2015/06/23/photos-from-the-washington-fire-near-markleeville-california/

The +Pacific Crest Trail Association published a useful map showing the fire's progress around Monitor Pass.

I'll put more photos on DripThat, a new app and community which facilitates the telling of stories through pictures, video and text.  You can find the DripThat app in the Apple App Store (http://bit.ly/1dhaequ), and you can connect with me in the community to see more of my photos from my road trips: https://dripthat.com/pr?id=jeffsullivan

The Washington fire which started near Ebbetts Pass in the Sierra Nevada grew to over 17,000 acres last week as it burned for over 9 miles towards Monitor Pass. We had some heavy rain during thunderstorms this afternoon, so hopefully the rain will have suppressed much of the active fire perimeter.
Fortunately, six other small fires set by lightning in recent days were all stopped at one acre or less.
