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.

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!

California Wildflower Season Begins
After catching the moon, Mars and Venus setting behind Mount Whitney Friday night, +Lori Hibbett and I continued south to Antelope Valley to check on the progress of the wildflowers, which will be blooming over the next 9 weeks.  Many areas still have weeks to go before peak bloom, but some warm, well-lit locations like this are blooming a little early.  This faces southeast, so the rocks reflect sunlight and radiate heat onto the patch of wildflowers below, bringing spring a little early.
I can't wait to get back out to Death Valley and surrounding areas when much of the Mojave Desert is blooming!  Some folks are predicting the best bloom since the epic year of 2005, and in many places I've seen so far this year, I think that they're right.

Bridalveil Fall Reflection
I'm having good luck re-processing some old Yosemite images from the 2002 - 2009 time frame, produced before some of the newer versions of +Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.  I'll leave many of the older images up for comparison, so I'm putting many of the newer ones on my +Yosemite National Park Workshops page.

Bridalveil Fall in Late Summer
Bridalveil Creek is spring-fed, so it isn't as dependent on spring snowmelt as some of the other waterfalls in Yosemite Valley, but its flow can still get pretty meager in dry years.

This is a re-edit of a photo I took in August 2007.  I produced this new version in +Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 and +HDRsoft Photomatix 5 (HDR) software.

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.

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.

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

Moon, Mars and Venus Conjunction over Mount Whitney
I was evaluating places to capture the moon with Mars and Venus nearby last Friday, and +Lori Hibbett suggested, "How about Mount Whitney?"  Mount Whitney is the highest peak in America's contiguous 48 states, and is has a nice, pointy summit.  I checked with +The Photographer's Ephemeris, and sure enough, there were several positions we could shoot from and capture the  moon and planets setting.  

Shooting the actual event was just as straightforward as expected based on the predictions.  As the moon and planets set in the first location closest to the mountain, we moved back to the next location and captured them setting again.  The sky was getting a little dark by the third location, roughly 2 hours after sunset, so it was time to head in for dinner at that point.

+glenis minarapa  Hopefully I'll make it back to New Zealand some day soon.  I spent a month touring Australia and New Zealand in 2001 and enjoyed it immensely.
