Sunset over Yosemite Valley: A Special Offer

When I posted this photograph of Horsetail Fall and the sunset over Yosemite Valley a couple of weeks ago, many people asked about purchasing prints. Well I’m happy to announce that The Ansel Adams Gallery has decided to offer this image at a discounted price as part of their “Unique Offer” series. For a limited time you can get signed, numbered, matted, limited-edition prints of this photograph at 25% off the normal price, in three different sizes: 13×20, 16×24, and 20×30.

The sale lasts one week, ending at 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 19th. Visit the Ansel Adams Gallery website to purchase a print or get more details:

A Photographer's Playground

I love photographing sand dunes. +Claudia Welsh and I were in Death Valley for a couple of days last week with our friend Robert Eckhardt, and made several trips into the dunes, which was pure fun. This is one of my favorites, but you can find several more images on my blog:

A Surreal Sunset

This sunset over Yosemite Valley on Wednesday, with backlit Horsetail Fall on the right, might be the most amazing light show I've ever witnessed. You can read the story behind this photo on my blog:

Snowy Sunrise, Yosemite

Despite all the precipitation this winter there haven't been many opportunities to photograph a clearing storm in Yosemite around sunrise or sunset - until yesterday. The timing was perfect yesterday, with the clouds breaking just at sunrise. A dusting of new snow added a nice touch to this scene of Yosemite Valley with Half Dome and North Dome.

You'll find a couple more photos from yesterday morning on my blog, along with a more detailed story:

Waterworld

California got doused by another series of storms last week, leading to some exceptionally high water in Yosemite. Here's one of my photographs from last Thursday, and you can see more of my images from last week on my blog:

The Big Snow

About nine days ago Yosemite got hit with the second of two back-to-back snowstorms. When Claudia and I drove up to Yosemite Valley after the storms we found about 18 inches of snow in the meadows, more than we'd seen in years. Here's a photo from that Monday afternoon. You can see more photos, and read my thoughts about finding the foregrounds for these images, in my latest blog post:

A Wild Week in Yosemite

As most of you probably heard, Yosemite got hit with some wild weather last week, including some minor flooding. Yosemite Valley was closed for a few days, forcing me to delay the start of my workshop with The Ansel Adams Gallery. But when we finally got to the valley we had some great conditions, including snow, clearing storms, mist, and frazil ice in the Merced River. This is a photograph from Friday morning, with fresh snow on alder trees along the river, and frazil ice flowing and swirling underneath.

You can read about our adventures and see more post-flood images on my blog:

My Best Images of 2016: The Nominees

Like champagne, Auld Land Syne, and the Tournament of Roses Parade, it’s become a New Year’s tradition to pick my best images from the past year, and once again I’m inviting you to help me make these difficult choices. I’ve posted 47 of my best photographs from 2016 my blog, in chronological order. After you look through these, please post a comment, either here or on the blog, listing your ten favorites:

https://www.michaelfrye.com/…/12/31/best-images-2016-nomin…/

You don’t have to list your ten favorites in any order, or even name them – just numbers will do. (The numbers are in the captions underneath the photographs. Also, you can click on the images to see them larger.) Once the votes are in I’ll post the top ten on this blog, and submit the final group to Jim Goldstein’s blog project, where he’ll be showcasing the best images of the year from over 300 photographers. The voting deadline is this Tuesday, January 3rd, at midnight Pacific time.

As always, I reserve the right to override the votes if one of my favorites gets panned. But I’ve rarely had to exercise this power because my readers have excellent taste. 🙂

Thanks for your input — I appreciate your help!
