I have a fun upcoming workshop in Red Bluff CA, Saturday August 20th!

"Creating Epic Outdoor and Travel Images Start to Finish" will cover a sunrise shoot, followed by a presentation on ways improve your outdoor and travel photography, another on Lightroom processing, one on learning how to sell your work, then ending with a Q&A and critique session.

If you're interested, here's a link with all the details and a way to sign up on my Meetup page. Feel free to share with local friends too! http://www.meetup.com/Sean-Arbabi-photographic-workshops/

Not sure why the new Google+ doesn't show all the older albums of images I created, and wish I could just add or merge them with these new "collections". If anyone has advice, much appreciated!

Regardless, here's an HDR image I captured a year or two ago at Lower Grant Lake- what a beautiful sub-alpine lake nestled below Ten Lakes Pass in Yosemite. Pure granite heaven. :)

If I'm photographing at a well-known spot, I always hope to capture it in some unique way, and so I couldn't pass this up one summer day as the altocumulus clouds gave the Gates of the Valley a different look.

I'd rather search for scenes like this than look for Pokemons.

One of my favorite landscapes I've captured in Yosemite Valley, shot back in 1998. It speaks of everything this amazing granite gorge is - granite monoliths, thundering waterfalls, and towering pines. We backpacked up the Yosemite Falls trail coming across many wonderful views, but when I hit this switchback, I knew it was the perfect spot. I waited for the light to warm and wane, for the pines to drift into shade, and then snapped away giddy and electrified.

When the weather turns, it can be feast or famine with quality imagery depending on your final goals. But if you have the flexibility to change those initial goals, then you can come away with images you could have never imagined.
