Unfortunately, I haven't had time to visit nearby Yosemite National Park to try out my new ‪#‎SonyA7R2‬, but from all I can see so far, the camera is meeting my expectations with high resolution and amazing dynamic range.
One of my favorite ‪#‎athome‬ subjects are these colorful stones, which I been photographing for many years. Enjoy, and please Share if you Like!

What keeps me going after 31 years as a freelance photographer, through the ups and downs of uncertain income and economies, the erosion of photography values in the face of the digital deluge?
"Hello William,
For the past 10 days we have been in the neonatal intensive care unit in XXX with our new daughter. In our room is your image "Rocky Mountain Cascade". As wilderness travelers and ecologically minded people, we have really appreciated the image, in a largely windowless hospital.
XXX is coming home today. She is doing well. But before we left I am wanting to know where this falls is. I am hoping you can help. Maybe someday we will bring XXX to it."

Here is new image, taken Thursday, of dogwood and the Merced River. I recently posted an image of the same branch taken last year on April 24, while this image was taken on April 2. I was shocked to see how low the river is now, many feet lower than usual, and so the river flow changes the background dramatically.
I love to catch the dogwood when they first pop out, before the leaves unfold. You might enjoy reading my Outdoor Photographer Magazine column on photographing dogwood in Yosemite National Park published in 2010: http://www.outdoorphotographer.com/…/on-landscape/dancing-d…

Here is more video from my interview sessions with Kevin Raber and Chris Sanderson from Luminous Landscape!
https://luminous-landscape.com/shooting-with-the-masters-w…/

Kevin writes: "We continue with the Masters Series with William Neill. William is a frequent contributor on LuLa as well as a regular writer for Outdoor Photographer. Two years ago I asked William to join us on a LuLa Antarctica trip where I got to chat with him and watch how he approached that particular environment. William has shared a number of those images with our readers in a recent article, Antarctica Dreams. It was on this trip that I hatched the idea of doing this series.
Several months later Chris Sanderson and I caught up with William and spent five days with him in Yosemite Valley and surrounding locations. We were challenged with brilliant blue skies and sunny days—not my favorite light to shoot in. It was a valuable experience to see how William met these challenges."

For a long time I have wanted to do a continuing series about well-known photographers and how they approach their craft. My concept was to shoot with respected contemporary photographers and through conversations, both in the field and afterward, learn more about their history, success and philosophy toward their craft. We continue with the Masters Series with [Read More]

+William Neill +Luminous Landscape  At a dollar a month, the Luminous Landscape subscription is well worth it to watch these videos.  I've been a member since the LLVJ's were first coming out and you can't beat the content Michael and Kevin have put out over the years! Keep up the good work guys!

I am happy to announce the publication of my new ebook,Antarctic Dreams, in digital form. As many of you know, I traveled to Antarctica in January 2014, and it is rewarding to have finally produced a portfolio of my favorite images. The book was designed in Adobe Lightroom, with file sizes that have been optimized to preserve the high resolution images files. The quality of the images really comes to life on screen. I know that this isn’t the same tactile experience of holding a book in hand, but it’s hard to dismiss the vivid quality one can enjoy on screen.
Antarctic Dreams - Digital Edition is delivered as two PDF files. One PDF contains single pages for viewing on an iPad, tablet, or other digital device and so is optimized for viewing the individual images, as well as for reading text. The second PDF shows the two-page spreads, allowing you to enjoy the book as it was originally designed.

WILLIAM NEILL: Antarctic Dreams

September 19 – November 15, 2015

Opening Reception on Saturday, September 19th from 4:00 – 6:00pm

at the Weston Gallery in Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA
 

I am pleased to announce that an exhibit of my photographs, entitled Antarctic Dreams, will be shown at the prestigious Weston Gallery in Carmel, California. The show begins on September 19 and will run through November 15. I will be attending the opening reception on the 19th from 4:00PM to 6:00PM. If you are in the area, I hope you will come see my prints and say hello!

In January of 2014, I traveled to the Antarctic Peninsula with a photographic workshop tour as an instructor. I have collected my favorite images for the exhibit and spent the last several weeks making the fine art prints. This will be the first time I’ve shown this body of work and I am excited in sharing them. Through these images, I hope to inspire others to learn more about the conservation issues in Antarctica regarding the impact of climate change.

With all of the thunderstorm activity in my area of the Sierra Nevada, I thought I'd repost a lightening image taken in Sept of 2013. This was a very lucky capture as I did not use a trigger device but caught the lightning during a 7 stop auto bracket.
Enjoy, and Share if you Like!
