"YOUR own poetic sensibility has greatly enhanced your ability to create realities that transcend surface realities…Your images have a presence that very few photographers achieve…"
– Jerry Uelsmann, 2017

The day I received the film for this image back from the processor, I showed the 4x5 film to Jerry who was teaching a workshop for The Ansel Adams Gallery. He was so enthusiastic that I knew I had a keeper!
Writing essays for my upcoming retrospective Triplekite Publishing book has been both a challenge and pleasure to assess my influences and directions over forty years. One great influence came from Jerry Uelsmann, one of the truly great photographers of all time. We became good friends through Ansel Adam's workshops, and my wife and I entertained him and his wife many times for dinner in our home in El Portal. I even shared Yosemite locations with him, after which he created some of this powerful Yosemite photographs. While writing my essays, I reached out to Jerry to catch up. He is now 83, and still active working in the darkroom. I shared with him a preview of my book, and his comments are quoted above.
My journey has been so blessed to have connected with and learned from many world class photographers besides Jerry including Ansel Adams, Joel Meyerowitz, Ernst Haas, Paul Caponigro, John Sexton, Ted Orland, Alan Ross, Don Worth, Chris Rainier, Robert Glenn Ketchum, Richard Misrach, Ruth Bernhard, Christopher Burkett, Galen Rowell, Michael Kenna Photography, Art Wolfe, Jim Brandenburg, Stu Levy, Huntington Witherill, and many more.

New dogwood image made last week. I used twelve frames to make this photograph. I took four frames for focus-stacking, focusing from the frontmost blossoms to the cliffs behind them, for each of three compositions. Then the three frames were pano-merged to create a nearly square image.
Enjoy, and Share if you Like!

Breaking Sad News From Yosemite. Yesterday I visited Upper Cascades Falls with a private student. I checked out a favorite subject - a small alder tree growing out of a split boulder in the middle of the falls. The powerful storms that recently hit Yosemite, and subsequent flooding, has knocked down this tree, ending its epic struggle to survive in this most precarious of footholds. My favorite photograph of is shown here and attached below an iPhone snap made yesterday. In the crack of the rock, you can see a small log that washed down the falls and possibly smashed down the small Adler. Perhaps the root system survives, and it shall rise again!
