I am happy to share with you the pre-order information about my upcoming book. The collection will feature images, many never published before, from my very early years with a camera in the 1970s through four decades including very recent work created in the past year. Photographs included are: from my Antarctica series; an in-depth look at my "landscapes of the spirit" work; a Black and White portfolio; a series of patterns in nature imagery; a portfolio of my impressionistic, camera motion work; and last but not least, an extensive collection of Yosemite photographs.

The book's release is scheduled for the Fall of 2017. Triplekite, the publisher, is now offering excellent upgrades to the standard hardcover version that are only available through them and only until publication in the fall.

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!

I am happy to announce that I have a new book project, a retrospective to be published in the fall by Triplekite Publishing of England. I will be sharing more details as they develop, but for now, I have a question for you. The book will be offered in a deluxe edition as part of the release, which will include an 11x14 print. I need to decide what one image to offer, and the publisher is requesting a recent photograph. If you were to purchase the deluxe edition book of my images, which ONE photograph would you select as part of a deluxe book and print package? Please cast your vote in Comments. Naturally, I am extremely excited about this book. Your feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, and please Share if you Like!

Greetings from the Sierra Nevada. It is that time of year again when we all look back at the events of that last year and look forward to the year ahead. Many photographers have developed the habit of editing a collection of their favorite images for the year. The process of self-assessment is a vital part of artistic growth. In the day-to-day rush of life, we don’t often stop to see trends in our own image-making. By turning back the clock, we can see if we’re stuck in a rut or are hopefully making significant progress.
I have included capture details, date and time of exposure, in chronological order. I hope you will visit my blog and add your comments or favorites at the bottom of the page.

It is my pleasure to announce that The Ansel Adams Gallery is once again sponsoring a special print sale of two of my photographs, offering a 25% discount off the normal price. The two images we selected for this offer are Autumn Elm and Sunbeams, Cook’s Meadow, Yosemite National Park, California, and Autumn Sunset on El Capitan and the Merced River, Yosemite National Park, California. These two photographs have never been exhibited at a gallery or sold before. My signed, open edition 13×20 prints usually sell for $325, but during this sale, you can get one for only $243.75. Or you can purchase a 16×24 print, normally $450, for only $337.50. Most of my prints have been issued as limited-edition and are more expensive than the open-edition photographs. This is a rare chance to purchase one of my photographs at a reduced price, but the sale lasts for just six days until Sunday, September 18th at 6:00 PM Pacific time. Please visit The Ansel Adams Gallery website to purchase a print or get more details: www.williamneill.com/blog/index.php/2016/09/unique-offer-...

Making photographs is not only about the technical “capturing” of the image but also about the sensory experience with the landscape itself. Strong images can reconnect us with the experience and the people with whom we shared that time. Here are the stories behind the making of Autumn Elm and Sunbeams, Cook’s Meadow, Yosemite National Park, California, 2014 (image above)

"One October morning in 2014, I was teaching a private student in Cook’s Meadow at sunrise. As a longtime Yosemite resident, I anticipated great photographic potential there. We started out photographing with a classic view of Half Dome, but as the sun first struck the damp meadow, we raced to where the sun was rising directly behind this extraordinary elm tree. An amazing confluence of peak autumn color and morning mist unfolded before us, with sunbeams bursting through the graceful branches. Knowing that the mist would burn off soon, we worked rapidly to find a strong composition, shading our lenses from the sun using the tree’s limbs. As the sun rose higher, the beams shifted with the rising mist until they disappeared after only ten minutes. To me, this image captures a sense of hope, of “a new day shining out of the darkness.” This elm, which I’ve been photographing for 40 years, was once again a magical and wondrous sight."
