2017 Death Valley Photography Workshops
So far I'm planning two trips for spring wildflowers, two for fall:
Mar 1 - 5 - Death Valley Spring Landscapes & Night Photography
Mar 22 - 26 - Death Valley Spring Landscapes & Night Photography
Nov 16 - 19 - Death Valley Landscape & Night Photography - Leonid Meteor Shower
Dec 9 - 13 - Death Valley Landscape & Night Photography - Geminid Meteor Shower

My Death Valley workshop page has an overview of my workshops there:

I live 3 hours from the park, and I've been exploring Death Valley several times per year for eleven years! If you can't join me but want to explore the park, my 320-page guidebook “Photographing California Vol. 2 – South” includes 40+ locations in Death Valley.

Moon Rise and Set Shots from Death Valley
I was out shooting the moon in Death Valley last week. Rain has fallen in a number of places, so we might get a decent wildflower bloom this year. I don't think that it'll peak in February though, like last year.

I'll have my 2017 Death Valley workshop dates up soon!

Sixty-Three Earthquakes Near Bodie Last Night!
The USGS reports 63 earthquakes between Bridgeport and Hawthorne last night, clustered around Bodie Creek, north of the historic town sites of Aurora and Bodie. The earthquakes included two of magnitude 5.7 and one of 5.5, in an area about 10 miles downstream from the town of Bodie, California.

By coincidence I was editing this sunset photo from Hawthorne last night, captured on my way back from Utah last month. Walker Lake is important for migrating and nesting birds such as pelicans, but in recent years the lake level dropped significantly due to excessive diversions for agriculture. All fish including the Lahontan Cutthroat trout living in the lake have died as the lake level dropped and the lake's mineral content and alkalinity rose. It is still used for water by bighorn sheep in the neighboring mountains.

One of the largest employers in Hawthorne is the U.S. Army, which stores and dismantles old bombs and ammunition there. How would you like to be working on a 700-pound bomb during a 5.7 earthquake?

Entries for Mono Lake Committee's 2018 Calendar
Every year the +Mono Lake Committee holds a contest to select photos for their annual calendar, which raises money to help protect Mono Lake and the surrounding ecosystems in Mono Basin. I don't always find time to enter, but this year I decided to submit some photos that I had produced since the past time I had entered. I had seventeen finalists last time, perhaps I get one in this time!

The contest has closed for this year, but if you have some great Mono lake shots, it'll re-open next fall for the 2019 calendar:

Bodie-Inspired U.K. Theme Park Attraction
I recently served as Director of Photography and location consultant for a promo video shoot in Bodie. U.K. theme park Alton Towers wanted to research a real mining town for their Altonville Mine Tours attraction.

Thanks to Bodie State Historic Park / +California State Parks for their support and to photographer +Lori Hibbett for supporting time-lapse footage on the shoot

The main cameras used for the production were the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and EOS 6D by +Canon USA. Lori uses the Nikon D800E and D750 by +Nikon USA.
