Tufa with Snow

It's not every day you can get a shot of the tufa with snow at Mono Lake.  We were so lucky to have this late Spring storm roll through in the month of May.  My good buddy, Matt and I were the first people here at South Tufa hiking through about a foot of snow down the trail.  We would have been here earlier, but the snow plows piled all the snow down the center of Hwy. 395, so we had to drive all the way to Mammoth Lakes before we could turn around.  It ended up being OK because we spent some time shooting at Convict Lake, which was beautiful as well.  The snow on the iconic Ship Rock and the low hanging storm cloud helped to make this one incredibly memorable morning.

I have two upcoming workshops here at Mono Lake in mid-June and mid-July.  If you'd like to join me, please see my website, jeandayphotography.com or send me an email for more info. info@jeandayphotography.com
Thanks so much for taking the time to look!

Martin's Beach Sea Stack

The iconic sea stack at Martin's Beach on a cloudy day.  This is not the side of the rock which people generally shoot, but it is the only side where a reflection is possible.  And I like reflections.  :)

Thanks so much for taking the time to look!

Sand Painting

When conditions aren't giving you epic light and color, it doesn't mean you can't get a worthwhile shot.  All it takes is a little look around and thinking outside the box.  I happen to love the intimate abstract so when I noticed this pattern in the sand left behind by the outgoing surf, I knew I had to get the shot.  A little sand painting in the natural artistry of Mother Nature.

Thanks as always for taking the time for a look!

Yes, good eye for the interesting patterns!
There's always  something to shoot,  you just have to open your eyes and see  it ;-)

Highway One

The famous Bixby Bridge in Big Sur plays host to this stretch of Hwy. 1 on the Central Coast of California.  If you've never been, it's worth your while to take a nice, long, leisurely drive from San Francisco down to Santa Barbara.  You'll see some of the prettiest and dramatic coastline with small, rural towns along the way.  Go in the winter and spring months when everything is green, wildflowers are blooming and you are less likely to encounter fog.

Thanks so much for taking the time to look!

Spring Storm at Bridgeport

For prints and licensing please contact me directly here:

We had a great day exploring around Bridgeport, as well as traveling some back roads into Nevada.  The weather had been great all day, but then the storm clouds began to build in the afternoon.  We really weren't sure if we'd get any nice light for sunset until we came back into the Bridgeport Valley and saw a nice opening over the Sierra.  I had seen these rocks on the lake earlier and thought a shot here would work best for this evening.  Glad we did some scouting and had a place we could get to at the right time.

Thanks as always for taking the time for a look!

Yep, we lucked out with that little hole in the clouds.   The mix of cool and warm tones is very nice.    Great texture in the clouds.

Chillin' at Convict Lake

Getting snow here the first week of May isn't really that uncommon, but after three years of drought it was absolutely amazing and quite welcome.  I enjoyed the opportunity to be chillin' at Convict Lake, getting this shot as the snow flurries continued falling on this very cold and beautiful morning.

I have a number of photography workshops scheduled for this summer at many locations along the Eastern Sierra.  Please have a look at my website or send me an email for more info.  Thanks for looking!

The morning's sunrise alpenglow on the Eastern Sierra as seen through Lathe Arch in the Alabama Hills.

I captured this image on a lovely, warm summer morning and lucky me, without another soul around.  I can help you get this shot and many others at locations from Bodie down to the Alabama Hills.  If you'd like to join me on one of my photography workshops along the Eastern Sierra, please have a look at my website or send me an email for more info.  Thanks for looking!

Red Doorway and Barn

A red framed doorway of one barn looking through to another barn.  I loved how the red stood out against the decayed and weathered wood slats of this side of the barn.  It was also a bonus to have some good subject matter on the other side.  Even better to stop here at just the right time of day for the best light.  Photography is cool.

Thanks for looking!

A Good Photograph is Knowing Where to Stand

My first visit to Martin's Beach was on a cloudy, foggy day with alerts to beware sneaker waves and rip tide…not that I intended on doing any swimming!  The tide was on its way out when I got to this spot and noticed how the waves came in from both sides of the iconic sea stack.  I thought I could get a reflection of the stack and hopefully a nice line of the opposing waves where they crashed together.  After a few shots trying to get a clear reflection, the tide came up washing over my feet, and then receded leaving these wonderful streaks of darker volcanic sand on either side of the reflection.  I couldn't have predicted the streaks and was really just lucky I stood where I did.  For those who don't know, the title of this shot is a famous quote by Ansel Adams.  Worked for me!  :)

Thanks for looking!

I like the lines in the wet sand converging towards the stack.

Wrap Around Porch

While exploring the Conway Ranch near Lee Vining, I came around the corner of the house and saw this design on the old wrap around porch.  I really liked the lines and textures of the old, sun-baked boards.  The difficulty was getting my camera between the two posts at the corner of the porch in such a way as to get as much of the boards as possible.  I also had to do some focus stacking because of the wonky angles.

Thanks so much for taking the time to look!

Morning Glow at Mono Lake

The sun hadn't quite crested the mountains to the east, but there was enough reflective light in the sky to create a soft glow on the tufa stone.  I had driven through the night to get here for sunrise arriving with just enough time to take a cat nap.  I also had the pleasure to meet up with the lovely and talented, Kristina Wilson to shoot here that Saturday morning and amazingly, there were only two other photographer's here.  It wasn't an epic kind of morning, but the light was nice as was the company.

Thanks for looking!
