"Flowing below Yosemite Falls in Spring" Rocks and flowing water are two of my favorite things! I really love the textures and colors in the rocks together with the silky water flowing around the rocks. Can you hear the water flowing! Who is ready to head to Yosemite this spring?!

"Bouquet of Color" Tulips at Filoli Gardens, Woodside, California. I thought these would be nice to share for this Easter Sunday. This is a favorite of my collectors. I stumbled upon this grouping of orange tulips and the bright colors with the blue flowers in the background really caught my attention. I used a wide angle lens to distort the perspective and these flowers just look great! Feel free to share and let me know if you enjoy it! Printed on a gallery wrap canvas, this just jumps out at you!

"California Poppies in Yosemite National Park" Spring is here and I thought a nice image of California Poppies would be timely! This was from a few years ago outside Yosemite so I have no idea how the wildflowers are looking now. One never knows! I love the details in the rocks and trees along the ridge line with blue skies and a few clouds. This particular year the poppies created an orange carpet from the rivers to the tops of every hill around! Apparently you only get this every 15-20 years! Yosemite and wildflowers are a great combination! I just delivered this as a 30x45 print to a corporate client and it looks great. Please share and let me know what you think!

"Inside St. Stephen's Cathedral", Vienna, Austria.
Back from a week in Europe in the rain, snow and cold! I managed to pop into St. Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna Austria to capture a few interior shots! I just love the architecture and detail in this beautiful cathedral built in 1147!! Now THAT is some history!! Vienna is a beautiful city but will have to wait to get pictures outdoors on the next trip!!

"Big Sur Coastline at Sunset" Printing a 30x40 of this for a collector and thought I would share! Driving along Highway 1 down to Big Sur gives some breathtaking vistas!! Make sure you pull off at every spot as the coastline continues to change. If you look down at the waterline there is a arch that the water flows through. Winter days lets you get nice clear views without the fogs and are one of my favorite times to go - especially with crazy war weather we are having this January in Northern California. Love the amazing hills, rocks and trees down to the ocean. This can be made into a 1:2 and 1:3 ratio Panorama which looks fantastic on your walls above the couch, fireplace or in a conference room or office!  Let me know if you enjoy it!

Driftwood and Rocks" Printing this image for a collector today from my Rock Textures in Point Lobos series. Just a simple scene of various colored rocks and stones together with a large chunk of driftwood. I just love the textures in the rocks and driftwood offset with all the colors. Printed on Canvas this image just comes alive with the texture in the canvas it looks like you can touch them! Point Lobos State Park is next to Carmel near Monterey and is yet another must see spot in Northern California! Please share and let me know if you enjoy it!

"Waves Crashing Along the Northern California Coast"  We went down to Big Sur a few weekends ago and stopped off at Garrapata State Park along the way.  The waves were big and crashing along the shoreline.  You don't realize just how big they are until you get up close and can here the power in the crashing waves. The Northern California coastline has so many interesting spots that you can visit. The Iceplant with pink flowers together with the sand and waves makes a great setting that you just want to put your chair out and visit for hours! Big Sur is one of our favorites and Garrapata State Park is something to visit along your drive.  Please let me know if you enjoy this and feel free to share. © John Harrison Photography.

"Lunar Eclipse over the Golden Gate" This image is from 2011 - I was snuggled in bed for this years eclipse! What an awesome sight this was years ago! The Lunar Eclipse continued to change. The blue skies at sunrise with the blood red moon overhead were just a sight to watch! It disappeared into the fog just minutes after I shot this! It was worth the 3am start to our fun shooting! My image made the cover of MSNBC’s web site!

"Giant Sequoias in the Mariposa Grove" Yosemite National Park. I captured this a couple years ago during one of our winter drought years similar to this year. Just a little snow on the ground but still absolutely spectacular! I included the car in the picture there on the right for a little size perspective! Have you been there?! If you have plans to get to the Mariposa Grove, do it before July 2015 as it looks like access to the Grizzy Giant and Mariposa Grove will be closed for two years due to road construction. More info can be found on the park service website here http://www.nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/mg.htm

I would like Trey's drone, and this is what I want to do with it: I want to capture images of waterfalls from perspectives that have never been seen before! From Kauai to California to Bavaria to Australia. So many places need to be captured from above and beside! I am ready to retire my Mikrokopter drone and step into a real tool!

"Surfer Dog at Sunset' This dog was having a blast running in the water and stopped just at the right time to capture him with a nice setting! Fun Sunday afternoon with families and people walking their dogs. Sure beats a snowstorm! I'll take that any day except someone needs to give us some rain! Where is your favorite spot along the coast? Enjoy and share! — in Capitola, CA.

Fine Art Landscape and Nature Photographer who loves Yosemite and the Outdoors!
Introduction
I am a Computer Security guy by day and Nature and Landscape photographer by night.  I love shooting in Yosemite, Lake Tahoe, the California coastline and any other place around!   John Harrison is a Nature and Landscape photographer living in the San Francisco Bay Area.  I’m a landscape guy!   I love chasing sunrises & sunsets, moon-rises and moon-sets, water in motion, waterfalls, and capturing vibrant colors and textures in nature. I try to capture the mood of the scene and love how the light interacts with the scene resulting in an image that just takes you there.  

You can contact me through my John Harrison Photography website, Google+, my Facebook page, or email.  My images are for sale to individual and healthcare and corporate collectors.  You can see my images on display through many locations throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.
