New Dogwood Featured Print

Dogwood blooming, Yosemite National Park, California 2005

I have been busy with the “day to day” of running my business, including making new images.  I hope to post soon, so stay tuned!

This month’s Featured Print is “Dogwood blooming, Yosemite National Park, California 2005″ shown to the left.  I created this image five years ago.  My EXIF date shows that I was at 370mm.  It took a great deal of patience, and many frames, to get a sharp exposure since the branch was suspended over a very tumultuous Merced River!  I’ve printed and sold 20×30″ prints and the quality holds up very well.
