Oaks and Fog, Ahwahnee Hills Regional Park, Ahwahnee, California 2012

Last week, we had some wonderful mornings of fog at sunrise. After dropping my son off at school, I walked into the nearby field of Ahwahnee Hills Regional Park. This image continues my Morning Light series, most of which I’ve photographed after taking my kids to school!  I will have one or two more to […]

Roots and Rocks, Merced River at Happy Isles, Yosemite National Park, California 2011

I have been very overwhelmed with work and thus have a large backlog of images to process.  I made this image last month at Happy Isle in Yosemite, which is an amazing place anytime but especially during high water.  This subtle image is part of my ongoing efforts to reveal the Inner Yosemite!  I hope […]

New Morning Light Image – Spring Oak, Coarsegold, California 2011

This morning, I photographed a wonderful spreading oak tree with brilliant morning sunlight.  Since the contrast was strong and I was aiming into the sun, I made seven exposures with .5 stops between frames.  After importing the files in Lightroom, I applied the Lens Correction for my Canon 16-35mm zoom, then exported to Nik HDR […]

New Morning Light image – Buckeye, Foothills of the Sierra Nevada, California 2011

I have lived in the Sierra for 33 years, and I have always been thrilled when seeing the first buckeyes popping out in early spring.  The leaves come out so fast that I have never caught that moment I have enjoyed for so many years.  The bare branches of these small trees often have wonderful […]

Black oak leaves, El Capitan Meadow, Yosemite National Park 1983

John and I have been working on my next ebook, which is a collection of my Yosemite photographs.  This image is one of my favorite Yosemite images, but it has sadly languished in terms of printing it because the original film was lost about twenty years ago.  The Cibachrome lab I used lost it.  I […]

Painted Bark

John and I have been working on more scans from my 4×5 film archive.  It has been rewarding to finally make use of these images, but also frustrating to see how many good images are languishing in my filing cabinets.  I have also been placing new images on my Facebook Fan page.  I look forward […]

Foggy sunrise

Here is another image from Monday morning.  I took seven frames, each one stop difference, and my assistant John assembled them using Lightroom and Photomatix’s Lightroom plugin (http://www.hdrsoft.com/).  This was taken with my Canon 16-35mm as the sun rose through the fog.  The tree behind the big oak were heavily tilted due to the convergence […]

The bark of a Gumbo Limbo tree, Everglades National Park, Florida Photographed in 1992 with a Wista 4×5 Field Camera John and I continue our efforts to scan film in my files. Here is an old favorite, never scanned or printed before.  I must credit Eliot Porter for the inspiration as I first learned of […]
