Visions of Half Dome

Wow, it’s been a week since I’ve been able to blog.  OK, maybe not able, but maybe in the zone to blog. But a night spent in the hot tub on a cold windy night will tend to relax oneself.  I think it’s the first time we used it this year so we need to […]

Valley View

Took almost a whole week off from blogging, its been a little crazy as I had to get ready for a shoot this past weekend and still recovering. Jumping back into it, I wanted to revisit Gates of the Valley aka Valley View at least one more time. Maybe I saved the best for last, […]

Gates of the Valley

More from Yosemite tonight. This will be a short post probably.  I meant to talk about this in my last Blog post, but got sidetracked. Typically when we travel to some place new, we’ll pick up one of those travel books about the place.  Which one typically isn’t important as we’ve tried all different kinds […]

Farewell to Mono Lake

Besides the 60 seconds of decent light, Mono Lake was more of a study of shadows and light. Part of the beauty of digital cameras is the ability to switch the LCD output to black and white (B/W) so that you can evaluate your concept for a photograph beyond the visualization in your head. Of […]

So the plan for day 2 was to end up at Lake Tahoe for sunset.  I had come across some photos online of a pretty cool rock formation on the eastern shore of the lake that would be a pretty nice foreground subject. It was named as Bonsai Rock because of the small tree with […]

Tall Trees

My first foray into Day 2!!  We started the second day with a trip to Muir Woods National Monument. We tried going the afternoon before, but it was Sunday and the place was packed. We figured Monday morning would be much more hospitable, score one for the good guys! So we had a couple hours […]

McClures Beach at Sunset

More day one stuff since it’s late and I don’t have time for a long post.  Most of the first day was spent at Point Reyes National Seashore after a morning drive by the Golden Gate bridge to see if the fog had lifted.  Not great light. So with a stop by REI to pick […]
