The night before we drove home from Bishop, Mary convinced me to “sleep-in” until 7 AM because there was not going to be any good sky the next morning. We decided we would photograph the Alabama Hills the next morning in infrared. Our “go-to” sunny day solution. Here is what we made. Continue reading →
We just stayed in Bishop for a long three day weekend to capture fall color in the Eastern Sierra Nevada, the first weekend in October. We made photos at Convict Lake for two sunrises. Thankfully, it was not that cold and not that crowded. Here is what you might see. Continue reading →
While we were in Bishop Oct 6-8, I knew we would have two mornings of moon sets. Though the sunrise and sunset times change only a minute or so each day, the moon set changes as much as an hour each day. On Oct 7, I figured we could get the moon setting over Mono Lake. Here is what we got. Continue reading →
Whilst in the eastern Sierra Nevada, you should always visit the Mono Lake tufas. We had one sunset shoot there and one mid-morning set up. There were no clouds in the sky, so we opted for mostly infrared photography. Here is what you might see. Continue reading →
If you have been paying close attention here or on my Facebook page, you know that I am a lunatic (literally, “crazy for the moon”). We do not always plan our photography trips around the full moon, but this time, the convergence of the full moon and peak color in the Eastern Sierra was a welcomed treat. Here is what it was like to chase down the moon while driving north on 395. Continue reading →
Mary I spent a very long weekend in San Diego to beat the heat. We always like going to the zoo there, especially to see the Pandas. In this edition of He saw…She saw, we visited our favorite animals. Here is what you might see. Continue reading →
As you all know, one of the great joys of being a photography couple is seeing the world through each other’s eyes. Usually, Mary is tight and telephoto, and I am wide-angle. Here, we got crossed. Continue reading →
If you’ve been following us here long enough, you know that I love my toys. I get excited about using different lenses, filters (yes Jack I still use my blue/gold filter), and gizmos (like a child’s prism). You can probably imagine how I felt, when I found myself only being able to take one camera and one lens for a week in Oxford, England. I was there for work, and had to limit my photography to the transition time to walk between buildings. So here is what I learned, when I pushed out of my comfort zone of nature photography…..one camera, one lens, and the street.
Mary and I spent the long July 4th weekend in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park. We were looking for bears and flowers in Sequoia and we made our first trip through Kings Canyon to see the waterfalls. Here is what you might see. Continue reading →
Mary and I went on a guided tour of graffiti/street art with Athen and Arden last month. We both walked around with our Fuji XT-2s and zoom lenses. As is the usual outcome, we came back with different points of view on what we saw. Not sure one is better than the other, but show the range of perspectives between us. Here is what we saw.
