I posted a photo of the Rough Fire yesterday and today I thought I’d post the rest of the images I took that afternoon.
After several months of my camera collecting dust, I had an opportunity to take some photos of the Rough Fire last weekend. My oldest daughter was at Hume Lake Christian camp last week so we drove up Friday afternoon and spent the weekend at the Pinehurst Lodge. After we ate a late lunch/early dinner, we
Another one of those foggy mornings this Sunday. Later in the afternoon I started seeing some sunlight in the sky. My kids were at their youth group, my wife was working, and I had the van. After walking the dog, I packed up my camera stuff and headed out to the refuge to see what

I admit it. I’ve been to Yosemite many, many times since I came to California in the late 80’s. I probably have one or two snapshots of Half Dome. This is the first time I planned to shoot Half Dome at sunset. I found a nice spot along the river and I even brought my
