Made a quick trip to Yosemite on Wednesday to meet some photographer friends and I even took my “hot rod”, a 1969 Firebird 400. I arrived at the park around 4:45 am and did a quick drive through the valley but because of the construction, I didn’t stop to take photos. Since we were to
It’s been a very long time since I’ve been out taking photos of landscape or nature stuff. Been wanting to get out to my local refuge since the beginning of the year, but couldn’t for one reason or another. We’ve had some recent storms, so I told myself that I had to get out there
As I was going through my archives I came across this one from a few years ago called Clouds Over the Kuna Crest. I’ve always liked it, but I thought I’d re-process it and leave it un-cropped this time. Hope you like them.
As I mentioned on my last entry, Gray Peak and the Moon, I had some issues with my 300mm lens. Once the moon was farther away, I switched to my 70-200 so I could capture Mt. Clark, Gray Peak and Mt. Starr King, and of course the moon.

I was going through my WordPress Media Library a few days ago and came across a few photos that I uploaded but never posted. Rather than deleting them, I thought I’d post these. I built this back in the late 70’s to early 80’s. The car is a 1/24-scale 1964 Plymouth Belvedere by Jo-Han. The
Our family took a trip recently to Texas. My in-laws took their RV and since we were only going part way to Texas, we rented a car. On this particular evening we were staying at the Santa Rosa Campground & RV Park in New Mexico. We were eating dinner and occasionally we could see lightning.
I missed getting up to the high country last year, so when Tioga Pass opened up I made sure I was there. Took me a few weeks to get up there, but thankfully there was still plenty of snow and ice there. My normal plan is to get up around 1am and photograph sunrise and
