Picture: Fall colors on trees in the White Mountain National Forest, New Hampshire. If you don’t like High Capacity Electrical Transmission Towers and Wires running through your scenic photos, or even just your view for that matter, I’d like to ask you to check out (and possibly help fund) a project started by friend and [...]

Picture: Hikers on the summit of Half Dome, Yosemite National Park, California A couple days ago I returned home from a six day trip to Yosemite and the Mono Lake area. The trip was a mixture of triumphs and tragedies. I left town fairly apprehensive. I originally planned to do a strenuous single day hike [...]
Picture: Sunset light on the peaks above Hetch Hetchy Reservoir, Yosemite National Park, California One of my photographer friends, Guy Tal, posted on his blog, er… web journal, yesterday that he was perhaps one of the last people to ride the photographic coat tails of Ken Burns’ recent PBS documentary film series on the National [...]
This weekend, thanks to my mom, I got to spend part of a beautiful Spring Saturday afternoon in a dark movie theater, along with my wife & son, watching the new Disney Nature Film, EARTH. Narrated by James Earl Jones (Darth Vader to my son) the movie has the same tone that many of us [...]
Picture: Sunset light on Mount Diablo, Contra Costa County, California. It’s a relatively short list; the number of famous people that I’ve had a chance to meet. But now I can add Jean-Michel Couteau to that list. This last Monday evening, I had a chance to meet Mr. Cousteau at a private reception prior to [...]
Picture: Non-existant Yosemite Falls, Yosemite Valley, Yosemite National Park, California This is a postcard photo you don’t see too often. It’s of a completely dry Yosemite Falls. There should be a dramatic white plume of cascading water, but the year when this photo (2001) was taken, the falls ran totally dry due to lack of [...]
Picture: Sunset light on Half Dome above Cooks Meadow, Yosemite Valley, Yosemite National Park, California This picture makes me so angry. Well, it’s not really the picture that makes me angry, but rather the memory that it evokes. Now I think you’d all agree that Yosemite Valley is one of the most beautiful landscapes on [...]
Picture: Dead fish on the shores of the Salton Sea, Imperial Valley, near Brawley, California My buddy and I had pulled off along the side of the road at the edge of the Salton Sea to take some photos of the shoreline. As I walked out toward the water, intrigued by the dry, cracked soil, [...]
Picture: Birds at sunset along the shore of the Salton Sea, Imperial Valley, near Brawley, California This is near the Sonny Bono National Wildlife Preserve at the southern end of the Salton Sea. Looks like there’s a need for a little more help to protect all the pretty birds.
Photo: Deer skins on a dumpster, Kanab, Utah. I admit it. Ok; two things…First, I’m not a hunter, never have been. Doesn’t mean I’m anti-hunting. Had I grown up in Wyoming or Montana, I’m sure I’d know this, but I’m clueless why hunters would leave these skins? Don’t they have any value? I’ve had deer [...]
