Thursday, September 25th, 2014

Toward the end of last year I set out to start learning a little bit of my camera’s video capabilities and using Adobe Premier editing software.

Picture: Clouds over Mount Maclure (L) and Mount Lyell (R) as seen from Clouds Rest, Yosemite National Park, California During the first week of October, I got interrupted in my pursuit of a couple Sierra locations due to an extremely strong, early season snow storm that blanketed some areas with as much as two feet […]

A trip through the seasons

Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

Picture: Snow covered pine trees along road to Echo Summit, near Lake Tahoe, California I got home this weekend from a sixteen day road & hibernation trip. What the heck does that mean?

No More Hermit Crabbe

Monday, October 10th, 2011

Picture: Aspen trees in Fall along Dunderberg Meadow Road, Eastern Sierra, California Over the course of the last week, I’ve been a hermit crab(be). I ducked into a hotel in South Lake Tahoe at the beginning of last week to take coverfrom an unseasonably early winter storm. Normally I’d say fall storm since we were […]

Thursday, October 6th, 2011

Picture: Aspen leaves in early Fall, Lundy Canyon, Eastern Sierra, California I’ve spent the last week cruising through the Eastern Sierra, venturing between Mammoth Lakes and South Lake Tahoe while working on my current book project.

Playful Photos and Life Lessons

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

Picture: Temporary graffiti; self-portrait (kinda) after “leaving my mark” while snowshoeing with my family at Calaveras Big Trees State Park, California “Any old fool can drop on their back in the snow and make a snow angel.” – Me.

Wednesday, September 15th, 2010

Picture: Oak trees, cows and green grass on hills over valley in spring at sunset, Briones Regional Park, Contra Costa County, California When someone is looking at one of our photos, many photographers have heard the saying “Wow!

And thus goes Fall

Thursday, December 17th, 2009

Picture: Fresh snow on tree branches in Yosemite Valley, Yosemite National Park, California I just heard the weatherman on the radio say, “only three more days until Winter.” It’s so odd that last week we had the lowest, longest-lasting snowfall in the San Francisco Bay Area in many many years. Today the weather was approaching […]

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2008

Picture: Buffalo grazing in snow frosted meadow near a hot spring in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming. I just want to wish everyone a peaceful and happy holiday season.
