Yet another perspective of California Oaks in the fog. This was taken the same day as Oaks In The Fog, Oaks In The Fog II and Oaks In The Fog III. One interesting effect the fog provides when it is thick enough is to veil the dimension to your subject. California Oaks are a very challenging subject to photograph as the branches jut everywhere and lining up an area of compositional focus can be difficult. For this sho
In mid-December I made a 1-day pit stop to Yosemite and took very few photos. This photo of Half Dome’s reflection in the cold Merced River water was one of the few taken. I like this photo for two reasons. First the lighting on Half Dome… the otherwise gray formation takes on a completely different look at sunset. Second the transformation of form created by the ripple passing through the water.Â I can&
My friend Art Wolfe has posted some outtakes from his show Travels to the Edge on YouTube. This particular video always makes me laugh. Talk about intimate nature photography! [tags]nature, photography, Art Wolfe, Travels to the Edge, outtake[/tags]
Another perspective of California Oaks in the fog. This was taken the same day as Oaks In The Fog and Oaks In The Fog II. I think this may be my favorite of the trio.

It’s been a great year for photography and as the year closes out I thought it would be fun to select my favorite photos from the year. I had a tough time narrowing things down so here they are… Honorable Mentions: Honorable Mention #6: Los Angeles Sunrise This was one of the most dynamic cityscape I took this year, but as much as I liked it compared to some other photos taken this year it didn’t ma
As we near Christmas I thought a winter photo might be in order. Taken in Yosemite National Park, earlier in the year, these trees lack the decorations we’ve come to expect around Christmas time, but natures patterns and textures provide their own rich decoration. Although I’m out of pocket at the moment and am on a shoot before the holidays I thought I would wish everyone a Merry Christmas. View More Pho
As noted yesterday my Monday photo outing was a lot of fun. I captured some landscape and nature photos that I’m proud to show and others that fell short. It is these botched photos of the day that I wanted to post and discuss this week. Yesterday I posted The Good… a la the theme The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. Today I wanted to post what I considered an example of The Bad. If you’re like me you sa
