YOSEMITE SPRING 2015

Yosemite always has a magical effect on me but the Spring is a special time. Less water this year given the severe drought here in California. The dogwoods bloomed early this year but there were still a few around when I made into the valley.

OREGON COAST

The southern Oregon coast is one of the most inspiring photographic destinations I know. I love working with the movement of water. Bandon Beach is the best.

NEPAL

A dream on mine had always been to photograph Mt. Everest with a 4X5 camera. I did that in 1999. My guide was Nima, who had been on several American climbing exhibitions, and summited 5 times. It was like a piper cub being piloted by an astronaut. It all went quite well because we took our time until we were trapped in a lodge at 14,000 feet by a blizzard for 3 days. I thought the trip was over but the weather cleared and we were able to get up an adjacent valley to Gokyo at 15.500 feet. From there we climbed up to Gokyo Re directly across from Everest at 17.500 feet.

TASMANIA

 

Tasmania became isolated from the main landmass of Australia about 12,000 years ago as the last Great glaciation eased. It remains unique in it’s landscape and animals. I have the good fortune to take a photographic workshop in 2007 and then spend another week traveling and photographing.

ANASAZI RUINS

I initially discovered the desert southwest of the United States because of the vast landscape and unique slot canyons but fell in love with the small structures left by the ancestors of the modern Pueblo Indians. These small granaries were built under overhangs hight above the river valley. The all face south to catch the winter sun. They also command very defensive positions. They were built before 1300 a.d. when the great Anasazi trading culture disintegrated for reasons a mystery to this day.
