Here we come

Escape to the Coast

With the smoke just about unbearable in the mountains, we spent a few weeks along the coast. Drove from Truckee to San Luis Obispbo all the way up to Corvallis and back, visiting friends and taking photos along the way.

Summer Visits

With our friends and family fully vaccinated, we welcomed visitors from the bay and east coast to come enjoy the mountain air. We took folks paddling on Webber Lake, floating the Truckee, kayaking on the west shore, gardening in our back yard, and biking on the high peaks. Fun times!

Death Valley 2020

I took a photo course with Jeff Sullivan and Lori Hibbett who know the park and environments incredibly well. I’ve been to the park before, but never experienced it quite like this. I don’t think I’ve seen five consecutive sunrises and sunsets since summer camp, and it was refreshing to be out of the house and somewhere new. Technically they pushed me on exposure bracketing, choosing good compositions, and just being in place for the best light. It was a great experience, and I hope to be able to travel and shoot with them again.

Lake Behavior

Enjoying the warm weather while it lasts. Summer in the Sierras goes by fast.

Summer Skies

Taking the time to do more astrophotography, a perfect excuse to social distance when staying up late.
