Beyond Human Scale

One of the big reasons I wanted to go to Northern California is to experience the redwoods. Sure, I'd been in forests in Big Sur. Alfred Molera and Garapatta State Parks, but those groves, while precious, are small and made up of all new growth. I wanted the big forests and if I got lucky,... Continue Reading →

Go Cave!

Yeah. It's been a dog's age. I know. I'm a bad blogger. If you can guess the band that I snagged the post title from, you get...uh pictures of caves. Anyway, here's more from the Oregon/California trip. After Crater Lake, we decided to head to Lava Beds National Monument. For some reason we had it... Continue Reading →

I’m Back

Didja miss me? Yes it's true. I'm a bad blogger. Autumn is almost over (well photographically speaking) and I haven't posted ONE shot yet. Haven't even posted anything from my California trip either. Considering I was inspirationally and creatively pooped out was part of the problem. Several times I didn't even bother taking the camera... Continue Reading →

Challenging was the watchword for this vacation.  Between the weather and the accessibility issues, my photography skills were put to the test.  Sometimes I passed, sometimes I failed, but overall it was a good trip.  I just heard a weather update for the Eastern Sierras and the...

Big Sur in Bloom

Back to California we go. This time Big Sur.  I've been through Big Sur before on the famous US1 highway that hugs the Pacific coastline.  We even stayed at the impossibly posh Post Ranch Inn a few years ago and got to take one of the hotel Lexus convertibles out.  Very cool.  But it was...
