Picture Peak and Moonlight Lake in the Sabrina Basin, Eastern Sierras

Taken at Moonlight Lake in the Sabrina Basin, Eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains, on August 22nd 2011 “The mosquitoes will eat you alive.” 2011 had been an extremely snowy year in the Sierra and the massive snowpack was keeping the meadows marshy and bugs buggy a full month later than usual. As I chugged my way […]

Shooting Stars by Moonlight

Shooting stars at Moonlight Lake, Sabrina Basin, High Sierra

Taken at Moonlight Lake in the Sabrina Basin, Eastern Sierra, California on August 22nd, 2011 Forget coffee, forget Redbull. Nothing gets me zipping along first thing in the morning like some high Sierra backpacking. On my last morning of a trip to the wondrous Sabrina Basin near Bishop, California I rolled out of my tent […]

The way the white granite boulders merge with the crystal […]

Split Rock at Sunrise

Tioga Lake and Mt. Dana at sunrise, Tioga Pass, Yosemite National Park

Taken at Tioga Lake, Yosemite National Park, on October 29th, 2010 I generally try to take a zen-like approach to my photography where I calmly survey the scene before me, take my time to find a composition, and then wait for the good light to hit. That was absolutely not the case on this cold […]

Lovely Light = Lovin’ Life

Half Dome and Sentinel Rocks from Columbia Rock, Yosemite National Park

Taken from Columbia Rock in Yosemite National Park on May 14th, 2010 I once heard that 85% of visitors to Yosemite never get more then a quarter-mile from their vehicles. Incredible, I know, but it means that even with just a little bit of extra effort you can get to places that not that many […]

Room with a View

Nevertheless, that’s what I set out to do this evening in May. […]

In the Presence of Giants

Tenaya Lake, Pywiack dome, Medlicott Dome, Yosemite National Park

Taken near Olmstead Point, Yosemite National Park on August 31st, 2009 Slightly less visited, but no less dramatic than Yosemite Valley, Tenaya Lake is a classic high Sierra lake: tranquil blue waters surrounded my massive granite monoliths. After a short backpacking trip to Cathedral Lakes, I was headed home along highway 120 when the smoky, […]

Cathedral Peak

Cathedral Peak, Tuolumne Meadows, Yosemite National Park

Read The Story Buy A Print The Story Behind This Photograph: Taken at Upper Cathedral Lake, Yosemite National Park on August 30th, 2009 Living and working at sea level makes life tricky in the high country. Even though this was my second day of backpacking at the Cathedral Lakes, and should have been somewhat acclimated […]

Lofty Heights

Chiswell Islands and jagged mountains in Resurrection Bay, Seward, Alaska

Taken near the Chiswell Islands, Resurrection Bay, Alaska, on August 16th, 2009 Alaska is one of those surreal places of the planet: a place that has scenery so breathtaking it seems impossible. The peaks in Resurrection Bay aren’t particularly high, but their sharp spires and glacier-covered flanks make them seem unassailable. I wanted to enhance […]

Lenticular Masquerade

Lenticular cloud and lupines, Gareloi Volcano, Aleutian Islands, Alaska

Taken on Gareloi Volcano, Aleutian Islands, Alaska on June 24th, 2009 Gareloi Island has clouds like no place else I’ve ever been. Clouds of all shapes, sizes, layers, and colors. Lenticular clouds formed above neighboring Tanaga Volcano constantly, but despite the similarities between Tanaga and Gareloi, we never had any lenticulars, just clouds like this […]

Aleutian Afternoon

Gareloi Volcano, Aleutian Islands, Alaska

Taken near the summit of Gareloi Volcano, Aleutian Islands, Alaska on July 23rd, 2009 A slog. That’s what the trek up to the top of Gareloi Volcano was: a vertical mile of knee-high grass, treacherous talus, and shifting snow. And despite my group’s steady pace, the summit never seemed to get any closer. When we […]

Garnet Lake in the high Sierra, with its clear, clean waters, pond-studded granite peninsulas, […]
