Photo Outings

First just wanted to thank a couple of publications for some recent features of my work:


Dodho magazine published a self written "about me" article on their site. You can view the article here:


EarthShots featured my photo on their site as the photo of the day for 11/26:

Lot of great photos on this site, you can check them out here:

We haven't really been on any new trips but I've been going out and taking a lot of local photos. So this will be a pic heavy dump. I'll try to separate and categorize them as best as possible.

1. First here are some left over ones from when I went to Mammoth to chase the fall colors. I did a bit of astrophotography as well, taking pictures of the Milky Way.

Fall colors - Eastern Sierras

Had a chance to get up to the Mammoth Lakes area for a weekend to capture some of the fall colors. The week before I went was the peak, but I still was able to find some good groves with peak color.

On the way up, I stopped by the Aspendell area outside of Bishop to check on the colors. Most of the North/South lake areas were already past peak, but there was a nice intake right before Aspendell that had some really nice colors.

The rest of the time was spent up towards the Mammoth Lakes area. Convict Lake, Rock Creek, McGee Creek, and Conway Summit were all past peak as well but the June Lake Loop had some nice patches so most of my time was spent there.

I also had a chance to get some night shots of the Milky Way but I will post those in a separate thread.

Hope to be able to make it out here yearly for the colors. Looking forward to next year!
