June 28, 1018 — Cape Saunders, Otago Peninsula, South Island, New Zealand Just a half a minute later, three seconds of intentional camera movement. (Nikon D850, Tamron SP 24–70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2.

May 8, 2015. Devil’s Slide, near Pacifica, California. Another hidden treasure from the archives, this one from a memorable shoot on Devil’s Slide. When I was in high school, one of my favorite things to do was sketching with chalk on black paper. When I look out to sea, my favorite thing to see is a streak of light on the horizon. Reminds me of chalk. Reminds me that even then I was seeking to […]

March 22, 2020 — San Mateo County Coast, California What a diff’rence a crop made Ten percent’s left of pixels And to pixels that were nixel’d — You’ll be mourned; but this is unadorned   Though panorama has attraction There is soul in abstraction We see only a fraction But the essence is clear   Oh, what a diff’rence a crop makes Form and tone lay before me Skies above are not stormy Since that […]

December 29, 2019 — Sonoma Coast In her comment on yesterday’s post, Margot pointed out to me that stormy weather brings me Turner, while calm weather brings me Rothko. Wise and helpful words. But Mother Nature works in wonderful and mysterious ways. In the morning, her storm brought me Rothko. Who am I to refuse? The afternoon? Well, stay tuned… (Nikon D850, Nikon 24-120mm f/4G VR.

September 7, 2019 — Lake Tahoe. f/16, 4 seconds, ISO 64. Pan to the left. After a brief hiatus, one more. This is not too different from what originally emerged from the camera — but a bit reduced in vibrancy as a salute to Jerry and Robert who were somewhat minimalist themselves at times. Coming up on a year in the blogosphere. Thinking of a suitable celebration. Stay tuned… (Nikon D850, Tamron SP 24–70mm f/2.8 Di […]

May 31, 2016; Big Sur Coast, California. After having a really bad day, we drove down to the Big Sur coast — one of the most spiritual places in the world — for much needed soul cleansing. Long hikes, good food, and photography provided the thorough rinse-off we needed. This is one of five treatments of this one frame. Many pixels’ lives were forever changed. As were ours.

September 1, 2018. Marin County Headlands, California. Standing on old gun emplacements that go back to the Spanish-American War. Sun going down. Fog rolling in. This one spent hours in post-processing. Not one pixel was left untouched. The perfect balance that I so clearly saw in my mind was eluding me in the file. But it came. It crept up on me very slowly.
