Yosemite National Park
Yosemite National Park in California needs no introduction. I've
been a regular visitor since age 2 and still find it to be
a nature lover's and black and white photographer's nirvana.
Although, I prefer to avoid the Summer crowds.
Half Dome from the Diving Board
The John Muir Wilderness and Environs
The finest high country (10,000 feet and above) in California's
Sierra Nevada range is encompassed within the John Muir Wilderness,
although the neighboring Ansel Adams Wilderness, Golden Trout Wilderness,
and Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks also have spectacular scenery.
I think of the entire area, generically, as the
"John Muir Wilderness and Environs."
For many years I have been backpacking into this area -- which thankfully
has no roads to spoil its beauty. Since 1981, with the purchase of my Rollei SL66
outfit, I've been accumulating hundreds of high resolution, medium
format negatives that record my views of much of this spectacular
wilderness. The posted images are a few of my efforts.

Evening at Woods Lake
Most of the images here are from the California Central Coast, from just
north of Santa Barbara through Big Sur,
including the hills and coastal valleys along the coast, encompasses areas that
combine good California weather, smog-free air, low
density of population, and natural beauty that is often overlooked. I
currently live in the Santa Ynez Valley, which is at the southern end of
this Central Coast area. As such, the Central Coast is my new home range,
which I am enjoying exploring. Some of what I am finding is below.
Sunburst, Santa Ynez Valley
Whalers' Cabin, Point Lobos
Mission San Miguel
Oso Flaco Beach
Roots, Carrillo Beach
The Northwest U.S., including not just the coast but also the Mountains of Wyoming,
Montana, and the rest of the region, has some of the finest scenery I've seen.
The Grand Teton
The Grand Canyon
Taos Pueblo Cemetery
Abstracts of Nature and Man
To varying degrees, most of my photos involve some abstraction.
However, I appreciate that most people prefer photos that are
easy to interpret and that they can relate to. Most of the photos
above fit that description. Here, I will be putting those more
abstract images that may suggest other than what is literally
presented. However, it's all in the eyes of the observer.
