  • Making Progress
    on Jul 5, 2011
    As suspected, no chance at all to go out and shoot new stuff recently, but our gallery here in Idyllwild is really taking shape, though still some final setup work to do.  Then, we can turn our attention to marketing and promotion... the most im...
  • One More From the Foggy Forest... and Some News.The third, and probably the last one from this series, at least for now.  Somehow I'm picturing this set of images as large, contemporary stretched-canvas prints, probably soon to be seen on the walls of my new gallery.  Which bring us to t...
  • And It Gets Thicker...The second in my "Foggy Forest" grouping.  The soft transition from detailed foreground to the misty background gives it an especially watercolor-like style that I always like to see.  It's really nice to compose under these conditions beca...
  • Foggy Forest EveningThis scene - and a few more similar ones upcoming - have been in my head for literally months now, but obviously it required some very specific conditions: late afternoon light, thick fog, and preferably little or no rain (which makes it very difficu...
  • Granite SwirlAnother from a recently processed batch.. I probably shot this back in early December, I don't recall exactly. This is on film, so no EXIF data.. guess I should get back in the habit of taking notes:) There are quite a few small waterfalls on the num...
  • Some Old New Stuff
    on Apr 23, 2011
    I'm just now getting around to processing a bunch of work that has been sitting (literally) in my fridge since December/January, on several rolls of film that I shot back then. So, no, we didn't just get a sudden spring snow up here, although we're n...
  • Sky Watch: Arizona EveningI've pretty much finished going through and editing down my catalog, selecting and annotating images, to get it all organized and presentable for my rebuilt website.  It's finally up and running here at: www.AspectStudioPhotography.net.  Th...
  • SkyWatch: "Winter's Swell"
    on Mar 24, 2011 in Surf Sky Watch California Sunset Beach
    I guess I tend to have a one-track mind... I'm still working at sorting and editing my entire catalog and therefore just haven't had much energy for writing on the blog or visiting around. It's good though that I am reworking a lot of old stuff...
  • Autumn Eye Candy
    on Mar 13, 2011 in Foliage Aspens Utah
    I've been really involved with the reconstruction of my main web site and probably will be for a few more weeks, but at last I'm making some good progress after finally deciding on the design and functions that I want. Designing stuff for myself is a...
  • SkyWatch: Desert LightI've been struggling to clear out from last weekend's huge snow storm all week, so today I felt like a little break from the winter stuff.... This one goes back to January and is the result of one of those "holy crap!" moments when some magic light j...
  • Pure and Simple
    on Feb 22, 2011
    It's back... Winter that is.  Being February, most of you will say: "What do you mean back?.. it never left where we are!"  Well, we like our variety of climate here in southern California.  After a few weeks of warm and dry weather, w...
  • Palm Canyons: from the Inside Out
    on Feb 15, 2011
    And finally, a view into the lush, shaded world found underneath these thick palm tree groves. A very surprising sight if you have only seen the more typical views of this extremely hot and dry desert region in southern California. No wonder the nati...
  • Palm Canyons: from the Outside InBefore I post a few better ones that were shot along the cool shady stream flowing under these palms at Andreas Canyon, I thought this might be an interesting view to set up the general feel of the area. It can be an extremely hot and rugged place in...
  • Desert OasisWinter seems to have taken a serious break up here on the mountain, so I decided to drive down to the desert on Saturday for some exploring and shooting, while moderate winter temperatures are still in effect.Right in Palm Springs, but tucked up agai...
  • Winter Oaks with MistletoeThis is a reference shot (done on my iPhone!) from 2 weekends ago.  Locating new subjects is a never ending job, so when I have a free afternoon and I don't have a specific location in mind to work, I like to drive around checking out new roads,...
  • Sky Watch: Shocking YellowAn especially vivid horizon on this evening back in mid-December.  I've been trying to explore the numerous forest service roads that wander for miles through the back country around town, most of which I have never been on at all, looking for n...
  • High Desert Drifter
    on Jan 14, 2011
    Now that I live only a little over an hour from Joshua Tree National Park, it's much easier to keep an eye on the weather and head out there only when I have a good chance of hitting the kind of conditions that I prefer.  I did hit it just right...
  • SkyWatch: Winter Wonderland and Clearing StormI very nearly made the mistake of going out for a walk the other day without any photo gear.. the weather had just barely let up after snowing all day and it was still gray and dark when I left the house. Luckily I relented and grabbed my SLR, becaus...
  • Thorn Bush and Fresh SnowSix inches of fresh snow on Sunday night/Monday morning produced some beautiful winter scenery here on Mt. San Jacinto... at least for a short time.  Around here, it usually doesn't take too long for the snow on the trees to start melting and fa...
  • Going with the FlowLast week was 6 straight days of pouring rain here in the mountains of southern California ...a grand total of 11" from Thursday through Wednesday. Although I like snow, I'm kind of glad that this storm was a warm one and we missed out on the white s...
