The nearly full moon rises over Yosemite Valley and Half Dome

Yosemite National Park is one of the most visited and photographed National Parks in the US.  I spent a week of my life in this majestic place and only scratched the surface of the grandeur that is Yosemite National Park.

Yosemite Valley is iconic in every sense of the word.  It is a paradise for the eyes and soul for people from all over the world.  It is a place that bonds people through beauty, creates memories from experiences and leaves you speechless time and time again.  I made my first trip to Yosemite this spring after dreaming about this place my whole life.

Vivid reflections abound with calm water and towering walls.

There is one scene I’ll never forget in Yosemite and many of you will identify with it.  It is the scene where you first see Yosemite…

Top 10 Image Review – “Align”

I’m not sure how this will look as a low-res image but we’ll try. There are faint stars visible in this image and gave this image its title, “Align”.

This image was from high up in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California near 12,000 ft. I camped here and the next morning had one of the best experiences of my life summiting Mt. Whitney, the highest peak in the Lower 48. The skyline is as jagged as it gets and the sun was setting behind the peaks. With few clouds, my hopes of capturing an incredible sunset fizzled but these few wispy clouds blew over at the last light of day. This was at the exact moment a few stars began to shine and I watched until they all aligned before clicking the shutter.

There are plenty of other photos of the full Milky…

I read a blog the other day by MJF Images (follow & read HERE) that talked about capturing a sense of place.  This was great timing as I have been thinking about that with my images as well.   I’m challenging myself to take fewer images this year but I want each image to say more.  Each place has a story and its up to the artist to represent that in a clear and concise manner.

These few images are from 26+ miles of backpacking in the pouring rain.  The trail is in Olympic National Park and remains one of my favorite backpacking trips ever.  I saw so many new sights, clicked hundreds of images and was in awe the entire time.  I won’t go into details and I’ll let the images tell the story of the 3 days in the rain.   You’ll have to go…

Winter Update from Park City, UT

Originally posted on Eric E Photo:

“The 2nd Sunset”

I wanted to share a few images I’ve recently captured around Park City as I take a short pause in re-editing older images.  These images are all from near or in Park City as I continue to shoot several days a week.  I’m also in the process of making some changes with Eric E Photo both on my website and on Facebook.  I’ll save the social media aspect for another post as I’m trying a new approach.  The only thing I’ll mention is that I truly enjoy blogging and nothing is changing here, except me becoming more active.  Bloggers really are the best:)

“Winter Dance”

I’m thinking the next set of images from Park City will be spring images as it has already been nearly 60 several days.  The sun is intense at 7,000 feet and many days have brought vivid blue skies.  Winter was fairly mild…
