Desert Mallow Buds (2 comments)
Thanks, and of all the names I’ve heard, that might be the best one. I’ve heard it also called globe mallow, orange mallow, desert mallow, and perhaps a few others.

An Amusing Moment at Zabriskie Point (2 comments)
Wow, that must have been a surprise. I’m tempted to say that you were incredibly lucky to start with a small crowd for an October sunset at Tunnel View… but, still, I can imagine how distressing it must have been to have your quiet interrupted like [...]

An Incomplete Trip (4 comments)
I remember a trip many years ago when my wife and I met a “old” woman who was on the first day of a JMT hike, if I recall correctly. How old you ask? 55. Doesn’t seem quite so old now—in fact, that seems kind of young!

The situation with my backpa [...]

Purple Trillium Flower (2 comments)
Thanks, Mark! This one was a special find, as many of the other flowers were past their prime—and it had just the right sort of dark background that I was looking for.

Thanks, Paul.

And, yes, if you have been in the Valley in the winter or after a rain storm and have experienced this sort of fog, you do know and love this magical atmosphere.

The Cloisters (2 comments)
Thanks, Don. The light in this room was really beautiful, especially with the soft outside light coming in through that window and a nearby courtyard on this cloudy winter day.

About the technical details… there is actually a story to tell here. I [...]

Post-Processing: A Shadow Recovery Example (4 comments)
Thanks. We really can do a lot with raw files and the powerful post processing capabilities of today’s image editing software.

It is also true that some occasionally become overly-obsessed with “noise free” images when a) a bit of noise that might b [...]

Lake and Rocky Peninsula (2 comments)
Jim, none of us can still do what we did in the 70′s! I wish! On this trip I gave in, for the first time in my life, to going in with pack animals. (Of course, given that we were going to be base camped for a week, that we were carrying copious amoun [...]

Disclosing Photo Locations: How Much Information is Too Much? (38 comments)
I’ve considered that question for a number of years, following the advice of some well regarded landscape photography guide books, and at first everything was going fine. I could arrive at spots and find them intact, with enough elbow room to work o [...]

Dawn Light, Fog, Marsh and Tree (3 comments)
It does seem universal. I know I am inexorably drawn to saturated colors (I can’t help it…!) to the degree that I really have to monitor myself (with admittedly limited success) when I’m doing post on my own work… [...]

Taking Stock of the Fujifilm X-E1, X-E2, X-T1 Mirrorless Cameras (22 comments)
Hi, Jerry – and thanks for stopping by!

To say a bit more about the aperture adjustment methods… on some of the primes the adjustment is “old school,” with a real aperture right with apertures engraved on the barrel, and a manual focus ring on the [...]

Lens Protection: Ultraviolet (UV) Filter or Lens Cap and Hood? (61 comments)
using the lens cap is really not a bother to me. i got used to it when i was using my lx5 for 9 months before i replaced it by an atolens cap.

i really like what you said
“Using the UV filter to keep dust off turns out to be not all that useful [...]

Why Your 21MP File “Looks Softer” Than Your 12MP File at 100% (7 comments)
Yes, that would be the case – “as sharp” in terms of lens performance, and possibly “sharper” if the lens performance exceeds sensor limitations.

A better way to think about it may be to consider your final output. If you print at a given size – [...]
