If You Can’t Say Anything Nice… (Morning Musings 12/20/14) (3 comments)
lol at the comments ^^^ :D

It’s always a good reminder! That’s the wonderful thing about social media – you get to choose who you follow or don’t follow. […]

Lake and Pinnacles, Evening (2 comments)
You are welcome! Those memories are fun — even those associated with things like awful storms. I also have quite a few associated with that particular place, including a storm related one. Some years ago a small group of friends and I did 9-day tri […]

Marty, I’m always kind of surprised to find out how many other people have a relationship with this peak… and how many were also cyclists!

Sunset Light and Talus Slope (2 comments)
Doug, those moments of deep quiet and peace are some of the most precious in the back-country. I have had several that stick with me decades later and which I turn over in my mind still, savoring them and trying to understand exactly what they are an […]

I also did not know about them until I started visiting the wildlife refuges a few years back, but since then I have seen them frequently. Maybe you will, too, now!

Disclosing Photo Locations: How Much Information is Too Much? (41 comments)
Jao, thanks for commenting. I agree with your point about tension between disclosing and protecting. Most of us who think about this don’t take either of the extreme positions — don’t reveal everything and don’t refuse to reveal anything. As with […]

Misplaced Focus (Morning Musings 12/3/14) (2 comments)
Thanks, Jackson. Galen’s photography provides lots of evidence about this point. I’ve visited the Mountain Light Gallery as well, and if you look closely it is not hard to see the technical “flaws” in some of his photographs. However… these flaws a […]

How Difficult Was That Photograph? And Who Cares? (Morning Musings 11/22.14) (8 comments)
Images which accompany words may enhance a story, just as words which accompany an image may enhance a photograph. But in the end, neither should affect the success of the other.

Most non-photographers will not care how you captured an image, tho […]

Edward Weston Darkroom (2 comments)
Members of the Weston family live there today… and they actually rent one of the “cabins” on the property to guests. I don’t have any direct information about it, but here is a place to start: http://www.kimweston.com/wildcat-hill/stay-over-at-wild […]

Too Many Utah Photographs? (Morning Musings for 11/12/14) (1 comments)
Love the “macked crud” shot! (I have a gadzillion of them, too, but not as good as this one!)

I also have a double-gadzillion Utah / Desert Southwest shots – I’m almost OCD about capturing every little detail and angle.

Like your perspective, G […]

Seeing Without Seeing (Morning Musings 10/14/14) (2 comments)
Dusty, I think you touch on a lot of important ideas in your post.

When I wrote the article about “Seeing Without Seeing,” I was aware that my focus was on what was being missed rather than on what is potentially being gained. (I briefly alluded t […]

Green and Yellow Aspens (2 comments)
Good morning, Blake.

The aspen color show in California will be over by then, I’m afraid. It started almost two weeks ago, and probably has another week to go before most of the low elevation aspen color runs out. As you point out, there are other s […]

Glacial Erratics, Cathedral Range (4 comments)
Thank you, Gary. This was a productive little spot for me, as more than one of the recent photographs were made on this ridge. This shot almost didn’t happen. Just as I got set up a cloud far to the west blocked the sun. It looked like it might break […]

Sierra Nevada Fall Color Season – Coming Sooner Than You Think! (29 comments)
Thanks for that report, Ronald. I haven’t been up since mid-September, but I’m hoping to make a visit soon — so the update is very helpful.

Conway Summit is one of the more spectacular locations in the eastern Sierra, and it sounds like you timed […]

Camera Gear… and Baseball (Morning Musings 10/3/14) (4 comments)
Thanks, Jean. Sony looks (at the moment) to be cornering a good part of the sensor market. When you mention Pentax… I’m quite intrigued by the Pentax 645z “mini MF” body with the 50MP 33mm x 44mm sensor… made by Sony!

I still need a DSLR, so I […]

Absolutely. In the same way that John Sexton is sometimes known as “Mr. Zone,” perhaps we should start calling Charlie “Mr. Curve.” ;-)

What’s With the Daily Photographs? (Morning Musings 9/28/14) (2 comments)
Ernie, although I typically queue up the photographs ahead of time, a bit of manual intervention is often required when they appear on social media sites — and my typical ritual is to get up very early, stumble in the semi-darkness to the kitchen, […]

Social Media and the Death of the Web (Morning Musings 9/27/14) (4 comments)
Hi Sean:

I’m with you in acknowledging that social media have brought me in contact with many, many wonderful people that I might not otherwise have gotten to know. I’ve always been a fan to the positive potential of these things, right from my fi […]

Only As Good As Your Poorest Picture? (Morning Musings 9/26/14) (3 comments)
“The perfect is the enemy of the good” embodies a very important point for life in general — not just photography. Behind it is a belief that perfection is actually an unrealistic and, frankly, impossible goal.

A much better and more useful on […]
