Yosemite Winter Photography Workshop - Horsetail Falls 2014

"Yosemite Winter" Photo Workshop 2014!  Many of you have been asking - now is your chance!  - I'll be assisting on a Photo workshop in February 2014 with a Yosemite workshop from Muench Workshops run by Mark Muench and Andy Williams. This particular workshop will have Dave Porter as the lead pro and I'll be there assisting.  Dave and I will have some great things planned!  Winter is a fun time to hang out in Yosemite and the best part is there aren't many people there!  There are lots of places within Yosemite to shoot during the winter so come up and join us.  From El Capitan to Yosemite Falls, Bridalveil Falls, Gates of the Valley, or shooting along the Merced to attempting to capture Horsetail Falls off of El Capitan at Sunset, there are some great locations!  You can find our more about the workshop and signup here:

"Night Sky over the Lick Observatory" - Night Photography and Perseid Meteor Shower

"Night Sky over the Lick Observatory" I was chasing the Perseid meteor shower, but didn't end up with meteors! I did come away with some shots of the night sky and Milky Way above the Lick Observatory! With San Jose and Silicon Valley down below there is quite a bit of light around as you can see in the bottom right hand corner of the image. I saw a few super bright meteors but of course my camera was pointed in wrong place. I kept asking them to fly in front of me, but they just weren't listening! Wish I was in Yosemite watching them overhead!
