I’ve just published Newsletter No. 98 which introduces six new images, including “Sierra Wave” above.
“Sierra Wave” was created just to the east of Mt Whitney, the dark peak just right of center. A Sierra wave is a cloud that is formed when strong winds from the west hold the cloud front at bay, often forming interesting structures such as this one.
Along with this image, I’ve introduced five new “Ancient Stones” images from the Alabama Hills, which is located at the base of these mountains.
Iceland was incredible; the land, the people, the experiences…all of it including a harrowing ride in winds of over 130 mph. My car was severely damaged as flying rocks blew out my windows and sandblasted my car. At the time my only concern was keeping the car upright in the strongest winds I have ever encountered.
But what a great story and memories I now have!
I went to Iceland to create new images, but truthfully if all I came home with are these memories, then the trip was a success. Fortunately, I do think I’ll have a couple images that I like, including “Iceland No. 1” above.
On another note, the Death Valley Workshop in January is sold out. Sorry.
But if you’re living in the Colorado area, I am conducting a one day workshop on “Cole’s Rule of Thirds” at the Center for Fine Art Photography. This will be held on Saturday November 9th, 2013 and you can learn more about it at http://www.c4fap.org/education-events/
I’ll also be speaking at Click! Camera Club in Denver on Tuesday, October 1st at 6pm. They will be meeting at Englewood Camera, 5855 S. Broadway in Littleton, Colorado.
