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.
When I told my father that I was heading back to Death Valley for three weeks, he said that he couldn’t imagine why anyone would go back there twice! He said that he had been there once and there was nothing to see.
This is my 10th year and I cannot imagine running out of things to see. And even if I did, I’d still go for the peace, quiet and tranquillity. It has become my annual photographic and spiritual pilgrimage.
In this newsletter I’m introducing five new images, and will introduce several more in the weeks to come.
If you are signed up, you’ve already received the newsletter (it’s different from this blog).
I’ve been driving a U-Haul moving van from Northern Colorado to Portland, Oregon for the last few days and instead of listening to my latest Longmire book on tape, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking…introspective stuff.
I’ve come to realize that I’ve become less and less productive at creating new images and I’m spending more and more time on other peripheral things such as talking about photography, writing about photography and emailing about photography.
I need to get back to doing what I love. I need to do less talking and do more creating.
So forgive me if my blog posts are a little less frequent and my emails are a just little shorter. I plan on shifting my priorities back to what makes me happy and fulfilled, and that is creating new images.
