Culver City, California

2018 has been a tough year. With both of my parents suffering from health issues, getting sick myself twice, the loss of a dog, and then the addition of a new puppy to the household, I haven’t been able to photograph as much as I would like. But despite all of that, I was able to make a handful of images that I’m quite proud of. These are my top nine for 2018 that all of you have picked. Thanks for the support. Here’s to a great 2019 for everyone!

Aspendell, California

“Photography gives us for the first time a feeling of the structure of things with an intensity which the eye, limited by its accommodation, had hitherto been quite unable to perceive.” – Otto Steinert

The Buttermilks

I love photographing clouds, no matter whether they’re complex with texture or simple and ethereal. On this particular evening, the alpine glow at sunset was spectacular, and the landscape filled with the most beautiful light. What caught my eye and motivated me to take this shot was the ray-like streaks of clouds that stretched into the sky. Obviously, this isn’t something I could have planned for. But my readiness with the camera allowed intuition to take over and I was able to photograph the scene before the magic disappeared. I like the simplicity of this image and how it makes the landscape feel small yet grand at the same time. This duality creates a contrasting interest that draws me in. How does it make you feel?

Don’t forget to turn around! At least that’s what I tell myself when I’m photographing. This particular image was in the exact opposite direction as yesterday’s image, and I find it surprisingly different. Yet like the other, this image was made somewhere in Vermont on Velvia 50 with a Hasselblad 501CM.

Vermont

There is a lot of water in Vermont. It’s everywhere! Down the road. Across the way. Over there. And right here with this babbling brook that caught my eye.

Vermont

There’s something about dirt roads that I just love. They call to me, and I feel compelled to drive and explore where they take me. Sometimes, I have no idea where I’m headed, but that’s part of the fun. To get lost and find the unknown. This image was shot somewhere in Vermont on Velvia 50 with a Hasselblad 501CM.

Grant Lake

While perched high on a hill, I had a great vantage point of Rush Creek just prior to it flowing into Grant Lake. The mountain in the far background is Carson Peak. This image was photographed with a Hasselblad on Kodak Tri-X.

Grant Lake

This location is the same as the previous image above Grant Lake. However, this one looks West towards Mount Wood as the light breaks through the clouds to illuminate the hillside. This was shot with a Hasselblad on Kodak Tri-X.
