A Look Back—Yosemite Waterfalls

Photograph of Bridalveil Fall and Half Dome in Yosemite Valley, CaliforniaI am sure many millions of photos have been taken from this very same viewpoint, but this was my first trip to Yosemite in the spring. I was amazed by the volume of water going over the falls. May 23, 2006.

A Look Back—New Idria

Photograph of abandoned buildings at the New Idria Mine in San Benito County, CaliforniaNew Idria was an active Quicksilver mine until 1972. The mine is located in San Benito County, California. It is now an EPA Superfund site because of mercury contamination and the area is a ghost town. This shot is a detail of one of the abandoned buildings. Taken in May, 2006.

A Look Back—Poppies And Tracks

Photograph of poppies growing between unused railroad tracks near Marina, CaliforniaI found this section of unused railroad tracks for the first time in 2006. I liked the bright color of the poppies against the rusting tracks. I have returned to this area every spring since then, but have never found as profuse a bloom.
