A Look Back—Big Sur Lupine

Photograph of lupine flowers near Big Sur, CaliforniaTaken along the Nacimiento-Ferguson road that connects Highway 1 south of Big Sur to inland highways. It is sometimes the only connection for Big Sur residents when Highway 1 is blocked by mudslides. A beautiful drive, but not for the faint of heart. April 15, 2009.

The sky and sea were so bright that very little color was visible. I decided to convert this to black and white because the contrast was so extreme. February 2, 2009.

A Look Back—Sand Dunes 2

Photograph of sand dunes at Stovepipe Wells, Death ValleyThere is only a brief window of time, at sunrise, when the low angled light adds shadows to the ripples in the dunes. As soon as the sun has risen much above the horizon, the light becomes harsh and the contrast disappears.  January 16, 2009.

A Look Back—Trona Pinnacles 2

Photograph of the Trona PinnaclesAnother shot I liked from the Trona Pinnacles. The road into the pinnacles is unpaved and rutted so the five mile drive seemed to last forever. I’m sure it isn’t that bad, but I haven’t returned yet.
