A Look Back—Bodie Abandoned Houses

Photograph of abandoned houses in the snow at the ghost town of Bodie, CaliforniaMany of the houses in Bodie still have plates on the kitchen tables. It seems as though everyone left at once, though I’m sure that wasn’t the case.

A Look Back—Snow Covered Peak

Photograph of a snow covered peak near Lone Pine, CaliforniaAn overlooked shot from a trip to the eastern Sierra Nevada in March of 2006. Snow prevented me from going higher in elevation, but a telephoto zoom brought this peak in close. There was so little color in the scene that I thought it looked better in black and white.

Road Trip–Mount Shasta 2

Photograph of Mount Shasta at sunriseMount Shasta rises nearly 10,000 feet above the surrounding terrain and is not connected to any other mountains nearby. It is visible for over one hundred miles. It is a volcano and has erupted on an average of every 600 to 800 years over the last 10,000 years. The last major eruption may have happened about 200 years ago.

Road Trip–Mount Shasta

Photograph of Mount Shasta at sunriseTwo weeks in October of 2014 was the chance for a road trip to Oregon and Washington states, a welcome opportunity to camp and photograph beautiful country. The second morning I left my campsite before dawn and was driving north to Oregon when I looked in the rear view mirror and saw Mount Shasta in the early morning light. It is hard to forget the fifth highest mountain in California, but I was so focused on Oregon that I had completely forgotten I would be driving by it. I’m glad I looked back.
