A Real Simple Photography Blog

I’ve changed the design of this site many many times. So often, I stopped posting here because I kept wanting to “finish” it first. Screw that. This site is for my personal photography, and an occasional random thought – a real simple photography blog. I do on occasion sell and license prints, if you’re interested please contact me.

Winter in Yosemite

Winter in Yosemite National Park is always special. The crowds thin out, and there's snow (often anyway). Snow transforms the Valley into a magical fairyland. These photos are from an April morning a few years back. There was quite a bit of fresh snow, but the storm...
