I am thrilled to announce that I will be co-leading a special seminar/workshop with National Geographic Photographer Jonathan Kingston and special guest lecturers and former National Geographic photographers, Dewitt Jones and Rikki Cooke. We expect this workshop to fill quickly, so don’t hesitate to get a deposit in to hold your spot!  Come on, Hawaii in December?!?!  This is gonna be fun! I have a link on my WORKSHOP page or you can find all of the details here on Jonathan’s site.    

About the blog image. As we made our way into Death Valley, it was sleeting!  Yes, sleeting at 2,000 feet above the valley floor.  We pulled over for this shot as we could see rain falling in the valley.  It was a simple hand held grab shot with my Fuji X-E2.  I really didn’t think much of it, however, with the focus of the tour being B&W, I decided to play and was happy I did.  

Thank you the kind response to my last post about connecting. Seems like it resonated with many.

    If I were to try standing in the road to ‘play’, they would be scraping me off the side of the road or the grill of an 18 wheeler. I guess there’s something to be said for being in Death Valley with little to no traffic. 🙂 Very nice image of Death Valley. Also, your previous post on resonance was a true blessing.
