I wanted to throw up a quick blog post before heading out for a weekend of Big Sur photography. It’s been a productive January so far, and I’ve scheduled the next three months with enough photo trips to keep me on the road just about every weekend. I’ll be up at Yosemite a few times–most especially for the opening reception of the Yosemite Renaissance exhibition, which will feature two of my images; over in my favorite place on earth, the eastern Sierras, a few times; and even off to the Arizona/Utah desert for a return trip to the Wave and several other points of photographic interest that have been on my to-shoot list for a long time.
Last weekend’s trip yielded some nice images from Mono Lake, which I find especially interesting in the winter, as the snow-cloaked mountains make such a beautiful backdrop for that otherworldly landscape.
I also spent a little time in the Alabama Hills, a place I always come away from with the intention of devoting a full weekend to exploring, so rich are the prospects there. I hope to finally do just that in the next month or two.
But the real purpose of this post is a little shameless self-promotion, so here we go. I am delighted to be featured this week on photographer Bret Edge’s most excellent blog, as the first in a series of pieces he has planned for emerging female photographers. You can find his piece, with a Q&A with me, here. I’m honored Bret chose to include me in this series, and also encourage you to check out his photography, as he’s someone whose work I admire greatly and follow closely.
If you enjoy looking at beautiful photos of the great outdoors, you can see my best shots of 2010, along with approximately 160 other photographers’ ten-best lists, at Jim Goldstein’s blog. He does this roundup every January, and I’m very happy to be included. There are some amazing photographers on that list, and you will enjoy every minute you spend browsing their work.
