The following virtual gallery describes the work that will be on display. Enjoy!
Moonset on Mt Harrison
Rising very early on a cold December morning, I was determined to capture some full moon, snow, and sunrise shots on Mt. Harrison. I wasn't disappointed. This is one of two photos from that trip for this exhibit. Another below catches the first light of the sunrise on these trees from the western side.
Big Basin Waterfall III
I struck out for Big Basin in September 2016, in search of the perfect waterfall coming down out of the alpine rock of the Pioneer Mountains. While I wouldn't say it was perfect, this is one of my favorite moving water shots. I especially like the illusion of gold gilding on the rocks towards the bottom.

Moonrise Over Pioneer Cabin
Some friends and I had planned a long excursion to Pioneer Cabin during Spring Break 2016, noting that the full moon (appropriate for the Full Moon Gallery) would make an appearance. We hoped for clear skies, and weren't disappointed. I've taken hundreds of shots of Pioneer Cabin, but this is my favorite.

Glowing Trees on Mt Harrison
One of two exhibit photos shot during an early morning December snowshoe on Mt Harrison, this shot was taken from the west as the sun was just creeping up over the horizon to the east. The glow of the sunrise on the snow-plastered trees seemed to warm things up, but it was a frigid morning nevertheless.

McIntyre Peak from Big Basin with Lupine
On the same waterfall hike mentioned above, I headed south across the basin meadow and encountered this spectacular field of blue lupine, which just happens to be my favorite wildflower. Clouds were threatening and it rained shortly after this shot as I lost the light.

Though I'm not normally a still life photographer, my wife Shaun asked me to take some shots of a yellow rose bouquet I'd brought her. This has turned out to be one of my most popular photos.
