Rabbitbrush & Snakeweed Garden – Post #100!

SnakeweedGarden

Rabbitbrush & Snakeweed Garden

Although I’m not nearly as prolific a blogger as many friends and colleagues, I’ve somehow managed to successfully reach my 100th post! So here it is – THANKS for reading and helping me to keep it going!

I found this beautiful and wild Rabbitbrush & Snakeweed garden (Chrysothamnus nauseosus, Gutierrezia sarothrae) in southwest Utah while on my return home from our early October Creative Landscape Photography workshop. Cloud coverage allowed me to shoot away despite the mid-day light, and a shallow aperture permitted me to place the focus right where I wanted it. The triptych presentation was conceived in the field while photographing.

I think I might have been channeling my feminine side here, as based on my experience, this photograph is the kind that woman will go for (my wife loves it!). There’s little in the way of masculinity expressed in this photograph, but I’m perfectly OK with the more sensitive side of my photographs 😉

To celebrate my 100th post and honor my blog readers for their loyalty, I am offering an Open Edition 14″ print of this triptych for the very special price of $25 (plus shipping). Click here to purchase, but don’t delay. This offer ends on November 23, 2009.

Thanks for your readership and comments – it’s been a fun and interesting ride!

Autumn color just days away!

Aspens & TalusAutumn is for many photographers one of the most joyous of all seasons. Obvious color is the most common motivator for many photographers. For me it is the changing angle of light and the melancholy mood created by the changing of the seasons. At least in the high country, the first snowfall can quickly follow on the heels of fall color.

October is typically a busy month for me. October 3-4 I will be leading a private tour in the Eastern Sierra for a group of three, and then on October 10-12, Guy Tal and I lead a group workshop in and around Capitol Reef National Park in Utah (we still have a couple of seats available in this workshop).

What are your leaf-peeping and photography plans this coming season? Start making them, as autumn officially begins one week from today….
