Photos from 2008 an early winter storm dumped 3 inches of snow on the old mining town of Bodie in the Eastern Sierras. It was a great photo opportunity.
MLK Day Jan, 20, 2014, Monday afternoon on the bottom of Folsom Lake. What is the fascination with the desiccation of the lake, it’s an in you face example of climate change in California, plain and simple, no rain.
Photos from inside the studio and office of Ernest Kadel, the Principal Sculptor, at Gladding McBean in Lincoln, California.
Kadel died unexpectedly in 1959, it was decided that by his fellow artists, to leave the office as a shrine to him and his work, nothing has been touched since that era.
Many historic famous San Francisco buildings have Architectural Terra Cotta fabricated in Kadelís studio including; Hobart, Shell and Russ buildings.
January of 2013, we were driving to Palm Springs for New Year’s and decided to travel over the Sierras via Lake Tahoe and pick up Highway 395, to go south. Its beautiful in any season, but you need to be prepared during the winter months. From Sacramento, we made it all the way to Mono Lake, the sun had just gone behind the mountains, it was about 15∘F. We noticed all the cars pulled along the side of the road, photographers everywhere. We stopped and asked what was going on? It was the night before the official full moon, the best time to get the full moon shot with influence from the setting sun. It was a breath taking experience, getting this.
