Donner Lake, Truckee California. Last day shooting

So, it looks like today was the last day of shooting before I go back to San Francisco. I might do a couple of long exposures out back tonight, but that will really be it. Lugging a 70 pound camera across the United States has made me tired all over, and I’m looking forward to being home.

Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming

Today was a short one. I took three shots, the Orange Spring Mound at Mammoth Spring’s upper terrace, Castle Geyser , near Old Faithful, and Old Faithful, which I have no photo record of because it started spewing as I was trying to setup. It was a rush job.

Badlands National Park, South Dakota

Niagara Falls – In Photos

 

Connecticut

The top photo is the town of New London, and the bottom two are from the Seaside Sanatorium in Waterford. I’m hoping to get two more photos when we go into New Haven later today. Tomorrow morning we drive to Niagara Falls.

Unless of course your dad happens to… (more…)

Lincoln Memorial, Washington DC

Tonight was the only chance I had to shoot in DC. It’s very difficult to park here, and the huge crowds of people limited my options significantly. I got a shot of the Lincoln Memorial and another of the Washington Monument. On to Philadelphia tomorrow.
