Half Dome, Yosemite, Sunrise

Since the beginning of lockdown, I have, over on Instagram, being posting a picture a day from my archive and occasional newly taken pictures. This is the 100th picture I posted. It’s sunrise over Glacier Point in Yosemite National Park. Pre-dawn we had struck our campsite, packed up and drove the forty minutes to this point and set up gear. The sunrise was spectacular but the pictures not so much. When I got home,I ignored this image as lens flare as it’s not “allowed” in landscape photography but when I trawled back through my archiveI really liked this picture. There is something of the breaking day and the promise of everything clean and new and full of opportunity about it.

My first instructional video on YouTube

I have recently (March 2020) started a YouTube channel.  In coming months I will be adding short instructional videos about:

  • Lightroom and Photoshop techniques and workflow
  • Theatre photography
  • Gig photography
  • Portraits and family photography
  • Wedding photography
  • Travel photography
  • Landscape and seascape photography

So if you followed my last blog, you will know I’ve been playing around a new “darkroom” system and using USA pics to try it out.  Here is a shot I took on Shenandoah’s Skyline Drive at sunrise earlier this year.  It was a truly remarkable drive and I hope I get back again sometime.  I hope everyone has a happy weekend.
Here’s a bonus shot taken the same morning.
