Idyllwild has finally been dusted with a precious snow blanket. The drought continues, but a small amount of relief has been granted. The only one complaining is my bikini frog.

Wishing you a New Year filled with adventure, discovery, success, and joy. A fresh start is here. Enjoy, my friends.
Hi Friends and Bloggers,
Just want to let you know that I am trying out a new gallery in Idyllwild. Forest Furniture Gallery, a gallery and hand make furniture store located upstairs in the Fort, is now carrying my photography. The image you see above won the month of December in the Idyllwild Town Crier calendar competition, and will be one of the available prints.
The image above, “Lake Fulmor With Ice”, is currently the cover of the Idyllwild Visitor’s Guide. This image is included in a room screen that has 3 panels, each panel with 4 of my landscape or nature photographs in it.
A horizontal version of “Lake Fulmor Reflections”, above is on display and waiting for a new home.
Contact Forest Furniture for details. As for Martin. He’s the owner and a really cool and funny guy. He will ship.

Hello Friends, Photographers, and Fellow Bloggers,
Just wanted to let you know that I am one of the jurors for the “Give Us Your Best Shot” competition. This photographic competition is hosted by the Orange County Center for Contemporary Art. OCCCA has been in existence for 32 years, and has a exhibition space of more than 6,000 sq ft in the heart of the Santa Ana Arts District in California. OCCCA is on the list of 10 Best Museums in California, and award given by CBS Los Angeles.
The OCCCA Building below.
The other esteemed jurors are Susan Spiritus, of Susan Spiritus Gallery, Kirk Pedersen, fine art publisher, and Jeff T. Alu, photographer and curator.
If you have read my past blogs, you know I am wary of photography competitions. I will never list a competition that I do not believe in. I have had a lot of experience working with OCCCA in the past, and curated “Wide Angle View” there. You can rest assured every entry will be looked at and we, the jurors will choose the best, most interesting submissions for a strong show.
So give it a shot. Expose your work to curators, publishers, and gallerists. Even if you don’t make it into the show, your photography will be seen and possibly remembered for future exhibits. The deadline is November 10, 2012. Good luck.
Hi Friends and Bloggers,
Sorry I have been neglecting my blog lately. I have been busier than usual with exhibits and teaching workshops. It doesn’t seem to be slowing up anytime soon. To make up for lack of blogs, I will share a beautiful macro photo of a Rembrandt Tulip with you. Until next time, please enjoy the world around you.
Hello Friends and Photographers,
I only have 2 spaces open for my in-the-field Grand Tetons Photography Workshop from June 25 – 29th. The Grand Tetons are one of the most jaw-droppingly beautiful places on earth. Join us for 5 days of intensive fun, learning, and extraordinary photographs. You will discover rivers, waterfalls, abandoned buildings, wildlife, wildflowers, lakes, and much more. I cannot describe to you how amazing this experience is. Hone your skills while enjoying the fresh air of mountains. Experience freedom with a camera.
