We were extremely lucky the evening we went to tunnel view to watch the sunset over Yosemite Valley as we had clouds. They make such a difference to the image. The purple tones just after sunrise are amazing.
Sometimes in photography you have to take advantage of moments that quickly disappear. I didn't have my tripod for this image but managed to get the shot I was looking for creating a mystical photograph.
The light on this day in Yosemite was truely amazing. The mist created shafts and layers that gives the images a painting type feel. It is one of my favorite images from the winter trip to Yosemite.
This was taken from Sentinel Dome on a recent trip to Yosemite. Living in California provides some unparalleled opportunity for photography. I am looking forward to going back in the Winter!
This is an image from my recent photographic vlog in Yosemite national park.
I love the light so much. It only lasted about 30 mins and then the fog that created it cleared. An example of fleeting moments in the landscape.
I had returned to this location in Tiburon many times to try and photograph sunset but never got the correct conditions. In this image everything came together. Photograph is all about light and this shot shows why
Mount Tamalpais is an amazing place in the fog and the best time to capture this beauty is in the morning. This was an sunrise shoot from a long hike in the dark

I was attracted to the recession created by the summer haze and the mountains in the background and then came across this amazing road! Imagine cycling down that!
Sometimes it pays to look a little closer and pick out details in the landscape. It is tempting to keep the wide angle lens on but I often find the 70-200mm provides the best results.

The morning light is often my favourite light in the hills. For this image I hiked up in the dark (You can see my YouTube episode here - https://youtu.be/dxlgQa-H9KE ) and decided to concentrate on the foreground and path and only include one tower of the Golden Gate bridge on purpose as thought it was unique. A word that now isn't often associated with the GGB and photography!
The Lake District is where my photography all started and Gummer's How has a place in my heart as I did so much B&W photography. I loved this tree and the parallel symmetry it creates with Lake Windermere.
