Yosemite HDII

Yosemite HDII

I vote this the most incredible video short I've ever seen. It's the complete package. These guys spent a LOT of time out there in the backcountry setting up for the shots. Give them some love. (Click on "Yosemite HDII" to see the video. Clicking on the image doesn't get you anywhere.)

Eric Leslie, Landscape Photographer

This guy irritates me. I haven’t even met him yet and he irritates me. He irritates me because he takes better photos of Lassen than I do. I particularly hate this one: Have you ever seen anything so ugly in your life? No, I’m not jealous. Not in the least. Stop saying that. Seriously, I’m...

Scott Chandler’s Totally Arbitary Backpacking Rating System (or SCaTABaRS for short)

Sabrina Basin wasn't on my bucket list, but I went anyway. I went there because I didn't think I was in very good shape, I thought it was going to be easy, I could relax and get some fishing in, and I'd never been there before. It was nice, but it wasn't awe inspiring. There I was at 11,000' at...

Mt. Harkness Panoramic

Mt. Harkness Panoramic

On Friday we headed off towards Snag Lake in the Lassen Wilderness, but were pulled up short by a major leg issue with one of our party. We ended up car camping at the Juniper Lake campground. I discovered the trailhead to Mt. Harkness was two campsites away so the next morning I headed up. The...

Yosemite HD

Rodger’s Peak Basin

Rodger’s Peak Basin

I've been going through some of my old prints, slides and negatives and came across this one. That's Rodger's Peak cirque in the background, with Dr. Mike dead center. This has got to be one of the biggest cirques in the world. Rodger's Peak is one peak south from Mt. Lyell in the Ritter Range.

Trinity Alps Panorama

Trinity Alps Panorama

My first trip to the Trinity Alps was back when my pack was still too heavy. We used the trailhead at the head of Coffee Creek and climbed over 3,300' in a little under 8 miles to the Caribou Lakes. Today I'd laugh at that trip profile, but back then it was serious business. Anyway, the next day...

Lassen Nat’l Park Time Lapse

This is one of my favorite webcams, located at the Visitor's Center in Lassen. Compiled and compressed into a two minute video this covers one year in Lassen Volcanic National Park during what turned out to be a 200% snow year.

f8 and be there

A famous photographer was once asked what his secret was. His reply was something to the effect of "f8 and be there." This photographer, Alexander Buisse, obviously has had the fortune of "being there," although I don't know what f-stop he was using. Check out his work.
