Clearing Storm, Merced River (#1). It had ceased snowing less than an hour before I walked out through two feet of fresh snow to find this amazingly peaceful sight of fog lifting out of the trees, the Cathedral Group basking in brilliant sunshine above, and strong foreground reflections. 4:5 aspect ratio. Negative #120011201704.

Double Tree, Leidig Meadow (#4). I stood in this spot for three hours one December afternoon, waiting for just the right moment as the evanescence of light and vapor ebbed and flowed over the snow laced cliffs of Middle Brother. Sentry trees peering out of the translucent veil evoke a feeling of watchful silence over their forward scout. 4:5 aspect ratio. Negative #120011201706.

Hot Creek Currents (#6). As if standing on the deck of some ocean bound vessel, looking out towards the setting sun at some Sargasso-like sea, waterborne plants define the swirling currents and eddies of Hot Creek. 4:5 aspect ratio. Negative #120020600608.

Afternoon, 60 Lake Basin (#6). Sixty Lake Basin is one of the loveliest and most remote locations in the High Sierra. I was fortunate to spend several days exploring this alpine Shangri-La, until eventually running short of provisions. When a helicopter appeared on the horizon of my final morning, I was ever so briefly hoping that it might somehow be dropping me resupplies of film and food. In reality it was dipping water with its cabled bucket from nearby lakes to douse what eventually...

Cloud-In-The-Rock, Canyon de Chelly (#7). Earth and sky meet in a rain fed water pocket along the sandstone rim of Canyon de Chelly, within the heart of the Navajo Nation. 4:5 aspect ratio. Negative #120010900906.

Autumn, Walker Creek (#6). Ambling down the trail towards Walker Lake, I was greeted by an incredible wonderland of Quaking Aspen, clothed in their brightest autumn finery. Every conceivable shade of yellow and gold lined the path. So artful was the embellishment upon the fir trees that they appeared to be decorated for an early Christmas. It is in places and times such as this that it becomes undeniable that no painter has ever bested nature's own artistry. 4:5 aspect ratio. Negative...

Midstream, Kings River (#6). Spent of its energy, the wild Kings River flows placidly through the low western foothills before its first impoundment. Low water reveals the source of its springtime turbulence and the beauty of its channel's natural stonework. 3:5 Widescsreen aspect ratio. Negative #570511003.

Ansel's Tree, Spring (#5). Though I wasn't looking for it, a familiar visage photographed by Ansel Adams jumped out at me one wintry morning as I drove along the Merced River into Yosemite Valley. Perhaps draping winter snow outlining its branches, no longer hidden by summer's verdant cover, manifested its unmistakable form even though it was very nearly adjacent to a road I had traveled many times. Because of the beautiful early morning light, I made a year long study of the tree. Even...

Reflections, Mirror Lake (#5). Do tree branches really grow up from the water? Overhanging branches from a still winter bare Black Oak seem to be reaching out from Mirror Lake's depths towards the calmly reflected slopes of Half Dome. A long fallen tree branch suggests the true nature of things. The much photographed reflecting pond is experiencing the eventual fate of most Sierra lakes - it is silting up and filling in. More meadow than lake these days, it now has enough water to mirror…
