I'm so glad you found me! I'm a San Francisco photographer, and this blog charts my journey in the ever-evolving world of photography. One of the things I love about photography is that it's a journey, not a destination. I'm constantly learning and meeting wonderful people. Please peruse the blog to your heart's content, then check out my website and feel free to contact me! (I love hearing from you.)

Another one from last weekend. This photo doesn't even begin to do it justice, it was so beautiful.


  1. Vista is terrific but the tree seems unreal, as if it was put there on purpose, a bit off putting. I think I would like to see one of the shots that don't include it.

  2. This is almost surreal- it is so beautiful! Now I love that foreground tree, it sets the mood for the whole image!

  3. That is an awesome shot, great composition!!

  4. I like the blue of the water and the sky with the contrast of the snow and the road winding through the mountains. WOW!

  5. Nice picture.
    Very well exposed with great colors!

    The link below is to a picture that is looking up from the lake in the direction of this picture.

    All I can recommend is that if you have the chance to shoot this on a clear moonless night TAKE IT!

  6. The snow color is too blue for me. You can tell how blue it is by comparing it to the color of the web page background, which is very white. I often have this problem myself. I can correct the snow color, but then everyting else is wrong.What would you do?


  7. Beautiful view. I know what you mean by the photo not doing the scene justice. I just got back from a 5 day photo shoot in Southern Utah which included two national parks and there is no way you can capture the grandeur and translate it to a blog. I like the tree, with it's unique lighting there on the right. I do have to agree about the snow being a little blue, but the sky is very blue and that is reflected off the snow. It is tricky to get the snow to be true white. Like one of the previous commenters said, having a white background on the blog accentuates the blue cast on the snow.

  8. I actually don't mind the blue cast so much here, as it makes the photo feel a little 'colder' to me.

    That being said, what would I do to get around the blue snow? Probably selectively desaturate the snow, either in Lightroom or Photoshop. It's actually really easy to do in Lightroom with the adjustment brush, you can just paint negative saturation on where you want it.

  9. This is a absolutely beautiful image with perfect composition.


I love comments! I read and cherish every single one. Go ahead, make my day.
