About 3 weeks ago Lupine and El Capitan in Yosemite National Park
Thanks to the Yosemite Conservancy for naming this their Photo of the Week on Friday!  This photo was taken in May 2011, and I showed this location to dozens of G+ users who attended my G+ / +Panoramio Photowalk in May 2012:
https://plus.google.com/photos/+JeffreySullivan/albums/5975845903477587441

Lupine love the growing conditions for a few years after a fire, so they are declining in this location but should be strong in more recently burned areas of Yosemite this coming May through June .

You can see more of my Yosemite photos in my Yosemite National Park album here on G+:

I'm currently working on my 2014 schedule for photography workshops in Yosemite National Park:

About 11 weeks ago We Have Snow!
The sun was shining brightly on 9" of fresh snow during a brief break in the storm yesterday afternoon.  We're down at close to 5000 feet in elevation, but about 40 miles south up at 8400 feet in Bodie, they apparently received about 2 feet.  

You can see slush floating on the surface of the water.  We had the lake freeze for nearly three weeks last year, and if temperatures drop we may see a repeat of that this year.

Unfortunately it would take 9 more storms like this one to simply catch up to the normal amount of precipitation we normally have by this date, so our drought is far from over.  I was determined to do a little fishing before that happened, so I went to the shore, but the slush was too thick to get a lure through.  So I tried wading around to create enough of an opening to take a few casts.  It didn't really work, so I guess I'll have to wait for warmer weather.

About 4 weeks ago Summer Milky Way
The Milky Way rises high over rocks in California's Mojave Desert.  The Milky Way rises highest in the sky around the time of the summer solstice, but you also need minimal moon interference.  Here's a blog post describing the most convenient times for you to pursue the Milky Way this summer:

If you'd like to join me for some night shooting, I still have some space in my workshops in the ghost town of Bodie:

About 1 day ago Lunar Eclipse Over Yosemite Valley South Rim
I caught the lunar eclipse behind trees high on the cliffs  of Yosemite Valley Monday night.  There are so many similar pictures of eclipses of the moon alone... I like to add something extra when I can. I chased the edge of the shadow of this ridge line for 15-20 minutes as the moon entered eclipse and turned red, moving, shooting, and moving again to place the moon by or behind the trees on the ridge.

This is a single exposure captured for 0.5 seconds at f/8, ISO 3200, but I also have brighter, bracketed exposures in case I have time to better recover the ridge line detail in +Adobe Photoshop at some future date.
Captured on a Canon EOS 5D Mark III camera, EF70-200mm f/4L IS USM lens +2x Teleconverter II.

About 10 weeks ago Ghosts in the Machine
An old truck is given new life in the ghost town of Bodie State Historic Park, California.  This was taken at 9:30 pm on August 24 last year.  We'll be back again on August 30 this year, when  the moon will be a 17% crescent gently illuminating the town until it drops behind the nearby hills around 9:45 pm.  Then we'll enjoy dark, starry skies for stunning Milky Way shots until we depart at 1 am.   That many weeks after the summer solstice, we'll have have a lot more time for night shooting than we would during the longer days closer to late June.

We'll have other Bodie workshop dates available in 2014 as well.  Check my blog for details: http://www.jeffsullivanphotography.com/blog/bodie-night-photography-workshops/
