A giant rain forest full of tourists, but they don't distract from the overpowering scenery.  This is 4x4 country, and I'm using long exposures.  So many exquisite textures and intense colors.  The immense scale is difficult
to convey.

The light at the top of the half dome reflects on the Merced River in the Yosemite National Forest, as mist

rises in the trees.

Standing amidst the ice plants on cliff's edge, it  is hard to keep the camera steady in the 1st El Nino storm of 1997. The waves were 15-30 feet high and the wind was 25 MPH, gusting to 40-50; a stunning and powerful display. The overcast shots were south of Big Sur and the sunny shots were Monterey, North. The boiling water crashed into the cliffs, sending spray 75-100 feet up
in an endless pattern.

The waves off Point Lobos rose up in great swells, with the wind ripping their tops off in sunlit curtains. The Sea Lions and Seals surfed and fished, enjoying the challenge.

At StovePipe Wells, 6:00 A.M. after a four-day assignment in Los Angeles, I set out to the dunes. It's raining!  An Ohio thunderstorm sky!  I'm very  disappointed, but I set up and the sky parts for 2 minutes - brilliant sun! Then more rain and overcast skies the rest of the day. At the motel the owner says it is the most rain he has seen in his entire 50 years.
