It’s that time again. I’ve reviewed the photographs I made over the last twelve months to come up with my personal favorites to share with you. View the complete Favorite Photos 2019 Collection.
As you’ll see, I’ve spent a good deal of time wandering among the trees, letting the light lead me to discoveries. In January I met an old friend, Riggy Rackin, masterful english concertina performer, who led me on a special walk above Rock Springs on Mount Tam. I looked skyward to make the following photograph:
Most of my photographic wanderings occurred not far from my home. In fact a couple of my favorites were made on walks along the Green Bridge Trail, right next to our home. They ended up in my recently published book, One Place Deeply. The one shown below was made a few days after the summer solstice in 2019.
In Jenner, California I met my friend Jim Wehlage and walked a darkened trail down to a rock outcropping above the sea. Shown here is a time exposure of the Milky Way rising above the rocks in the star-splashed sky.
Lately I’ve been looking much closer at the flora along the trail. During a recent frosty morning, I was drawn to a gesture made by a pair of leaves in the early morning sun. Another morning a frozen teasel beckoned.
I hope you enjoyed looking at these photographs. You’ll find more of my macro plant images in the Close-up Flora Collection.
