Maiden Light

Released June 2020

Having been forced to park a little way from my planned destination, Torc Waterfall near Killarney, Ireland, I took the opportunity to explore downstream along the Owengarriff River. The morning sun was flirting with clouds overhead, alternating from harsh to a more subtle filtered light.

As I captured a few photos in this particular area, the backlit glow through the leaves of this tree along the river caught my eye, and I waited for the right balance of sun and clouds to capture this image.

Here, Maiden (pronounced MA-jin) is Irish for "morning."

Arrival at Inspiration Point

Released May 2020

Having driven with clear blue skies for several hours as I made my way to Yosemite National Park from San Francisco, I wasn't particularly concerned with the timing of my arrival. I wasn't even certain I'd bother trying to shoot anything at sunset. But for the last hour or so of the trip I was teased by the hint of clouds in the distance...

I ended up skipping my check-in at the Valley Lodge for the time being and headed on to the iconic Inspiration Point (Tunnel View) overlook, not knowing what to expect. Upon coming out of the trees around the final curve, this absolutely spectacular scene unfolded before me. The only thing that could have made it better is if I had arrived from the other direction, via the tunnel itself!

Knowing I had only minutes to spare, I frantically parked, unburied my camera bag and tripod from the trunk of my rental, and rushed to find compositions away from the large group of photographers along the overlook's wall, switching between my long and short lenses as the fire in the sky began to falter. Three compositions, and about 15 shots.

And within 10 minutes the light was gone, but this moment has been replayed in my mind's eye frequently over the past few months.

Awaken

Released May 2020

After a week of late nights and early starts, we wrapped up our time in Grand Teton National Park with one more pre-dawn wake-up call. Venturing out to what ended up being one of my favorite locations from the trip we were treated to the sound of roaring rapids, the feel of soft mist, and the sight of swirling steam rising into the surrounding trees as the sun crept above the horizon. Although there is certainly joy gained from capturing moments like this through the camera lens, it's ultimately the experience of simply being present that matters most.

Respite

Released April 2020

Throughout the first month (and counting) of staying at home - a time filled with a mixture of anxiousness, frustration, fear, and wanderlust - this quiet moment has consistently drifted into my thoughts. A moment captured during a calm morning in Yosemite Valley, when I had no inkling of how life would change so dramatically a few short weeks in the future.

The setting sun ignites the horizon in central Texas as a small group of trees bears witness.

Ephemeral / Permanence

Released March 2020

It's difficult to truly capture through a single image the immensity of the granite walls that embrace Yosemite Valley. At the same time, while trying to grasp their size, there is also a feeling of overpowering weight as you stop to reflect upon your surroundings; not in the literal sense but rather the magnitude of eons come and gone while the weathered walls continue to stand implacably against the onslaught of time.

Even if these trees survive for a few centuries, they'll come and go with the snap of fingers compared to the permanence of Half Dome, in front of which they stand. That ephemerality makes me appreciate my own time here all the more.
