Sierras and Southern California Desert Areas

These are a collection of pictures  from my travels in the Sierras from Tahoe to Bishop, Mono Lake to Yosemite to the southern California deserts, including Joshua Tree, Palm Springs, Riverside, Ontario and Chino  areas in Southern California. 

Amongst these photographs, I have played with iPhone technologies and utilized apps for HDR, Pano, and other techniques.   You will also notice images which have been shot with a modified Canon in order to create Infrared imagery.  It seems that scenery from both Bodie and Mono Lake lend themselves to different photographic approaches.  I hope that you enjoy the variety and edginess to some of the images.

Most importantly, these images  represent the beauty that surrounds us when we just take the time to look!
