Just a reminder that the special Ansel Adams Gallery print sale ends tomorrow at 6:00 p.m. Pacific time, so you still have time to get 25% off two of my images: El Capitan by Moonlight, and Half Dome and North Dome from the Four-Mile Trail. You can see all the details about the sale in this earlier post, or go directly to The Ansel Adams Gallery’s website to purchase a print here.
On this Thanksgiving Day I want to express my appreciation to you, my blog readers, for all your support. It’s great to discuss photography with people who share the same passion, and your participation makes writing this blog fun. Thank you so much!
Whether or not you celebrate Thanksgiving I hope you all have many things to be thankful for. Happy Thanksgiving!

Just in time for Black Friday The Ansel Adams Gallery is sponsoring another special print sale of two of my photographs, at 25% off the normal price. The two images we selected for this offer are Half Dome and North Dome from the Four-Mile Trail, Yosemite, and El Capitan by Moonlight, Yosemite. I’ve posted these two photographs on this blog before, of course – in fact El Capitan by Moonlight was selected by you, my readers, as one of my ten best photographs of 2015, getting the third-most votes. But these two images have never been exhibited at a gallery or sold before.
My signed, matted, limited-edition 16×20 prints usually sell for $325, but during this sale you can get one for only $244. Or you can purchase a 20×24 print, normally $475, for only $356. This is a rare chance to purchase one of my photographs at a reduced price, but the sale lasts just one week, until Tuesday, November 29th, at 6:00 PM Pacific time. Visit the Ansel Adams Gallery website to purchase a print or get more details.
Here are the stories behind the photographs:
Black Friday arrived early at Craft & Vision, and everything is 50% off until midnight on Saturday. That discount includes Exposure for Outdoor Photography, my ebook about understanding the essential technical fundamentals of photography. The book starts with a comprehensive discussion of histograms and the different ways of adjusting exposure, then goes deeper by taking you through ten practical, real-life examples where I’ve used these basic principles to control the exposure, the sharpness, and the photograph’s message. Normally the book is only $5.00, but through Saturday it’s only $2.50, which is quite a steal!
This is a quick post to let you know that the deadline for entering the 32nd annual Yosemite Renaissance competition and exhibit has been extended to November 20th, so you still have time to enter. You can find out all the details and enter online here.
This is a great organization and competition, and the opening reception (February 24th, 2017) is always a really fun event. The competition is “intended to encourage diverse artistic interpretations of Yosemite.” I’ve been honored to have my photographs accepted into the Yosemite Renaissance exhibit a number of times, and always felt I was in good company with many wonderful artists in each show. The photograph above was in the 2009 exhibit.
