Sinopsis:

California offers an incredible diversity of world-class landscapes to explore. Within its 163,700 square miles lie the lowest and highest points in the continental United States, the hottest place on earth, and the oldest life on the planet: Bristlecone pines up to 4,600 years old. Whether your camera is a smartphone or the latest DSLR, this book can help you find the most interesting places. Capturing memorable images just got a lot easier! Whether your interest is mountains or seashores, slot canyons or salt flats, waterfalls, rock formations, sand dunes, lighthouses or historic mining camps, the book will direct you to the best landmarks, at the time when the light is best. The author has done the hard work for you, revealing the best photo hot-spots and saving you the frustration of searching for them yourself.

About the Author:

My lifelong relationship with nature and natural landscapes began in the forest, fields, mountains, streams and seashores of New England. When I was 12, my family moved to California, where we explored the High Sierra, the Pacific Coast, and everything in between. I traded Henry David Thoreau's Walden Pond for John Muir's Range of Light. On cross-country road trips I captured photos on a Kodak Instamatic camera, but a year-long photography class in 8th grade introduced me to exposure and composition, and I practiced developing and printing 35 mm film. I was inspired and moved by the work of Ansel Adams and Galen Rowell, who were shooting at that time the same mountains and valleys that I was exploring, hiking, fishing, camping, backpacking, and skiing in.   Upon graduating from the University of California, Berkeley, my first job was as an applications engineer for the Graphic Printing and Imaging Division at Tektronix, where I received a sound foundation in digital imaging.  The arrival of affordable digital cameras promised to put the full end-to-end photographic process in the hands of any photographer with a computer, so I jumped in with both feet, eagerly adopting four new models from 2001 - 2006. My divorce in 2006 left me free to pursue photography full time. I won awards in photography contests, and licensed photos to National Geographic, Old Earth Almanac, Outdoor Photographer Magazine, and many others. I was invited to teach photography in 2009, and by 2012 my photography workshops covered several national parks, the Eastern Sierra, and night photography in the ghost town of Bodie State Historic Park.  I have been living in the Eastern Sierra, not far from Bodie, since 2010.  Having visited the park for decades now, I am honored to have raised over $25,000 for building stabilization in Bodie through my workshops there. We can't predict what will happen in our lives tomorrow, but we can look back and see all of the small influences and decisions that led us to where we are today.  Happiness is when you wouldn't want to have arrived anywhere else. In recent years my path has often led me through and east of Ansel Adams' Yosemite, and through and north of Galen Rowell's Eastern Sierra, and that sure seems like paradise to me. It is a privilege to be able to share with you my love for California; its varied geography, ecosystems, parklands, and some of my personal favorite locations.  Be safe, have fun, tread lightly, and please take care of these priceless and cherished places.   Check my blog and Web site for travel stories, my latest photos, the recent sites I've discovered, and my current workshop schedule. I hope that you can join me here in California's stunning landscapes some time soon.
