Thank you, Ron, Happy New Year!
very nice pics…especially liked the pup fish…it took a while but i found him…
Much appreciated, Ron, thank you!
Just stunning! Thanks for sharing your work with us – it’s so inspiring. And a very happy, creative new year to you.
Thank you, Donna, same to you!
Really awesome set, Jackson. I really enjoyed the trips we got to take together this year, so of course I recognize some of these images but it’s always a joy to see what else you’ve been up to! From the Sierra east, your images of the Great Basin are always jaw-dropping. Here’s to a great 2017.
Thanks, Greg! Here’s to more!
Spectacular images, Jackson. I know I’ve given you compliments for subtlety before and I can see the same instincts at work here, but your move to the Eastern Sierra has also brought more dramatic interest to your work. My favorite is Columbus Valley, followed closely by Sawmill Creek and Currant Mountain. I wish you another prolific and rewarding year in 2017…
Thank you, David, much appreciated! Yes, coming out here has definitely affected my style – most obviously in that I shoot way more telephoto and way less wide angle than I used to. I think the largely feast-or-famine nature of clouds around here has also intensified my preference for storm light and gloom.
A productive 2017 to you as well!
Beautiful collection of photos. A pleasure to see your year end photos and really appreciate your participation in this years Best Photos of the Year blog project. I hope you and your family have a great 2017!
Thank you, Jim, much appreciated!
