Welcome!

Linda JeffersIn a world of so many great photographers and writers, I am venturing into some unknown territories, leaving comfort zones, finally very willing to practice the art of seeing. By maintaining the practice of posting daily photos, I hope to continue learning about the possibilities that I trust are out there for the taking.

Come join me on my journey!

One Day Winter Workshop at Tejon Pass.

I’ve uploaded photos from last Saturday’s Keith Douglas Skelton, One Day Winter Workshop at Tejon Pass. Click on this link http://gottago.smugmug.com/Classes-Workshops/20140208-Tejon-Pass/i-MtzN3SM to view all the photos. I photographed some of the workshop participants too.

We’d hoped to have snowy landscapes to photograph but the weather had other ideas in mind. I was pleasantly surprised to find so many photo opportunities to make something out of nothing (not really nothing:-)).

To see more photos of the fun workshop follow the link I've provided.

Fleeting but intense red San Jacinto.

Off in a while to Tejon Pass for a one day photography workshop with Jen and JJ to a workshop lead by Keith Skelton.
He’d been hoping for snow on the pass but we’re probably not going to have any snow even though there has been rain in the LA area. But this workshop is about making something out of nothing. Keith is good at that so I’m hoping I’ll learn some knew ways of seeing creatively.

Thanks to Ray coming in and telling me I might want to get up as the color is exceptional this morning, I got to see some brief, intense color on Mount San Jacinto.

False Alarm.

Such potential..... unrealized as the sky went grey when I'd hoped for color galore not long as I shot this photo.

Framed Lake.

Shot on the way back from 4 holes of golf. West view over the San Jacinto range. Hoping for some snow or rain. We've had so little. The PCT hikers will probably have to avoid many a fire this hiking season.

The Bump & Grind 4.5 Mile Hike.

Hoping Melissa can get 5 days off work for a much needed backpack in a couple of months. Melissa, Jen and I have been doing sections of the Pacific Crest Trail since I introduced them both to backpacking about 3 years ago. We do have a really fun time backpacking together. It will be so nice to get “out there” again.

Saturday morning hike up the Bump & Grind training with our backpacks. PCT 132 mile segment coming up from just south of Big Bear to just past Wrightwood come April 9th!
