New Work – April 2013

To go straight to the new images: New Work – April 2013.

I have been slowing down the release of new work on my web site. This is partly due to my desire to be more contemplative and rigorous during the editing of my images, but also I had my shoulder nearly rebuilt when three tendons were reattached during a major surgery in February. It is only in the last couple weeks that I have been able to get out again and photograph, and even now I have to hold back on what I can do. No wave photography, backpacking or scuba diving for me this year it seems, at least for 6-8 more months.

Included in this release are some favorite locations, such as La Jolla’s Torrey Pines State Reserve, Joshua Tree National Park and Nevada’s Valley of Fire State Park. I have photographed them at night in order to try to produce images that are new, interesting and hopefully unlike the many images being made at these locations these days.

Here is a small sample of the new work. You can see others at New Work – April 2013. Cheers and thanks for looking!
