One of my photos is a finalist in Outdoor Photographer magazine’s Great Outdoors contest

It’s a photo I took at sunrise at Mobius Arch in the Alabama Hills a couple of months ago.  One part of the contest is a “people’s choice” winner, which will be published in the magazine’s online gallery.  If you like my pic, I’d love to have your vote at this link (registration is required, but you can opt out of any emails or spam).

It’s been a busy few months for me, but I’ve been busy photographing like a mad woman.  If you want to catch up on what I’ve been doing–including the results of my trip last weekend to Arizona and Utah–just click on the link to my Flickr photostream on the right-hand column on this page.

I’m in the process of building my own photography page, which will be up soon at  I’ll post here to let you know as soon as it’s ready for primetime, and my blog will move to the new site at that time.

I’ve also just gotten started on a documentary photography project, which will combine my photography with my past experience as a journalist.  I’ll be documenting the ongoing restoration efforts at the Owens Lake in Eastern California, which was drained dry following the construction of the Los Angeles Aqueduct in 1913.  What happened in the valley was the subject of the fictionalized story in the film Chinatown, and it’s a fascinating and important piece of California’s history.  If you’re unfamiliar with the lake, stop by the project website often and find out about this unique and fragile ecosystem that’s beginning to come back to life.

As always, thanks for taking the time to stop by and check out my photos!
