That's Right, They're Mtn Bluebirds

This particular one is in the Ghost Forest and regrettably pretty high up (hence the use of the 2x). I personally don’t like shooting “up” on cavity nesters, the perspective just bugs me but it was a good illustration of an important aspect of photographing cavity nesters.

Eastern Sierra Adv – Fall '10

This movie requires Flash Player 9 We’re sharing our home in the Eastern Sierra Oct 21-24, 2010. We’ll be doing a little traveling, a little shooting, a little dinning, a little ice cream, a little digital darkroom, a little UFO, maybe even a guest appearance by Big Foot and for sure, a lot of fun. Fall color is lookin promising for this fall with all the water we have promoting tons of green right now. The gorgeous granite isn’t going anywhere and the light in the fall, well, there just isn’t anything like it. We only take six folks, we’ll be based out of Mammoth Lakes the entire time but ranging out to photograph some of the splendor that makes the Eastside a beautiful place. Want to join us, give Sharon a call at 760.924.8632,...
