Sunset at Mono Lake Friday Night

Originally shared by +Jeff Sullivan Photography

The Labor Day holiday weekend crowds are out, but at sunset at Mono Lake on Friday I managed to find a few feet of space without people in it.

Sunset in Yosemite's Tuolumne Meadows

Originally shared by +Jeff Sullivan Photography

A short hike and a long lens yielded this stunning view in the High Sierra Saturday night. I hadn't visited this vantage point in a while, but it seemed like it might pay off for this sunset.

Mono Lake / Eastern Sierra Workshop Last Week
As I did most of the summer, I held an Eastern Sierra workshop adjacent to my Bodie workshop last weekend, so people could see more of the area and get some practice with night photography before getting to Bodie on Sunday. Summer evenings are often windy, but that doesn't mean that you can't get good sunset shots!

We actually spent some time up in the Tioga Pass area as well, enjoying afternoon cumulous clouds, sunset, and night photography.
I'll have a couple of fall workshops in early October when we can revisit those areas:

Stormy Day in Bodie

Originally shared by +Jeff Sullivan Photography

At lest a couple of dozen photos from the July 29 night photography workshop are included in the Bodie Photography Workshops album. Torrential rains came to town at 3 pm, just as many workshop participants were leaving town to join us for a pre-workshop dinner at Virginia Creek Settlement. The rain cleared the air of smoke from California's wildfires, then the clouds added to the drama in the sky through golden hour and into sunset, but as often happens, quickly broke up for night photography. It was perfect photography workshop weather!

Our remaining Bodie workshops in 2016 are getting pretty full, so I'm looking into potentially adding a date in October. Let me know if you want to hear about 2017 dates once I have them. The most popular dates do fill quickly these days.

Yosemite's Tuolumne Meadows Sunday Night

I headed up to the Tioga Pass Road in Yosemite to see how current summer water levels in the Tuolumne River might influence my workshop later this week. With water levels dropping, there are some nice calm spots for sunset reflections.

California Fall Colors

Originally shared by +Jeff Sullivan Photography

After enjoying the Eastern Sierra for decades, pursuing fall colors here for over ten years and living here for six, my main fall colors workshop dates this year are:
October 3 – 7 Eastern Sierra Fall Colors and Milky Way
October 10 – 14 Eastern Sierra Fall Colors and Moonlit Landscapes

November 12 – 16 Yosemite Fall Colors and Full Moon

I read today that "In Wisconsin, the fall-color tourists spend over $1 billion". I can show you the best of California for a whole lot less! If there's demand I may add an Eastern Sierra workshop later in October, but there's added risk of a cold mid-October storm destroying the turned leaves and burning the remaining ones to brown and black.

Perseid Meteor Shower 2016

I've been chasing every meteor shower that I could see with my camera since 2009. This year's Perseid meteor shower was one of the best I've experienced so far.

These are "work in progress" shots, where I've saved the images with meteors in them, and brought those into one composite image. #nightphotography #astrophotography #photographyworkshops #easternsierra #california #canon #6D

Sunset in the Pines

A photo from my workshop in the White Mountains Thursday evening through Saturday morning. We also spent a day and night on either end in the Eastern Sierra, getting to and from the Bristlecones.

We can schedule another trip or two up there this year if there's interest. We'll schedule return trips next year as well.
