I’ve photographed over two dozen wildflower species in Death Valley National Park so far this month. April should bring even more acreage and species on line, to deliver a well above average year in the park for wildflowers.
The quantity and diversity of wildflowers may not be the most interesting aspect however. Last year’s superbloom delivered a bumper crop of seeds, which multiplied the rodent population, and that has resulted in more sidewinder rattlesnakes than I’ve seen in the park before. I followed a couple of the tracks, but was not able to catch up with any of the snakes.
If you visit the park this spring, watch where you step!

As I look towards possibly leading workshops in Grand Teton National Park in 2017, I've updated some of the edits on my photos from my past visits to the park.

Yosemite's Tioga Pass Road closed yesterday, but it will be in my dreams all winter long. If you have my guidebook "Photographing California Vol. 2 -South", you may recognize this location from page 42.

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.

Sunday evening in Death Valley National Park, California. It was interesting trying to cook dinner over a fire in that wind!

I was really fortunate to enjoy some great light in Death Valley last week, so if they open more of the roads closed after October storms, I might go back in a few days!
