New Photographs

This is a photography blog after all, so I thought I would post some new photos. These were taken of Alpine Lake which is part of the local watershed. Over half the water from my county comes from these man made lakes created by damming up Lagunitas Creek. During the winter rainy months, the lakes will up with water and during the spring, summer and fall the water gradually retreats revealing first new green grasses and finally barren dry gullies.

The addition of a heavy morning fog a few weeks ago made for some great conditions. These were all taken that one morning.

In spite of my wise-ass blog about critics, your comments are always appreciated.

  1. Beautiful images! I just love the mood that fog gives to a landscape photograph.

  2. Hello Dan.

    Simple and open compositions that together with fog and cool, summer morning light really made my day.

    Very inspiring and I am sure they would look nice on a large prints.

  4. Very nice Dan. Fog + reeds are just the right formula for tranquility.

  5. I have always been drawn towards these type of images. Whether an intimate type or nature scape type. These are very nice Dan, executed very well.

  6. The fog sure adds a nice dose of magic. Very peaceful 🙂

  7. Always a treat to see new work from you, Dan. These are wonderful and could grace the walls of any fine art gallery.


  8. The lack of contrast with the slight hints of color, while slightly moody are very mysterious and calming as well.

  9. Hey good stuff…keep up the good work! I read a lot of blogs on a daily basis and for the most part, people lack substance but, I just wanted to make a quick comment to say I’m glad I found your blog. Thanks,)

    A definite great read…
