That was all black-and-white film photography. More recently—about eight years ago—I decided to give night photography another shot, now using digital technology. I joined a workshop led by Boston-based photographer Lance Keimig and held at Mono Lake, on the eastern side of the Sierra Nevada, with visits also to Olmsted Point in Yosemite National Park and the historic ghost town of Bodie.
Since then, I've occasionally gone out and done night work, though it's been a while. I might have to dust off my faded skills and try again. It really is a pleasure to hang out and enjoy the evening air while the open shutter allows photons to etch an image.
Here are a few of my favorite night photos.
|Mission San Juan Bautista|
|Mono Lake (not really a night shot, but it's pretty)|
|Santa Cruz County|
|Point Lobos (also not really a night shot)|
|Pigeon Point Lighthouse, San Mateo County|
|Mare Island Naval Shipyard, Vallejo|
