I dedicate this image to my long time California storm chasing companion Miguel De La Cruz who just by chance wasn't able to do the late night shift this chase required. This one's for you Amigo!

I have had this exact shot in my head for forever and a day now. I'm still in utter disbelief that I got it. The bolts were striking to the south of Mt. Diablo when I arrived at this location, but I set up anyways and just started shooting. Yeah, I can be stubborn and obstinate at times. I was either going to get lightning over the mountain or nothing at all. To top it off, I have recently come down with a summer cold, so my energy level was down to zilch. The odds seemed stacked against this image happening. I even passed this location up and drove four miles down the road before deciding to return to the spot.

Seven shots in, and this happened. That's all it took. I'm pretty stoked.

Morning light in the Eastern Sierras. Dark clouds were lingering as our workshop lined up to get a shot of the mountain lighting up in spots. A hypnotizing experience watching the morning light dance

Another image from my workshop where we had the entire lake to ourselves. Mono Lake with snow and storm clouds. I knew exactly what I was going to shoot as soon as I arrived at the trailhead for the lake.

What a fantastic workshop we had! Yosemite with no visitors??? You betcha! We had the entire place to ourselves except the random fly fisherman (who we documented with glee). Talk about a morning. The valley was silent except for the sound of the falls and the variety of bird song. Peace and tranquility in a place where often there is noise and commotion
