Mono Lake 2015, I had this storm as a friend all of my 1,500+ mile road trip. So many interesting shots, I may make a e-book of these images. Copyright Vanderhoof Photography 2016

Yes, the color are dramatic, but I like that the b/w focuses you on the cloud formations and rough surface of the tufa structures.

Was not sure about this one, in color was a wow. B/W does pretty good, the texture is more evident, but I had to play to make the lichen pop on the rock. Copyright Vanderhoof Photography 2016

In the experimental department…. Somewhere in Nevada, 2015.

Just playing around, trying to get clouds on full moon with foreground… shot for the hot moon and used a circular grad filter in Lightroom “invert” to keep moon down and raise the hills… almost worked!

https://wordpress.com/post/vanderhoofphotography.com/4889 When you come for water or are doing wash, Don’t JUST REACH OUT! The hose is you can see this guy is like 2 inches long.

I was doing my wash and as I reached to turn on the water to this hose a wasp, one of these landed on the TOP OF THE HANDLE! I was inches from putting my hand down as it landed.

So I stopped and waited for it to get it’s drink, then turn on the water.

I have Missed getting hit in the face by these guys as they fly around the courtyard sink area. No one has been stung either since I moved here.
