By the way Dave how did you eastern Sierra(fall foliage) trip turn out?
I planned a quick trip up last Sat, but after the storm came in on Friday I changed my mind, and after reading the calphoto site Im glad I did.

Hola, Dave! I agree 100% with what you said. I've always found "how" someone got a particular photo interesting, and what they used, etc. Not because of disclosure requirements or distrust, but more so simply out of curiousity. Some photogs don't think any of that matters or is anyone's business, but I always like the see the decisions made, and equipment used, for a particular image. On my Flickr site I always add the camera used, film, filters, etc., always have, mostly because I know there's folks like me who are simply curious. I'm also open with where an image was taken specifically. In fact most of my photo "titles" are boring descriptions of where and when the image was taken... Eagle Falls Evening... Eagle Falls Morning... McWay Falls Afternoon... Pioner Basin Evening... Minaret Morning... ha ha! I'm so creative. :D

P.S. I too am curious about your fall shoot. I'm stuck here in Delaware for 2 weeks of work related training and I'm missing the peak aspen colors. Just because I'm not able to be there, I hope it SUCKS this year.. ha ha! KEEEEDING. I hope there are some great displays and you photogs are able to come back with the best Fall shots you've taken to date. I'll enjoy them from way back here.

Ha! Mav, I wish I could! I don't get much free time, it's pretty intensive training. Actually I haven't seen much in the immediate area that looks very good. Plus I didn't even bring a camera. I still have a glimmer of hope that there'll be SOME gold left on the aspens in the eastern Sierra somewhere, even if it's just four leaves on one tree in a remote canyon. Keep your eye on those aspens for me!

The 2007 fall southeastern Sierra aspen photography is history now. The big storm last Friday was a major leaf killer as temps at 8000 got well down into the teens. There still are some lowest elevation grove areas that were still green during the storm that will be changing in the next week or so. For instance lower Virginia Creek and the south slopes below Mount Wood near Silver Lake. The cold core of that storm mainly went south so didn't affect areas from Hope Valley north as much. Check the Plumas County leafpeeper site. Pacific dogwood are likely to peak in the central and southern west Sierra areas the following two weekends so is a better subject now.

I spent most of yesterday and today processing lots of Coolpix images and writing a trip story then integrating it into an html document for my web site. Still have to write the slideshow code and ought to have that done sometime tomorrow morning after which I'll import it up to my web server. My 46 Provia 4x5 transparencies won't be back from the lab till Tuesday afternoon so won't add that in till later next week. I potentially nailed some unique snow in aspen grove shots on Saturday morning so am rather eager to get my film back. My Sorrels were kicking through about 5 inches of dry fresh powder that covered everything. Also looking forward to see how I did with a few great pink nightwedge reflections among the Mono tufas.
