p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · High Sierra Nevada


So I just came back from my over the weekend trip to High Sierra Nevada. This time I took 120 that connects 395 to Yosemite Valley, and drove the road around looking for some good looking Juniper trees. I found quite few (and good looking) that don't even require any hike, well, maybe 0.25 mile round trip. This was my first drive there so I didn't know what to expect. If you do go, I strongly suggest the Olmsted Point (where I took all these trees shots at).
On the way back home, very early in the morning, I stopped over at Alabama Hills and captured this shot of Mt. Whitney. Again, I didn't have any clouds around it. I must've shoot the peak a 1000 times by now, and I gotta say, I have never (except in the winter time) seen the mountain with colds around/above it. So I just darken the sky and emphasized the color of alpine glow.
The pano of triple Juniper (second image) was taken way after the sunset. The exposure time was around a minute for each segment of the pano.

Inspiring work Greg. I agree with Rajan about #1 and #4, beautiful light in addition to the great compositions.

Gregg, I am a huge fan of your work! I agree with others on #1 & 4. I really love the way you composed #4. The image is beautifully anchored in the foreground. So much of interest in that image. Excellent work 👍🏻YGMV

Amazing shots, Greg. Would be curious what your workflow looks like to get the sky looking so deep in the first one - I often end up with an ugly gray sky when I shoot alpenglow with no clouds present.

Nothing really special. Iíve done it all in Lightroom with one click, ďselect skyĒ. Then I pull the exposure down, thatís it. OK, maybe also Iíve moved the blue slider a little but really that was it. The sky came out great because itís all in raw, no bending or some other artificial stuff in the smooth blue sky. I get that crap when I go to PS, unless I use smart objects. But why bother going over to PS if I can do it all in Lightroom. The sky was perfectly selectable since there is nothing there, just blue color and no other details. So the tool in Lightroom did a great job.

This is a great set. That 4th image is perfection in my eyes.

Beautiful series Gregg!
Great light follows you or perhaps it's the other way around.

Fabulous work as always man! Original and super light.
Note, the last one does not seem to have the same fine sharpening applied.

Excellent work on these, Gregg. 3 stands out for me because of the lines and foreground.
