Bodie, CA, Where Time is Frozen

Last time I was in Bodie, I nearly died. This time, I nearly roasted. Some of you know that, while photographing Bodie in the snow in 2008, I ruptured my intestine and nearly died of sepsis. This week, I returned to Bodie and felt the weather was going to kill me. At night, it’s been below freezing and during the day, it g0t to 90F.

Bodie looks very different in the snow than the hot, clear days of summer’s end. The rangers had been expecting snow by now so the 90F temps took them by surprise as well. Here are some photos from today.


Tomorrow, I’ll be at the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest at 11,000 feet where I hope to reshoot some photos I made last year with less than satisfactory results. Then, on Thursday, I’ll be in the Alabama Hills near Lone Pine, photographing arches blasted into the granite.

Leftovers from California Photo Festival


Upcoming Workshops

If you don’t have time for a week long workshop like the California Photo Festival that I just attended, check out some of my local workshops:

Wild Animal Park “Hands-ON” Workshop – Oct 9

Flash Photography at Deer Park Winery – Nov 13

Backyard Photography at Kit Carson Park – Nov 20

My new mantra is, “I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand”. Photography lectures are soon forgotten, demonstrations are remembered but do photography to understand what you’re doing.
