Visiting Yosemite Valley in mid-winter is like leaving California and going to a place with it’s own weather, culture and society. Inside this snow globe village is a tiny chapel – a sentinel among the endless height of the granite spires and cathedral-like walls that embrace the valley from all sides.
The Sierra Club of Los Angeles will be hosting photographer Ian Shive this coming February 11, 2007, for a journey through some of Ian’s images from California and around the world. The event is free and all are welcome to attend. Details are below.

Ian Shive is proud to be the photographer chosen to document the ranch and wildlands of a landmark deal by The Nature Conservancy to purchase the development rights to the private ranch of the Hewlett and Packard families. Ian’s images are currently on The Nature Conservancy’s website as well as a 2-minute video featuring Ian’s imagery of the property and adjoining wildlife corridor.
While photographing for The Nature Conservancy today, I was lucky enough to spot one of these little creatures crawling out of a creek.
