On Wednesday, March 26th, join photographer Ian Shive for a dinner and slideshow presentation with the Los Angeles photography group “Clickers & Flickers.” Shive will host a 1-hour presentation of images that will take you on a visual journey through America’s National Parks to the rain forest canopy of Malaysia. Details and registration information are below:
The snowy Sierra’s were only miles away, but who cares when you can get a tan and board the 300 foot sand dunes of Death Valley National Park.
It’s the perfect season to be in Death Valley. Contrary to it’s name, the landscape is blossoming with wildflowers, the temperatures are in the low 70’s and a cool breeze blows through this normally arid and barren landscape. The photo below is from Badwater Basin, where salt rises up out of the earth, splitting and shaping an otherworldly-looking formation.
I spent the last couple days dive-training and photographing off the coast of California on Catalina Island. The water is a cold 51 degrees, but thanks to a dry suit and some insulating fleece, I hardly felt a thing. Below is the iconic Garibaldi swimming amongst the kelp forest.
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.
