Corlieu Falls and William Neill's new ebook - Meditations in Monochrome

Lower Corlieu Falls, Sierra National Forest, California  2009

0.4 sec at f/16, focal length: 36mm, ISO 100, Aperture Priority, +1EV - March 12, 2009, 5:29pm PDT. Photographed with Canon EOS 20D, EF 17-40mm f/4L, tripod mounted

The above image is from the same session and location as the previous post. The Corlieu Falls are just downstream from where the other image was taken. Lewis Creek is a wonderful area that offers very easy hiking and not to mention extremely accessible. If you're ever traveling to Yosemite National Park and are taking Hwy 41 to get there, it's just off the right side of the road before you reach Fish Camp. There's a sign for the trail head just before you reach the large turn out for parking.

As I mentioned before, William Neill and I have been working on his new ebook, "Meditations in Monochrome" and it is now available for the world to see. I have to say that the conversions have come out beautifully and Bill's work has always had the design inherent in the images that make for very strong black and white compositions, even though he's primarily worked in color for the majority of his career. Ansel Adams once said about his color work that he "sees in Black and White"! It is true inspiration in every sense of the word. So check it out. You can read more about it here or comment and leave feedback about it on his blog.

Also I'm sure you've noticed some changes around the blog, including the new little flickr widget in the sidebar. I think it's fun!

Hope everyone had a great Easter weekend!
