What a great way to start 2007, with the preliminary cover design for my The Photographer’s Guide to Yosemite and the High Sierras. This book will be published this year by The Countryman Press, and distributed by W.W. Norton.
It’s been really exciting taking the photos for this book. I’ve enjoyed almost every minute of it. But, of course, you don’t need to wait for my book to see some of my images of Yosemite. Here’s the Yosemite category on my blog, and my Yosemite set on Flickr.
Here’s more about my upcoming Yosemite book and about me (I know you probably know me if you are reading my blog, but I can’t help myself!) from the back cover copy:
The scenic wonders of Yosemite and the mountains that surround it—the high Sierra—attract visitors from around the world. If you are planning to visit Yosemite with your camera, photography will be important part of your trip to the area that John Muir called “the greatest temple” in the world.
The Photographer’s Guide to Yosemite and the Sierras provides insider information about exactly how to find the most scenic vistas in Yosemite and the Sierras, and how to go about taking great photos once you are there. You’ll learn about weather, photography and phases of the sun and the moon, and the best times of year to visit and photograph specific attractions. You’ll find out about the logistics of visiting Yosemite and the Sierras off-season—and discover the stunning photographic payoffs that can reward off-season travel.
Even if you plan to travel no further than your armchair (beside a roaring fireplace) you’ll enjoy the luscious photography that fills The Photographer’s Guide to Yosemite and the Sierras. Yosemite is iconic in the history of photography and The Photographer’s Guide to Yosemite and the Sierras presents an all new, digital way of seeing Yosemite.
