Description This area of the Sierra Nevada mountain range has been the backdrop for numerous motion pictures, and boasts the highest mountain peak in the lower 48, Mount Whitney, at 14,505 feet. The John Muir Trail starts here and runs through to Yosemite, some 210 miles in length. Muir, the renown naturalist, almost died in his first attempt to make the summit after getting caught in the area at nightfall, and unprepared for an overnight stay. Had to dance a jig all night to keep his blood flowing. Mount Whitney is found in the Sequoia National Park. I captured this photo from one of the campgrounds located at the foot of the mountains. Finished it off with a brushstroke finish.God Bless! John 3:16-17

A Little Bit About Me and What I Do
I strive to 'capture, create, and communicate' vision... to share something of lasting value to you! The refinement of this craft, whether by hand, photograph, or digital manifest, is an on going process. I use digital enhancement opportunity at random and on any image to make it more enjoyable to view. I've often been referred to as 'versatile' because of my tendency towards a variety of styles and subjects. It really is about inspiration of the moment... and hopefully inspiration that can last as long as eternity!
We have not arrived yet... but are in the constant process of getting there..
