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
Glenn McCarthy, Hemet, California Member Since March 2011 Artist Statement Welcome to McCarthy Art...the Glenn McCarthy Art and Photography website!
A Little Bit About Me
I became immersed in the business of art in 1989 as an owner and operator of three art galleries. Before that time, in the late 1970's, I was a marketer for Christian Graphics and Designs. Now, in the 21st Century, I have landed as a recorder and instigator of the imagination.
What I Do
I strive to capture scenes, moments, places or thoughts... and share a lasting impression to the viewer! My niche is not necessarily found in one style or theme ... but in the scenes that many might just pass right on by without noticing the small pleasures that they afford. Living life to it's fullest includes noticing those things, places or concepts that we take for granted. Perhaps we need to pause a bit more and enjoy a hot beverage along the way.
