Backlit beauty. Shot a few years back, the scene today isn't as picturesque as it was years ago, but if you show up early enough in the morning, you'll see some amazing fall color as the light streams through the leaves. Uren Street, Nevada City

When day turns to night.
When I first started in photography and learning Photoshop (circa late 90’s), I was all about compositing images together, trying my hand at alternative realities and grouping of objects that were similar in their genre. This quickly led to some fun projects and further development of skillsets.
Although it was short lived, I’ve had a small yearning for digging up my old Photoshop composite skills that have been buried deep in the back of my brain. While everything I post on here is 99% of the time all done in-camera (meaning, no swapping out skies or different scenes to enhance an image), I decided to give it another go for fun.
Here’s a shot of (of course the Yuba!) the starry sky shot on a very early morning and the bridge and waters below was from a mild-spring day in May of last year.

By no means is this a “great photo”, but rather a culmination of many elements that made for a much-needed relaxing Sunday afternoon. After letting my kids know I was going for a hike, my youngest looked up from his Playstation game and chimed in, “I wanna go!”. Having a large family, one-on-on-time with my kids is absolutely cherished and I was more than happy to take my son, Sawyer, to one of my favorite places on the planet. It was an afternoon of petting pollywogs, chasing grasshoppers, meeting new dog friends, spying baby and mama deer in the woods nearby. It was also watching and listening to folks splash about in the Yuba waters, while taking in the gentle sounds of an acoustic guitar at the sandy beach below. I hope you too had a wonderful Sunday.
