Petroglyphs and Storm Light, Eastern Sierra, California
It’s been very quiet on my actual blog site lately as far as comments go, and I can’t tell if everyone’s just reading it on Facebook now or if there’s some problem. If you are reading this on my actual blog site, and not Facebook, let me know by dropping a comment so I know you’re out there and that I don’t have a problem with my comments area…
Thought this would be a fun image since it’s about Ancient Ones spreading their news…
Okay..updated my link to THIS blog from your old one. Must have missed the change.
Cool. I am leaving the notice (my lasl blog post) on the old one for the next month, and then I’ll redirect in case anyone goes looking for the old url without the feed part so they’ll still find me.
Reading the blog through RSS Feed.
Great! thanks much.
Yes, I did use HDR for it, processed in Nik’s HDR Efex Pro, Earl. Thanks for visiting! I’m sorry I haven’t contacted you back (or did i in email??!) about getting together. It’s been a little crazy around here the past month!
Nice shot of the petroglyphs. Did you use HDR to make this image? Happy 2011 to you and Jed.
Love your work Brenda, new to your site. I love the emotionality of your work, the messages and emotion behind (within) the images. I believe our game is composition and expression, the ability of images to evoke the god within all things. You are there.
LOVE petroglyphs, and this HDR is one of the few really great interpretations I have seen. With the petroglyphs in the foreground receding to a glorious horizon it symbolizes from ancient to eternity to me, both in time, and timeless. Absolutely a stunning composition. This one is all world — so passionate.
Your passion shines through your work.
Hi Michael and welcome! So glad you like the work. I do feel a spiritual connection to all that’s out there in nature. And I love ancient sites in general. thank for you sharing your insights that this picture evoked.
I’m out here too but I have never commented here before so this is a first for me. I do drop by your site from time to time though and I should follow you more. Now there’s a resolution for the new year! And by the way, you have so many great pictures like this one here! And don’t you just love the Eastern Sierra! I think about retiring there sometimes. Just look at all the photo opportunity. I don’t think I would ever tire of it!
Thank you then for commenting just so I know it’s all being seen out there. No worries about not being able to visit everyday – there are so many blogs to read, not enough time even for me! Yes, I do love the E. Sierra very much. I travel too much by air to move there right now, it would require short hops to a larger airport and baggage would be a pain, but maybe late for me, too!
Hi again Brenda and just so you know, I am the Cynthia who often posts on big JB’s site. I have taken 3 of his workshops and if I think I can ever afford it again, I might take some more and will keep yours in mind. I’ve noticed you have some out of the Mountain Light Gallery. Maybe one day…. Oh, and if you have never stayed at the Joseph House B&B in Bishop, try it sometime. The rooms are lovely and the proprietors are great. I love staying there!
I noticed the exact same thing when I linked by blog feed up to Facebook. Very quickly, people began reading the blog feed on Facebook and leaving comments there, but rarely commented on my actual blog site. Facebook is taking over the world! 🙂
Yes it’s kind of a catch 22. I want to use Networked Blogs to post it on Facebook but then search-engine wise, there’s not as much activity on my own blog pages. Facebook gets all the ‘hits’ the way it’s currently done, good for them. But in the end, people are still seeing our blog posts, so that’s got to be good, too. Thanks, John!
Wow, I hadn’t thought about that. Hmm, perhaps I should stop using Networked Blogs – that is a very good point.
Anyway, still enjoying stopping by here. 🙂
Yup, still enjoying your posts… 🙂
Oh, goodie, Dave! Thanks. 🙂
I’m glad I stumbled across your site and I hope you get my comment! Would love to chat with you at some point and get caught up. It’s been so long.
Take care and Happy New Year!
Hi Liz! I’m glad you stumbled too! I’d love to catch up, I’ll call you soon. Working on a book proposal deadline at the moment…
I REALLY like this image. The strong foreground combined with appealing background is a winner.
Thanks Bob T. I love the eastern Sierra for the drama that we often get in those clouds over the range, don’t you?
Glad to find you again. I love your website and now I’ll start following your blog. The class I took with you–Smoky Mts 2007–was awesome and challenged my eye and creativity. I’m also going to do the Facebook thing and maybe some of my photographer friends will enjoy your site as well.
Happy New Year to you and may it be a healthy and prosperous 2011!
Happy New Year to you too Lin! Thanks for the comment.
I found you! I was one of those who had your old blog in my rss feed – that’s fixed now. My experience is that comments get a bit light around the holidays so you’ll probably see an uptick soon.
Are you implying that you are an “Ancient One”? I hope not, given what that would make me!
I’m so glad, Bob. I all the sudden realized while trying to go to sleep the other night that even though I was redirecting people to the new site, anyone with a FEED wouldn’t be getting any news. Glad I realized that!!
I’m seeing you on Facebook 1st and then clicking over to your blog. Keep posting Brenda!
you’re sweet to reply, Laurie – and I’ll keep blogging, for sure!
Still enjoying your work. Keep them up! Thumbs up for you!
Thank you Lemena!
Thanks, Michael – I truly appreciate it! They work! Whew – and I also posted a notice on my old blog site for people to redirect their feeds to this new site. So that will hopefully help. I think confused some people…
It was getting dark and stormier by the minute as we made these pictures but that light in the background was a bonus!
Lets see if your comments work…
Nice shot of the Petroglyphs too!
