Over the last few decades I’ve lived in several places around the world, but I’ve always come back home to California. This ongoing series will feature some of my favorite places in the state, and currently you can see images from the Redwood Parks in the north (Prairie Creek, Jedediah Smith and the Del Norte Coast Redwood Parks); Yosemite Valley (including El Capitan and Half Dome) and Bass Lake; Lake Tahoe, the ghost town of Bodie, Point Reyes, Mendocino and Mt. Diablo, just to name a few. Stay tuned for more to come.
