This is a westward view from a lookout point situated near the Mammoth Ski Area and village. Mammoth is just at the eastern apex of the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California. From this point, one can see the surrounding family of Peaks that partially border Yosemite National Park.The day was an amazing day of clouds, sun, rain, cold, snow and then sunshine again.
I hope you like the Black and White rendition of this image shot way back in October, 2006.
** Staples Singers - "Respect Yourself"
- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)
- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.
::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"; Earth Wind and Fire
