This photo was taken during a recent Plein Air adventure with Yosemite Western Artists. This is the Bryceburg area where the Merced River meanders down from Yosemite National Park. It was taken in January in 70 degree temperatures. The River is very low because we have had very little rain or snow this winter.
Here’s hoping that the spring weather we’ve had for far too long in the middle of winter gives way to some rain and snow.
Some time ago, I was contacted by an independent film maker named Dave Wagner. He was doing a documentary on “The Blues Wizard” and had been ‘googling’ the internet to see if he could find any photographs of the man. Lo and Behold… years ago, I took a photo of the Wizard at a Oceanside Farmers Market and posted it on my website. Through the magic of the internet, he found that photo and asked permission to use it.
It took me a while to dredge the image out of old backup drives, but amazingly, I had the original photo. Dave used it for the cover of his DVD.
Alas, I didn’t get any fortune for my photo, but I did get credit…
(And Dave did go out of his way to correct the spelling of my name afterwards.)
