Jurors of the Arts Council of Monterey County just selected two of my photographs “Dramatic Flight” (a White-Tailed Kite) and "Mt Toro Snowstorm" for display at Monterey County Supervisor's Chambers through Fall 2012.
I've been invited to give a photographic slide show and discussion Monday Sept 19th in Pacific Grove at Forest Hill Manor.
Due to a (very) special event, you might see a few of my Big Sur Landscapes at The Clement on Cannery Row - today only. The Clement has its own rather special view of our Monterey Bay.
More Good News: After a wonderful show, my photographs have been awarded an extended display at Big Sur's Camaldoli Hermitage Gallery.
Big Sur lost Barbara Spring this weekend. She was a noted wood sculptor of human characters, creating installations until the very end of her 94+ energetic years. Her work is owned by numerous private collectors and public museums.
The first color photograph was publicly shown 150 years ago today. Ahhhh, colors . . . what a treat. Reference: http://www.newscientist.com/blogs/shortsharpscience/2011/05/happy-birthday-colour.html
Update: June 18 Yosemite and Big Sur roads are all open. Yosemite's Tioga Pass opened June 18. Big Sur's Alder Creek opened June 9. Big Sur is open to the North at Rocky Creek (one lane at a time). The South Coast is closed at Alder Creek for another month, but Nacimiento-Ferguson Rd is open....
On a recent wilderness photography hike I kept getting wafts of an odd scent. Was the mysterious odor in my clothes, or hat? After a few hours a light went on as I recognized the smell as beer. That was odd, because I don’t drink beer.
While the vehicle closure of our Big Sur road at Rocky Creek / Bixby Creek may be lifted this weekend, here's a couple of related things you might appreciate. 1. The slide at Rocky Creek occurred because the road at the specific location was built on dirt - not rock. There is bedrock on both...
Update June 9, 2011: Highway 1 through Big Sur is open all the way from Carmel to San Luis Obisbo. Alder creek slide is cleared. Update April 15: Cal-Trans said at least one lane at Rocky Cr. / Bixby Cr. could be open by April 25th. Unfortunately, Alder Creek (South Coast) slid again and is...

(Jan 31, 2011) Tom Davies and I had a fabulous Art Opening Party at Big Sur's Camaldolese Hermitage Gallery this past Sunday. More than a dozen friends "braved" the rain showers to caravan along the exciting scenic excursion from the Peninsula.
Here is a prototype product that allows you to see images in three (3) dimensions - without any special glasses.
You might enjoy knowing we just set the date for my Gallery opening (and party) at Big Sur's serene Camaldolese Hermitage in the spectacular heights above above Lucia, about an hour south of Carmel. Come and join us: January 30, Sunday 2-4 pm. May we all have a wonderful, happy, healthy and successful year, -David www.InspiringLandscapes.com
I thought you might enjoy this with me. Especially since it was put on by a Science magazine (NewScientist) in England and the theme was light. (I think it won because of my explanation even more than the delight of the image.) Here's the page announcing my image that won a Photography Contest in London...
Jurors of Arts Council of Monterey County selected "Endangered Condor, Big Sur" for display outside County Supervisor's Chambers. ("Proving the Universe does have a sense of Humor" -Robin Salsburg)
Three of my poems were displayed at the London Design Festival in Trafalgar Square by the 8 Laser drawing robots of the Outrace Project (click below to see videos): 1. "We do not fall in love, but we can fall in lust. We only grow in love." 2. Love is proportional to the amount of...
