Fall color and landscape photography in eastern California

Another fall workshop in the Eastern Sierra Mountains of California (my 20th year) has come and gone. We had a great group, amazing weather, fabulous fall colors and a full “Hunter’s” moon. Photos below include the locations of Lone Pine, Mono Lake and the ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest.

Next stop is the Red Rock country of southwestern Utah to photograph the glowing aspens and cottonwoods among the backdrop of Utah’s red rock country and Zion National Park.  Hope to see you there!

My friend, Bill Fortney

Jack Graham & Bill FortneyPlease click HERE to read Bill’s recent post on his blog. Bill Fortney and I have been great friends for many years. Bill has not only been an inspiration, but a driving force in my passion for photography. We have always talked about doing a few workshops together after Bill’s retirement from Nikon Professional Services. This workshop in NE Ohio is the first of 3 we have on the schedule.

Working with Bill is like a baseball player learning how to hit from Babe Ruth. What a feeling to be with my friend, let alone a legend in this business. It’s hard to describe the feelings, honor and pride that come from having Bill with me on my workshops.

I knew he was up to something, and Bill posted this article on his blog last Saturday night. For those of you who know me well know there are few times I am speechless … this is one. Thank you, Bill, for being here and for being my friend.You ARE the best!—JG
