Ghost Lights - The True Gold of Bodie
Just as our photography group was about to leave Bodie, we spotted lights, golden lights, shining into the dusk, seemingly from the interior of a row of old buildings. It was as if the spirits in this ghost town were preparing to settle in for a long autumn night.
The Ghost of Bodie
There are stories about ghosts in Bodie. Are they true? We used a special, one shot camera technique to capture this ghostly image.

Yes, there is something sad about autumn - the Sun will soon cede much of its power, and the long night of the winter season will hold sway over the landscape. Yet almost paradoxically, here at the base of the mighty Sierra Nevada, autumn is one of the happiest times of the year, returing to delight us again and again and again, as long as there is an Earth.

Will Someone Please Help Me Up!
Damn - I'm old! I seem to dropped a lot of my own leaves as I approach the final season of my life. A little touch of age-related back pain made it a bit difficult to crouch down to make this photo, and even more difficult to stand again. But age is relative, and I will probably have a few falls left in me be before I lay down my cameras for the long winter.

June Lake Loop
Variety within one season: one group of aspens have completely lost their leaves, while those above are in high color - together the create a beautiful image of the meaning of autumn: change.
