It's Winter but in the Eastern Sierra right now, there isn't much snow. I'm here on Rick Knepp's Winter Photography in the Mono Basin workshop. I think this is the third time my friends have let me tag along with them to come to this workshop.
Every year it's completely different. This year, Tioga Pass is open. We drove through Yosemite to get here. And as an added surprise, the road to Bodie was open! That meant I got to take photos of dusty books, peeling wallpaper and other gritty subjects through dirty windows. This was all before the Winter workshop even began. Having only been to Bodie once before, this was a real treat.
