Your photos and trail description to Sierra Point View in Yosemite brought back pleasant memories. Back in the 60s I would climb to Sierra Point on my way to Nevada Falls and Upper Yosemite Valley. Back then I would camp in Camp 4; now, in my 70s, I stay at the Ahwahnee. I also live in California and enjoy annual trips to Ojai, Big Sur and Yosemite among others. A somewhat unknown photo op is Highway 33 from Ojai north to the Santa Barbara Pastachio Co. There's an interesting book describing this section of 33 from Ojai to Cuyama.

Enjoyed your wide and deep photograph selection! Do you come from Canada by any chance? Do you have cousins Beverley, Heather, Greg & Susan? Aunt Irene is the last of her generation in our family. She is 94! Post a pic of a Canadian twenty dollar bill if you are my cousin, thanks! heather

I have seen your surf shots on pbase and really like your work. I have a new photography forum and we have a section dedicated to surfing where you can share your work, get comment/critique on it, and can also help others by leaving comment/critique on their work. We have a really great group of guys on there and would love for you to join and share you work too.
Hope to see you on the site

Dear Gary,a sincere thank you for your comments on PSP and Elements. Had a go at Elements 2 (it came with an Epson printer) and didn't like the interface. Downloaded PSPX, and found it very similar to PhotoPaint, which I have used since 1997. As I am nearly seventy, not that keen on SOME new learning experiences. Now to spend some time looking at your pics, which will be a useful learning experience.

Beautiful gallery Gary, I have been to Santa Cruz so memories flood back I love your Nth Bay shots especially the Redwoods, I did visit Armstrong Woods so I know the feeling in these forests the amazing tranquility.

Best Wishes
Guest 07-Aug-2005 15:37
I love all your Yosemite galleries. We will be visiting this October for some fall colors. I have not been back there since 1992 and I'm sure El Capitan and the rest of the sceneries are just as breathtaking as before.
Betty Dollar 26-May-2005 09:53
I am in awe. I just bought a Panasonic FZ20 and am in absolute learning mode. My frustrations turn to determinations when I see output like yours. Thank you.
Bruce Doucet 12-Jul-2004 12:13
Gary, Whenever i get extra time I find myself returning to your galleries and usually spend far too much time looking in Awe. Great Work!
Tim/catalina 24-Jun-2004 06:56
I like your work, esp. Catalina Island: How can I help show them off? I have a site.
G.Davis 10-Apr-2004 04:09
Inspiring to see the range of your work. Thank you for sharing.

I grew up in Sacramento, and was in the Coast Guard, stationed in Morro Bay for a short time in 1987. Your work brings back some great memories. Thanks much.

This is Coastal from OlePro & C2100 . .it has taken me a while to find you, but I love the galleries. Inspiring. All I have to do now is get my Oly fixed & I'll be right there with you! "course, I need some talent too, but that's a minor detail. ^_~ I have a pbase gallery too & I'd leave you a link but I haven't figured out how to do that yet *sigh*
Thanks for all your help Gary . .happy to "see" you around.

capri 04-Jul-2003 15:58
OH MY GOD I'M SSSOOO missing you guys now!!!! Gary I didn't know your pictures were SO awesome! It was like being RIGHT THERE. Take me a while but I'll look through them all. You need to go to the Renaissance Faire for me too:)!!~~Seaya~~
Marc Kurth 04-Jul-2003 01:37

I've been watching your collection grow - I get more impressed as time goes on. I live in Morro Bay and I'm pretty sure that we have shot side-by-side, your shots blew mine out of the water. (I remember seeing your Olympus with the telephoto extenders hanging off the end of your lens :-))

I just HAD to compliment your photography - it's really something special.

Infrared advise needed
I have a new Canon A70 camera. The filter I am using is a Tiffin #87 filter. It is black, and sees only IR light.
The results I am getting are very Infrared, indeed, but the focus is crap. How is it your pics are so sharp? I know the G1 does great IR...but still.....
Could it be the filter I am using is too much for the camera? I am going to get a r72 filter also.
Any ideas on how to focus? What do you do?
PauloCGama31-May-2003 00:59
Congrats!! You've got amazing images!! Rgds.
Rebecca 30-Dec-2002 09:40
I am in complete awwww of your eye for nature, and yet your sense of humor around it. I love your selection of rainbows at the sea and most definatly your series of pictures of the BIG waves, enjoyed those very much. ---- Rebecca
Val Sharp29-Nov-2002 17:29
Very much enjoyed your galleries ... excellent photography, and amusing captions. Thanks for showing what can be done.

The nighttime missile launch photos....AWESOME...

Chris 23-Sep-2002 05:38
I relly love the infrared pics. I have a c2100 and was wondering where you bought both of the filters (#87 and 72). There is no place here in town that sells these filters and I really want to take some IR pics before the leaves fall off the trees. Also do you know of any other filters in the IR range will work (87c or 89)?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Once again GREAT PICS

From Bakers Beach to Bakersfield, interesting trip . Lovely image of Golden Gate, not that their could be "bad" ones, I remain "attached" to the bridge, having walked on it opening day. Famoso not quite Bakersfield, but interesting historical link. With mom's family from Shasta, Dad's from Pomona, you happened to traverse the whole terrain. Huge collection, thanks for public access.

Hi Gary,
Love your pics of the Winternationals. I live near Joliet, IL, and have been to several national events there. I've been taking notes of your settings for the actions shots, as I hope to get some nice pics at the Fall Nationals,(gonna miss the spring event due to new baby on the way sometime in June). Did you use any filters? How about a tripod? I'm kinda new to digital photography. I'm still breaking in my new Sony DSC-S85.

Again, great job!
Bob 28-Jan-2002 18:39
Hi Gary..
love your work !
I just got a 2100 acouple of weeks ago and really love it !
I was wondering if you have gotten any attachments for your 2100 yet and if so what have you picked up ??
Is there any groups dedicated to the 2100 ???
eric 14-Dec-2001 22:54
This is a great site to put your fine pictures, Gary. I think I may move from Webshots...

And thanks too for all your assistance in Oly300-400
Don 05-Dec-2001 20:37
Hello there Gary, I saw a link to your site in and as I've just recently bought an Olympus C-2100, I thought I'd check out a few photos. I must say that I'm truly astounded at the quality of your pics. I'd be happy with just one shot half as good as any of yours. Excellent work and a pure joy.
Dan Reid 04-Nov-2001 15:45
Thanks Gary for your help regarding smartmedia cards.
Rick 01-Nov-2001 04:44
I really enjoy your art. How do you like the C2100UZ? Any drawbacks? What other filters have you tried?
Tami Devore 19-Oct-2001 12:57

I think your photos are wonderful! I really like the infrared pics. I am looking at starting a photog business with digital. I am really looking
forward to it, I just hope I do as well as what you have with your pics. Thanks for all the advice about the cameras you gave on the ole' pro site.
You really sound like you know your stuff.

Thanks again,
