|Mono Lake Sunrise, June 4, 2010|
Part-way into the year I found a publisher for the California landscape photography site guide I had started, and scope expanded to include all of Southern California from Mono Lake and Yosemite south! In 2015 it became available as "Photographing California Vol. 2 - South". Stay tuned for more guides in the near future!

Over 50 of my favorite photos from 2010:
Not being much of a fan of limits or rules, I'll show a couple of my favorite international travel photos, and also offer my favorite photos from family expeditions, including the growing photography interests of Nicole and Thomas Sullivan:
|Thomas on a Death Valley Dune Hike|
|Nicole was filmed for the movie Timescapes (seen here in Big Meadow near Bridgeport, Mono County)|
|Thomas with his first digital camera, 2010|
Thomas now has one of his Milky Way photos on the cover of a book of winners in the annual Astronomy Photographer of the Year contest, an international contest conducted by the Royal Observatory, Greenwich (home of Greenwich Mean Time: GMT).
|Nicole with her first digital camera, 2010|
Nicole later entered a photo in the California State Fair, entirely on her own initiative and effort from concept through execution and submission, and she won top honors in the Under-18 category.
Nicole currently has a part-time job as a photographer that helps her cover college expenses, and she volunteers at the local SPCA, including producing photographs of shelter animals, so they can be posted on Facebook for adoption.
