Great Photographer Discoveries

Art is a Switzerland of sorts… a neutral ground where many vectors of interest can come together. And so it was that Sergey Brin (founder of Google, in case his name rings a bell) , Thomas Hawk, Gordon Laing, Karen Hutton, Kelli Seeger Kim, and Chee Chew all came together to talk about the joy of photography and share a few discoveries we have made.

Daily Photo – The Secret Crystal Lake

This is the photo I discussed in the video above when we got around to the bit where we shared our own photos.

This remote lake was so icy cold.  You would think it’s about 33 degrees or something, right?  It felt like absolute zero.  I dropped a little piece of my tripod in here and my hand almost froze off trying to retrieve it.

In the distance you can see where the glacier comes into contact with the glassy lake; it gives a sense of the epic scale here.

    Brrr! Got a chill just looking at it. It was even a cold day yesterday here in San Diego – got down in the 50’s.  And it rained! Hey we’re not used to that.  What a gorgeous image.  You had to go to great lengths to get that, I imagine.
