Since you've been photographing a long time, did you ever met my father, landscape photographer Philip Hyde?
I recognized David Leland Hyde's name as the son of Phillip Hyde
, the master landscape photographer.
has a very good blog on landscape photography, and David's email newletters are always interesting.
(as well as Carr Clifton) was one of the reasons I thought to explore the northern Sierras a few weeks back.
For anyone reading this who is unfamiliar with Phillip Hyde's
work, here is a link: http://www.philiphyde.com/home-p_1.html
