+++Today's Location+++

Look what I saw on the east shore of Lake Berryessa, on inauguration day! Not close enough for a great picture, but still I hope shows a favorable augury.


Lake Berryessa, Ca. Jan. 20, 2021.

First, my apologies for bringing up a political subject in a forum that some feel should be devoid of political opinion.


I spent today reflecting on the merits of public lands in the U.S., and the potential outcome of turning over Federal lands to the states, and subsequent sales of those lands to private individuals and companies. The possibility of this transfer is more realistic today with the recent bill passed by the House, making it easier to transfer Federal land to the states, and the inauguration of Donald Trump.


The view in this photo is on Federal land, but is within 1/4 mile of evaporite ponds that cover a significant area near Moab Utah ( The ponds are used to concentrate potash, a potassium bearing mineral used largely in fertilizer. (BTW my father was one of the chemical engineers who consulted in the construction of this plant in the early 1960's, so my early well being is tied in small part to its existence)


Clearly the current use of this land has merits in enhancing food supply for humans. However this area is also heavily used for recreation. It is conceivable that this area would be used to enhance the production of the potash mine, and become one of the next evaporite ponds., which are already quite visible from Dead Horse Point, the high point on the mesa in the center of the skyline. Access to this scenic area and the White Rim road may also cease. It would enhance the profits of the company that operates this mine, and may increase the supply of potash, of which the U.S. produces about 2% of the world's production. It would also seriously compromise the aesthetic value of the area. Is the loss of public access to this land, and the loss of tourist money worth the benefits to greater potash production? This is only a hypothetical possibility- as far as I know there is no plan for increased use of the area for evaporite ponds, but it provides a reasonable scenario, given the sentiment in the Utah state government.


My hope is that those in power will properly weigh the pros and cons of use of Federal lands, and the potential for transferring those lands to the states. Let's keep public lands public. Let's also remember people need to make a living. The two are not antithetical.


Photographic note: this is a 3 photo stack to enhance the sharpness throughout.

The Washington Monument and shining lights from the Mall. Bidden and Harris did well today

Today marks a great day in American History with the inauguration of Joe Biden. He inherits multiple ongoing crises exacerbated by Donald Trump, from the pandemic to severe racial and political divisions. May today mark the end of this very difficult time for America.


Today is also the last full day to pre-order my photobook #NotMyPresident: Five Years of Resisting Trump on Kickstarter (accessible via The book documents nonviolent First Amendment actions taken against Trump’s presidency. Thousands of people from all walks of life stood up against authoritarianism and cruelty for five years.


These nonviolent protestors are the heroes who stood up and demanded change throughout the years. My book highlights them and their actions.


Please consider getting your copy of #NotMyPresident: Five Years of Resisting Trump now before it is too late.


Be safe today, my friends.

Inauguration day schedule: our guide to the day Trump becomes president


Donald Trump will be sworn in as US president at a ceremony in Washington DC, and will attend a parade and inaugural balls

Donald Trump is due to be sworn in as the 45th president of the United States. Thousands of people have travelled to Washington DC to watch the events in person – or to participate in protests against them.


6am EST/11am GMT: Security screening gates open to the public. Ticket holders will enter one of six areas, depending on the colour of their ticket, according to the joint congressional committee on inaugural ceremonies (JCCIC).


Trump will begin the day by having coffee with Barack Obama. Then he will go to a service at St John’s church, according to NBC Washington.


7am EST/midday GMT: The Answer (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism) Coalition is planning a protest at Freedom Plaza.


11.30am EST/4.30pm GMT: The swearing-in ceremony begins. The United States Marine Band will play first, according to the inauguration programme. There will be readings by faith leaders and remarks from the Missouri senator Roy Blunt, chair of the JCCIC. The Missouri State University Chorale will play, before the vice-president-elect, Mike Pence, takes the oath of office. Next comes the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.


Midday EST/5pm GMT: Trump will be sworn in around this time. The oath of office will be administered by the chief justice, John Roberts. Trump then gives his inaugural address and additional readings. Jackie Evancho, 16, who rose to fame on the TV show America’s Got Talent, will sing the national anthem.


A few notable anticipated attendees at the ceremony include Rosalynn Carter, Jimmy Carter, Laura Bush, George W Bush, Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton.


Afternoon: The JCCIC has planned the traditional inaugural luncheon, to take place in National Statuary Hall at the Capitol. Four years ago Obama and guests dined on steamed lobster and hickory grilled bison. The menu for this year’s luncheon includes Maine lobster and Gulf shrimp, Seven Hills Angus beef, and chocolate soufflé and cherry vanilla ice cream for dessert.


3pm EST/8pm GMT: The inaugural parade. There has been some controversy over a few of the groups slated to perform, including the marching band from Talladega College, a historically black college in Alabama, and the Marist College Band, from Poughkeepsie, New York. Additional college and high school bands and other groups from around the country will participate, as well as national groups such as the Boy Scouts of America, Wounded Warrior Project, and representatives from each military branch, to name a few.


Evening: The Trumps and Pences will attend three official inaugural balls, according to the presidential inaugural committee. Two, titled “Liberty and Freedom: The Official Presidential Inaugural Balls”, will be held at the Walter E Washington Convention Centre, with Sam Moore, the Piano Guys and the Rockettes listed among the performers. The Salute To Our Armed Services Ball will take place at the National Building Museum.

Unofficial events are also planned. The Creative Coalition has hosted a bipartisan inauguration night gala fundraiser for the past 20 years, and this year is no different. It lists a number of celebrity hosts, including the actors Tim Daly, John Leguizamo and Christina Hendricks. The Great Gatsby Presidential Inaugural Ball, hosted by Dardanella, a party company, will take place at the National Portrait Gallery. Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington will host its Pink Ball at the Carol Whitehill Moses Centre, and the Anti-Inauguration will take place at the Lincoln theatre, according to the Washington Post.


Protests #DisruptJ20 says it will hold a few events on the day, including a Festival of Resistance, which will march from Union station to McPherson Square; other protests are also planned.


10am EST: An interfaith prayer service will be held at Washington’s National Cathedral.


The Women’s March on Washington sets off from the intersection of Independence Avenue and Third Street SW, near the US Capitol. More than 200,000 people are expected to participate. March organisers announced a lengthy list of speakers for the event including: Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America; television host Janet Mock; Rhea Suh, president of the Natural Resources Defence Council; activist Angela Davis; actors America Ferrera and Scarlett Johansson and many, many more. There will also be performances by Janelle Monae and Maxwell, among others.


Numerous “sister marches” are planned across the country and around the world.

In summer 1993 the Great Arctic Rerserve (Zapovednik) was established at the northern coasts of Taymyr. An international (WWF) delegation took part in the inauguration in Dudinka and in the field. The Taymyr peninsula is covered by the most extensive and northernmost tundra habitats in Siberia. These enormous wetlands are used during the short Arctic summer by millions of waterbirds, which winter in Southern Europe, Southern Asia and Africa. The biodiversity of the Taymyr peninsula is with 20% well covered with different kinds of protected areas. However, there may be need to connect them by South-North corridors to secure adaptation of biodiversity moving North with climate change. With increased warming and thawing of tundra massive release of methane stored in the ground could trigger further climate change.

Inauguration of President Bill Clinton, January 1993

I'm pleased to announce that this shot was 'Highly Commended' by the judges of the Take a View - Landscape Photographer of the Year 2012 competition in the Urban Category. Hugely chuffed about this. It's going to be on display as a printed copy at the National Theatre in London from the 12th November until the 12th January 2013. The shot also appeared in yesterdays Sunday Times - which is just fabulous - over the moon.


Apparently the book is out already - I haven't seen a copy - but judging from the shots in the Times yesterday its going to be fabulous - some really amazing shots - very much looking forward to seeing them.


As for the shot - well this was pretty much the last shot before my ill fated trip to the bottom of the Thames on the Shard's Inauguration night, so its the last shot I have with my D300 - which was smashed up in the fall. It was taken from across the river - slightly elevated along with hundreds of other photographers - I was surprised at just how many had turned out - it seems such a long time ago now.

Partied with 16 girlfriends today. They came for lunch and to watch the 44th president's inauguration. Saw this reflection and grabbed my camera.


Mimosa inside!

Post-inauguration, we decided it was easier to walk back to Virginia rather than try to fight for a spot on the shuttle bus or metro train. They had mostly blocked off the 14th Street bridge for pedestrians to do just that. I think we had about a mile left to go at this point.
