3)  Yosemite National Park – The Falls are full.

Joyce and I had the joy and privilege of spending three days in Yosemite late in April.  Thanks to our first good Winter in several years, the melting snow is currently creating beautiful, thunderous water falls.  Be sure to check my website www.frankleonardphotography.com in coming weeks to view more photographs from this trip.

4)  Telescope Observatory Update

Progress on the building of an observatory for my telescope and astrophotography equipment is well under way.  When completed, I will have many more opportunities to create and share with you astro photographs from my awesome dark sky location in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

5)  Seacave Photoshoot. with Marya Stark

Also this past month I had the privilege of once again being able to work with Marya Stark.  We shot in a sea cave at a time when low tide enabled us to enter the cave, and the angle of the sun created a sunbeam of light in through a hole in the top of the cave.  Here again, there will be more photos to follow.  Be sure to check my website.

6)  Next Month’s June Show – Pure Pleasure, Santa Cruz
.
In June I will have a show at Pure Pleasure in Santa Cruz.  It is always a privilege to be hosted by Amy and Janis Baldwin who have so graciously given me space for shows many times over the years.  This show will be the second show in their brand new downtown Santa Cruz location.  More details in my next newsletter.
.
That’s it for this month, good people!  Hope to see you this coming Friday night at OM Gallery, 1201 Pacific Avenue, 5-9pm.  It’s a great show, with a very unique, new look to my photography, and I would LOVE to share it with you!
