Fall in the Eastern Sierras, 2014

Young Aspens, 2014

While the Fall color is just now beginning to show among the maples, oaks and other deciduous trees here in the Bay Area, these young Aspen trees growing on the Eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada were already past their prime three weeks ago when I took this picture. Nonetheless, even though they had lost much of their bright yellow foliage, their beauty was not lost on me.

Charlotte Gibb is a contemporary fine art photographer based in the San Francisco Bay Area specializing in landscapes of the Western United States. Her images are often taken in familiar places for the well-versed landscape photographer, but she prides herself on her keen eye toward the subtle and sometimes overlooked beauty of the natural world. Growing up among the beautiful mountains of Northern California, she considers herself a student of life, learning about people, nature, music, and photography along the way. But always, her life-long passion for the wilderness shines through it all. Charlotte earned her Bachelor of Arts degree from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco and has exhibited her work in several solo shows throughout California. Her darkroom, long gone now, has been replaced with digital darkroom tools, and her style has evolved from a somewhat journalistic approach, to one that pays tribute to the natural world.
