PASO ROBLES, CA October 30, 2023 A retired software engineer, Strahl is an “in-the-moment” photographer who finds inspiration in nature. “Light is my guide. Where it leads, I follow—camera in hand—as it paints color and shadow, emphasizing lines and shapes, shifting its magic from moment to moment. I am a traveler, but wherever I go, it’s the light that calls to me, offering new perspectives and revealing bits of the world in a way I’ve never seen before. Whether it’s the warm afterglow of a sunset on Half Dome in Yosemite, a rare white lion cub in Africa, the amazing blue color of an iceberg in Alaska, or a beautiful sunset in Morro Bay or Montana de Oro, my camera grants me a personal window to the world, allowing me to capture an image frozen in time . . . and make it mine.” Strahl’s photographic exhibit, called “Alaska Is Calling,” will include scenery and wildlife from her four trips to Alaska.
