Photo Log / Photography / Seascapes

I spent some time on the Holidays going over work from years gone by. I find that when I do this, I come across treasures that were overlooked the first time around.




The first two were taken in 2014 on the Sonoma County coast north of Jenner and the third was taken in July 2018 on the San Mateo County coast near Pescadero.

I wasn’t particularly in search of any of these scenes on the days they were taken. I was just on my way from one place to another and there they were—hence the fact that they were all taken on (good) pocket cameras rather than on pro gear. This once again proves that the best camera is the one you have with you.

All of these have been placed in the Horizons galleries on my AMAGA Photography website.

(Sony RX 100 and Canon G7X II. Shot RAW and post-processed in DxO Photolab 2 and Photoshop.)

    • Thank you very much. The images have not yet been printed. Regarding the last one, I do envision a metallic paper – but very subtly metallic. I want it to very subtly glow, but not shine in any way. But we will see. I will try it both with subtle metallic, and matt and see which works best. The first two would do better with matt paper.

    I look at these and instantly want to see more. These cloud photos are so voluptuous they make me want to eat them!
