August 17, 2020 — Sonoma County Coast, California There was a guy in England, an RAF officer, he was. A cracking good pilot. He lived at the RAF Aerodrome, which he and all his mates called the ’Drome. He was an affable guy; extremely well thought of. Popular. He had an easy way about him. He also had a unique talent. He was completely ambidextrous. No matter what he did, he could do equally well […]

August 18, 2020 — Sonoma County Coast, California This time looking south. Camera was moved, intentionally. Again. A very different evening. There had been lightning a couple nights previous.

August 12, 2020 — Marin County Coast, California It’s easier to have one’s head in the clouds if the clouds are at or only slightly above sea level. The California coast is famous for sea-level clouds in the summer. We locals call it fog. (Nikon D850, Nikon 24-120mm f/4G VR.

December 6, 2013. Sonoma County, California. This shot had been and also-ran from a shoot that has produced a couple of other pictures that I’ve posted here. It just seemed that it was too much like another one […]

July 12, 2020 — Marin County Headlands, California I did a lot of ICM pans while waiting for the comet NEOWISE to appear over Mount Tamalpais on July 12. The RAW file of this shot had been sitting in archives since then, several times passed over as an also-ran. Today I saw it with new eyes. It had potential. Every single element took part in the slow pixel dance, changing color, tone, and contrast relationships […]

July 10, 2010. San Gregorio Bluffs, San Mateo County, California. On my way from Silicon Valley to San Francisco, I decided on the spur of the moment to take the scenic route. Web Cam showed some coastal clouds and I was hoping to get a sun-dappled sea. All I had with me was trusty MiniCam™ — my Canon G5X II. (The best camera is the one you have with you, so have something decent with […]
