November 6, 2020 — Point Reyes National Seashore, California Still absent from regular appearances in the blogosphere but I wanted to let you know that I’m still alive. Here’s a hint as to what I’ve been up to. A work in progress, but I’ll tell you: not a bit of color in this one, folks. (Nikon D500, Tamron 100–400mm f/4.5–6.3 Di VC USD.

November 6, 2020 — Point Reyes National Seashore, California The surf was particularly exuberant yesterday. Almost as if it knew something was about to happen. (Nikon D500, Tamron 100–400mm f/4.5–6.3 Di VC USD. RAW processing in DxO PhotoLab 4.0.1; Editing in Adobe Photoshop.) PS — I’m still deeply engaged in other activities and I shall return to regular blogging and to reading blogs as soon as I can. You’ll like what you see.

June 19, 2020 — Point Reyes National Seashore, California . . .Had Turner been on the beach at Point Reyes with a camera. Which, of course, he wasn’t. This is an experiment in ICM — Intentional Camera Motion. As one might expect, the subject was moving as well, as waves are wont to do. (Nikon D850, Nikon 24-120mm f/4G VR.

June 13, 2020. Silicon Valley, California. Submit. v. tr. 3. To present (something) to the consideration of judgement of another. Most of the other definitions involve demeaning oneself. Not something I cotton to. But that is the word used when one enters work into a juried exhibition and so that’s what I spent the better part of the past two days working on: selecting the works that I felt best represented the theme, on the […]

Dec 8, 2014 — Point Reyes National Seashore, California Another archive dive. The image came to me in a dream recently. There was nothing special about the original shot — but today I was in search of a good starting point. Those pixels never knew what hit them… Be well. Do good. Create.

November 16, 2019 — Blue hour, Point Reyes National Seashore How many movies have you seen that were “based on a true story” or “based on historical events”? This is based on an actual blue hour as seen from the south end of the Point Reyes Peninsula, looking north. (Canon G5X II. RAW processing in DxO PhotoLab 3.0; Editing in Adobe Photoshop.)

December 8, 2018 — Point Reyes National Seashore Mr. Red Tail sat on a rock about fifty yards down a ravine, in perfect view but with his back to the camera. I waited. And waited. With scant warning he took flight, heading out to sea before turning a tight one-eighty and coming right at me. No. Not at me. At his next perch. He picked his spot. Flared. And grabbed his rock. He gave me […]

Point Reyes 3: Silence

California / Inspiration / Photography / Point Reyes / Seascapes

All you can hear is the breeze, the waves, the birds. Silence promotes calm. Calm brings about refection and realization. Recognized many times before but confirmed through repetition: Although there are those who try to create chaos in the world, it’s up to me to decide whether I want to respond in kind or to disagree with an automatic knee jerk and maintain my own conviction that the basic good in the majority of people […]
