March 19, 2021, Sonoma County Coast It is often my wont to have my way with nature. One of my favorite statements has been that what comes out of the camera is fodder for what happens later in the quiet of my office days, weeks, or years later. But not always. Sometimes it’s best to just stand aside and let Nature say it all. Whoopie! (Nikon D500, Tamron 100–400mm f/4.5–6.3 Di VC USD. RAW processing in […]

July 13, 2018 — San Mateo County Coast; February 24, 2021 — My Office In exploring the essence of the essence, I reimagined a few old favorites. This was shot in the late afternoon/early evening as sunrays found their way through low clouds/high fog on the coast. The subject, really, is contrast, texture, and glow. The philosophy is adding by taking away. What isn’t the picture? Remove it or reduce it. Distill. (Canon G7X. RAW […]

July 25, 2020 — San Mateo County Coast, California; September 20, 2020 — My Office Revisiting the same shot that was featured in the September 12 post. Same shot; different crop. Looking at this while absorbing the current scene led me to make the following observation: On either side of the line can be an infinity of nuance. But the line itself? Sharp. No ambiguity. That’s one reason why these views of the horizon bring […]

August 20, 2020 — PhotoPlace Gallery, Middlebury, Vermont A couple of months ago I submitted some photographs to three juried exhibits in different parts of the county. I’m happy to say one of my pictures was selected to be part of the Landscape exhibit at the PhotoPlace Gallery in Middlebury, Vermont. One selection out of three tries on the first time out ain’t bad, I’m thinking. The juror was Ann Jastrab, who is the Executive […]

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.

Is This Even a Place?

Yes, it is. As a matter of fact, it’s a view from about five hundred feet above sea level off the side of southbound California Highway 1 in Sonoma County. Originally shot in December 2013, this image sat in my archives for years. It didn’t sit there because I particularly wanted it to. It sat there because there’s evidence of a nasty lens aberration in the RAW file that several previous attempts at RAW processing […]
