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. (Nikon D850, Nikon 24-120mm f/4G VR. RAW processing and initial editing in DxO PhotoLab 3.3; Final editing in Adobe Photoshop.)

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 […]

Dec 24, 2018. Sonoma County Coast, California. Hidden in the Archives, waiting to be coaxed into being. Took some coaxing, but I believe the pixels are happy. (This is exactly what I said in the June 8, 2020 post. This shot was taken 54 seconds later. The technical info is corrected here, though.) (Nikon D850; Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 DI VC USD Zoom.

Cream

Jan 18, 2012 — Sonoma County Coast, California An old favorite reimagined. If you look, you’ll see Point Reyes way off in the distance. The sky is creamy. The best camera is the one you have with you. The Canon S95 was one of the first pocket cameras to have a larger sensor, allow full adjustments including Manual, and to provide RAW files. The RAW files were only 8-bit, which didn’t allow much flexibility in […]

Texture and Tone. Again.

January 17, 2012 — Sonoma County Coast, California Returning with new eyes to a shot taken eight years ago. I’ve just competed a series of webinars by Bruce Percy. He describes himself as a black and white photographer working in color. His sensitivity to tonal balance is inspirational and very instructive. This shot is pretty much the same as the way I left it the last time I worked on it almost three years ago, […]

Chewy — World Traveler

All over the world Every year, our friends and family waited with bated breath for our Christmas card. Every year we presented a photo of far-flung locales with the Muse and I and the boy. Sometimes the scenes happened almost as shown. We began the tradition in 2007 on the Sonoma County Coast. I told a business associate that we had to rent a helicopter to get the tree onto the rock. She believed it. […]

Light on the Horizon

January 23, 2017 — Sonoma County Coast, California Rescued from the archives. I think the thing that appeals to me about glints of light on horizons is that I would prefer to think that there is a glint of light on the horizon — no matter how distant the horizon may be. And there is, provided it is we as individuals who supply the light — no matter how distant the horizon may be. I’ll […]

Look Enough And You’ll See

December 24, 2018, Sonoma County Coast. I’ve looked at this frame approximately 9,476 times* and failed to see its potential. Today, I saw it with different eyes.** Don’t it make my brown eyes blue. Except they are blue. Be well. Do good. Be kind. Create. (Nikon D500; AF-P NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6E ED VR.

A Remarkable Day — Quicksilver Sea

December 23, 2017, Sonoma County Coast. This was taken about two hours before the shot in the last post. This is what this most remarkable day looked like. No post-processing except to straighten the horizon 1/10 degree (hand-held shot) and tone down the white at the top of the frame a just as tiny little bit. That’s it. It was a quicksilver sea. The Pacific was living up to its name. Be well. Be kind. […]
