Looking back on a road trip we took down to Big Sur a little over a year ago. It’s a magnificent coastal landscape we inhabit, a stunningly beautiful part of the world. Hope to make the same trip soon again with the same crew ;) | #bigsur

AT&T Park is a professional baseball stadium and home of the San Francisco Giants.  The ballpark sits along the edge of the San Francisco Bay and is infamous for its ‘splash hits,’ which are home runs that clear the 24-foot high right field wall and land in McCovey Cove.  South of McCovey Cove is China Basin Park, which has wonderful views of the Bay Bridge, AT&T Park, and San Francisco Bay.

The Heart of Big Sur with bioluminescence and a Perseids meteor. Congratulations to Ev Yorobe. “On our second night in Big Sur we were again blessed with mostly clear skies and the bioluminescence had become a little stronger. This was captured at McWay Falls and with the help of the glowing waves created the shape of a heart. The Perseids meteor shower was in full force as well. The foreground was lit by the light of the setting crescent moon,” says Ev. || Please show support to our guest artists by visiting their IG gallery.

TECHNIQUE & EXIF: Stacked • Nikon D750 & Nikon 14-24 2.8 • 20 seconds f2.8 ISO 6400 • 9 light frames and 2 dark frames.

Fog rolling in..
Most of the coastal vegetation survives on the moisture from the fog coming in from the sea.. there's not a lot of rain in this area. .

Lower Falls, McCloud River. At the beginning of August I attended a 5 day night photography with Brad Goldpaint. I used many of the new techniques I used to capture and process this image. If you are interested in night photography you simply can not go wrong with one of Brad’s workshops. He’s tagged in the photo.

This sunrise was a favorite of mine. It wasn't so much the beauty of the bridge, but it was the experience and awe of being the only one who was capturing this moment. I'm still baffled sometimes when I'm the only one in such an iconic place. .

Del Valle Regional Park is located 10 miles south of Livermore and is a part of the East Bay Regional Parks.  The park is over 4,000 acres and consists of numerous hiking trails that circumnavigate Lake Del Valle through the surrounding rolling hills.  On an early morning hike to capture the sunrise, I encountered this lone cow grazing next to the path and immediately set up my tripod to capture this scene before she moved along on her way.

Elephant seals aren’t the most graceful or handsome of animals.  But they sure know how to make sunbathing look sultry. 😎
•
When I photographed the rookery in June, it was 100% males.  The ladies don’t come around again until December, and the pups they give birth to in Winter are grown and gone by late Spring.  The tawny gold seal is a bit shabby as he is molting - or rather, going through a “catastrophic molt.” This means that they shed their skin and hair not over time but all at once, refreshing their hides in a matter of days or weeks.

The two jokers chillaxin’ on the sand in the foreground are #beachgoals for sure! 🌊☀️

Point Bonita is at the entrance of the Marin Headlands and is the site of the Point Bonita Lighthouse, as well as various retired military batteries.  The point is surrounded by the rough ocean waters that surge and crash against the craggy coast.  The trail down to the Point Bonita Lighthouse is a moderately steep, semi-paved trail that passes through the lush landscape of the Marin Headlands.  Since access to the lighthouse was closed until noon, and I was there just after sunrise, I took this photograph from the trail looking back towards the headlands and San Francisco Bay.

The more I take photos, the more I am taken by the story within a photo.  Who are these people?  What is this place?  Why do we find ourselves drawn in by one scene more than another?
•
I am also tiring of capturing the expected perspective, especially of places I have visited many times.  What is happening on stage is often less interesting than what is happening in the audience.
•
For your consideration, a makeshift film strip of the sunset scene I was supposed to be photographing.  Notice anyone, um, familiar?? 🤔

“Stargazing”
The Milkyway and a Perseid meteor over the Mount Laguna FAA radar tower. This was my second night of shooting with two @sonyalpha cameras and I still managing to miss all the Perseids. Lol. Finally got one while I setting up a timelapse on my @skywatcherusa Star Adventurer tracking tracking unit. What a beautiful show it was. Jeeze! This time I captured two hours of solid audio of the night on the @zoomsoundlab H5 far away from us, and the wind!🤙🏻

A verrrrry old (and very deceased) Bristlecone Pine tree surrounded by a small forest of younger specimens.
•
These majestic dead trees are called “snags” and resist decay for centuries due to the cold, dry climate of the White Mountains (see the white-washed hills of dolomitic stone in the background) and the extreme density of the pine wood.  At sunrise and sunset they catch the warm light of the sun and magically turn a shade of burnished copper.  No, that golden-orange hue is not PhotoShop wizardry...the trees truly do glow, each a wild tangle of flames as they greet the day or watch it fade.  I’m always mesmerized by the show. 🔥

Going #outofmycomfortzone for this post, but it’s all good.  Let me tell you why I’m half-dressed and flamenco dancing with an ancient tree.
•

First off, when I’m out in the middle of nowhere at 11,000 feet and see a beautiful portrait opportunity, the only model on hand is usually...me. 🙂  Most working models aren’t able or willing to do what I do, or go where I go.  But that doesn’t mean I let a good photo go untaken! Convenience is everything sometimes.  So into the shot I hop.
•
Second, the human body is a work of art.  I don’t care if you’re an 🍎, a 🍐, a 🔺, or a ◾️, we are all beautiful.  Embrace it.  Beauty - natural beauty - comes down to styling and pose and a willingness to own the stage.  When we discover our talents and accept that without flaws, we would not be human, then we are free to be ourselves.  Trust me on that one.  There are MANY outfits and poses that do not flatter my physique, yet why focus on what I don’t have (um, big boobs?  Sky-high Sophia Loren cheekbones?) and embrace what genetics was kind enough to give me.  All bodies are beautiful.
•
Third, I camp A LOT and I know a lot of women who do not because they fear the unknown of the outdoors.  Is it dirty? (Yes.) Will there be somewhere to shower? (Maybe.) Will animals eat me? (Pretty solid NO, 99.999% of the time.) I want women to see that the outdoor lifestyle isn’t scary.  And it’s not just about flannel and fleece.  We CAN do it in style.  Before I took this shot, I spent the night in the back of my car, “washed” my face with a wet wipe, and applied a little mascara and blush by way of my car visor mirror.  And I was the happiest I had been all week!  So yes, we can #campclassy, we can #campcouture, and we can still be #hardcoreoutdoor. 😎🙌
•
Would you like me to show you how? 🤔
•
That said...skirt is @jpgaultierofficial.  Bra (I can’t believe I posted a photo of me in a BRA) is @victoriassecret.  Tree is #bristleconepine and is waaaay more interesting than I am.  Though I do think we dance well together. 🖤

Took this last week as the smoke from the Holy Fire created a lot of smoke and haze in the sky, creating a very colorful sunset. I've been trying to get one of these water splashing shots for a while now. I was stoked to see this one once I loaded it on my computer. I was able to capture this much in part thanks to the 20 frames per second I get with my #sonya9 + my 100-400 GM telephoto lens.

The Bixby Creek Bridge is arguably one of the most iconic and photographed landmarks in Central California.  It is said to be Big Sur’s version of the Golden Gate, with its aesthetic design and magnificent location bolstering its popularity.  Besides taking the quick Instagram snapshot and motoring off, as many tourists tend to do, be sure to explore the area for different vantage points.  I found a small pullout on the southern side of the bridge and was able to pull over, hike up a small rise, and set up on the edge of a sheer drop to capture this scene.

For some reason I find clouds comforting in many ways. The sky doesn’t feel empty and there’s not a sense of loneliness. Weird maybe...

You never know who ya gonna meet out hiking. He was as interested in us as we were of him. A little nerve racking having an animal that big coming up to you quickly. (Un)fortunately my big black dog scared him off. #hikingadventures #hikenortherncalifornia #bestofthebay #biganimal #justaroundthecorner #adventuresinhiking #dontbeafraid #animalencounter #norcal #funtimes😎 #campingwithdogs #nikon100 #cowsofinstagram #cowseverywhere #optoutside #wildcalifornia_ #rawcalifornia #calthentic

Regrann from @steve_cattanach -  Heavy steel softened by the sunrise. Light changes everything.

Sunset silhouettes on the edge of what used to be the world’s largest indoor swimming pool, before it burned down in the summer of 1966.

Interesting how through the years the office view changes. This was one of the better spots...even though shuffleboard was lost when they built the park.

Sometimes, I appreciate light painting as I do in this photo. Other times,  I'm cursing the guy who wants to keep shining his light on the scene. Thanks @michael.dubrow for doing a great job lighting up Mobius Arch

Yesterday morning’s sunrise at the #patriarchgrove was nothing short of magical.  When I saw the blood red sun rising in a gilded purple sky, it was a race against time to find the perfect tree to frame it.

One minute, maybe two.  I honestly don’t know how I did it.  But I did.  I think I will just pat destiny on the back for this one. ❤️

Big Sur is the longest and most scenic stretch of undeveloped coastline in the contiguous United States.  It’s adored for its rugged coastline and mountain views, where the Santa Lucia Mountains rise abruptly from the Pacific Ocean.  Highway 1, or the Pacific Coast Highway, navigates this winding landscape and provides visitors with some of the most picturesque views of the coast of California.

Was hoping to view the meteor shower tonight, but Mother Nature had other plans. Dense, dense fog—as far as the eye could see. Came across this stand of tees on my way to the cloud-laden summit of San Bruno Mountain and decided to make lemonade out of lemons. And the lemonade turned out great. ☺️🌲☁️
