Dr Marm never without my Nikon!

Coastal Views

Amazing to watch the birds zipping along the very windy rocky cliffs.

Fun with wind and updrafts!

Gorgeous day with blustery winds and pounding surf.

Wonder how old these formations are?

A long way down to the lighthouse

  These are some of the images from a fabulous trip to the coast.

The trick to visiting the lighthouse is to go right when it is closing.  Last entry down the 300+ stairwell is at 4:15.
The benefit was being able to shoot the lighthouse with no people around!

  2. Beautiful images! I’m green with envy over the Pt. Reyes shots…..Doug has visited and shot there but I’ve never been there.

    Congrats on the new photo blog! I’ll be keeping up with it to see what new images you’ve been capturing.

    • Thanks for checking it out:) I am loving the blog options!

      As far as Pt. Reyes, let me know when you’re ready to come out–you both are welcome anytime:) Animal central–but lots to shoot near by:) plus, lots of happy critters here!

      Take care,

      • I’m so glad that you’ve got the blog up and running Laura….that’s a huge step! Doug got me into the blogging and despite the fact that he’s much more prolific in his posts, I love it. It’s a fun way to connect….a bit like a public diary of sorts….with show and tell via the images.

        Where in California do you live? Doug has visited San Francisco, Yosemite and Pt. Reyes a few times in the past and fell in love with it. So we’ve got our “California Here We Come” fund going and we hope to visit those places to do a shooting vacation. Whether it is this year or not will depend on what book projects that he is working on and when the deadlines hit. But fingers are crossed. It would be so great to meet you when we make the trip….and shoot together of course. I know that you’ve much like us….the camera is like another appendage that you cannot leave behind!

        If you have any questions about the blogging (sizing photos and the like) send me an email. Doug does books on that kind of stuff and if we can offer some help here and there we’d love to.

        regards

  3. Thank you so much for your support!

    Just feel so fortunate to meet fabulous people like you and Doug via twitter. Amazing how the miles and distance allow us to connect and learn from one another:) You two were the first photographers I connected with and I am most thankful for that! What rich views and knowledge you share! Also mucho thanks for my first “Follow Friday”, way back when–still touching:)

    I am near Sacramento. About 2 hours from San Francisco, the coast, Lake Tahoe, and Yosemite (depends where you want to go there–could be a bit further!) Plus, Sacramento has a lot of waterways with phenominal views. A lot of Gold Rush history is of course right here! Tons to shoot within a short radius.

    We are about 6 hours from L.A. proper–depending upon the speed of your car!

    Let me know when you’ll be here, we can have some Lensbaby fun:)

    Cheers and best wishes!

    Laura
