Dr Marm never without my Nikon!

An Old Boat…in it’s Glory

A Bit Tattered

So, where do old boats go for glory?  This one is shipwrecked in Marin County, California– near the small town of Inverness.  Can not imagine how many photographers this boat has lured in…count me in!

This day started off with a cloudy sunrise session at the base of The Golden Gate Bridge and kept getting better and better!   A windy drive for about one and a half hours brought me here.  Yes–did get turned around and had to also ask for directions.  So thankful I had not done this the night before in the dark!  But–I did find it!!

Was surprised to find cell service along this coastal inway and excitedly snapped a picture of the boat reflection with my Droid and tweeted it.  Was feeling quite smug–being able to send shots of a cool reflection and sharing with my twitter friends at the same time.  Later in the day, when I had cell service once again–was surprised by a tweet…”But, it’s upside down…”  Yep–sure as heck…this is what I posted…

Thankful for Reflections


Let’s try this view…

With my Nikon this time!


 Humor is important!!

There are advantages to routes from one place to another.  We stopped here at 9:00 a.m. when it was overcast and then swung back in the late afternoon…to find blue skies that lit up the boat again!

Beloved Vessel


Off to the side

Imagine the tales to be told!

One thing I do know–I will be back and hope to capture this historic treasure again.

Special shout out to Doug and Roxanne, twitter friends I had the pleasure to meet in person during their CA visit.  An amazing couple with such talent and joy to be with for a day of shooting!  Check out their blog for superb photos–Florida, California, Lensbaby and much more!!  http://dougplusrox.com  Thanks you both for a fabulous day full of wonderful memories!  Look forward to our next visit:)

  2. Laura, wonderful images! Stunning colors and textures. The rust spots, chipping paint and wood grain makes it all so very interesting. Lovely scene around the wrecked ship as well.
