Point Reyes  
I did a short and hurried trip to Point Reyes this afternoon. The high tide came in early and I missed out on the tide pool shootout. And then I almost ran out of gasoline searching for a place to refuel. Couldn't have gotten worse right? It did. Near the light house, I saw a feral cat by the roadside with a kill. I first thought that the cat had gotten itself a ground squirrel, but it was later identified as a young Long-tailed Weasel! I saw an adult weasel later in the day, but it quickly ran away before I could pull over and take a shot.

I love that first shot, it looks like a painting. And if I had to get a print of any one picture, I'd choose that. :)

Ditto. That wide-angle is cool. The third is pretty good too.

I love that first one. There's something so hauntingly beautiful about abandoned/wrecked boats.

What the ...
The pics aren't just amazing, they're out of this world. Stunning... HDR?

Re: What the ...
Nope. No HDR for any of the images in this set. Just White Balance warming and saturation adjustments.

Re: What the ...
if your boat pics here aren't the perfect examples of when good old fashioned photography is just as good as (if not better than) HDR then i don't know what would be!! they're just crazy beautiful, anyway. amazing!

Wow! Beautiful Pics! The cat certainly looks FERAL!

Do they leave the boats out there to rot in water? I thought there is some kind of recycling or dismantling place for boats too! My! My! So much rotten metal and rust..

That boat is on private property, so the owners probably want to keep it there for some reason I guess.

Aah I C!

What lovely use of the light, and sad to know that the weasel was killed.

First pic looks like a front cover shot for a novel/magazine or something......

I stumbled upon this picture while searching google images. I live maybe 300 yards away from that boat. My neighbor and I played on it everyday as kids. Never have i seen a better picture of it. Absolutely breathtaking. And the lighthouse photo is epic too. Good work. Go to the Olema visitor center and get a trail map. If you don't mind a hike you can reach the top of Mt. Wittenburg from either the visitor center or a short drive to the Sky Camp trailhead for a shorter hike to the peak. When u reach the almost top the trail (marked by a sign) splits left if u come from sky camp or right if u come from olema. Instead of going to the peak make a right if u come from sky and left if u come from olema where the trail T's and walk through the pine trees there. After a very short walk the trees will thin and open to a huge field. From there is an awesome view of Drakes Bay. Chimmney Rock, Drakes Beach, the Drakes Bay Estero, and Limantour Beach all are visible in a breathtaking view of the area. It's wild up there so it should make for an interesting photo shoot!!

Re: wow
Thanks. And Thanks for the tip. I will definitely do the trail someday. :-)
