Dusk

[singlepic id=238 w= h= float=center] Yesterday evening at the coast just north of Scott Creek. We had hoped for a pretty sunset, but were instead greeted by this moody, cloudy sky. I had a lot of fun making long-exposure exposures … Continue reading

Singer

[singlepic id=237 w= h= float=center] A Californian white-crowned sparrow (Zonotrichia leucophrys nuttalli) close to Tomales Point at Point Reyes National Seashore. While we were waiting for some tule elk to move into a more favorable position, this guy was engaging … Continue reading

Groom

[singlepic id=236 w= h= float=center] This is a male coast range fence lizard (Sceloporus occidentalis bocourtii), I believe. He was defending his territory by showing off his bright blue throat patch while doing fast push-ups, after which came a display … Continue reading

Rising

[singlepic id=235 w= h= float=center] I had seen these wind-power generators a couple of months ago on my way to Yosemite National Park. And yesterday was a good day to revisit them. I had checked the weather report and was … Continue reading

Fountain

[singlepic id=233 w= h= float=center] This one was inspired by the great Henri. I liked how the girl had just opened her hair and how it flowed over her shoulders, much like the water coming out of the pipes of … Continue reading

Blasted

[singlepic id=227 w= h= float=center] Another shot from Big Sur. When I took this shot we were sheltering behind a rock from the wind and sand that blasted everything around us. This rock looked as if it got blasted quite … Continue reading

Stellar’s Jay

[singlepic id=225 w= h= float=center] A Stellar’s Jay (Cyanocitta steller), who adamantly demanded to get some of our peanuts. We met this guy at Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park where these jays, but also crows and what sounded like pheasants … Continue reading
