Best Viewed On Black or in my Fluidr photostream.

Not far from beautiful Santa Cruz on the Pacific Coast resides a group of redwoods known as Big Basin Redwoods State Park. As you drive up from the beaches in to the mountains the forest becomes more dense and lush and even in winter the park is a deep emerald green. Arriving just in time for the sunlight to filter down through the forest canopy and illuminate Sempervirens Falls. A small but beautiful waterfall it is just one of many waterfalls in the park this is perhaps the easiest to find and can be seen from the road. It flows best in the winter months but can be seen flowing at a lower rate though most of spring and even in to summer. A thick moss coats most of the redwoods in the area and the forest floor is lush with ferns. To see the parks other, larger falls, will require a bit of hiking.

Hot off the camera, just got back home tonight with this image of the Golden
Gate Bridge. The fog had burned off for the day then began rolling in just
as we pulled up to take pictures. For this shot, the fog just happened to
align just right so to create a Torche Lamp effect. The deep blue and red
from the long exposure really worked well together. I even caught the two
park rangers out at Ft. Point sitting in their cars as they closed down the
park. I set the camera for a full 30 second exposure to smooth out the
water.

No matter how many times I photograph the bridge, I always seem to get a new
an interesting effect. The long exposure here really shows off how the
bridge lights reflect off the fog.

Some earlier sunset shots to follow so stay tuned.

Enjoy

In the wild, this animal would appear nearly invisible in the ocean. But
at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, artificial lighting makes the detail and
beauty of the Jellyfish apparent. The tiny stinging threads pulsate with
the movements of the main body hanging down many lengths the body of the
jellyfish. Its foot sparkles like stars in space in the water behind the
jellyfish. I can and have spent hours in the jellyfish exhibit just
watching these beautiful creatures. Very hard to film due to the low
lighting I was very lucky this guy was swimming very slowly across the
window and I was able to position the camera to captures the detail. They
look so incredible you just want to reach out and touch them but the signs
warn you of dangers of doing so. I can't think of a creature on the land
or under the sea that comes in such wonderful shapes and colors. More
jellyfish will be forth coming.

If you stick with a subject long enough, you will eventually get lucky.
I've known for some time that the local park was often visited by blue, gray
and snowy white egrets but I've had a hard time getting close to these shy
birds. I had just about given up for the day but decided to walk over to
the shaded area of the lake. There was this snowy white egret standing
there and more approachable than even the mallards. This one seemed to
enjoy the camera and posed right in front of the reflections of the sunset
on the golden grassy hills and a deep blue sky. Sometimes you just get
lucky.
