Point Reyes National Seashore

Wednesday, July 27, 2011

Today’s picture is the 400th post to the Picture of the Day!! Congratulate me, dangit!

Right, good, now that I’ve got that out there… Here’s another shot from Point Reyes National Seashore, just north of San Francisco. I mentioned I had several photos from my recent visit that turned out pretty well, so here’s one of them. The area that’s called the “National Seashore” is kind of a spit of land that’s mostly separated from the main coastline and juts out a bit into the ocean. It mostly consists of small rolling hills covered with grass, and some low marshy/swampy tidelands. I had a lot of fun taking a bunch of shots of the late afternoon sun playing around on the grass, especially when the odd cloud would pass by, which did some cool stuff with textures of lighting. Using a polarizer was a must, as it cut through a lot of the haze and made for some nice cobalt-blue skies. The only downside was that it was right about when I took this picture that I remembered that I’ve got a fairly strong allergy to grass, and that’s why I had been sneezing and blowing my nose and generally feeling pretty miserable the whole day. But, it’s all worth it when you get a decent shot or two.

Okay, see you tomorrow for post number 401!

Notes: Canon EOS Rebel T1i, Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 lens. 1/250s, f/10.0, ISO 400. Focal length: 21mm.

    Congratulations on #400! There really is no image that quite captures the open feeling of freedom like a rolling field of grass, in my opinion.
