One more from Point Reyes that I had lying around. Pretty sure this is the last one from Point Reyes I’ll ever be posting. Unless I, know you, go back there and take more pictures.

This was taken at Point Reyes National Seashore a few years ago. I had it lying around.

August 9, 2013 – Yosemite Falls

Yosemite Falls Yosemite Falls

New PC is still on its way, so no Telluride photo again today.

I think this is Yosemite Falls. I mean, it’s absolutely something from Yosemite National Park. Honestly, I don’t remember which waterfall is which, and this is from almost 3 years ago, so the details from the trip have long ago started to become fuzzy. We were there in early November. I like that the fall colors there peak around November, because that’s later than most other places I might find myself in the fall. (Which means that, if the budget/time allows, I could theoretically go there after my own fall ends, and get a second go. Not that I generally have budget/time to do that. Just saying, “if”… uh huh.)

Anyway, maybe next week I’ll be back to Colorado photos.

I apologize, I don’t have a Telluride-area photo queued up for today. I went ahead and upgraded my PC (so it will run Lightroom – the 8 year old or whatever beast I was using before just wasn’t cutting it), but it’s in the middle of being shipped. Fortunately I’ve got a ton of stuff in the backlog that I never got around to posting yet.

This was taken at Point Reyes National Seashore, which is a little bit northwest of San Francisco.

July 27, 2011 – Point Reyes National Seashore

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.
