California Coastal

Hello All,
Been away for a while (stupid job), but recently went camping with my wife, first time together in a tent since 2006. These are all with the E-1 and 14-54 mk1, and a CPL.

A harbor seal, I think, or else a young elephant seal. I almost walked right into him/her, until s/he snorted and I backed off.

Dune grass...

Lighthouse at Pt. Arena on the Mendocino coast (sorry I didn't straighten it mo' bettah)...

Centuries worth of logs buried in the dunes...

Bull kelp...

A pretty dune flower...

The mouth of the Garcia River, where we've been swamped in years past...

Color, not too tinkered with, other than CPL

And more color...

Thanks for taking a peek. Hope you enjoy!

Re: California Coastal

Nice set.

Looks like a very interesting coastline. Super colour in the sea.

I've worked hard to be this grumpy. It hasn't been easy at times but it's worth it.

Re: California Coastal

I did enjoy the set Stewart, could almost smell the sea air!
I love the lighthouse shot - lovely soft colours.

Re: California Coastal

Lovely coastline nicely captured. Looks pretty quiet, not what I'd have expected of California but nice to see.
