I’ve not been on the blog schedule lately because I’ve been working on a new cool combination website/blog and setting up my workshops program so it will be easy to register and pay online – more than it is currently. I was also preparing to head on this road trip with Jed. We left town yesterday for Oregon Coast but only made it to northern California by the time we got out of town. This was a picture of giant redwoods I made when we stopped to let the dog run around near Leggett, CA. I liked how the two giants in the foreground framed the ones behind them. I’ve done ‘straight’ images of these beautiful trees in fog, in spring, and so this time I had decided to add some motion to the picture yet still retain texture of their unique bark.
We’re taking it slow and easy on this trip, making pictures where we see them, and doing fun stuff like buying blackberry popsicles! Even our dog Mocha likes them – but only because we knew she already liked to eat blackberries. Bought some organic tomatoes and basil to prepare a yummy dinner tonight, but the cold blowing fog sent us into a restaurant instead! We’re in Coos Bay and hoping the weather will be good for us to photograph the beach and sea stacks in this general area, including Bandon. It was really foggy through Gold Beach area so we pushed onward. Tomorrow, we get busy planning out where we want to be for tomorrow’s sunset light!
Well, you know this type of image has been done before. Still, this one is really great. The strength of the trees really comes through. Great work.
Yes, it has – I’ve been doing this sort of thing for about 10 years, in fact! But I still like to work at them and every once in a while you get one that works right – for what you personally envision. Thanks, Bob.
The Loose Caboose! I love the name – and thanks, I will try it – I think we’re coming home the same way although we haven’t talked about it all just yet. Always love to know about knew places to eat along the way. Thanks, Chris.
If you come back down 101 and manage to hit Willits for lunch try the Loose Caboose for awesome sandwiches. It is in downtown behind Fiesta Mexicana on the main street (101). The address is 10 Wood stret. Fiesta Mexicana isn’t half bad either.
have a fun trip and God bless,
Looking good Brenda! Have a great trip!
Will do, John!
This is beautiful, nicely composed and I love the colours.
Thank you Graham – I love how the greens and the different hues of browns blended here, too.
