Point Arena and the North coast

Just recently got back from a three day trip to Point Arena and the Mendocino coast. We had a little bit of everything, rain, fog wind and sunshine. We stayed at the Point Arena Lighthouse Point Arena Lodge We shot @ bowling ball beach during sunset with a minus tide. Under idea conditions you can achieve stunning results. We shot Point Cabrillo Lightstation morning, late after noon and dusk. One day we had to sit in the car for and hour or so before the rain stopped. Finally the skies cleared and the sun came out an hour and a half before sunset. We shot the Point Arena lighthouse. While we were staying at the lighthouse lodge we had access to shoot anytime.

Bowling Ball Beach. The tide was still going out in this shot,not quite @ minis yet.You still can get very good results with some water surrounding the rocks.

This shot was taken with the setting sun and a minus tide!

Behind the scene shot of Photographers Bill Taylor, & Don Taylor amp; Sherman setting up for the shot.

Point Cabrillo Lightstation. Minutes earlier we were sitting in the car waiting for the rain to stop. Photography reminds me of fishing, you have to be patience.

This is a morning shot,We had to wait for the fog to clear before getting this shot.

Elk Grove Harvest Festival 2009

This was my second year participating in the Elk Grove Harvest Festival. I had my photography on display for promotion and also to sell. I really enjoy this festival, its a fun event . Lots of good food, music and family fun. I enjoy meeting the people that visited my booth. I want to thank my friend Zeb Woods for driving up all the way from the bay area to purchase three of my photos.

This panorama of the famous San Francisco Victorians created a lot of conversation, most of the younger generation associated it with the television show full house. Others talked about visits at Alamo Square Park. One couple reminisced about living in the neighborhood.
