I thought I would share a handful of images here with all of you.
|(Canon 5D Mark III, 24-105mm lens at 105mm, ISO 200, f/7.1, 1/1600 sec)|
Once the others were on the beach and happily doing their searching for treasure, I walked along a path to see what I could find. Out in the distance, I saw a grouping of Harbor Seals. Luckily, before starting this walk, I had switched to the Canon 28-300mm lens. I zoomed all the way to 300mm and got this shot.
There were some good size waves coming in, so I waited for a good swell and shot this photo. I purposely framed the shot to have the rock off center and the wave centered.
I got close to this grouping of seals and framed this shot to include them and the incoming waves. I wanted to hike in even closer, but noticed that the seals were starting to get spooked by me, and I backed off. I really did not want to interrupt them in their environment.
I saw this one seagull hanging out. Normally I would not photograph this, but I liked the way that the white bird was framed by all the dark rocks.
And then it was back to the harbor seals who were still sunning themselves in the last couple hours of the day.
I walked back to the beach where my family was hanging out. I saw this formation in the rock and loved the tree shaped pattern, filled with the multicolored rock. Just another photographic day on the coast of Northern California. :)
Tomorrow we are going to spend some time in San Francisco with the family, and of course, I will have the camera in hand for any photo opportunities. Not a bad way to end 2016, with the whole family together once again.
