Wrapping up the year

Primarily due to laziness, but also some practical limitations in where it’s easy to edit and publish photos, I haven’t been publishing much this year. Secondly, and more importantly, I haven’t been shooting much either. I’m going to try to change that in the new year, and I’ve set a goal to participate in one of the many 52 weeks Photo projects that are out there. I find that, like with anything in my life, I can accomplish goals when I have them, but activities without goals languish. Thusly, a goal for next year. So, ending the new year with a shot from Hanalei Bay in Kauai, Hawaii. I’d very much like to visit this spot again someday.

Back to Mono Lake

We’re taking an anniversary trip in October to the Eastern Sierras. Excited to head back to Mono Lake, June Lake, etc, at a really great time of the year.

Lucky Day

I haven’t gotten out to shoot much lately, but Friday I got an excellent opportunity to go out for a fantastic sunset.

Road to Sydney

A quick stop on my hike across Sydney towards Mrs. Macquarie’s Chair a few months ago turned out to be the best image of the trip.

Breaking Through

Beautiful evening at Rodeo Beach a few months ago. Mostly overcast, the sun just barely broke through the clouds.

Oh the Sunsets

More clearing out of my Hawaii collection. I’m so looking forward to the sunsets next week.

Bamboo Forest

I’m heading back to Hawaii in a couple of weeks, so I really need to clear out my backlog of Hawaii photos from last year. We’re not going to Maui again this year, which is a shame because this is a beautiful bamboo forest. I’m sure Kauai will hold destinations just as magical.

Creeping Karl

Summer fog is a different beast. It rarely allows you to stay and catch a sunset, at least on the west side of the bay. It’s also a fickle beast, as Larry and I watched the fog rolling in from Mt. Tam, we considered heading down to Rodeo Beach, thinking it might be a rare clear summer evening, but as we were thinking about it the fog suddenly shifted from receding to taking over most of Marin County. Got a lucky moon rise at sunset this evening, and I also got to meet a whole new set of IGers, which was a treat. What a great day to go out and shoot!

I’m going back to the Oakland Zoo tomorrow with friends and I’ll probably get a few more snaps for my B&W Tiger series.
