Photo One : Fairly early morning on Treasure Island onlooking what would be Oakland if it weren't fogged out. This photo was taken while the old Bay Bridge was still being deconstructed, as you can see just beyond the new structure above the cranes.
Photo Two : Cloudy sunset in the Bay Area, decided to get the camera out and take some early evening shoots. Standing on Embarcadero Street in San Fransisco, CA looking out at the Bay Bridge toward Treasure Island.
Photo Three : Same location as photo two. San Fransisco Fire Department building and boat.
When I first moved out to the Bay Area I wanted to photo the bridges both in the sunrise and sunset. Golden Gate sunrise photos were the first on the list. Once I kind of knew the lay of the land, enough to get myself to a spot where I could very nicely capture the bridge. I wanted to get creative with the images, I wanted images you don't normally see of the bridges. My journey began... I woke up at 5am to drive from Oakland to The City (San Fransisco) to photo the Golden Gate Bridge. Unfortunatly, when I arrived it was a typical San Fransisco fogged out morning. Patiently I waited for the view to get clear enough to photo. These are some of the photos I ended up with from that early, brisk morning.
Stumbled upon this alley way after grabbing food at the favorite spot. Vivid color contrast makes this walk super interesting. The Mission District, San Fransisco, CA.
Joshua Tree National Park
What a beautiful place! The joining of the Mojave to the Colorado creates the perfect environment for this Doctor Seuss looking tree. Unique, to say the least.
From flowers to sunsets to waterfalls, Bali, Indonesia treated well! A three week adventure throughout Bali led to so many amazing features.
17 Mile Drive
If you have some extra money, this drive is nice. Ten, twenty-five to be exact. Its gorgeous, Pebble Beach is here. Made it to stop #8, China Rock, never made it to the 'rock', wandered amongst the trees for too long. Also, stopped at some of the other attractions. Majority of time spent was the hour leading to sunset in the tide pools.
Yosemite, Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Park - Winter
A January winter. Yosemite, Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Forests. The first time I've been to any of these parks... it was cold & wet, but the rushing waterfalls flowing through the sculpted rocks was definitly a site to see. And the trees! Big and beautiful.
Yosemite, Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Park - Summer
Hot July camping in Wawoma.
Yosemite, Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Park - Fall
Yosemite in the fall... one word, spectacular.
Sea Cliff State Beach, Aptos, CA
Winter time, watching the huge waves beat the already partially sunken cement boat. Some of the biggest waves I've seen in this area.
Big Sur... Morning, noon or night you'll be amazed by the beauty whether you're hiking thru or driving by.
Photo One & Two : taken right off the 1 during a gorgeous sunset.
Photo Three : waterfall hiking in Pfeiffer State Park.
Last Four Photos : Sunrise, early morning at the same location as the first two photos. Right off the 1 not far form Pfeiffer State Park in Big Sur.
Aptos Village Park
Let the rain subside and go for a walk thru the park. I love to go the The Forest of Nisene Marks, but it was overfilled with people this day. The local park did not disappoint, even though it was tiny, nobody was there.
Forest of Nisene Marks
This beautiful forest conveniently rests just minutes from my house.
Santa Cruz Mountains
Camping on the mountain ridge made for beautiful sunrise through to the starry night.
Camping during the summer, found this creek to cool off in. Near French Gulch, CA, Shasta Lake area.
Lake Tahoe Winter
Trekking through five feet of snow without the correct footwear was a task.
Grand Canyon National Park
The Grand Canyon! I didn't get to spend as much time as I would've liked. Definitely will be coming back.
Paros, Antiparos & Despotiko
The brief version of my study abroad trip to Greece due to breaking my camera part way through.
Photo One : Statue made by a local man. His house was a museum of tiny replica pieces he made of things around Greece.
Photo Two : Fishing boat docked off the shore of Antiparos looking toward the island Paros.
Photo Three : The day on Anitparos consisted of walking through the gorgeous alley ways painted white with vibrently coloful doors.
Photo Four : A short boat ride away from Paros is a beautiful uninhabited island, Despotiko. Well, partially uninhabited... Goats, live there.
Here are some of my random photos, mostly of things or products.
