Dream Cape
Description
I shot this one at Oregon's Cape Kiwanda. I kind of liked this unusual comp but wasn't thrilled with a normal exposure so I shot this one minute exposure with the 9-stop NDX400.

Sea of Misfortune
Description
This is a shot from Shark Fin Cove in Davenport, CA from last Christmas 2010. I went back here in 2011 to reshoot this comp when tragedy struck. The tide was higher than it is in this shot and the surf was raging. I had set up my tripod about 8-10 feet closer to the arch from this spot when a huge surge up to my waist pushed me up the beach and the back flow pulled my tripod with my Canon 5D MkII attached out into the ocean. I could see the three tripod legs bobbing in the crashing waves as it kept getting pulled further away. There was really nothing I could do. I left and came back hours later at low tide hoping to salvage some remains but nothing was there - it was gone. The worst part is I had cancelled my insurance months earlier and hadn't gotten around to re-insuring my gear. Pretty stupid. So all in all I lost the Canon 5d MkII body, Canon 17-40 f4 lens, Gitzo 1325 tripod, Bogen 3047 head, and all of that day's images.

View From the Ritz I
Description
I twilight shot at Miramontes Point, Half Moon Bay, CA. That's the new Ritz-Carlton in the distance - $450 a night (ocean view), $2900 a night for a presidential suite. I was reluctant to shoot any shots with this hotel in the frame but I gotta say it does blend well with the landscape. Others will disagree.

Last Light at Crystal Cove
Description
Taken Apr 30th 2008 at the far north end of Crystal Cove State Park, CA. I kind of like this one because it's a retake from a previous (failed) visit. I got the foreground rocks the way I wanted and the weather was cooperative. I did not want a clear blue sky and was pleased with these conditions.

Ocean Pier at Dusk

Taken (06/23/01) at Hearst State Beach in San Simeon CA, down highway 1 from Hearst Castle well after sunset. The beach was closed for repairs but I ignored the signs and shot there anyway. I had taken shots of this pier before and wanted to reshoot it. Shortly after I took this I was chased off by the police, but at least I got the shots I wanted.
