Looking out at the Central Coast of California from a hillside near Guadalupe, CA
This past weekend I was in Northern California staying near the San Joaquin River. I don’t often use HDR in my photography but in this case the clouds were moving so fast with changing light it was too temping to pass up. Taken from a boat dock shooting into the water.
The photo speaks for itself.
In the Loire Valley we saw several fields of sunflowers as we were driving around. After ignoring them for a couple days we had a stormy afternoon with heavy rain that provided a background to highlight them well enough.
On our last day in Tahoe I walked down to the lake shore to get a sunset and saw this boathouse. There was some controlled burning in the area which gave part of the sky and distant clouds the orange hue.
I was taking a photo walk yesterday afternoon at Avila Beach, California and was reminded of a recent post by Stephen Hipperson titled Contre-jour. This capture was about 3:00PM so as the sun sets further I imagine the look will change. So something for next time. Thanks Stephen for the inspiration.
The morning started with a few clouds and as the day went on they increased until the sky turned dark and rain fell. Occasionally the sun would peek out and provide some interesting light.
