Marine Layer Over the Valley

Marine Layer Over the Valley I’ve spent the last couple of weekends at our cabin on Figueroa Mountain replacing some windows. This past weekend a condition started to develop that I haven’t seen for a while where the marine layer blew in covering the Santa Ynez valley but the ceiling of the layer remained below the level of the cabin. With the presence of the full moon I was hoping for an opportunity to photograph the moonlit clouds from above. […]

Gorgeous Light on the Mountain

Gorgeous Light on the Mountain Spent last Friday and Saturday with James at the cabin with Lisa joining us Saturday midday. It was windy and kinda cold at times dropping into the 30s at night. Though the flowers are done for the most part, the scenery and lighting were exquisite as always. There are a few photos where I used a nuetral density filter to be able to slow the shutter speed down in order to capture the effect of the […]

This morning at early light I took my camera with the macro lens attached to explore. One aspect of photography I love is that it brings my eye into the detail […]

Road Trip to Anza Borrego

Road Trip to Anza Borrego This post is a few weeks out of sequence but just in case you haven’t browsed to the portfolio of the photos from the trip I’ll do it again here. Anza Borrego was new to Lisa and I. Inspired by friends who had made the trip and news coverage of the super bloom that was taking place, we made the commitment to hit the road. Having heard that the crowds of flower stompers were immense, we […]

Storm on the Mountain

Storm on the Mountain A three day weekend at the cabin on Figueroa Mountain for some much needed rest and reset. And photography! It was an early bloom this year so most of the poppies are fading but the lupine bushes will be on our list to explore later this afternoon now that the sun is out. We arrived yesterday afternoon just ahead of a decent little rain storm. We listened to the rain on the cabin roof while stoking […]
