NorCal – Rocks and Water

On a rare break from work, I escaped to Northern California for a quick vacation. The primary mission was to relax, of course, but I was also motivated to practice landscape photography. Despite some fairly in-depth research and planning, I was quickly humbled by Mother Nature. Landscape photography is definitely not easy, and uncooperative weather doesn’t help for sure. So I missed a bunch of shots I had envisioned, but this was a great learning experience.

Here’s a few photos. Rocks and water were the theme of this trip, evidently. Hope all is well! Work hard, stay positive, be brave.

Golden Gate Bridge Rodeo Beach Classic Rodeo Beach view of Golden Gate Bridge. Shortly after this and for the entire next day, fog completely swallowed the bridge

Yosemite Valley View creek Bridalveil Fall, Yosemite. No mere mist here; stand here for 30 seconds and you’ll be soaked head to toe. My camera was drenched but survived
