I know it’s odd, but the San Francisco Yacht Club is not even in San Francisco.  It’s actually across the bay in tiny Belvedere.  I was strolling by one evening as the sun was setting and although there was no light on the boats of the marina I noticed a perfect frame of color and light set against the still approaching darkness that was enveloping the harbor.  It’s the opposite of what I usually look for.  Maybe that’s what drew me in.

It was quite cold on this morning.  But, towards the end of October at over 7000 feet and just past dawn, I couldn’t expect anything different.  What an exciting time to be awake and out in nature.  I saw one other person at the lake and, of course, he too was out capturing images of the rising sun on the mountain peaks above the amazingly calm waters of the lake.  It’s a great time to be in the mountains.

The Russian River meanders through Sonoma county in California, meeting the Pacific Ocean at Jenner.  Before it gets there it travels through a lot of wine country.  Many a vineyard pulls water out of its flow to irrigate their vines.  In fact, the Russian River appellation is a well known region of luscious California wines.  On this day I was out playing with my camera, visiting some of the many great wineries and enjoying the crispness of the day.

Night is my favorite time to wander around a strange town and create artful images.  I don’t always take the time to do it, or I get too lazy if I’ve been out all day, but it usually gives me results I like.  On this dark night I had driven from Palm Springs to the Phoenix area and had walked around the area for many miles already.  But, I chose to keep plodding on.  I made it over to Tempe to see what I could see and after I got settled in for the night I chose to take off again.  This foot bridge over Tempe Town Lake caught my eye.

I arose early to catch the early morning light.  Meandering down by the river, or lake, I fought my way down to an open spot right next to the water, set up the tripod and fired away.  Generally I don’t like getting up so early, but I sure do like the soft morning light.  And being February, the light was especially soft.

I love a good swamp.  Maybe because I didn’t grow up with them.  I just love the growth in them; creepy, slimy, often stagnant, algae invested still water.  And the trees, so often covered with Spanish moss, crawling and extending its life down, down, down, seemingly reaching out toward the water.  Magnolia Plantation here, is quite close to Charleston, South Carolina and a fun place to hike around and explore, if you like a good swamp.

Even though the government has been temporarily shut down, you can’t regulate beauty or the glory of the natural world.  Our governmental reps. bicker and what gets cut out?  Our national parks.  As if we need government to dictate where we can walk or hike.  Guess we better stay home and write our representative’s.  On second thought, there’s too much beauty in the world.  I think I’ll go hiking! yosemite-valley-reflection-1

It was an early Sunday morning and for some reason most people in the park seemed content to not be wandering about.  Maybe they were breaking down their camp or sipping morning coffee or just getting ready to head back to city life.  Whatever the case, it seemed as if all of Yosemite was mine and a few other photographer types enjoying the immense beauty of this spectacular valley.  This particular year the mountains were overflowing with snow-pack and the runoff into rivers and waterfalls was the highest in quite some time.  There are but few words to describe this place called Yosemite.  With the wildly flowing rivers and falls, awesome is one of them.

This is the oldest public Japanese tea garden in the US and is located inside Golden Gate Park in San Francisco.  I’m not much of a tea drinker, but I love gardens.  I find it quite soothing in here, just being able to wander slowly, taking in the beauty.  There is an incredible fullness here and it’s all so meticulously organized, every tree and shrub perfectly in its place.
