There was no snow upon arrival at South Lake Tahoe.  24 hours later there was a foot of new powder.  That’s life in the mountains.  What a wonderful time to be there in all its winter glory.  After coming back down from the Heavenly ski slopes I had a chance to wander around a bit.

Alone on the boat.  I can only imagine the freedom and power coming from being alone on the boat, just me and the elements.  Though the sailor here is quite close to the civilized shore, still he gets to work with the wind and water and the numerous feelings that come with mastering the craft.  In San Francisco Bay it’s easy to find many boats in close proximity.  Here, he’s not only alone on the boat, he’s alone on his slice of the bay.

Speaking of high in the mountains, Bodie, or what remains of it, is quite high.  Over 8000 feet high.  I love old things, and old buildings are right at the top of the list.  I can imagine people bustling into these buildings to gather supplies for the cold winter; or coming in after the snows melt to get the spring planting needs that would provide much food for the next winter.  But what about the truck?  Guess that came in a few years later.

I’d never been down to St. Augustine so as long as I was in Savannah and so close, I went.  As always, it was fun exploring this part of the world.  Luckily for me it was a bit stormy while there.  The storm seemed to hang just west of the city but I saw this rain squall just as I was checking out the bridge of lions that spans the bay.

Weather is almost a factor in Bellingham.  If you’re a sun freak it’s probably not for you.  Clouds, whether or not it’s raining, are always in the equation.  I really didn’t like that part of growing up there.  I had a hunger for sun and the light.  Of course, now that I have lived other places and traveled quite a bit and even now live in sunny California, I appreciate the beauty of the place and its aggravating climate.  Now I enjoy rediscovering the beautiful spots of NW Washington.

Winter is so awesome for going to the coast.  And finally it’s winter!  Wet, stormy, dark.  Often, we get a break in the weather and those are the best times for photography.  I don’t know what’s happening in your part of the world, but here in California it’s finally winter.  Let us rejoice! stormy-ocean-sunset-5-1

Dramatic weather is my favorite subject to photograph.  Whether just part of the larger scene or as the featured subject all together, I love weather.  Sail boats with their sails down on calm seas?  Probably not much there.  But with stormy clouds and a bit of color, now there’s something.  This is on Bellingham Bay in NW Washington state.

Being able to stay right above the Pacific Ocean sure does wonders for capturing the constantly changing moods of the coastline.  It was winter, my favorite time for coastal photography, and we rented a perfect little secluded cabin, nestled directly above the ocean on its high-bank perch.  What a great place to watch the waves and weather roll in.

I was in Monterey.  It was a beautiful, relatively warm late winter day.  Lots of people, happily wandering around, exploring the best of what the area has to offer; an easy stroll along the Pacific, plenty of shops and restaurants, the aquarium.  When I had my fill of town, I drove west, up the road a couple of miles and bam!  A different world.  I wasn’t sure if the weather had just turned or I was just far enough out of town to make a difference.  No matter, the fog and mist were on me.  The ocean breeze was stiff.  It was suddenly cold.  I put my jacket on.  I took a few photos, but the mist was getting to my lens.  I called it a day.
