I have been home from California for a week now and the wonderful time spent photographing there has finally been fully absorbed. I am very fortunate to have such generous friends in Pacific Grove who allowed me to watch their home while they were in Hawaii. I am still wading through tons of images taken over the two and a half weeks spent there but I have uploaded a gallery today with some of the best images so far. I hope everyone enjoys them. I am especially proud of my "Lone Cypress" image along with a number of other landscapes. The rocky coastline lends itself well to both color and B&W images. I am sure I will have a small lust of spots that I would like to have a second shot at in the future. In the meantime I am back to gray skies and impending snow storms so a completely different kind of though process will be in order over the next few months. Enjoy and Happy Holidays!
