Sutro Baths and Mouth of the Golden Gate San Francisco

"Sutro Baths and Mouth of the Golden Gate" We spent the weekend in San Francisco last weekend. Great brunch at the Cliff House just watching the clouds go by. Point Bonita lighthouse and the Marin headlands/Mt Tam off in the background. This is a 3 shot panorama image. You can see the full resolution image here:

Which Camera?! Nikon or Cannon?

I had to share this for some Friday night humor! Ymmv (your mileage may vary!) Kudos to folks for finding this one!! I rent camera bodies and lenses from them as often as possible! Let me know what you think!

Horsetail Falls Across the Merced at Sunset

Since this is the week when the sun is at the right angle to potentially illuminate Horsetail Falls like it is lit up with lava, I thought I would post this. This is "Horsetail Falls Across the Merced River" This is another vantage point for capturing Horsetail Falls off of El Captian from across the Merced River. Most folks use a long lens, but I like this setting. There are NOT many places to capture from this locale as it is packed with photographers and there aren't as many unobstructed spots along the bank of the river. I like this tranquil setting with the snow on the banks and the lush green trees off in the distant. The one red tree stands out on the bank. The bonus is the glow from Horsetail Falls off in the background! Ahh....just another fine day in Yosemite National Park! You can see more images of Horsetail Falls, including my award-winning image "Nature's Firefalls" over here on my website.
