Highway 1 near Big Sur, Bixby Bridge, Carmel is closed due to landslide

Highway 1 near the Bixby Bridge and Big Sur is closed in both directions after a 40 foot section of road collapsed. So much for my quick trip down to Big Sur! There are some long detours and fixes are coming. Caltrans says it should take at least a month to fix it. More info here.

Spent the Night at the Monterey Bay Aquarium!

I got to spend the night in the Monterey Bay Aquarium with my daughter this weekend! 100 other Dads/Daughters with the YMCA adventure guides this past weekend! Great time sleeping next to the kelp forest and having the place to ourselves! Spent the next day in Monterey, Pacific Grove and Asilomar beach! ahh!

I captured this image of ...the purple-striped jellyfish with the Nikon D3S from @borrowlenses This is captured at ISO 6400, f/4.5 and 1/160. Slight noise reduction applied in Adobe Lightroom 3.

You can see the full-size image of the Purple-striped Jellyfish here!

Santa Cruz Harbor Before the Tsunami hitting California

Prayers and condolences go out to the folks in Japan following the earthquake and Tsunami. It is amazing to see even the possible affects of something like this thousands of miles away! I think it is eerie timing on this, as I just printed this image of the Santa Cruz Harbor and Yacht Club for a collector yesterday. The Santa Cruz Harbor and Yacht Club is one of the few places that WAS impacted by the Tsunami on the California coastline capsizing 20 or more boats and caused millions of dollars in damage. Scary stuff!

Camera Rentals and Lens Rentals from BorrowLenses

I just put in an order to rent the Nikon D3S and the Nikon 14-24mm for an upcoming weekend from BorrowLenses! If you haven't tried renting cameras and lenses before, I highly recommend renting gear! I use BorrowLenses for all my rentals! Renting camera gear is a great way to try out a lens or body before you make a purchase. It also works great for special trips like summer vacations, weddings, parties, spring break or no occasion at all! If you do rent something from BorrowLenses, please use the link above as I do get credit!
