3:45 am is really very early. Much too early. But as always, it’s worth it anyway. There is an elephant seal rookery near San Simeon, CA, a bit up the coast from me that gets thousands upon thousands of calving females, babies being born, fighting males, etc. A big group of photographers in the area got together for some shooting, with excellent results. Here’s a few of the best.

Another blog-inspired post, I’ve taken a look back through the photos I’ve taken in the last year.

Elkana is clearly impressed with Pearl the Macbook.

Onto real photography and favorite thing #3 – vineyards! Getting one’s butt out of bed at the buttcrack of dawn occasionally proves fruitful. Not often enough for me to not hit the snooze button the requisite five or six times anyway, of course. But, I was up anyway, had some liquid wakey-wakey in the form of espresso, and had the camera with me. So here are a few from that shoot.

And then a few shots from a couple of weeks ago that I hadn’t gotten around to working on. Pismo Beach, CA pier.

So many surfers, so little time – the high temps brought out legions of them…

This one would have been pretty top notch if I hadn’t cut off his feet. I liked it anyway so there it is…
