San Francisco, Egrets, and Pigeon Point Light

It’s almost 11 pm, and I’m stuck at the San Francisco airport.  My plane back to Seattle was schedule to leave here at 8:30 pm, but won’t take off now until midnight.  So, I have nothing to do but process images.  The trip was otherwise great!  I had fun shooting with a few friends, even though the weather wasn’t the best.  Here are a few images from the trip.  I hope you enjoy ‘em.  To see EXIF, please click on the images.

    Nice set of images! I think the two lighthouse images and the black and white golden gate bridge are my favorites of the bunch.

      Orion, thanks for the comment, man! I loved Pigeon Point Light. It is such a beautiful structure. There is even some rust sort of dripping down the sides, which just adds to the overall great “feel” to the place. :D

      Conrad, thanks bud! I can’t tell you how FUN it was to hand out with you and Ant. We’ll all have to plan for a Yosemite trip soon. Of course, y’all will be coming up to my neck of the woods for some PNW beauty! :D

    The images of the egret are so crisp that they almost look like a watercolor painting.

    great shots.

      Meg, thank you for the comment and kind words. You should have seen the egrets in person. They put on a great show. It’s breeding season now and the nesting activity is fantastic! :D

      Rachael, thanks for the comment! I can’t decide which icon I love more, the GGB or the Space Needle! :D

    Grew up in East Bay–enjoyed photos–Egrets remind me of Audubon paintings. Thanks, cb

    Hey Mahesh!!!

    It was great having you come down and spend a few days. It was a pleasure to have you here at the Antman Compound LOL

    Fantastic images. I wonder how that first black and white image would look in color : )

    I appreciate you taking the time to show me a few tricks to landscape photography and post processing. Wildlife photography still rules though : )

    You’ve inspired me to start photographing landscapes my friend. I’m not just a wildlife photographer any more!!

    I look forward to future shoots together!! It can’t come soon enough.

    Glad you got some Egret shots while you were here. You captured some great Egret shots.

    Brenda says “Hi” and you always have a place to stay in Northern Cali

      Ant, thanks a ton for everything, man! You and Brenda were the best hosts ever! Although the weather wasn’t the best, I really enjoyed your company and hospitality. You two are the best! You will always have a place to stay whenever you come to Seattle.
