This is a shot on one of the beaches I love. It's between Santa Cruz and Half Moon Bay, and on this day was foggy in the morning and clear in the afternoon. The fog sat off shore, preventing any really good sunset shots.
This was shot in the BVI in 2007. We sailed all around and I must have gotten a thousand water, boat and beach shots. I liked this one the best because of the windsurfboards in the foreground, the lone beach comber and the water, sailboats and hills in the background.
These two were taken in Yosemite. We pulled over to look at the river, and managed to catch this snake swimming around.
This was on one of our hikes in Yosemite, and I found the dappled quality of the light and the river stones along with the slowly moving water to be calming.
