After enjoying (?) some 30 miles each on the road race bike in sunny but truly chilly conditions yesterday and today it's even more a pleasure to recall sunny California only a few weeks ago:
Even when revisiting Yosemite NP repeatedly, it's a great adventure again and again (not only Ansel Adams realized that ) but, California (that's for sure) is not only worth visiting NPs. To name at first only one more claim to fame, the seaside comes to mind here, with ever up to date as well as historic attractions - chapter 5

a different class. The composition in the first, the serenity of the lone
fisherman in the second really rhymes with me.
The third image in the series ( not quoted ) gives me a film like old time
Here's a couple.
Nikon D700 Sigma 24-70 2.8.
6 images stitched together.
D3, 300VR 2.8
Rayyan Lloyd, Appreciated!
Matto/Hermann/Curtis/Steve: Great stuff, all!
Landscapelover: Beautiful image with that über-lens! You've really captured their movement in concert. Well timed, focused, and composed.
PS: Very busy times for me right now (fortunately ), so the owing chapters showing pictures of California (Deserts/Historic Route 66), Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado will possibly follow later on.
