    Garapatta Beach, Aptus 75s (just a few miles south of the upcoming Workshop)

    A couple of shots at low tide.

    Processing was done with Alienware Exposure 2 (split toned), as well as a touch of grain added with TrueGrain plugin (i don't like my images to be 'smooth')

    The beach here can change dramatically over a few months time. 6 months ago, the rocks you see in the foreground were all under sand. This beach is underwater during high tides.. so it's best to find a low tide to visit it.

    Love the processing on these Jim... lovely shots and I'm jealous of those rocks in the ocean. We have some down here in Florida, but nothing to compare.

    Thanks David..and you'll never guess which lens i used for both shots

    It's by far my favorite lens on this camera (Zeiss 110/2 Planar)

    Wowser!

    That first one is like being there instead of being a photo. 3D.

    Now, another haunting whisper in your ear ... (hee.hee,hee) ... Zeiss 250/4FE.

    Hi Jim,
    I like these a lot. Hopefully we will see you in Carmel. Charles and I plan to head a little bit south for Sunday after the workshop so if you have any favorite spots from Carmel down to Big Sur we are all ears.

    i'll be there for a couple of the days (real work gets in the way sometimes). Garapatta Beach is on the way between Carmel and Big Sur. I'll check on the tidal schedule for that day and see how it's going to look

    Doesn't a "Super Moderator" have special powers to block the owners from seeing posts that may be detrimental to the super moderator's own wants and needs???? Both of you need to be more careful before giving out these powers

    You have a point here Terry , may have to knock Jim down a notch on the Bull and Sell so he can't see it.

    Well if you must know... Marc, being the friend he is and knowing I was interested in a MF system, was kind enough to offer the camera to me BEFORE he even listed it on the forums and I passed... So yeah, I have "STUPID LOSER" laser etched into my forehead right now, and self-inflicted shoe-prints all over my butt...

    Terry, good idea - some info from the California State Parks web site:
    Garrapata SP
    The park has two miles of beach front, with coastal hiking and a 50-foot climb to a beautiful view of the Pacific. The park offers diverse coastal vegetation with trails running from ocean beaches into dense redwood groves. The park also features outstanding coastal headlands at Soberanes Point. Sea lions, harbor seals and sea otters frequent the coastal waters and California gray whales pass close by during their yearly migration.

    Location-Directions
    The park is located on Highway 1, 6.7 miles south of Rio Road in Carmel (18 miles north of Big Sur).


    Jim - Super photos!!!

    Dumb *** is too mild. Three or four expletives used as a string of adjectives before the word "idiot" come to mind...
