• Keeping an Eye on the Harem

    Pier 39 sea lions taking life easy.

  • Keep Clear?

    Or not. We didn't take the boat trip out to the Rock this time around, but mountain biking over the GG bridge was fun.

  • USS Pampanito

    Detail from the hull. Not quite as streamlined as a modern sub. See wikipedia


  • Rope and Rivets

    Detail from the Liberty ship SS Jeremiah o' Brien See wikipedia

  • San Francisco Icon I

    Classic view from Fort Point with some fog arriving.

  • San Francisco Icon II

    Classic view from Fort Point.


  • Intersection

    Intersecting planes of the Golden Gate bridge, seen from Fort Point.

  • Much Photographed Tree and Rock

    This Jeffrey pine tree and glacial erratic seem to feature in a lot of photos taken from Olmsted point. Yosemite NP.

  • Olmsted View I

    Another angle on the oft-photgraphed Olmsted pine.


  • Yosemite Granite

    Typical Yosemite scenery a few minutes walk from Olmsted point viewing area. Quite different to anything I ever seen before.

  • Tunnel View

    Another famous Yosemite view that I've waited for a long time to get to see for myself. Not really the best light and no waterfall, but can't really not have a go - and on the way back there were uniform grey rain clouds. Wawona Tunnel View, Yosemite NP

  • No Longer Standing

    Rather sad to see what was no doubt a magnificent tree now become a charred and rather large log. Mariposa Grove, Yosemite NP


  • Charred

    Interesting textures on a felled tree presumably killed by fire. Mariposa Grove, Yosemite NP.

  • Twiggy

    An almost insectiverous look to this tree. Mariposa Grove, Yosemite NP

  • Twigs and Moss

    A bit busy, but I liked the colours and textures. Mariposa Grove, Yosemite NP.


  • Geometrical Trees

    Tree forms of the imagination. The 'interesting' sky was actually a warning of an approaching storm. Mariposa Grove, Yosemite NP.

  • A Familiar Profile

    A familiar view even though this trip was the first time I had set eyes on Half Dome. Seen here early in the morning while descending the Panorama trail from Glacier Point. Yosemite NP

  • An Unfamiliar Profile

    Half Dome looking a little different from this angle on the Panorama Trail. Yosemite NP.
