A Few Landscapes From My Travels #3 - Germany, Point Lobos and Cannery Row Monterey
Yellow Fields Under Cloud Cover in Germany near the Roman Ruins (Luxembourg maybe - we were zig-zagging along the border)... Actually, I was standing ON the ruins while
shooting this scene, and the view won my interest. I guess I'll just have to go back again to shoot the ruins
Pelicans Over Cove at Point Lobos California - There were endless formations of pelicans at Point Lobos near Carmel California. One after the other they zipped by, all seeming
to have important places to go. I don't know if the storm was churning up food for them or what. A beautiful display. I found it more then a little bit ironic that I was shooting
formations of pelicans most of the day while carrying my camera gear around in pelican cases. Totally unplanned but that's the way it worked out... (Someone just asked me for
my link to pelican cases... I'm not selling anything guys, this is all just FYI)
Cannery Row Marina in Monterey in Midnight Fog - The marina in Monterey depicted in the photo is an integral part of the waterfront described by Steinbeck in Cannery Row.
I spent many nights in this type of drizzly fog during the two years I spent in Monterey, one of the more beautiful places I've lived. This beautiful scene appeared when the weather
cooled and the fog rolled in over the sailboats in the marina. Nature put on a lovely show for me that night.
Comments welcome and appreciated!
