Sempervirens Falls

California has seen a lot of rain this year, so much that we are out of a drought! I celebrated by checking out Sempervirens Falls for the first time. Big Basin Redwoods State Park never disappoints, and this waterfall is easy to get to and great to photograph.

The Falls Below the Bridge

This angle of Christine Falls is not the one you normally see. I took this from the bridge very close to the falls, where the water drops straight down below you only a few feet away. There is a viewpoint down the road, but I decided to get up to the edge of the bridge, and shoot it top to bottom in a vertical panorama. This distorts the height of the falls and makes it feel like it is snaking through the rocks in front of you.

Lupine in the Spring Thaw

In Iceland you expect to see ice and snow, but it is actually much more green and full of life than you might think. These colorful lupine were here to add some great contrast to the usual landscape of running water and snow.

The Hill and the Tree

I did a quick trip up this hill with a friend to make it to this spot just in time for the last bit of sunset. The sky over the bay was beautiful, but one tree sticking out on its own really stood out for me.

Zion Isn’t Just for Rocks

It’s also for waterfalls! A short hike and a steady tripod was all that it took to get a shot of this little waterfall.

Sausalito from the Bay

At first I was bummed I was getting off the water before sunset, but then the sun broke through the clouds right over Sausalito and lit up the harbor with bright yellow rays of light.

Rock Pocket

The Narrows in Zion is great place for a hike through the cold water. During a flood the rocks are lifted up and pushed into unique little pockets carved out of the wall. It almost looks like someone has carefully selected and stored each individual rock there.

Green and Red and Blue

The greenish water to the red lighthouse to the blue sky made quite the rainbow of colors at the breakwater. It was very cold, and I was standing on a icy pier with water on each side of me, so I didn’t take long to get this shot and get back in the car!

Wintery Travel Plans

I’m already mentally scoping out photo spots for my trip to Wisconsin this Christmas. Until then, I’ll have to settle for editing this icy image from last year. The combination of the sunrise and the ice formations from the waves crashing at Cave Point almost made it feel like being on another planet.

Back to Summer

I recently said I was ready for winter, but then last weekend rolled around. I did a great hike and enjoyed one of the warmest beach days I’ve had in Northern California in a long time!
