Through the Woods, and Over the Creek……..

  • Sick of all this beauty? You must be kidding! These in the woods are so gorgeous. So clear, like being on the trail. What kind of camera did you use on your trip? You are a magician with it, for sure.

    More, more . . .

  • Absolutely, beautiful!

  • It seems as if your trip worked out just perfect! Sometimes you just have to go with the flow. Those pictures are gorgeous. Event hough it is in California it looks just like my trip to Costa Rica. Amazing!

    By the way, you know how you told me to just kind of ignore my crush. It’s working! He is emailing and texting me like crazy. He is all, “I haven’t talked to you in a while, what’s going on.”

  • Gorgeous!

  • i was just looking at all your photos and can i just say, i need to move to big sur immediately! it’s so beautiful!

  • We will never tire of your photography Jessica!

    And bridges are magical, don’t you know that? Anything can happen because you are Inbetween…
    LOTR indeed.

    We have lots of old lime kilns around our area. I will try to remember to post a few pics.

  • I’M with you bridges go somewhere.great work.and i’m no softy? sian knows me to well. well i’m master in my own home i think???

  • beautiful, as always : )

  • I’m amazed that you captured all these super lovely shots under such difficult conditions (light in the camera and in your head, LOL).

    I know what you mean about the camping sites… California is either hit or miss with these things and you can only know once you’re ankle-deep in it.

  • Sorry to hear that you weren’t feeling well on the trip. The scenery is just amazing and I can quite understand you wanting to camp in solitude. Thanks for showing us the beautiful photos

  • What a beautiful place to hike. Your photos are so sharp and show so much detail. I agree with you the LCD screen on you camera really isn’t an indication of the photo quality. Always the way you go out to shot something and the unexpected stuff seems to turn out better then what you had in mind.

  • lydia: Not sick of it….yet….good :)……I’m a firm believer that my equipment is not necessarily the reason the photos come out the way they do, it takes practice, patience and a lot of trial and error! But to answer your question I use a Panasonic Lumix FZ30, nothing special by any means. A magician…..sweet!!

    meridith: Thank you :o)

    1218: It really did, except for the getting ill part, that I could have lived without! Costa Rica, really….hmmmm

    Great news about the crush thing, sometimes you have to show them the way 🙂

    elisabeth: Thanks!

    working girl two: I’m with you, I would love to move there…..mountains AND the ocean… beautiful!

    sian: Bridges ARE magical….I really didn’t explain it any better than that! The lime kilns were pretty interesting….I’d like to see some photos of the ones in your neck of the woods. Never tire of my photography…….hmmm…..can I get that in writing! haha

    POD: They just make you think that you’re the master!! haha

    a little bird: :o)

    TD: Believe me, I was amazed too! We did find a really nice one that was perfect though, I’ll have to remember to post about that also…..

    RR: I don’t mind camping around other people, I just don’t like to be on top of one another, you know?! Thank you for dropping in!

    liss: I am constantly surprised with what I get home to find… keeps things interesting that way!! It was a gorgeous hike 🙂

  • Goodness those are pretty pictures. They really show the area as this magical place I would like to visit!

  • I must say your photography is excellent and your narratives are interesting and I came to thank you for wandering into my birds blog which was just recently deleted and restarted.

    I have a lot more photos on and or on if you want to take a look when you have time.

  • REmember the man as the last word,YES DEAR.

  • What is to sicken of? It is all so beautiful. You are an incredible photographer. You did well, even in the sunny spots!
    That waterfall is awesome.

  • Carmen: Big Sur was definitely a magical place 🙂

    Abe: Thank you, I’m glad you stopped in! I like your blogs new look, very nice.

    gillian: It was the best waterfall, I was happy to have pulled off some decent shots in those harsh conditions…….heaven knows when I’m going back!?!?!

  • wow.
    so are these seriously straight exposure? no HDRI?


  • bryan: You know what, I have HDR software, but have yet to take the time to learn how it works!! These are indeed straight exposure shots….I only resized them in paint shop.

    Glad you trekked over to WW, thanks for the kudos… the kudos :o)

  • Sick of seeing your photographs? I think there is more chance of hell freezing over….lol! If I had to choose a favourite terrain, it would be woodland/forest. The smells, the colours, the sights, the textures, the wildlife…. everything about it is special, and you have managed to capture so much of these things in your photographs.

    I am so sorry to hear that you were really unwell on the hike. II am sure that it was worth every uncomfortable step, now that you can look back on the beautiful images that have been captured forever.

  • Getty: It was well worth the discomfort to have seen those sights….although, I hope the next vacation will be virus free!!!!!

    I feel the same way you do about the woods…I am most alive when I’m outdoors amongst nature…..
