Well, that is what it feels like here! I am having fun playing!!! Last weekend, we hiked up the Matt Davis Trail to the top of Mt. Tamalpais. I do not take tripods along on this sort of trek, so handheld a series of 3 bracketed exposures to see what I could do with this amazing scene. No, I did not manage to hold the camera steady at the lower shutter speeds, and yes, I blended the three exposures with Photomatix. Then, I just let loose with Nik Viveza and Color Efex and PLAYED! I do know that play is at the heart of creativity, and it was such fun! The result is an image of how it really FELT to be in this amazing space. This had to have been one of the most gorgeous hikes I have ever done in this goregous Bay Area where I live.
If you are ever in Stinson Beach, get out of your car and hike up Matt Davis to Steep Ravine, and head down to the Dipsea back to your start. 7 miles of pure bliss!
