Usually when I go out to Dry Lagoon it’s full of water. This time, I walked a couple hundred yards along an elk trail out into the lagoon. The grasses were spectacular. Nice day.
This time of year at Dry Lagoon is great. It’s WET. It’s also a risky place to visit. Going north along the lagoon or beach, it’s fine. But going south, there are some gorgeous rock formations. If you’re not careful and watching the tides, you’ll either be stranded or have a very long hike via Big Lagoon, 101, then the road back in to Dry Lagoon. This is one of my favorite places.
Reflection and clear water. Two things that aren’t usually occurring in Dry Lagoon.
The last time this trestle was used there were still first growth two to three hundred foot redwoods in this forest. Now, it’s just a planter for fallen seeds.
This is a recently reworked image from five years ago. Earlier this year, I decided to go back to the grove and reshoot it. Couldn’t find it.
An apparently simple image. When I was teaching, I’d ask students if a pencil was simple. After the overwhelming positive reply, I’d ask them to make one. Lots going on here.
Wonderful day at Dry Lagoon. The fog held right at the treetops.
I was curious how redoing this image from five years ago would change with my current workflow. Different. Crisper. Smoother. Cleaner. Interesting.
