365 Photo Project - Day 13

Taken: January 13, 2010, approx. 2:30 p.m.
Location: Sonoma Coast near Jenner

First sunny day in at least a week and my husband insisted we take a drive out to the Sonoma Coast, which we did – pugs and all. A beautiful day to play hooky. It’s roughly about a 30-minute drive from Healdsburg to the coast, another 10 minutes or so to Bodega Bay, one of my favorite spots on the coast.

We stopped near Jenner at this overlook where far below sea lions and gulls were competing for a spot on a warm sand bank. A friend says the photo reminds him of Planet Earth. I agree though I reserve the right to revisit this shot with Photoshop. Something about it I love and something about it I don’t. When I figure it out, I might even tell y’all what it is.

Shot with my Pentax K100D, the 50-200mm lens and edited gently in Photoshop.

This is by far my favorite picture you have posted… LUCKY 13. As for the thing that bothers you about the image… it bothered me too. I believe that it is too dark. If you play with the exposure or adjust the contrast it will bring our more detail… :D
