I happened to be in California the last two weeks on work related business. Over the weekend my cousin drove me down the scenic pacific coast on the scenic Route 101 from San Francisco to the Big Sur and back. Sadly the day was overcast but we managed to take in some pretty sights along the way, including the famous McWay Falls in the Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park. Sadly in the absence of a wide-angle lens, I had to resort to taking overlapping photos with my 50mm and then stitching them in Adobe Lightroom.
Here is another close-up of the McWay Falls, this time in HDR.
Details of carvings on one of the gigantic doors on the passion facade of that Antoni Gaudi classic – La Sagrada Familia. The carvings portray different stories from the bible. This structure has been under construction since the 1880. More fantastic pictures from this basilica to follow soon!
Something about bridges and sunsets – the contrast of human effort and natural beauty! The Mackinac Bridge connects the upper and lower peninsulas of Michigan across the Mackinac Straits that join two great lakes (Huron and Michigan). The Mackinac Bridge is over 8Km long with the longest span of over 1Km. The following photograph is as a result of a long exposure at sunset from a place on Mackinaw City.
