Now is the Best Time for Photography

Travel photography defies common travel wisdom.

Venice Beach

When most travelers settle down for their dinner, I often try to capture the best light of the day. When other travelers dread the colder weather and declare that it is best to stay home or shop for the holidays, I feel a strong draw to go out and take photographs. Suddenly, my summer slumber is over and I can hardly sit still for a weekend.

The onset of winter brings an excitement to pictures that is impossible to capture during the "boring" summer months. Photography between fall and spring is pure excitement. The clouds are back in Southern California, creating the most spectacular sunsets (see above). During the last couple of weeks, I have seen dolphins underneath the Golden Gate Bridge, spotted migrating whales from the shores of Montana de Oro, and seen playful flocks of seals circling the Avila Pier. It is almost as if the animals know my secret and just waited for the crowds to disappear back into their comfortable and warm homes and overcrowded malls.

Egret

Unfortunately, there are still some strange blokes out there. Shortly after I took the photograph of this egret snatching himself a lunch-lizard, a man walked up to me, pulled out his point and shoot camera, took a photograph of the egret, and then shooed it away. However, the reduced amount of travelers during the off-season makes such occurrences rare and tolerable. I assume the lizard would not have minded an earlier rescue and would disagree with me.

Seals

During the course of a single day, we also saw several whales blowing in the distance, the seals that you can see above, and a few fishing pelicans (see below). Here you can see one taking a dive from a high altitude to catch fish below the water's surface. The pelicans are amazing fishers with a grace that you would not expect from the sometimes clumsy-looking birds.

Pelican

We did get several storm systems coming through this area during the last view days. As a friend told me how this would spoil his plans, my thoughts drifted to the incredible opportunities and the fantastic light you can catch with a coming and going storm. Low cloud coverage with a sliver of open sky in the distance to let the sun come through is the perfect condition for dramatic sunsets and I got lucky twice within a few weeks. The first photograph at the start of this article is from Venice Beach. You can see the lifeguard towers in the foreground and the most amazing sunset. Somehow, the sunsets in Southern California are more vivid than anywhere else in the world.

The second chance was this sunset at McWay Falls. The falls are located in Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park and plunge onto a secluded beach in a tranquil cove. Fortunately, we stuck around long enough to see the sunset that lit the last remaining clouds of this day's storm.

Waterfall

Do not let a few raindrops or a drop in temperature "drop" your excitement for the outdoors. There is no better time than the coming months for photography in the Golden State of California. Go out and see this magical place. Still not sure where to go? Then try my new iPhone application. It will guide you to the most photogenic locations in California. It is now available on iTunes:

Wonderful photos. What

Wonderful photos. What equipment did you use to capture those? I hope you can specify the lens, aperture and shutter so perhaps I can try (although I don't think I can really match your lens, maybe at least the style). Thanks for sharing!

HDR

This is actually a HDR shot composed of three separate images. You need a Tripod and a cable release and a software like HDR Expose or Photomatix for that.
Further I used a wide-angle lens and a relatively narrow aperture of f/11 or so with the camera set to aperture priority (which is always the best choice for composite pictures).

beautiful work. Nature

beautiful work. Nature photography isn't easy. I would appreciate if you took a look at my blog too!

Great work

I know taking each one of these photos probably took hours to set up or get just right. Really good job capturing these moments, the hard work shows. My favorite shot is the bird taking a nose dive!

Great timing! Did you use

Great timing! Did you use any hdr filter on the last picture?

Correct

Hello Manuel,

you are right. I composed this shot of multiple exposures to create the HDR effect.
