Point Lobos State Park

Point Lobos Natural Reserve is a California State Park and I’ve gotta say, it is absolutely stunning!  We went there last year and I realized that I didn’t like the way I processed the photo, so I revamped it here and am much happier with the way it looks and fits more with the style I’m doing now.

Sometimes nature mimics other things, like when you look up into the sky and see a cloud that looks like a swan.  In this case, the evening light and the shape of this tree trunk reminded me of something else………..What do you see?

Up Close in the Forest

The other day we went to Redwood Regional Park in Oakland and it was a beautiful, warm day.  The dense redwoods provided a nice cover from the sun as we meandered through the forest.  Most people don’t realize Oakland has such beauty.  It has the perfect climate, a fantastic location, and the parks in the hills are absolutely gorgeous.

As we were walking around, I took some pictures of the redwoods but this grouping of pine cones caught my eye.  I thought to myself…how can I present this differently than just a straight up shot.  I love experimenting to create artful images and Photoshop really is like a “digital paintbrush” to me.  Hope you enjoy this bit of the forest!
