Off to Germany

untitled - Leica M (Type 240), 21mm f/1.4 Summilux, ~f/8, 1/90s, ISO 200
Later this afternoon, I'll be off to Germany again for the week.  The fall time is one of my preferred times to visit L├╝beck (the other is December, there's a lot of snow but then there's also Christmas markets!).  I made this image at the at a set of docks across the street from the hotel last August.

Last Light at Garrapata State Beach

Last Light at Garrapata State Beach - Leica S2, 30mm, f/22, 8s, ISO 160
Its been over two years since I had last access to a Leica S camera.  Looking over the images I made with that camera, I really love the color I got out of it even with minimal to no work in Lightroom or Photoshop.

This was an 8s exposure made at Garrapata State Beach during the last light of the day.  I recently went back there and couldn't recognize the place, all the rocks I was familiar with seemed to have disappeared (or submerged I couldn't tell).

Man & Nature

Man & Nature - Leica M Monochrom, 50 Summilux, f/5.6, 1/1000s, ISO 320
So much going on in this image made from a viewing deck at the Monterey Bay Aquarium.  First there is the rocks with the Cormorants and Seals hanging out and a Pelican flying in.  Then there's all the people on kayaks out for a paddle on a nice day and finally a boat in the back with divers ready to get going.
