p.1 #1 · Big Sur Drama


Just returned from eleven days, 2000 miles of driving, around my favorite piece of Central California coastline. With two major storms, steady & large northwest swells, extreme tides, and amazing light, it was an incredible trip.

Wow, sounds like quite a trip and a great time to being doing it judging by these images. These images are wonderful and the wave action is quite impressive, especially in 2, 3, and 4.

Wow! These are all good, but the 3rd just knocks my socks off! So clear, perfect composition, and I love the way you've shown two separate 'garden rooms' in the one shot. Love it!

Nice photos. Brings back a lot of memories for me from when I first moved to California. I wasn't a photographer then, but your photos took me back. Have to plan a trip to the West Coast soon.

Lovely images Derek. No. 4 is just awesome. However, I love No. 1 because there is a serenity in that image that connects with me.

Hey Derek,

Nice working of the light in these, especially #1 and 4 where you demonstrate how to make hot highlights in the water work.

Derek
Beautiful shots - all of them.
One of my favorite places too - I just have a little further to travel to get there.
Many thanks for sharing these

Nice work Derek. The surf sure seems a lot more hostile compared to when I saw it

Steve!!!!!!!!!! Woke up one morning at O Dark Thirty, 32, with a very painful itch in the inner thigh, and wouldn't you know it, tiny tick 3/4 embedded!! After driving the entire campground and into town to see if anyone was awake on a Sunday morning, and could give me some 411, I finally woke the camp host to find out if Lyme disease was a problem with Big Sur ticks!! I was pretty worried but he assured me he'd been the host there for a number of years and that it wasn't a worry. Heated up the end of a small needle nose pliars and backed the sucker out. Hurt for days, like a major bruise on the inside of my leg and the actual wound is only now (2 weeks later) losing its scab. Still made it in time for earth's shadow/sunrise at Pfeiffer BEach though!!

Perfect way to get them out! Never pour oil on them, that will get them out but they puke into the victim before they leave. Nasty little things!

That was the big worry last time I was there with you.

Great stuff, Derek! Love 'em all but I'm partial to the 1st and last.
