Landscape Nirvana

"The world is going to pieces and people like Adams and Weston are photographing rocks!"  Henri Cartier-Bresson, the Godfather of Street Photography, said that during the 1930's as the world tumbled into depression.  Of course had HCB been to Point Lobos, he would have traded that toy of a Leica, hoisted a manly 8x10 view camera and gone on a kelp-shooting, rock-snapping, cypress-hugging tour de force.

Oh heck, words can't do it justice.  On to some pics from my scouting missions.

 

And all these years I thought Point Lobos was made of black and white.  Sunset last night near Whaler's Cove.

 

That's better - also last night's sunset at Whaler's Cove..

 

From the Cypress Grove trail.

 

Oooh, gnarled cypress in black and white.  I'm feeling a photorgasm coming on.

 

Yeah HCB, the world is still falling to pieces. 

 

And we're still shooting rocks.

 

In China Cove.

 

Along Cypress Grove trail.

 

Lots of Harbor Seals near here.

 

Mmmm, gentle surf washing over polished black pebbles.

 

Kelp swaying in the current.

 

Do not fall into the jaws!
