Lafayette Reservoir & Las Trampas Regional Wilderness - SF Bay Area, CA

Last month I took a trip to Lafayette Reservoir in Lafayette, CA with a friend and dropped by Las Trampas Regional Wilderness in Contra Costa County, CA on the way back. I took quite some scenery and wildlife photos at these 2 locations. Today, I will be sharing the photos I took over there with you.

I took the trip on August 8th, 2016. I took quite a lot of trips/photo shoots in the month of August, so I didn't have much time to work on my photos. Then in September, I experienced several viral infections (my immune system is horrible) which delayed my photo processing even further. This is why I'm only getting around to posting these photos now. I hope you enjoy.

Shark Fin Cove, Half Moon Bay, Big Basin - August 2016 Vlog (Part 3)


I've done quite a lot of traveling in the month of August. I visited places such as Mt. Tamalpais, Shark Fin Cove, Half Moon Bay, and Big Basin. I have separated the video clips I shot through out the month of August into 3 parts. Links to the other 2 parts Part 1 | Part 2 ).

In part 3, I show you video from my trips to Shark Fin Cove in Davenport, CA, Half Moon Bay, CA and Big Basin in Boulder Creek, CA.

In this vlog:
  • Scenery from Shark Fin Cove near Santa Cruz, CA on the side of State Route 1. I talk about my aerial and DSLR scenery photos and videos I took while there. I also show you some of the flowers growing nearby.
  • I go to Half Moon Bay, CA after Shark Fin Cove. I show you the dinner I had at Sam's Chowder House and some scenery from Half Moon Bay. I see a fish jump out of the water and it was all on video!
  • Drive back to home to the East Bay from Half Moon Bay. See my drive through the clouds, and some sunset scenery from the reservoir in San Mateo and San Mateo Bridge.
  • My trip in Big Basin State Park in Boulder Creek, CA. Come see the tall Coast Redwoods (Sequoia sempervirens) and Sempervirens Falls.
