Tomales, Bodega Bay, Duncans Mills, Jenner - California's Coast

From 7/17/2013 to 8/2/2013, I took a road trip from the SF Bay Area to Vancouver, BC, Canada. Half of the trip was spent driving up the west coast. On my trip, I visited many famous places such as Seattle, Butchart Gardens, Mount Rainier, and much more. Obviously I got many coastal shots and many places that isn't as famous. The reason I am posting it now is because the high amount of photos I took equaled a high amount of processing time. I took a bit over 2000 photos on the trip. After stitching the panoramas, compositing the HDRs, and picking out photos from the repeats, I have a bit over 1000 photos to show you guys. The photos will be split into parts. I will link you to the previous and next parts on each post just like I did with my Death Valley National Park photos and my Yellowstone/Grand Teton National Park photos. Hope you enjoy this chain of posts!

Message From The Photographer: NBC asked for permission to use one of my photos! So excited. :) Read about it on this blog post.

The photos for today are from California's coast. The blog post will include photos from Tomales, Bodega Bay, Duncans Mills, and Jenner. All the photos were shot near SR-1 as I drove up the coast.

I decided to do a black and white process to bring out the details of the clouds a bit better.  

Another photo from Tomales, CA taken on the side of SR-1. I think this is one of the best shots I took on this trip. Reminds me of that song Country Roads by John Denver.
