Failure making california/shotrockvista.jpg

The Shot Rock Vista along highway 4 in the Sierra Nevada mountains, with a cloudbank half over the mountains.

Failure making california/donnel-lake.jpg

Donnel Lake, an artificial lake in the sierras.

Failure making california/bodiewide.jpg

A wider view of Bodie, the ghost town east of the Sierra Nevada.

Failure making california/burney2.jpg

Another shot of Burney Falls. The falls tumble over porous volcanic rock, so the water seeps out all over the rock wall around the falls. This 180 degree shot, hand-held with Pentax, shows the river bending off to the right but in fact it goes downstream as you might think.

Failure making california/jenbeach.jpg

The town of Jenner, and the cragy california coastline at the mouth of the Russian river.

Closeup of the town

Lassen Volcanic National Park. Digital camera.

Another view of Lassen and the Chaos Crags. Digital Camera

The town of Mt. Shasta, along with Lake Siskiyou and Mt. Eddy, from the side of Mt. Shasta itself. Low-res digital.

The back of the sierras, along 395 near June lakes

Mt. Shasta from up near Gumboot Lake.

The mating season of the elephant seals at Ano Neuvo state park. Well worth seeing. Sadly, the foggy day didn't let me do great photography.

Hand-held pano with Olympus Stylus Epic from the deck of the Getty Museum in Los Angeles. You can see downtown (a bit hazy) and out to Santa Monica. Due to hand-held nature, it is poorly cropped on the left.

San Francisco Bay, all of it, after a snowstorm at twilight.

San Jose and some of silicon valley at twilight. From Monte Bello Ridge.

28mm shot of San Diego and the bridge from Coronado. Foggy day with lots of haze. I need to return to San Diego in winter to shoot it properly.

One of my favourites. This tall pano features Half Dome lit by the setting sun, and a fisherman in the Merced. The interesting thing about this is the two are shot with different exposures, so this panorama shows more than an ordinary camera could show.

Another vertical to get a clearer shot of Yosemite Falls.

The Trinity Alps in Northern California. They're very hard to get to and not seen by many.

A full 360 degree low-res pano in Yosemite Valley.
