Photos of the Week
A few favorites from a recent trip to the coast of Northern California...

Your eye can't help but be drawn to the contorted and intriguing shape of this Valley Oak.

Sunset over the Pacific at Bodega Head, CA. This section of the coast features high headlands and boulders of all size in the surf.

A juvenile Red-tailed Hawk at Ellis Creek wetland complex near Petaluma, CA.

Sunset over Bodega Harbor. I used an 18mm wide-angle lens for this shot. Note cluster of birds.

Here they are again: Marbled Godwits captured with a 270mm lens.
