I spend a lot of time kayaking, exploring, and photographing the natural world. Motorless boats, cameras, and nature all go so well together- gliding silently along, with only the murmur of the paddle to interrupt the songs of the myriad birds, slipping along as just another shadow, observing and capturing moments of calmness and clarity. Of course, it’s not always calm, peaceful bliss, but I like to imagine that it is, and so that is what I am sharing with all of you, some of that stillness of nature that I actually do find most of the time that I am out there… the calm beauty that nature can be.
My most common (yet by no means only) place that I get to explore and share is Tomales Bay, a beautiful yet rugged place in Northern California. It is a fantastic area to explore with a rich and varied ecosystem that supports a huge diversity of life. I am often amazed at how much life there is in its waters and along its shores.
This is a little project that I just finished up for something else, and I had a lot of fun making it. I’ve decided to share it here, since it shows a bit of what I do, and why I do it. Hope you all enjoy it.
