Welcome to The Week That Was, episode 62, The Winter Wonderland Edition. I thank Rosemary for hosting last week and for selecting my Sharkfin Cove photo.

The usual rules can be found here:
www.friendlyphotozone.com/forum/52-TW3/1...s-or-TW3-%28Rules%29

Let's run this until midnight your time on Christmas Eve, 12/24. That way, the winner will find an extra gift in their stocking. An extra 3 pics for your holiday-themed images.

I just returned to the coastal paradise of Davenport on Saturday for another hiking adventure. Here are a few to get us rolling:


Davenport Sea Stacks



Algae Wall

do not step on any of the green places or you will know the meaning of pain.


Panther Beach Sea Channel

experimenting with a colored filter and some light painting for this; it was totally black down in the crack.


OK, let's get 'em...

Wait, a post without a Golden Gate Bridge photo? I don't think so. Here is the lunar eclipse on Saturday morning. I was shoulder to shoulder with hundreds of photographers on the beach near Crissy Field for this.

Ok Mike, so you are amazing us again with your totally awesome seascapes and moon shots. Some of us were out actually working this weekend...(not for judging). Note: I've decided to grow my hair out for the season.

terrific start to this week, gang!

Tim, i knew you were growing your hair a bit, but wow, that's impressive. lovin' the dreads.

Jimbo - i really love the aqua shades in the water, especially on #1 and #3; makes the images pop! I also love Posting Nature for the warm yellow tones and wispy clouds. This has a painting like feel about it which i enjoy.

here's another from Panther Beach on Saturday. This one incorporates a blue/yellow filter to get that gold effect in the tidepools. I used 15mm for the entire outing.



There were some huge waves out there which aren't captured by the slow shutter images; a couple of times i had to grab the camera and take off running. Here is one showing how close the surf was crashing:



I stayed put and luckily didn't get very wet.

Fantastic start from you Jimbo. Your depth of colour in some of these images is really amazing. They're really capturing my eye. I always love that soft look you can give water, and as Mike mentioned, that aqua colour is beautiful. Posting Nature is my fav so far.

Mike: Again, very glad you're not judging! So the green stuff is slippery then? Glad you were able to stay dry and share some of these, the effect of the filter on the tide pool is gorgeous.

Tim: I like that hat, very impressive dreads. FP has one somewhere with white braids, or did you burn that one FP? :D

Impressive water shots Jimbo.
You have the knack for capturing nature by a stream.
'Posting Nature' has a real painted look to it. I like it!

I too have a yellow/blue CP filter and it works wonders with proper lighting; your image is perfect!

...nice 'doo' Earl! :bleh:
