Default Muir Woods

Greg Chappell posted a few months ago some pictures he captured in his last trip to San Francisco, I was really imppresed of the beauty of the pictures that I planned to stay a few days after visiting San Francisco for work, unfortunately I had only one day off and I used it to visit the Muir Woods and some areas around it.

Beautiful place, and I like your processing. It can be a tough place to expose and interpret later in processing, the lighting is so contrasty. From the last image, looks like had your tripod with you, which makes you a much more dedicated photographer than me.

It is amazing how it clears out later in the afternoon. Mornings you often can't park within several hundred yards of the main gate by 10am.

Beautiful set Marcello. That last one is my favorite. Looks like you may have used your big stopper.

I lived in SoCal for 14-yrs but never saw this area, I wish I had. Yours and Greg's photos are truly magnificent in showing it. Beautiful images, thanks.

Thank you Greg, it is very challenging the exposure but I used a 300x ND filter that helped me to control the highlights and tripod of course.

I'm glad you like it Chipersei, I used a 300X ND filter to increase the exposure time.

California is a State with so many beautiful National Parks and scenarios to photograph, I would love to return some day and visit other places.

Thank you for the kind words Bob.

just noticed this set Marcelo, very nice, like Chi I am really drawn in by the last shot. EXIF says this was shot at 50mm, am I correct in assuming that was with the 12-50?

Thank you ramcewan, it was a great experience visiting this place.

I used the 12-50mm and a ND filter (300x) with a tripod.

A couple of hours north of SF we walked through a couple of state parks (Montgomery Woods SP in particular) that were every bit as impressive as Muir, way off the beaten path and virtually ours alone when we were there.
