The summer and fall of 2017 found me focusing my photography on northern California. Started with a road trip up the coasts of Sonoma, Mendocino, Humboldt, Del Norte and southern Oregon. I followed that up with several trips to Marin, in particular to Mount Tamalpais and the Marin Headlands.
These pictures are presented by location south to north, rather than as part of a chronological narrative, due to the somewhat rambling nature of my travels. Besdies, how many times do you really want to read, ‘I drove up the winding roads to Mount Tamalpais’…. or it was foggy at the beach near Pescadero. so I drove up to Skyline….
