    I took a long weekend off to ride down to visit my old man in Carmel, and decided to take the scenic route through the redwoods along the northern California coast.

    Before continuing down the coast to Fern Canyon (where I got in a long dirt road ride alongside the dunes).

    Combining my two favorite pastimes is always delightful.

    :bravo-009:Sweet shots of the redwoods. You got some amazing light on the redwoods and fern canyon. Especially #1 in the transition from shadow to light

    Beautiful shots of awesome Northern CA. Love the Klamath coastal shot. That coastal fog caught me off guard when I was there. Went from a sweaty mid 80s in Crescent City to a bone chilling 50s by the time I reached Trinidad.

    Enjoyable pictures. My faves are #3 and #4 for the mood and #5 for its simplicity.

    Thanks all. Yes, the light there is almost otherworldly. And after seeing the histogram get maxed out on both ends while trying to get the exposure right, I am amazed at how much range the A7II's sensor was able to capture, and Lightroom was able to extract. We live in good photographic times.

    Really nice.
    We're off to N Cali on Tuesday, although I don't think we'll be able to get as far north as that. I shall be packing a warmer sweater in the light of your comments, though!
