I have to say, folks on board were NOT ready for this type of weather, but when it cleared up we were in sunset, rainbow paradise.
I have so many frames of this section of Na Pali from the Pacific, so thought I’d go with some of my favorite workflow using VSCO filters.

While waiting for the Milky Way to rise a couple weeks ago I decided to play with some star trails–not usually my cup of tea but thought it was the perfect opportunity to let the D800E I was borrowing do its thing while I was sprawled out on the ground, listening to the crashing waves and watching for shooting stars.
Every now and then I like these shorter star trails, and once the Milky Way rose the 45 minutes dedicated to this shot was enough. I feel night photography is often even more open-ended than general landscape work, and sometimes I embrace the hell out of light pollution. A large boat was making its way north and added the warm glow, the Milky Way rose in the middle of the trails on the left and because of personal taste I use really cold white balances when shooting the night sky–it just happens to fit into my work flow. And I think it added to this wanna-be-Alex-Grey-esque psychedelic scene.

I was zoomed in at 70mm on this, thus the really high ISO to keep my shutter speed as fast as possible.

After the Big Sur fire in December the road to Pfeiffer was closed, but a local resident got a few of us in through a back road. Look at that sand. Not a single footprint. After this experience I’m not sure I’ll be shooting here at Solstice for many years to come, but it’s still my favorite beach on earth.
