Bolinas Lagoon

Meta information: Nikon D70 Raw capture, AF-S VR-Zoom-Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G IF-ED at 200mm (appx 300mm 35mm equivalence); handheld using VR (vibration reduction).

Exif: ISO 200, 1/320 second, f/9.

Focus: Automatic, at infinity.

Post: Dark blue gradient applied with darker blue towards the bottom of the image, center lightened, routine level adjustments and workflow, fairly strenuous sharpening for Gaussian blur in the central (lagoon) area of the image.

I took this image a few days ago on a “field trip” with Nicky from the ridge line in Tamalpais State Park. What interests me is the pattern in the tidal Bolinas Lagoon. The flats are shown here at low tide.

Bolinas Lagoon is a fantastic and wild place, inhabited by seals and many other creatures, and with a huge tidal variation. It’s neat to see the buccolic farms in the distance behind this force of nature.
