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.
