Trawler on Tomales Bay

Julian and I spent a fun afternoon yesterday, hiking Steep Ravine and the Millerton Point trail in Tomales Bay. But it didn’t seem like a great day for photography, although we did get to examine a bull up close, and study a grotesque half-eaten deer carcass. What fun!

In Marshall, we wandered around the old boatyard, with wrecks of boats up on blocks, and then shared a chowder and oyster dinner at Tony’s. The food wasn’t much to write home about, but the view of Tomales Bay, Point Reyes, and the Ann Marie (the trawler shown in the photo) were great.

As the sun set, I tried a variety of shutter speed and aperture combinations, taking care to underexpose relative to my light readings because meter readings into the sun have a tendency to overexpose. This exposure caught a wild prismatic effect from the sun’s rays.
