Jenner by the Sea (part six)
And so we come to the last day of our getaway. I can't tell if I am more upset about there being no more images to process than I was at having to leave Jenner that day. At least you can see what the rock formations look like in strong morning light. Of course, it had to be our last day in town for the sun to come out 🤔 It was a bittersweet ride home. NOTE: The images of the hummer are fuzzy at best. These were handheld images. I had the shutter speed up to 1/2000s and I still couldn't freeze-frame that little flitterer. Quickdraw I'm not.

From our deck at River's End Restaurant & Inn
I can't say enough about this locale. Every time I am here I am astounded at its bounty of beauty. For my money, the Inn and Restaurant are both 5-star facilities. The "getaway" ambiance never quits. There's wildlife, the sea, the seashore, the hills, wildflowers, and hiking trails for every ability. I can't think of anything that's missing from the perfect getaway...except the rest of the world. Perhaps that's the kicker. Nothing interferes with your life here. You may think it was getting lighter as the night went on. Not really. As it got darker I had to open the aperture more and add shutter time. This makes for a lighter image. Photo magic! 😉

Day three started out with promise. The sun was fighting its way through the overcast and the fog. By 8 am that was just a memory. The fog won. Still, those conditions can make for great photography light, so long as it doesn't completely "fog" you out. Pea soup is NOT a good medium. This day was a good one and by the end of the day, from about 5 pm onward it got kind of magical. I'll save those images for their own collection (part five). I'll probably release them tomorrow, but I might have to marvel at my own work for so long it may take until Saturday. ;~)

This day was really gloomy. From start to finish, not one bit of sunlight. Sometimes that's a photographer's dream. Harsh sunlight is no bonus, but total gloom isn't always great either. I had to liven these images up in post-processing. The seashore is especially hard to capture in poor light, bright or dark. I set up a panorama but not all the images came out well enough to use, so, no panorama.
Jenner by the Sea (part two)
This group is too big for one sitting. I'm going to break it in two and feed you the second batch with the next release. The image of the brown bldg. with the black highlighter around two windows, shows our room. The cabins were all booked, so we took the room in the restaurant bldg. The first panorama is of the Sea Lion Nursery. The second one is of "Jenner by the Sea", the Inn is to the left.
