Pacific Coast, Marin County, CA

July 2003

Late on a Saturday afternoon, Jon and I drove over to the Pacific coast near Stinson Beach in Marin County, CA, in the hopes of catching some of that golden late-afternoon light. Jon was trying out a rented Hasselblad to help him decide if going medium-format is right for him; I took the opportunity to put my relatively new Sigma 15-30 lens to the test and to attempt some serious landscape photography (I even used a tripod, for the first time in years!).

While the Pacific coast has a lot to offer in terms of rugged scenery, at this time of year it doesn't offer much in the way of vibrant color. Back in the postprocessing lab, I started experimenting with black-and-white to see if it could bring a more interesting perspective to things (gotta love digital--from color to B&W with a simulated orange filter in just a few clicks). I think the experiment was successful...see what you think!
