    What a clear day that one was!
    Any dust that might have been in the air must have been blown away by the wind!
    You used a polariser, too, didn't you?
    Or what explains that deep, deep blue sky?
    OK, the velvia produces these very saturated colours, but that deep blue going towards black in the sky ... film alone? :scratch:

    Anyhow, I best like the gate without fence. It makes you look once, twice, go "eh?" :er: and look again. Good!
    And - as I was saying - wonderful colours. I also like how the features on that slope (rocky patches) seems to mirror the clouds in the sky.

    And I also very much like that gnarled tree!
    I really do like gnarled trees, you know (along with the colour green, and old barns, and half-timbered houses, and windows and and and and and ;)).

    Wow, such blues! Awesome shots, I really like the first one. Looks like those fence posts have seen a fire or two.

    thanks :)

    i think that deep blue going to black happens because my 28mm lens with the polarizer can get some nasty vinigetting

    Very nice, #3 & 4 have great composition. I find the boat shot particularly interesting and a great choice of angle.

    Nice job-- those are wonderful, especially the one of the lone gate.
    I live close enough to Point Reyes, and my mom has dragged me on a hike similar to yours a couple of times. I agree, the views were brilliant, and the area up in the hills was so secluded and beautiful.
