Andrew Molera State Park

Day Thirty Four. After getting ever so slightly more lost than I generally prefer while looking for Garrapata State Park (which, as it turns out, is all but unmarked), landed in Andrew Molera State Park, which turned out to be more than a suitable substitute. I again only used the 50mm f/1.4 in the hopes of climbing the next section of its learning curve. This time, I experimented with the full range of f-stops, and it turns out that if I shoot it as narrow as it goes (f/16) I might as well have the 18-70mm lens hooked up dialed to 50mm. The 50mm f/1.4 is not a landscape lens ... not that I ever thought it was, but today conclusively proved it. After getting my fill of sea gulls and doing a study on waves (and getting wet), hopped on down to Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park, where the lighting prevented me from capturing any further shots of the infamous waterfall. I did, however, get in some interesting long exposures of moving water. Really wish I'd had a tripod with me, but oh well ... they came out reasonably well for being hand held :)
