Sweet Salmon Creek

September 25th, 2011

This shot was taken on an incredibly windy evening in Bodega Bay! It's taken from a pull out off of Highway 1, and overlooks Salmon Creek running into the Pacific Ocean at North Salmon Creek Beach. It's two shots, 1 exposed for the sky and 1 exposed for the foreground. I used masked layers in Photoshop to blend the two together. I'm pretty happy with it, wish it was a tad more in focus but I feel the wind contributed to that a lot as well!

Canon EOS 40D, Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM, Manfrotto tripod, Adobe Lightroom 3, Adobe Photoshop CS5.

I like the color of the the sky, and the balance between the beach, the river and the sky.

in the left, at middle height, is still visible the border between the two shots, but it isn't annoying.

I LOVE THIS PICTURE- AMAZING SHOT! I have been frequenting Gualala(north of here)since I was a little boy. I have always loved this spot when we passed it. We still visit Anchor Bay to this day for fishing and diving, and I feel so grateful that you could do it such amazing justice! Thank you. We can always use more photos of this area. Nice work!

I went to school at Sonoma State, and have been to Salmon Creek many times... I don't remember it EVER looking this amazing though!
