Drake's Beach

Day 15 in black and white.  Drake's Beach lies on the south side of the Point Reyes Peninsula, and since the wind was coming from the north (and a very cold wind it was!) this beach was very calm.  Also I think we got there just as the tide was starting to come in, although I'm not sure about that.  Anyway, the water patterns were very interesting.  I mostly tried photographing into the sun which put the water patterns at an angle.  This was my only shot straight toward the waves, and it had a strong side light.  Turns out it was by far my favorite, because I like the water pattern better this way, and because it isn't too contrasty.

This is a great b/w and I know this area well. Your Inverness shot of the sailboat is absolutely ethereal!

Happy blue moon birthday to your blue moon baby.
