A landscape photographer's tour
UK to San Francisco
Keith's travels in California and the Pacific Northwest - April-May 2007
- This photo-diary covers a driving trip up the coast from San Francisco in April/May 2007 along the Pacific highway. Now I've returned, I've included some of my travel photography from this trip in the main Gallery, and updated any info that may be of help to people who come across these pages as part of their planning for driving tours of the California and Oregon coasts, looking for places to stay or sites to visit. It's a great place for a vacation, or just a road trip up the Pacific coast to photograph some of the scenery. If you've any questions about the hotels/inns/motels where I stayed, then please do feel free to drop me a line.
Ok, just travelling today, but I thought I'd take a few shots from the plane, since after getting the 7:55am flight from London to Chicago, I discovered that it's often quite empty and had a row of seats to myself.
Anyway, no trip starts without a (slightly weak) cup of tea. Todays pics are taken with the free Sony S500 I recently got with a data projector, so are from jpeg files and through a plane window - not the best of quality ;-)
Much better is the Pizza you get before arriving at Chicago (flying AA)
This is looking over the gulf of St Lawrence
well around here according to the plane's navigation system
And looking north into Quebec
Sim city? nope, Chicago
And more new housing near Chicago
Lots to do in the mid-west
Here's some snowy mountains in Wyoming I believe
The edge of the great Salt lake, Utah
More of the Utah salt flats
And arriving at San Francisco
Meanwhile, watching QVC selling cookies, I check the lenses I've brought along on the trip
15mm, 16-35mm, 24mm Tilt/Shift, 24-70mm, 70-200mm
I'm in Millbrae, not far from SF airport, and tomorrow I'm heading north.
The weather forecast is not too good for the next few days, but who knows... :-)
