A Curious Seagull

A Curious Pigeon

A seagull on the pier in Santa Cruz, California.

This was taken early one morning on a sunrise photowalk with Marcus. It was so early I almost slept in and had to hurry to catch up with him!

A Cold Sunrise

A Cold Sunrise

Last night was the coldest yet this winter. It’s been amazingly mild so far but this morning cars were encased in a thick frost, the lock on my car was frozen solid and the thermometer in my car said -2C. Lovely sunrise however. Brrrrr.

Sunrise in Playa Blanca

Sunrise in Playa Blanca

Playa Blanca lies on the southern coast of the island of Lanzarote. It’s a beautiful town, built entirely with tourism in mind.

Sunrise wasn’t what I had hoped it would be. The sun is blocked by the new Rubicon Marina (it’s so new that Google Maps thought we were swimming in the sea when we were walking around the shops and stalls there!) until it rises a few degrees above the horizon but it did light up the clouds floating high above my head long before it rose in the distance.

In the other direction from where I stood is an extinct volcano. Unluckily for me I didn’t look at the “photos of nearby attractions” in Google Now until the last evening when I saw an amazing sunset over that volcano. Unfortunately the sun had already gone down which means I’ll have to go back there again. What I go through for my photography. The pain and suffering…

Sunrise over Blarney

Sunrise over Blarney

This morning my son and I joined other parents and children to walk to school. It was a beautiful morning and I captured the glow of the early morning sun before it broke over the horizon and over the roof of Blarney Woollen Mills.

Early morning Santa Cruz Wharf

Early morning Santa Cruz Wharf

This was the view from my hotel room at The Dream Inn, Santa Cruz last week. Seems like a million miles away now, but in fact it’s only about, oh, maybe six thousand miles.

Anyway, I was there with almost all of Automattic for our annual meetup. It’s a fabulous location, the early morning light is amazing and the people I was with were great.

Lots more photos to follow, but in the meantime, check out photos by Kevin, John, Krista, Marcus and Beau and when I find more I’ll link to them from here!

A Cabin in the Rockies

A Cabin in the Rockies

A small wooden cabin or hut sits in a car park near the houses Automattic stayed in at Breckenridge in Colorado. The original shot can be seen in my Flickr stream or in the Automattic group there. This version has been extensively dodged and burned to bring out the contrast between light and dark.

Late posting of today’s photo because of the camera club tonight. It was model shoot night and I got a few shots but I’m not very comfortable directing so I’m undecided as to how well the photos came out.
