ImageQuest Photo Workshop - "Steinbeck Country: Monterey and the Big Sur Mountains"

Mar 28-30, 2008

Dave Wyman and a small group of photographers explored the Monterey area this weekend and composed their own photo essays. Dave photography and prose is truely a work of art. Here is mine.


Early morning pier reflections

Dave took this, of me in a Steinbeck'ian mood

Sea lions, deciding the pecking order for today

Wildlife clinging to an ancient pier piling

and dancing to their own music

Geometric contours in the bay waters

Early morning dew at Carmel Mission

Inside the mission, a disturbing visage of Jesus stared down on us.

Candlelight reflects off these ancient pavers

Above Carmel Valley, I found this small tree frog and coaxed him to model for us on my Patagonia jacket

Shooting Star, freshened with an early Spring rain the night before

Mossy rocks at the old Stone Cabin site on the Carmel River

the river weaves...

...hypnotic patterns


... more photos to come...
