CS Sherin, August 22, 2019

This will conclude the photographic highlights from our Bay area vacation this past July. It has been so much fun sharing and revisiting these moments in time.

The following photos are from some of my favorites places (already shared in parts 1-3, but from different angles), and some places and things that haven’t been shared yet.

As always, if you see any photos (or art images) on this site that you would like to blow up as art for your walls, please contact me to order a custom, high resolution, archival quality print. Likewise, if you would like to purchase a digital copy for your personal or business use.

Photography: California Vacation, Part One

CS Sherin, August 1, 2019

We had a great time in the Bay area this July. From state beaches to seeing the ancient redwoods in Muir Woods, nature was where it was at — and is at. In general, we consider a good vacation one in which we can connect with nature, relax on a beach, encounter other cultures and diversity, and walk for many, many miles each day to explore nature and local experiences.

Being near the ocean and in the woods, and out in the sunshine with the cool ocean breezes brought me a great deal of peace, strength, and even some real, lasting rejuvenation. I am thankful for the experiences and movement.

To start, here are some close-ups from some of the hand full of state beaches we visited along Highway 1:
