Pt Reyes Nat Seashore

We just returned from Pt Reyes National Seashore about an hour north of San Francisco, a large peninsula that extends into the Pacific. It has miles of sandy and cliff lined beaches, forests, grasslands, and wildlife including bobcats, shorebirds, elk, deer, owls, coyotes, hawks, elephant seals, and many species of birds. Of course since I did not bring my long lens, and only a wide angle, we did see 2 bobcats, coyotes, and 3 huge male elk. The bobcats bounded across the road at such speed that I still might not have gotten the shot.

Also please follow me on Instagram @ImagePhotoPro where I have been posting much more frequently, and have well over a hundred of some of my better images of the last few years, all in one place.
