We Just Get It Done! - San Francisco  2015
Construction site in San Francisco. At times it seems as if all of San Francisco is one gigantic construction site.

Ferrari Logo - Marin County  2015

For a long time I was admiring Maserati, but now I think I've switched my allegiance to Ferrari.

Because of the horse logo, you know.

Yosemite Rain - 4

Yosemite Rain 2015 Video from Mike Mundy on Vimeo.

The rain steadily increased in intensity, and by the time Mike got back to his tent (documenting his arrival with his iPhone) it was really coming down. He didn't have to take that much time in deciding to pack up and leave. Everything got tossed into the back of the truck to await drying-out in Marin.

Half Dome, Storm Clouds - Yosemite  2015

Cliffs, Rain - Yosemite  2015
Mike had to resort to the old camera-under-the-parka routine. It was at this point that the viewfinder for the E-PL5 went missing.

Monday Merganser Blogging

Merganser - El Portal  2015

Mike had seen this fellow out of the corner of his eye several times. Finally he splashed into the river just opposite to Mike's camp.

There has been an earlier merganser post, in 2009, on the mikereport. That photo was taken with a Canon G9, this photo with an Olympus E-M10, its larger sensor providing a better picture.

Rock Wall, Rain

Rock Wall - El Portal  2015

Mike woke up at 4:45 AM to the sound of rain on the tent.

He had been planning an excursion into the Sierra foothill area, but the weather changed his plans. He resolved to head up into Yosemite Valley to check out the atmospheric conditions. His first stop was across the Foresta Bridge to take a tripod shot of this rock wall.
