Monday Mockingbird Blogging

Mockingbird - San Rafael  2015

I remember seeing mockingbirds quite frequently when I lived in Los Angeles. Not all that common in Marin, at least in the Ross Valley; this one was active near the Target store in San Rafael.

Tra la la, twidelee dee dee.

Also, in the news, another mockingbird-related story.

Churches of Mariposa

Churches of Mariposa - Mariposa  2015
A goodly quantity, I'd say.

(Going through last quarter's pix, seeing if there's anything that's been overlooked.)

Moon, Pond, Ocean

Moon, Pond, Ocean - Point Reyes  2015
Moonset. Within a few minutes the scene had brightened and the moon had vanished into the haze.

Monday Gypsy Cob Horse Blogging

Gypsy Horse - Point Reyes  2015

That's how the lady identified the horse. "A rare breed," she said. I was sorry I hadn't any of Tuffy's horse cookies to feed him.

Point Reyes Video

Point Reyes June 2015 Video from Mike Mundy on Vimeo.

So . . . I carried a tripod this time! Alas, the wind was constant, so long exposures for still photography weren't all that practical. I ended up using it exclusively for video.

Speaking of the wind, notice the last shot in the video. Just afterwards I turned towards the waves to take a still photo when I heard a soft thud in back of me. Yes, the little Nikon I've been using for video had been knocked over by the wind, while still on the tripod, and was buried in the sand. The lens refused to retract for a while, but a little prodding at the grains of sand with a Swiss Army knife seemed to do the trick.

Tent, Point Reyes

Tent - Point Reyes  2015

An evening shot, around 7:45 PM. Looks vaguely HDR-ish, but it's not.

Eucalyptus - Point Reyes  2015
Impressive tree. A holdover, I believe, from ranching days. I used a wide-angle lens.
