POINT REYES VI, 2017
Of the collection of photographs I made at Point Reyes, I’d have to say this one is my favorite for a few reasons. I used to live in California, and always found that zone of the Pacific a bit scarce of life. There are so few estuaries and marshes along the Pacific Coast where life can really take off. These fingerlets in Drakes Estero at low tide create some beautiful patterns, but also create a habitat for so many species of fish and shellfish to flourish.
The dark reflection at the top of the photograph is of one of Point Reyes’ beautiful coastal mountains, covered in maritime forest, which I had hiked through to get to this location, high up on an adjacent hillside.
