I stopped by Crissy Field near the Golden Gate Bridge on Tuesday to check out the effects of the recent 58,000 gallon bunker-oil spill, but fortunately, from what I could see, this particular area escaped major damage...   Other areas within the bay, and areas as far north as Point Reyes have received globs of oil, plus a sheen of oil over the general area...   Johnson's Oyster Farm at Point Reyes is expecting to be hit with a heavy financial loss -- nobody likes oysters that taste like bunker-oil...

Yes of course even in France we've heard about the oil spill in SF. Glad it didn't get here, it's so wonderful to see these birds in a pristine environment. The sand bank looks so clean.

Don your photos are beautiful, why don't you go to a larger format?

I arrived here through Webpix and Pod's blog in Sydney. CHeers

Good pictures of a sad situation. I hear its very slowly getting cleaned. Its been so devestating to the fishing and crabbing business.
