the lake at Nicasio

When I'm out looking for photographs I tend to travel on the same old road loops. The lake at Nicasio is the most distant point on one of the loops.

This is west Marin County, and it's just north of the Golden Gate Bridge.

We get vast quantities of fog in the area -- fog from the ocean about ten miles away and fog that radiates from moist pasturelands, plus fog that develops, like here, on the surface of the lake.

This is a fun spot on the road loop to stop and frame up compositions.

Killer photo of the lake at Nicasio. Especially when clicked to make big. Stunning!

I flipped my laptop upside down. Not sure which version I like better. :)

Awesome photo set, and Brad is right. The header photo of the lake at Nicasio is totall art photo. If you've got a high-resolution version, particularly a printed version, I'd like to buy a copy.
