Last summer we visited Bodega Bay in California: such a quaint little picturesque seaside town, but who knew the weather would be worse than a British summer? We braved the pacific fog – in any case, it suited me fine and made for some nice lighting – taking lots of windswept walks along the deserted beaches and sampling the various clam chowder outlets. The sombre, brooding tone of these photographs belies the happy memories I have of this place. Perhaps next time we visit there’ll be blue skies.

I hope you got to see the Oregon coastal beauty–or will one day in sunshine or rain!
This group succeeds wonderfully at eliciting a mood of coastal darkness, stormy seas, wind and being swept away. Well not quite.
Lovely shots! I heart bleak.
yes, me too!
I love these. Six, seven and nine especially, but also how they work as a set. Wonderful.
thanks Chris I loved it there – would love to return some day!
Thanks Chris. I love a bit of bleakness!
