The aim of that trip is two-fold. Complete some of my seascapes series, and start a new desert series. In order to achieve that goal, I decided to fly to and from Las Vegas, and do a loop mostly in California.
Some of the main spots I’ll visit:
- Death Valley NP
- Mono Lake
- Yosemite NP
- San Francisco (just a hop)
- Big Sur
- Morro Bay
- Mojave NP
I also have ideas of a few other places I’d like to visit provided enough time.
If I stick to my plans, it should represent about 1,400 miles (2250 km) and more than 25 hours driving non-stop. Should be very interesting, and bring many occasions for great photography.
I am also very excited to bring and use some new gear from Sony and Formatt-Hitech during that trip. The mirrorless A7r camera will allow me to use all of my Canon lenses, as well as a few other lenses that I use for medium format. I’m also planning to bring along my large format camera and some cool B&W, slide and IR film. On the filter side, I will still be using the “regular” and great IRND filters from F-H, as well as their new Firecrest ND16, ultra neutral filter. Can’t wait!!!
