Road Trip to California

Loop2014MapI am now one day away from my trip to some of the nicest National and State Parks in the Western United States, with a focus on California.

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!!!

To follow me during my trip, keep an eye on this blog. I’ll also post some behind the scenes images more regularly on my social media streams: Facebook, Google+, Twitter and Instagram (troland00)
