Old, Old Trucks

Early Mack Truck 2

I have been observing these two trucks for about 8 years now. I met the owner at an old tractor exhibit and asked permission. He was there this morning and showed me the other Mack trucks he has been restoring. Quite an impressive collection.

Pelican in flight

The last month has been very busy getting our house ready to sell. In the meantime, I have been able to sneak out occasionally to snap a few photos. Have taken some good bird shots at Bodega Head.

Today, Bruce Morrison and I headed to Jenner, CA to photograph the harbor seals that laze around at the mouth of the Russian River, eating all the steelhead and salmon that try to make it upstream. If  a human tried that, off with their head!

I was surprised to find many osprey and brown pelicans feasting with the comorants and seals. It must have been a good run.

Exciting Photo Shoot at Ano Nuevo State Park

Alpha Male Elephant Seal

On Monday, Bruce Morrison and I headed out for Ano Nuevo State Park with reservations for a tour of the Elephant Seals. We were the first group and there were mostly adults with cameras.

We were instructed to stay a distance of 25 feet from the animals. Yea, right!

We were being guided through some dunes when an Alpha male started clearing the beach of younger bulls. Many scurried past us and the Alpha disappeared behind the dune. The next thing we knew, he was fighting and pushing a large male up the dunes toward us. A huge fight ensued with the group only about 10-15 ft away. We were scrambling for higher ground and got some great photographs of what went on. Bruce mentioned it was like a C coupon ride at Disneyland. It only lasted for less than 3 minutes, but was very exciting. I am in the process of posting the photos right now. They can be found in the Legacy Photographs

A video will follow soon. Bruce is processing that.

Hope you enjoy.
