Surfing in Half Moon Bay.

I stopped in Half Moon Bay yesterday on my way home from San Francisco and photographed some surfers.

All shot on a Nikon D300 with a AF-s 80-200 f/2.8.

I don't too many "still life" subjects, but I took some time the other day and photographed the ocean at sunset near Lover's Point.

Shot on a Nikon D300 on a tripod, about 4-second exposures triggered by a cable release.
