it was another day exploring the oregon coast.  i took u.s. highway 101 south towards oregon dunes national recreational area and other spots that had sand dunes.  i stopped at some overlooks along the way to see more of the cliffs, rock formations, and coast.  one of the overlooks was near a lighthouse i'd seen during my first time to oregon though it was under construction this time.  the sand dunes were pretty nice.. i had seen some of them on a previous trip to oregon and got to see more this time.  it looks like i went to the campground a little earlier that afternoon.  perhaps i had to do some work or it started raining or something.  i went back to another spot in the dunes the following day before heading inland.

i woke up at my first campground in california this day.  for lunch, i headed to town for a sub before making my way back toward the coast.  i remember it being nice and warm as i sat outside eating.  it was really great to get to experience some pleasant temperatures after all the cold days i'd been in earlier in the trip.

i made it over to point reyes national seashore late in the afternoon.  i remember visiting there when i first went to california nearly a decade earlier.. it was so amazing to experience what felt like thousands of miles of waves and wind hitting the coast.  i went back on this trip to explore and experience it again.  it was extremely windy near the lighthouse area and somewhere out there i lost the wind screen for my microphone.  when i realized it, i took a few steps back to look for it before deciding it was a lost cause with so much wind.  i drove to and explored parts of the seashore i hadn't seen the first time there.. it was all really beautiful.  it was getting dark so i spent the night in a parking lot and would explore more in the morning.

the last shot with my #ricoh #theta #360 #degree camera.  this image was at the beginning of a time-lapse sequence which was lost at sea (along with a couple of others i had shot recently and not yet downloaded). unfortunately the camera had a plastic tripod mount, which failed over the course of making images a few weeks ago.  i had come up with a couple of ways to rig it and mount it in its current state (as i hadn't heard back if the mount failure was covered under warranty or not), and apparently the waves last night were a little too much as the camera must have fallen off into the gulf of mexico (and from where i was sitting 150ft away it was difficult to tell if the camera was still sitting on top of the pole as it got dark when the sun went down and people walked between me and the camera). i went back this morning for the next low tide and there was no sign of it washing up nor sitting anywhere at the bottom of the surrounding water.  if anyone finds a Ricoh Theta 360 camera in (or near) Indian Rocks Beach, please contact me (or turn it in to the Public Services at City Hall as they have my phone number). although the camera is likely beyond repair, i'd still like a chance to salvage the images if it were to turn up.  the serial number is XL00110415

waking to the sounds of the pacific ocean waves crashing into the rocks and cliff below was nice.  i had breakfast and took some shots of the waves before continuing south to explore the coast.  before stopping to explore a state park, i saw really beautiful rays of sunlight coming through the tunnel of trees that surrounded the pacific coast highway.  at the park, i attempted to fly a radio controlled powered parachute model though only got it in the air for a few seconds before it crashed.. i was having difficulty hand-launching it and when it actually took flight, i think i quickly cut back on the throttle so it wouldn't go too high or far, and it went right into a tree.  it was a bit disappointing that i had yet to have an actual flight (let alone get any photos with it) after having spent so long researching and building it.  i had hoped to have an alternate option to kite aerial photography for when there wasn't enough wind to fly (this was before quadcopter drones were readily available).

after leaving the park, i found more spots along the coast to check out and saw whales in the distance from one of the overlooks.  the coast was really beautiful.. i could've spent much more time there, though was going to my first campground in california that evening.  on the way inland, i took a long, winding road through the hills in sonoma county.  it was quite beautiful and desolate, yet also another fun drive with plenty of steep inclines and descents (and countless curves).. some of the slopes measured 7 or 8 degrees (a 14% or 16% grade). at times the truck was all of a sudden rapidly accelerating down the curves at near 60 mph.. the serene drive could quickly turn into one needing focused attention to keep the truck under control.  near the end, i found a park with a view of lake sonoma where there was a lot of wind, so i grabbed my kite for a quick aerial photography flight.. having launched from a small lookout tower with no room to walk down the kite, i recall it being difficult to bring down with winds pulling so hard.  afterwards, i drove a little further and spent the evening at a campground near cloverdale.

[in california]

it’d be much easier to do the aerial shots with a first person live view of what the camera is seeing or with a preprogrammed fly by gps waypoint system that modern quadcopters have.. not having either, i had to guess composition + direction and try to keep track of the tiny white dot in the sky and trust it’d come back :)

some locations include:

Crystal Beach
Dunedin Causeway
Fred Howard Park
Honeymoon Island State Park
Wall Springs Park
