    Beautifully captured. You could get lost in the blue.

    Try not to as the road is very narrow and windy ... you'll end up close and personal in the big blue ocean!

    Very good composition on the last image. Closer cropping on the bottom could really underscore the color of the boat as the primary focal point. Kudos.

    Nice shots, I love #4. like 0dBm above I'm an aggressive cropper, I think you could get a dramatically different image from the same capture if you cropped in to focus more on the boats.

    Nam, these are great! I lived a number of years in Marin (Mill Valley) and spent a great deal of time on the coast around Bodega Bay with my cameras. These make me long to be back!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Beautiful picture Dan...is that Mount St Helena in the back?

    0dBm and Blotzphoto, those photos were one of the first I took when I got the Panasonic 7-14, but you are right about the cropping...will have to give a try.

    I live in Sonoma County as well. I am having fun shooting all the beautiful landscapes here in Sonoma County with my new OM-D E-M5.

    sonoma OP:
    Did you use any polarizing filters?

    No, I didn't use any filter...the Panasonic 7-14mm cannot take any filter.

    That farm is not too far from me :) Sonoma's M4/3rd should have an outing together :)
