Happy 2014!

_MG_4208-2A Happy New Year to you! What a year it has been and I wish I had been more diligent with documenting it on this blog. Nonetheless, it's a new year and I have much to do.

Here's the first post for 2014, and this is a photo I took this morning on the way to Big Sur. I opted to stay in for New Year's Eve to get up extra early at 4AM and head down the coast to Big Sur.

It was such a treat because the stars were still out and I was able to try out long exposures with my camera on a tripod. I've never photographed stars before and it was so wonderful to see it come out!

We spent about 6 hours in Big Sur photographing various spots and enjoying a lunch. What a great way to start 2014!
