Started working through a large backlog of photos to post to Flickr from various recent trips. Here's one from an early morning in San Francisco:

Gull and Rock

*Canon EOS 30D, Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS @ 60mm*

*1/1000 @ f/16, ISO 100, -2EV*

Taken a few minutes after this one, which has been pretty popular on Flickr. The time is wrong on the photo, since I had only stepped off the plane about 10 hours before this and forgot to reset my camera's clock (and further forgot to compensate for that in Aperture).

My first morning on the West Coast of the US is about the only time I am ever up and about early enough for dawn photography in the summer. Photographing dawn and sunset in Scotland is easy in the winter - they're only about six hours apart.
