Muir Woods

(Click here to read part one of Capturing San Francisco with Olympus Camera )

After leaving Battery park we headed to the mystical Muir Woods. The woods are breathtaking and we were so fortunate that not a lot of people were at the National park! It was easy to get shots with no people – which if you’ve taken photos in National Parks you know what a feat this can be. We spent about three hours in Muir which honestly felt like about 30 minutes.

Below is a small gallery of my time in Muir Woods.

lunch was at the fabulous Barrel House Tavern in Sausalito. The barrelhouse sits on the bay so we were greeted with fabulous panoramic views of the San Francisco skyline. Another highlight of lunch was the company – Derrick Story, Victoria Diaz, and Megan C. were my immediate table mates. We shared photography tips and stories over amazing food.

We caught the ferry back to the City, where we passed Alcatraz (left image). Upon returning to the hotel we were treated by the friendly faces of the Olympus Visionaries. The rest of the day was free time so a few of us grabbed cars and headed to treasure island to grab a sunset of the city. I got to meet Nam Ing, another Olympus shooter, and he was kind enough to take a few of us in his car. We shot sunset and then Megan and I grabbed a Lyft back into the city. I headed to China Town for dinner and then walked around the city for a short time before crashing into bed happy but exhausted.

All images shot on an Olympus EM1mkii and a 12-100 PRO zoom.

I loved how quickly the colors changed during this sunset! I was too cold to get any good ones of the city lights going on. It was such a fun shoot though.

Part two of day one coming tomorrow.
