While we’re currently locked down due to the coronavirus pandemic, I’m going through some photos from past trips that never made it onto the blog. I’ve got a lot of random stuff to share!
During a quick work trip to Monterey California in October 2018, I spent one morning taking photos off Monterey pier. There was a nice sunrise with some wonderful orange tones in the sky. I thought this fishing boat, the San Giovanni, made a great subject for a photo. It can be difficult to take a photo of a boat in low light, because the boat will move with the water, so a longer exposure ends up blurred. A combination of higher ISO settings, plus a little luck will often get you there, as it did with this photo.
After taking the photo, I did a little more research on the San Giovanni. It turns out that it’s the last wooden hulled fishing boat sailing from Monterey. The boat dates to 1959, and went through a renovation not long before I took this photo.
