Highway 101 Beaches Helpful Links

A note about all the photographs in the "Wave Action" link here and all those under "Hwy 101 North" and "Hwy 101 South" from the main page:
Equipment notes: All were taken with either a Canon Rebel T3i or a Canon 70D. The lens used was almost exclusively the Canon 15-85 EFS lens. This has proven to be a very versatile and very sharp piece of glass. If a zoom lens was used in any pictures, the lens was the Canon 70-200 (f4), a really nice, sharp, relatively long lens.
Camera settings: Almost all photos were taken with the "P" ("Program") setting, usually ISO 100, usually "Auto" color balance, and almost exclusively stopped down 1/3 or 2/3 (unless a polarizing filter was used.)
Web-related settings: It should be noted that all the photos on this blog have been reduced to "low" resolution, for the purpose of maintaining a reasonable "page load" time.
