Fish Ranch - Palo Corona Ranch Carmel California

We’ve been having quite a bit of rain lately and today (Thursday) the clouds were exceptionally good. This gave me an opportunity to try some different things with my new camera, the Canon EOS M5 Mirrorless Camera Kit EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM Lens Kit – Wi-Fi Enabled & Bluetooth.

I’ve been very excited to test this camera which is about one-third the size of my current Canon 6D camera. The M5 is a mirrorless camera which allows it to be much smaller and much lighter and easier to carry around. I was able to photograph Fish Ranch Palo Corona Ranch in Carmel, CA.

I love looking up that hill towards the barn at the top but I have not been able to go up there and visit it yet. Nearly 10,000 acres, where this is located, was purchased in 2002 by the Nature Conservancy and the Big Sir Land Trust from cellular telephone pioneer Craig McCaw. He had purchased the first piece of the ranch in Big Sur in 1996 from the heirs of Stuyvesant Fish. He promised to safeguard the stands of old-growth redwoods. The Nature Conservancy’s goal was to “create a 70-mile-long wildlife corridor from the Carmel River in the north to San Luis Obispo County in the south. “The Fish Ranch has its own storied history. It was the location for the movie adaptation of John Steinbeck’s “Flight,” a story about a fugitive in Big Sur.” — L.A. Times

    1. It’s behind and rip from Crossroads shopping center. I was up at Marlene & John’s house. She called me to tell me the clouds were really good so I took the new camera there and got to test a number of things I’ve wanted to test with it. They have that view from their living room and dining room.

  1. Clouds, beautiful clouds and the scenery is beautiful too! What a wonderful hobby you have chosen.
