You might ask how I'm getting these aerial shots? It is not from having found a really good set of mud resistant stilts. Where Arcata and Humboldt Bays meet - there are two islands. A series of three bridges along California State Highway 255 connect these islands - and I am on the western most of those bridges. Tomorrow - I run with my tripod to the other side...

I just don´t get the whole oyster thing.I grew up eating shellfish and don´t rate the oyster as the best tasting of them especially when swallowed raw !! Give me a good portion of cockles anyday. oh yes,by the way.. Nice shot Stephen !!

Yeah this viewpoint certainly does create the impression of you hanging out of a chopper! It looks a very quiet and possibly secluded place.
