[Note: First published earlier today on InMenlo.com: A few great memories from photography explorations in 2013]
Looking back over a year is something many of us do at this holiday season. I’ve enjoyed looking back at 2013, as it appears in my Lightroom catalog of images captured over the year.
I find it sort of amazing that Lightroom reports I’ve taken 7,697 images in 2013. Good grief!

My good friend Doug Kaye and I headed out today to the Marin Headlands – in particular, Battery Mendell up high on the cliffs and, down low, Rodeo Beach itself. I’ve yet to process most of the photos from this walk with Doug – but I did especially like the image above – a couple walking along the cliffs near Battery Mendell.

Doug is helping plan a photo walk at Rodeo Beach after Christmas – details here.
[Update: here are some great shots taken from the photowalk posted over on Google+.]
