Shelter Cove On Film

Some photos from the Thanksgiving outing to Shelter Cove, CA. For those unaware, Shelter Cove is a remote outpost on the Lost Coast of California, a 45 min winding road over a mountain range from the 101 in Humboldt County.

Color photos were snapped with a late-1970s Minolta XD. Arguably the best manual focus camera that Minolta ever made.

And some black and white captured with a Minolta SRT-Super, the Japanese domestic market version of the tank known as the SRT-201. 

Obligatory #firstoftheroll

Yeah, I was a little smitten by the 1957 Cessna 182 anchored to the apron adjacent to the airstrip.
