My name is Derrell McCain. I’m a retired teacher living in Stockton, California. Retirement has given me an opportunity to change careers. Now I’m pursuing a life long hobby as a career: outdoor photography. My intent is to post travel notes about where I take these pictures. My equipment includes a Nikon D200, a D300s, and a VW Eurovan to roam around Northern California to seek out great scenic spots to photograph. Photography is a different way of practicing meditation for me. My favorite spots include the Eastern Sierra along US Scenic Highway 395, Pacific Coast Highway and The Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. Always appreciate comments, thoughts and recommendations of scenic spots to explore and to take pictures of. If you would like to see these images and more, click on the link below:

please continue ! I love your photos …they show you are a sensitive person and they remind me of the beautiful American landscape I appreciated so much during my stay
I am retired too and my hobby is painting …
Love Michèle Piot
Derrell thanks for sharing these. My favourite place to visit in the US all captured by your camera. I love Yosemite and the redwood forrests all around the area. Hope to be back soon
It`s a really great blog you run and I always like to visit it.
All the best and thank you very much for following my blog.

I hope one day I will be able to tag along with you to learn how to take those beautiful pictures. Well, maybe a few more years until I can retire. Thanks.
Looks like you’re really enjoying your new retirement job, Derrell! Enjoyed the trip through several of my old stomping grounds!
Amazing pictures. I will have to Google some of these places.
Incredible work, Derrell. Looking at the wonderful work you have on display here just may have restored my passion for returning to what brought me great joy a few years. Pressing issues that have limited my involvement are no more, so I’m moving forward as of this post. Thanks for the inspiration.
Thanks for your comments. I really appreciate them. Good luck with your photography.
Derrell, as always great pictures. Thanks for sharing, Oscar

My backyard is full of spring time WEEDS! Oy, what a difference. Thanks for sharing your beaudacious pix!!!
My pleasure, Oscar. Thanks for the comment. Maybe the weeds will create a meadow in your backyard.
I always admire people love doing photography to our mother nature. Love those photo, keep clicking, keep safe and all the best.
My name’s Kaz, friend of you in FB. I love traveling, but with a cheap and easy camera, now iPhone instead of it. One of my great memories in US is driving along #395. Anyway, let me explore your site first. Thanks.
Thanks. Yes, the CA HWY 395 is a great scenic route along the Eastern Sierra.
