Here is another one I took on Big Sur- I wanted to see ho well my newish camera takes close-up macro pics. Pretty good apparently! I have taken some HD video with the same camera but my laptop video card doesn't support HD so I can't view it. I am trying to figure out how to change the video card so I can upgrade it. Anyhow, here is a close-up.

This is what Phoenix International Raceway looks like from the spotter's stand. A friend got us suite tickets and we were able to go up there last year. Very cool!

Here are another couple of shots that show off the cameras capabilities. These were taken from the same position as where I took the Bixby Creek Bridge photo I posted earlier. There is a house out on the point at the mouth of the little bay that the creek empties into, beneath the house is a sea cave. I was probably 500 yards from the cliff pictured. I also included the shot of the bridge. I don't remember if I zoomed in on the bridge or not though. The thing is that these shots were taken with the same camera used to shoot the honeybee on the flower! It is a Sony 32X Extended zoom model # HDR-CX220. I paid around $250 for it.

Oh yeah, and I didn't zoom in all the way on the cave- if I did you couldn't see that it was in a cliff face!

I've seen that cave in a movie or tv show, any idea?

I need a camera other than my old phone.

Some sort of creature molting on the wall out back.

No idea. I do know that the Bixby Creek Bridge is the second most photographed bridge on the West Coast (behind the Golden Gate Bridge). As I said earlier, my grandfather was one of the construction engineers on the project. I have some pictures of when he was working there and on the rest of the Big Sur highway project in the 1930's. One picture I have around here somewhere shows a steam shovel perched on a sheer cliff nibbling the roadway out of the hillside.

This from Wiki:

In popular culture
2010 U.S. Postal Service Express Mail stamp.

The bridge is “one of the most photographed features on the West Coast”[18] due to its pleasing aesthetic design[3] and because of its location along the scenic Central Coast of California, and has frequently been used in automobile commercials. The bridge has become a regional landmark and was used in the opening sequences of the television series Then Came Bronson,the films Play Misty for Me and The Sandpiper. The bridge was also in a first season episode of NBC's show Heroes ("Company Man"), even though the scene was set in Texas. The bridge figures prominently in posters and other publicity material of the Big Sur International Marathon. An outline image of the bridge forms the logo for Central Coast ABC, the area's ABC Television Network affiliate on KSBW-TV (Channel 8.2).

The bridge was commemorated in an Express mail stamp issued on February 3, 2010. The United States Postal Service introduced a $18.30 definitive stamp designed by Carl T. Herrman of North Las Vegas, Nevada. The stamp features a color digital illustration of Bixby Creek Bridge in California, by Dan Cosgrove of Clarendon Hills, Illinois.[19]

That's a cicada. They make a loud screeching noise that is very, very similar to my tinnitus. I typically cannot hear the cicadas until somebody points out that they are "singing".
