A few months ago, a 4-day trip to Morro Bay. Here, a sunset from Montana de Oro State Park overlooking the coastline and the town of Morro Bay. It was a great way to end a short and pleasant getaway.

I have been out of touch with a lot of my “real” and “normal” life because I have had cataract surgery in both eyes these past several weeks. It rather limited anything visual, but now I can see and do things without my glasses even though parts of the world are blurry. My eyes are certainly sharper than they have been in ages, colors are brighter, and in a few weeks I can get checked for new specs. Meanwhile, I have done some painting, and now, some post processing of images I took awhile ago. This is from a restaurant we ate at several weeks ago whilst up in the Morro Bay area of California. I would love to have this as my own garden!
I plan to find some photos I took in the last 6 months and re-edit them with my “new” eyes. It will be interesting to see if my editing has changed at all as far as vividness of color. This photo was vivid in and of itself and unedited prior to surgery, so no idea what is going to happen!
Taken a bit before sundown. The clouds were beautiful that night. This is a 5-image HDR. I think I took this in the street above the Embarcadero. If I had waited until after 7 pm, I would have been able to get the Rock with the sun setting behind it. Instead, we went out for dinner . . .
I took a whole bunch of pictures of this guy. He is absolutely magnificent! The cepphus colomba is a member of the auk family, and lives in little dugouts in the cliffs along the California coast. How can you not fall in love?
The beach north of Morro Rock is wide, flat, expansive, and popular. The late afternoon found the beach still filled with families and kids playing in the water. Definitely a great beach!
The Bluff Trail along the coast in Montana de Oro State Park provides breathtaking views of the sea below, from hidden coves, to vast expanses of dramatic cliffs and rock formations.
Do you remember chasing butterflies when you were a kid? They were hard to catch then, and hard to do so with a camera.
Another view of the coastline at Montana de Oro State Park, near Morro Bay, California. Tide was heading out.
