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.
The day was cloudy because of the coastal fog, with subdued colors overall, and brilliant flashes of many of the flowers in bloom.
