Yesterday a friend and I headed out to the Malibu Lagoon State Beach only to find if full. That is to be expected on a beautiful and cool California summer day! So, we continued south to the Santa Monica Pier, to wander around and to do some photography. I found this guy swimming around, snarfing up fish. Luckily I had autofocus on, and multiple exposure set on fast! I got all of these in about 20 seconds before he / she vanished underwater. Click on the first image to scroll through them.
I brought two cameras for our trip to the Carpinteria Bluffs above the Pacific Ocean. One was the Nikon V3, and the other the Trip 35. This is from the Trip, and it did a pretty good job! There really is something about film that digital cannot replicate.
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!
Another view of the coastline at Montana de Oro State Park, near Morro Bay, California. Tide was heading out.
Up and down the coast, cormorants may be found perching on various rocks, hanging out until they decide to go out for dinner.
Every now and again it doesn’t hurt to look back a few years . . .
