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.
Whale watching on Valentine’s Day found a few whales and oodles of dolphins. Unfortunately, none of my pictures really did the dolphins any credit. I never seemed to get one that caught their energy and spirit. Still, I want to post something . . . this was taken as I stood at the front of the boat, watching the dolphins leap and turn in the water. This guy is the pin-up for that day!
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 . . .
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.
Another view of the coastline at Montana de Oro State Park, near Morro Bay, California. Tide was heading out.
