Avila Bay Morning

Avila Bay is not far from where I live and I need to get out there more often.  I have a photographer friend who calls it “his office”.  I used a little longer exposure to slightly blur the water.

Public and Private

Most people stop to watch the surfers from Maui’s Hookipa Beach Lookout which is fun to do. If, however, you walk around the corner  to the right  there a trail down to lava rocks and the crashing sea.  What I found interesting was this old barbed wire fence that separates the public portion and the adjacent private property.

Montana de Oro Creek

This small creek runs out of the foothills into the ocean at Montana de Oro State Park.  The park is southwest of Los Osos, CA.

Moloaa Beach

One of several isolated beaches on Kauai.  This was taken while sitting in the water to cool off. There were no waves so the camera was safe.

Montana de Oro State Park is a place I go to often.  Always with a camera but also for walking and enjoying.  There are miles of trails and paths with several inaccessible beaches with interesting rock formations.  This is the one I’d really like to get down to.

Death Cloud

I was watching this cloud form and was fascinated by it’s shape.  The title “Death Cloud” jumped into my mind.  Not sure why but maybe from watching too many Star Trek’s when young.
