Sunset Morro Bay Harbor

I hope everyone had a lovely Holiday week-end.  Our’s was really nice.

This was our sunset Saturday evening in Morro Bay, CA. That’s Morro Rock a 581ft Volcanic Plug at the entrance to Morro Bay Harbor.

A volcanic plug is a remnant volcanic neck.  There are 13 volcanic intrusive units that form these plugs,lava domes, and sheetlike intrusions from Morro Rock to Islay Hill 18 miles southeast.  Wikipedia has more information about the rock here.  It sure is pretty in the evening with good light and color.

Thanks everyone for the lovely comments, and well wishes for our Anniversary! We appreciate everyone of  them.

I’m beginning to get caught up with emails, and blogs.

Sunset Martin’s Beach

I had the pleasure of joining a favorite Meet-Up group at Martin’s Beach near Half Moon Bay Saturday evening. The waves were amazing. They crashed against the rocks with fantastic booms, and they made cracking sounds as they came rushing toward the shore. I’d never heard that before. It was like ice cracking. Have you heard that sound in the ocean before?
The waves were higher than I expected;  I got soaked up to mid calf. My high top hiking boots, socks, long underwear and pants were soaked.
I took off my boots and socks and spent the rest of the shoot barefoot. I should have taken my Wellies! I was quick to get my camera/tripod rig up above my knees more than once during our time here. 🙂

The atmosphere was incredible while we were there. When we arrived the sun was hidden behind thick clouds, but trying so hard to burn a hole through them, then the fog rolled in, bringing more wind, and a light rain of sand and spray. It was take a shot, clean the lens, cover the camera, and lens, take a shot, clean the lens over and over again.  Then about 20 minutes later the fog mostly cleared out leaving a thin layer of damp and mist in the air.

This was taken right before the sun set completely. I was hoping for more color, but I won’t complain. It was beautiful, and really nice to hang out with friends I hadn’t seen in awhile.

I got my tripod in the shower and cleaned off straight-away, but I’m off now to clean my filter, lens, and probably my sensor since I have more spots of dust I’m cloning out than I like.

I hope you’re all having a lovely Sunday!
