Three images from another negative tide outing to the coast – I’ve never been to this spot at the southern end of Sunset Cliffs before, and later learned that it is called “Hidden Beach”. It’s location is not quite as secret as the name would imply though – and by Sunset Cliffs standards, access is relatively easy. (Sunset Cliffs is always in some local news because people fall, get trapped by the tides, etc.)
Here’s the second (color) batch of impressions from yesterday’s evening/sunset outing to Sunset Cliffs. More color long exposure work! Also, I seem to be in a rather vertical mood lately, especially with the wide angle lens… :)
A couple more photos from my recent low tide/negative tide outings to Point Loma, Sunset Cliffs and La Jolla Shores. I liked this arrangement quite a bit, so I compiled it into a collage/triptych — it is available as a print-on-demand in my store: Column Strata Cave Collage. I recommend to print it on canvas.
We’re having a number of days with negative tides at the moment – those only occur in the Winter months. There are a couple of interesting spots along the coast that are worth visiting then, and Sunset Cliffs is one of them. The rocky seafloor there is not often exposed that much and it was fun to walk around and photograph areas that are otherwise submerged
I can get totally absorbed watching waves roll and clouds move. San Diego’s Sunset Cliffs is a very nice spot for that, the height of the cliffs is just right. High enough to stand above it all and not get distracted by too many details, but not too high either, still close enough to see the details of wave movement and spray flying.
