The first blog post of 2023 has the last photos I made in 2022 — in the morning of December 31st, we went for a walk at the beach. It was drizzly and overcast and I didn’t bring the big camera, but as usual, once there some things were too intriguing to not make a photo of them.
Tabletop Reef is a rock structure at the southern end of South Cardiff State Beach/Seaside State Beach. I guess it is one of the places that I visit and photograph most frequently when taking walks at the beach with our dog, Toni. This archive gives you an overview of what it looks like through the seasons and over the years.
A Long Lens at the Beach
Sunday we went for a late afternoon walk at the beach, hoping to make a few photos of birds in flight for my photo club’s monthly “Photo Quest”. Since I’m running this photo quest and came up with the theme, I’d better get a photo for it!
Weight of Summer, Premonition
Last Friday, a storm system brought lightning, thunder and a little bit of rain to San Diego again. This isn’t entirely unusual, but this year’s amount of summer storms that actually reach the coastal areas of the county is higher than what I’ve experienced in the past.
The Bluest Hour, Solana Beach
Long exposure seascapes at a very, very blue hour (three photos), and an bit of an aha moment about the camera position I ended up using for these images.
The First Sunset, Solana Beach
Impressions from a visit to the Solana Beach tide pools for the first sunset of 2020.
