Photography in Paradise

peeking from behind the sensor

I dearly love this time of the year here in San Diego when the winter tides are exceptionally low in the afternoons and I can look forward to making some images I desire of the beach and the Torrey Pines yellow/orange stained soil bluff. On top of the bluff resides the Torrey pine trees. Named after the botanist John Torrey, who identified the rarest conifer in the western hemisphere.
This is not about the famous trees but the long sandy beach below them. The afternoon lighting is wonderful in illuminating the warm colors of the cliff and leaving shadows in the sand and around the rocks. Tide pools reflect the orange and yellow cliff and blue sky creating a painters pallet. There are so many image opportunities here at this time of the year it seems impossible to determine which one I like the most. It becomes an over load on my visual senses.

See which one you like and let me know what you think.
