Point Lobos State Natural Reserve

sunflare
happy the rainy December has been replaced with a sunny (and warmer)  January

I know you’re supposed to avoid sun flares in photos, but I think these are cool–this one looks like a UFO
longview
this is Point Lobos–it’s the closest state park to our house (10 miles away) though we’ve neglected it since we moved out here-after a great 6-mile hike today, I think we’ll put this one in the regular rotation
heron
a white heron–still waiting to spot the elusive California condor
bench
okay, here’s what I want for the bench design–a bird in flight at the top and then a couple of sexy otters reclining at the bottom, only I want the otters to look like little fat polar bears, and I want them eating cookies–also, it should look like a sixth grader used a screwdriver to create the images

hey, Murray, pull my flipper
comeon
yup
palmprint
someone left a handprint on the sky
helicopter
douchebag on the way to his weekend place in Big Sur OR crew searching for dumbass tourist who fell into the ocean (we saw a number of “special” people who hopped over the trail markers to climb out on rocks or down to the water–these are the people we hear about every couple of weeks who get swept out to the ocean because they don’t realize how strong and unpredictable the waves are out here)
whale
you have to look closely, but just to the right of center you’ll see the shadow and water spout of a whale
bird

sparkles
I loved the way the silhouettes of this family looked against the blue water–thanks to the sparkles of sunshine, this turned into a much cooler photo

    You live in a very pretty area. I really like the picture of the coast with rocks and mountains in the distance.
