I've attempted to take a shot here multiple times and I finally lucked out. What this photo doesn't show is the millions of flies that love to hang out here in the evening. They're friendly for the most part, and beside, it was worth the sacrifice.
I enjoy waking up before the sun comes out. It still feels like night time, but it's more peaceful. It's a time for myself.
I stopped at this spot the evening before and, disappointingly, it was overcast. A cute elderly couple walked up and said "You should have seen it last night! ...but don't worry, you're a young man. I'm sure you'll get another opportunity." I went there the next night and lucked out. Coincidentally, I bumped into the same couple again.
Every time I drive to Coronado, I see a running path that goes underneath the bridge. I finally decided to go and check it out. It's pretty neat.
Waking up before the sun has it's perks.
Saying a prayer before dawn patrol surf
An explosion onto the cliffs of Ocean Beach
The moon was eerily clear this evening.
It was a beautiful orange sky. I lucked out having the camera in the car as I drove past this view.
I went on my first surf/camp trip up the California coast back in 2014. Point Mugu as the first spot we stopped at. It was beautiful, empty, and the perfect start to what ended up being the best trip.
Caught the fog just before dawn patrol at Ocean Beach Pier, San Diego. It was a beautiful morning.
It was mid-day, but this is definitely what it felt like being out there.
Some of the only life that we found.
The water was calm, sound seemed to be muted, and the smell was horrid. I was surprised to find kayakers in the water.
It was fascinating that the most energy and life present in the Salton Sea was found in the sky.
