SPLASH

Newport Beach wave action

 


The Old Man and The Sea

And here he is again!

And is it just me or is there a giant turtle in the foreground?


Two Men

I think there are two men in this photo.

  1. The guy taking pictures from the rocks and . . .
  2. Can you see the profile on the cliff???

Don’t Look Back

When we were walking along the beach at Laguna, we came upon what I think was an engagement shoot. The young woman remained on the beach as the photographer headed past our group for the next set up. I took the opportunity to take a few shots thinking I could use them for some sort of image. I ended up lengthening her dress and moving her arms (she was cold and had her arms loosely folded across her chest) to make a more pleasing image. I’m not sure what she was looking back at, but I am thinking this has potential as the cover of a romantic mystery! 😉

And speaking of romance . . .today is our 47th anniversary! Happy Anniversary to us!


Lone Surfer

This shot was taken at Laguna Beach during our last trip to see our grandbaby. We had just finished lunch, and I looked outside and saw this one solitary young man in the waves.


Just Palms and Ocean

I managed to grab a quick minimalist shot of these palms when we went out to lunch at Laguna on our trip to Southern California.


Beach Blur

Intentional camera movement (moving and/or wiggling the camera while taking a photo) created this photo which I took from Photoshop into Topaz Studio to add a painterly layer at low opacity.


Surfer 2

I think these will be my last surfing photos- but no promises!


Surfer

These shots are from the second day of shooting- and I didn’t have a good spot on the pier. So no closeups- both of these are cropped.

I’m a walkin’ . . .

Yes indeed! Another bit of the beach scene from our last trip to Newport-

Going Down

Here’s another view of Newport Beach at sunset.


Sundown

Hanging around after the sun went down before heading back to the hotel . . .
