Wave Watchin'

Been "off the grid", at least blog-wise, for a few weeks...
Last Sunday was one of those once or twice a year "big wave" days down at the coast, so we decided to make a trip down there to see what was going on. The waves were pretty spectacular, but also very rough and broken up due to the strong winds, so we couldn't really see those big, glassy smooth breakers that are really photogenic.  Not too good for surfing either, apparently... we didn't see anyone even attempting that.
All in all though, a beautiful day for a walk on the beach and enjoying the salt spray. (Had to clean the residue off my lens and my sunglasses when I got home.) I admit I didn't notice the pelican casually cruising above the action when I was shooting this one.

You got some nice green in those waves. Nice to see you around.

I moved my website to http://geogypsytraveler.com
And bought a Nikon D5100. Leave in less than two weeks for the canyon. Live is good! Hope all is well with you.

What calming beauty even in the power of the force captured in still form...lovely as always!
