  • "Bikes & Bean Clams"

    A particularly prolific season for Bean Clams this year. (Still, kinda uncool to ride bikes through them, eh?)

    Six Pack
    The Blue & The Gold
    "Sandy & The Clams"

    Sounds like a good name for a band, eh? That's a sand crab catching micro-organisms with the its antennae, and a few "Bean Clams" nestled in the depression caused by the crab.

    Blue Lace

    Receding ripple in the shallow water at low tide on Mission Beach, Ca.

    Cliffs of Dover

    Okay, so they're not white cliffs. Just the marks left by a receding tide on a flat beach in Mission Beach, Ca.

    Feeding Sandcrab

    Most of the sandcrab is buried, with just its antennae-like parts straining seawater in search of microscopic critters to eat.

    Late-season Sandcrabs
    Banded Sunset

    Sometimes it doesn't pay to be the only one in the crowd with toast!

    Flaming Fall Sunset
    Photo Bomb!
    Wind Powered!

    Lucky timing led to this improbable shot.

    Carrot Top

    The stratified atmosphere will alter the true lighting and coloration of the sun into some amazing combinations!

    Surf School

    Beginner being shown the ropes in Mission Beach!

    "Blood Sand"

    Spooky Sunset

    Sea Monster

    Watching kids experience seafoam for the first time always puts a smile on your face.

    S.U.P.-er Sunset

    Talk about a front row view!

    Surfing Whales!

    Who knew that whales can surf? These two smallish California Gray Whales taking a break from the long trek back to Alaska.

    "2 Bits, 4 Bits, 6 Bits, A Dollar!"

    Sand Dollar in the shallows at low tide in Mission Beach.

    Scrambled Flash

    Right after a fog bank blew through, this beautiful sunset appeared!

    Whale of a Tail!

    California Gray Whale shows it stuff, just outside the surf zone in Mission Beach

    Clam Field

    A patch of baby clams at low tide in Mission Beach, Ca.

    Full Quiver

    He came prepared, just in case he didn't like the feel of one board, he had options...

    Where's the Beach?

    Not a good day to spread your blanket on the sand...

    Diving for Dinner!

    Pelican diving on an unfortunate meal.

    "Sand Quilt"

    Interesting textures revealed on the beach at low tide in Mission Beach

    Dolphins playing in the surf in Mission Beach. Many mornings, between sun-up and about 9 AM, you will see pods of dolphins getting frisky in the surf here.

    Ringed Sunset

    This is what passes for Winter in San Diego. January 8, 2017

    Inverted Flash

    As the sun sets through a stratified atmosphere, most any color arrangement is possible.

    Scaled Down Coastline

    Dolphins, Whales and Seals, oh my!


    Low tide textures

    Nature's Cotton Candy

    This was an amazing sight! The high wind all day was creating seafoam which was being driven onto the beach by the wind. At sunset, the clouds overhead turned bright pink which was reflected in the seafoam and "white water". The color in this photograph has not been altered in anyway. It was THAT magical! 

    Stormy Touch & Goes

    Navy Raptors doing touch and go 'round robin off of ship about 3 miles from shore in Mission Beach.

    "What we're going to do is take your toast and divide it up equally amongst those who don't have any, okay?"

    Who Da Boss?

    Establishing who is in charge at the beach...and just about everywhere else.

    Special Moment

    This is how it's done!

    Spoiler Alert! No Volleyball today.

    These kids had the whole beach to choose from...so they dig a huge hole in the middle of our volleyball court.

    Happy Surf!

    Even the simplest things can bring a smile when you're at the beach.

    So Many Textures!

    Land-Sea-Air, so many textures captured in this photo! Will make a beautiful large print!
