    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!

    Fire and Fog

    This was shot through a veil of fog, which alters the lighting and colors somewhat. The fog does however, allow one to zoom in with a 500mm telephoto without burning the crap out of your eyes!

    S.U.P.-er Sunset

    Talk about a front row view!


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

    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

    Friends of Mike

    Our neighbor, Mike, got a special treat when a pod of dolphins swam directly under his surfboard. Mike said that one of them rolled onto its belly to get a better look. 

    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.

    Seal Team of One

    Dolphins, Whales and Seals, oh my!

    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.
