Photo of the Day: Beached

More end-of-day photos from Morro Rock in California. I have to admit having watched about 900 hours of Shark Week this week I am looking at these photos with a different eye – apparently there have been several attacks on this very beach, fortunately non fatal and at a different time of year as the marine wildlife migrates through the region. There’s still so much to learn about these animals and their ecosystem, and how to safely share the ocean with them.

A napping elephant seal is a happy elephant seal. From the Elephant Seal Overlook off Hwy 1 (Pacific Coast Highway) in California, where dozens of these beasties haul themselves out to socialize, tan, and nap.

(Please note that I took this with a zoom lens, and didn’t sneak up on any seals, which is both against the rules and dangerous)

 

 

Photo of the Day: La Virgen

Display outside a shop in Inglewood, California (just outside of LAX). I went there to get my rental car for my PCH trip and wanted to stay there and had to stop for this.

You can tell I’m a professional photographer because my finger is in the picture. Another person would edit that out but I am okay with my finger shame.
