Journey of a body on this earth


Life at the Cove is Very Fishy! (1 image + 3 image gallery)

Back at Shark Fin Cove again, I thought you might enjoy seeing this rock arch down at the bottom of Shark Cove.  When you stand on the beach you can look through this arch and see the wild winter waves of the Pacific.  The water was coming through this arch frequently so I zoomed in.  The last thing I needed was to be dragged out to sea, and trust me, that happens here on the coast a lot, especially with tourists.  There are rogue waves that come up unexpectedly so if you’re traveling to this area, please don’t taunt Mother Nature!  Okay enough warnings and onto more life at the cove….

When we are atop of Shark Fin Cove, Dave and I were walking around admiring the incredible beauty when we saw two men fishing. They had the longest fishing line we’d ever seen!  If you can imagine, they were standing at the top as you can see in the pictures here and dropping their fishing line all the way down to the ocean!  On the last picture, which is very cropped and zoomed because of my distance to him, you can see that he’s bringing up a fish!  The fish actually ended up dropping off the line because his line broke.  I wonder if he ever got a fish up because with that jagged rock, it would easily cut a line.

Shark Fin Cove at Sunset

I took my camera club down to Shark Fin Cove the other day and we had such fun!  The sunset wasn’t as dramatic as I had hoped but you never know when it comes to the California Coast, especially around these parts.

The first image you see is a long exposure panorama.  I used my 24-120mm lens and five vertical shots stitched in Lightroom to create it.  The second one was 1 shot taken with my 14-24mm lens and the last one was 1 shot with my 24-120mm lens.   * I’m kinda bummed that for some reason these images didn’t come out that clear after posting them here but I’m too tired to deal with it now lol. *

I’m kind of tired today so pardon for the short post.  Hope you all have a great rest of the day!


Shark Fin Cove – Flat Rock

Once in awhile I enjoy trying my hand at textures.  It’s all a work in progress but of course that’s what’s so fun about post processing!  I love puzzles and that’s how I think it is sometimes….figuring out what works best and in what order.  I’m a far cry from figuring out textures, that’s for sure but I do have fun trying.  🙂

Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!
