Surfer Girl – Monochrome Madness

I did end up asking this girl if I could take her photo but that was after I took this LOL.  It did feel a bit odd sneaking up behind her.  Taking photos of people is not something that I get excited about, but once in awhile I’ll give it a whirl….and then I remember why I like landscapes, macros and architecture so much haha.

Pigeon Point Lighthouse

Yesterday hubby took me on a drive down our beautiful California Coast from San Francisco to Santa Cruz.   Even though we can get crab sandwiches here, he kept saying he had a hankerin’ for a crab sandwich.  At first we weren’t sure we were going to go because the fog was kind of heavy, but it started lifting around 10:30 and I couldn’t believe the glorious day we had!   If you’ve never been along the California Coast, I would highly suggest this drive if you’re in the area.  Here’s a little map showing you the route.  We took Highway 1 along the coast which is probably about two hours+ even though it really isn’t that far.  The drive is filled with beautiful jagged coastline, beautiful hills, and also pristine beaches.

One of the places we stopped at was Pigeon Point Lighthouse first lit November 15, 1872.   I brought my tripod, so I took three exposures of the lighthouse and created an HDR image which you can see below.  You can click on it to view it in a larger format.  Here’s more information on the lighthouse in case you’re interested!  http://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=533

It was a glorious day!  Oh and by the way, we had crab cakes instead.  🙂
