A photo from an evening outing to La Jolla’s Hospital Point. The sunset was rather disappointing, but the mood at the blue hour was nice.
The bluffs of Scripps Coastal Preserve are a small pocket of undeveloped coastal mesa just south and above Black’s Beach (south Torrey Pines State Beach).
After the heavy rains in January, a lot of foam built up on the coast. We went to South Cardiff State Beach for a walk with our dog Toni and it almost looked like it had snowed at the beach.
Two coyotes in morning light at Lake Hodges. I also liked the soft colors in the landscape as it reawakens with first signs of fresh green after some winter rains.
A winter scene from Palomar Mountain on Christmas Day. We drove around to play in the snow – just like everybody else… 😉
After the morning stop at Mono Lake we continued further north on Highway 395. We hiked a bit at Leavitt Meadows and then drove up Sonora Pass Road. On the way back we had late lunch in Bridgeport and then briefly stopped at Dunderberg Meadows again – I was hoping to get better photos of the fall colored Aspens, backlit while the sun was still higher. The sun was a bit too low for that already actually.
We stopped at the Mono Lake Tufa State Natural Reserve on the sixth day of our Eastern Sierra Trip. The water was really calm that morning as the wind hadn’t picked up yet.
The clouds that began to move in towards the end of our Red Cones hike looked promising so we went out for sunset. I had fond memories of Dunderberg Meadows and the colorful Aspen trees there. I was hoping to be able to combine them with a colorful sunset!
