Perspectives on Nature Photography

Two wide views at Morro Bay in the morning

with 18 comments


On November 4th, a couple of hours after I’d looked across the inlet toward the sunrise colors around Morro Rock, we checked out of our hotel and drove over to go walking around the base of the rock, as plenty of other people were doing. Mist hung over Morro Bay, as you see above, while a glance in a different direction revealed waves crashing over a jetty.


(If you’d like to see the Lady Eve in that second place, you can.)

  1. The mist gave you a nice profile.

  2. I especially like the second photo, with the uniformity of the breaking waves,and the uniformity of the broken rocks. The way the tops of the waves are blowing off to the left makes them look even more like a line of cumulus clouds.

    • You’ve made me wonder whether anyone has ever gone to that spot on a day with large cumulus clouds and gotten low enough to make a picture with those clouds appearing adjacent to the white of breaking waves.

  3. The link to the Facebook photo does not work. A Facebook security setting of “Friends”, no doubt.

  4. Alas, I couldn’t see the Lady Eve either. But these two are wonderful, showing two moods of the sea.

    • My challenge was to make it look dramatic even though she wasn’t close enough to have gotten wet, much less thoroughly doused. The hardest part was waiting for large enough waves; the one she’s shown with was the best we encountered.

  6. Beautiful photos. The landscape in the first one is just gorgeous and makes me wanna be there right now.

    • If you can’t make it there now, I hope you’ll get to go in the not-too-distant future.

  7. This might be the first person I’ve seen on your blog. The last one was a reflection in a rabbit’s eye, if I recall. Eve is a brave lady standing there!
