Tuesday I plan to do another 70 mile sunrise drive south Point Lobos State Natural Reserve, south of Monterey. Then some sun rays midday at Carmel City Beach above with our coastline's whitest sand beach thus also most aqua hued water. Fun at ankle depth while the fine fine white sand is to be enjoyed intimately by one's earth creature skin body. That dark area is kelp and seaweed that floats due to air bladder pods. Water temp maybe 52F, so in June wetsuit water .

Feel the.........coooooooolness

Last Thursday sunrise drove the 70 miles south to tiny 4x5 miles Point Lobos State Natural Reserve. Considered the crown jewels of all 280 California state parks. Below image lots of people about famous Weston Beach looking at colorful tidepools and amazing rock formations. In the background is guano stained white Bird Island. At full 6000x4000 pixel APS-C size with my 85mm Sony lens, a 6 frame focus stack blend.




As incredible as the coastline is, the underwater kelp forests and dense colorful marine life is even more so.
