I almost feel guilty that we’re having all this great weather in January. We really need the rain, but I am going to enjoy this weather for as long as it lasts. Here’s how we spent our day today…
Just a few images from my evening at the beach in Carpinteria. Enjoy!
I sure do feel lucky to live in Southern California. Tonight around sunset I headed out to the beach and found it fairly well packed with walkers, surfers, runners, families, and pooches. So, I was climbing on these rocks that are accessible at low tide and had kids climbing all around me. I figured my camera or camera bag was going in because the waves were crashing around us and they were really have a lot of fun jumping around. Gratefully, I remained dry tonight and was able to catch a few shots of the setting sun.
Well, it’s that time of year again. Yeah, it’s the end of 2013, who knew it would roll around so quickly?! This year, I wanted to take a moment to reflect. Luckily, Rachel and I created this box we call the Box of Awesome, which contains all of the highlights for the year. On January 1st, we will open the box and look back on all that we did and experienced. I’m so excited for that!
So, for this blog, I’m really focusing on highlights from a photography standpoint. I’m excited by all the trips we took this year, but one in particular stands out above all the rest. And that one was the John Muir Trail. I carried about eight pounds of camera gear on that trek and I’m fairly happy with the results. We published a book on Blurb and I have several items donning images from that trip for sale both at Zazzle and FineArtAmerica.
However, what I’ve done for this blog post is select my favorite image from each month of the year. There is one exception, in that in October, I didn’t take any photographs at all, so I’ve filled that slot with an image from the trail that we finished in September. Everything else was taken in the month mentioned.
Hopefully, you enjoyed these images as much as I enjoyed taking them. I realize 2013 isn’t quite over, so if I happen to shoot something in December that I like better than the full moon rising, I’ll be sure to update this post.
