It's all downhill...

...from where I live to the beach where I shot the photos posted last Sunday.

Longtime lookers-in here may recognize this view, which is less than a block from my pad. As you can see, the surf is still high today, even though the storm is past...



There is one very steep hill between my place and the beach. Going down -- beachward -- is not bad, but my legs protested the return trip, which seemed more akin to climbing a wall than a hill.

If you're curious, look at Sunday's photo of the father and son. Today's picture was taken from a spot on the bluff in the background of that image.

While I'm on the subject, I found that someone else shoots in this area (among other locations), and I strongly suggest that you click here to dig the results.

If I was too full of myself, I'd say it was a better camera that makes the difference between my snapshots and what I consider truly excellent photography.

Nuh-uh. It's talent, plain and simple.

Time for another walk....

Nice photos Scrib. It seems like such a relaxing place to just walk and let your mind wander. Man, I need a freakin vacation.

It's the camera. You take some excellent shots. The site you reference definitely has some really good stuff, obviously done with a fine camera wielded by one with ability to use it and a good eye. I always thought your shots were on a par with that.
