Approaching Storm...Point Lobos, CA

Posted by
Mike Hall (California, United States) on 21 November 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

A storm cell makes it's way down the coast towards Weston Beach in Point Lobos State Natural Reserve on a Fall afternoon.

Thanks for visiting my photoblog. Though I may not be able to respond to every comment, I do read them all and I appreciate your interest.

@sunstonemaria: Didn't get soaked, but a bit wet as it started raining about fifteen minutes after this shot and the car was a brisk five minute walk away.

This is a beautiful image Mike. What I liked best perhaps is that we had the Reserve to ourselves! Wish we could have photographed a bit longer.

@Don Smith: Thanks Don...I would have liked some more shooting time myself. It was nice to have the place to ourselves.

Awesome! It has been TOO long since I have been to Point Lobos, I'd better get out there!

@Tracy: Thanks Tracy...I was seeing images all over the place but we got cut short by the rain. That approaching cell really dumped on us. The weather after Thanksgiving shows promise so I might have to get back down that way.

So fresh and colourful - the aqua of the water, the chocolate beauty in the rocks, the grey clouds and bright horizon and white foam...I love the lines formed in the rocks here and your perspective perfectly leads (compels really) the eye to move forward and than then, all around! Masterful piece here, Mike ;-) ALL the best - have a great Thanksgiving!!

@Denny Jump Photo: Thanks Denny...All the different tones and colors are a couple of elements that drew me to this composition. Hope you have a great Thanksgiving also.
