The clear sky tonight removed some of the orange from the picture from the night before. With the cold temps and high winds to clean out any moisture in the air, I got stars tonight instead of cool colors.

Ardea Herodias Herodias

A Great Blue Heron in the San Diego River estuary. Ten years ago, the San Diego River estuary was nasty. Whatever San Diego has done to restore or preserve the estuary, it seems to be working. The birds love it.

Big Rock Day 1

Big Rock on the first day of the swell:

Big Rock Day 2

This is Big Rock the next day with the same swell running. On a day when the youngsters were killing it. When this kid was done surfing he walked up the beach and he was maybe 16.

It's really hard to take bad pictures when the waves are this good, and the guys in the water are surfing like this:

Big Rock Day 1 (first pictures)

Big Rock was doing really well on Saturday. Even though there was a big crowd in the water (along with two photogs in the water), this guy and one other guy were getting all the good waves.

I feel odd calling it a "motor drive" because there's no "motor"...exactly...but I had the camera set to "continuous high" which makes about 6 frames/second and I must have shot 35 pictures of this one wave.
