A Couple New Pics

As I've mentioned recently, summer isn't exactly peak season for landscape photography here in So Cal. The beaches are packed and the hills are dead. But in my Landscape Photography Class in Irvine this May, we were lucky enough to get a pretty decent sky and empty beach for the field shoot.

The tide was very high that day and the sand was littered with seaweed and other debris, but in between helping students with their manual metering and filter use, I was able to get a few decent shots. I picked the two "cleanest" compositions to share with you here.

I'm really looking forward to fall. That's when the skies start to show some color again and the beaches clear out.
