Today was such a glorious day. My older son had a baseball game in Carpinteria today at Cate School. What a phenomenal setting! Up on a hill overlooking the valley as it meets the ocean. As much as I enjoyed the facilities and hanging out to watch and support my son, I was looking forward to the drive home along PCH. It seems that generally Southern California has two seasons: Brown and Green. Green generally lasts about 6 weeks during spring. This year’s rains have brought some beautiful colors and the drive was ripe with green hills and bright yellow flowers with a gorgeous coastline hugging the highway. I pulled over and tried to capture a few different wider views, but what I was seeing I was having difficulty translating. So I moved in closer to the shoreline and decided to try some long exposure against a moss covered rock. I tried ranges of shutter speed to create complete ‘cotton candy’ to slight blur. I like this shot which landed somewhere in the middle (in my opinion).
