..took this while i was down by Crescent Bay in Laguna Beach.. there was a spot that looked very, very promising, but before reaching that, i had to traverse through the beach, and up some slippery rocks with some waves crashing up because of high tide while wearing flip flops and lugging several pounds of gear.. well, that didn’t end well, i ended up missing a step and slipped.. my cam was spared, but my shin & knee wasn’t.. at least i got some good ones.. lol.. i’ll try returning for some more shots later..

..the good thing with being the driver on a road trip is that you get to choose when and where to stop.. well, since i was the driver, i get to do that.. and that’s exactly what i did.. that’s why it took us almost a week to get to San Francisco and back.. here’s one of the first stops, somewhere around the Gaviota State Park..

McWay Falls

McWay Falls
..i had to hike a bit while wearing flip flops just to get to see this one, no regrets here.. 🙂
McWay Falls is an 80 foot waterfall located in Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park that flows year-round. Like Alamere Falls, this waterfall is one of only two in the region that are close enough to the ocean to be referred as “tidefalls”. It is located on McWay Creek.
Although it can be viewed via a trail from above, the beach and scenic cove below is difficult to access by land, however, it could be easily reached by boat. Even with this possibility, it is not recommended that people visit the beach as a safety precaution due to crumbling cliffs and environmental reasons.

..when you started shooting, you must’ve seen some stunning images of hummingbirds and wanted to capture one yourself.. but if there aren’t any of them around you, well, tough luck.. or if there were, chances are, you don’t have the right lens on, or were too late pressing the shutter.. because they’re really FAST! ..well, it definitely wasn’t easy shooting this hummingbird, but i’m glad i got a decent shot.. 🙂
