Tuesday Muse

It's probably more than obvious that I like taking photos with lots of color.   I also enjoy the chance to take photos with more subtle colors that are easily found on an overcast day at the coast.   It challenges me because it can be hard to capture what I'm seeing and feeling.   There is a mist in the air on those days, the smell of the ocean, the sounds of the waves and seagulls, and the feeling of walking on the sand while looking for simple treasures.   

I am still going through my Cambria photos from Sunday to work with the Lightroom settings and see what I can create from the monochrome shots.   This one has a little more color and shows the beauty of the area.   It's not very far up the road from Morro Bay but it's very different with rock formations out in the water.   I wish I could share all the sounds and smells, but this will have to do for my muse of the day.    And you get extra points if you can spot the kayaker.

this is a gorgeous photo-I did spot the delicate yellow of the kayak, and my Mom swam in Morro Bay when she lived in that area as a young woman (early 40's) and we visited here together when I was 20, fond memories from your TMuse photo.

Nice... and you could share the sounds with a nice short video. I think we would all enjoy that. :)))

Yep, Diane is right-we all would enjoy a video of the sounds! I found the kayaker and I have a strong urge to take a road trip every time you post coastal photos.

Wonderful photo of the ocean. I did spot the Kayaker (who goes out in a kayak in choppy water like that).

Beautiful capture Denise.

Wonderful photo, once again. I spotted the kayak in a spot of yellow.

Oh, so lovely! You did a great job capturing the motion of the water. I would be fun to kayak out there (I think!)
