Writing with Light

Morro Rock Sunset

On our way to Santa Barbara we stopped for the night in Morro Bay. We arrived in Morro Bay later then we had anticipated and one of the things on my photo bucket list was photographing Morro Rock at sunset. Once we checked into our hotel I dumped my bags (and my husband)…sorry honey (he was tired anyway) and I headed down to the marina.

Morro Rock is located just offshore of Morro Bay and is a 581 foot volcanic plug (according to Wikipedia A volcanic plug, also called a volcanic neck or lava neck, is a volcanic landform created when magma hardens within a vent on an active volcano.)

Anyway I made it to the marina, setup my tripod and camera just in time for one of the most incredible, fiery sunsets I’ve ever seen.

  15. Very beautiful picture for your Edith day in France.
    I don’t know if this tradition exist in USA but in France each day is dedicated to one firstname in relation with a saint.
    Have a great day.

    Edith, you tell us to enlarge the photo and yes, it really does look even better (pretty fabulous without enlarging though). I’d never heard of a volcanic plug. Interesting! The colors of that sunset are amazing (did your husband regret missing it?)

  27. The fiery colors harmonize through time with the rock’s volcanic origin.
