Malaga Port

Another beautiful place to spend an evening in Malaga is at the port / marina. It’s a great place to eat, shop and of course do some night photography. The beach, port and old town are all within a 10 minute walk from each other. If you’re planning a trip to Spain make a stop in Malaga, you won’t be disappointed.

Kite Boarding on Banana Beach

Here’s another from my kite boarding series in Israel. I just loved looking at these kite boarders gliding to the water and sky with all those colourful kites overhead.

Morro Bay Marina Glow

About 10 minutes or so after the brilliant sunset around Morro Rock and as the sun continued to fall below the horizon I turned to look south towards the marina. While parts of the sky still had orange and reds sparkling through the clouds around the rock to the south the glow was purple. It really quite amazing…and peaceful.

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.

Weathered Boats & PHOTOGRAPH Issue 4

I spotted these rowboats while walking around the wharf in Monterey Bay. I just loved the colors and weathered look of the larger one.

Night Time at the Monterey Bay Marina

The Monterey Bay Marina and Fisherman’s Wharf was literally in the backyard of the hotel we were staying at. One night I grabbed the tripod and camera gear and headed out for the trek (ok not such a trek…more like a 5 minute walk) to take pictures of the marina at night.
