2009.050 . Seaside Wildflowers
Morning walk along the cliffs north of La Jolla Cove. These wildflowers are just down the road from the cave. I had a tax appointment at 7:30 am, got done around 8:00 am with some "homework" of finding things that I had forgotten. Decided to take a little walk before heading home to grade exams. Took lots of photos, many of which I've posted here on Flickr. Finished grading before lunch. Took a rare afternoon nap, then headed over to the college for band rehearsal. Thursdays almost seem like a day of rest. It won't last. My next class will meet on MTWTh and it starts in just a few weeks.
There are two photographers in the background here, on a little peninsula beyond the flowers and in front of the water, waves, and mist that are barely visible in the background. They're using huge lenses to take pictures of pelicans basking in the morning sunlight. This is one of those days when I dislike photo-a-day projects, because I have too many beautiful scenes to share. Quite a contrast from the more typical days lately, when I've taken late-night shots in a hurry just before midnight and just to get something to post.
