Augustus and the pacific Marine Layer, Malibu Ca

View large on black


Well, I had some free time today and a computer handy... so I stitched the Pano together from my previous image.

I hang out up here a lot in the gloomy months of summer. I usually arrive in darkness amongst the scurrying rabbits and owls and find a nice spot to watch the sun rise over the clouds with my girl. But she's sleeping in today... inside the clouds. Far out, in the distance below the cloud base is Catalina island and the Long beach harbor. To the left just beyond the mountain tops is Topanga Canyon and Santa Monica directly behind that. And somewhere below that beautiful marine layer is the Pacific ocean and the PCH cloaked in fog and gloom.... It's fun driving back down into it... like a ride at an amusement park. Minus the old creepy carnie guy who looks like some character in a rob zombie film.

Don't get me wrong, I see lots of creatures up here. Just a few weeks back I saw a fairly large mountain lion cross the road directly in front of my car. Ugggg . That'll wake ya up in the mornin. He was in a hurry, so i didn't ask for his name. Any who.... full Corn moon on Monday..... means, all work and no play makes jack a dull boy. So farewell and godspeed.
