Crashing Tides

Last week, I went for a trip down in San Diego. One of the must see place in my list was this spot. Sunset Cliff Natural Park is quite a popular spot. Some people would come here to see the sea caves (although I have not figured out how to get in those), the view, or just to plainly enjoy the sunset. I assume that its name was derived from being a good spot during sunset.

It is a long stretch of a park. If you want to see and explore the entirety of it, then be prepared for a lot of walking. There were plenty of people sitting around when I went there, and they were waiting for the sun to set.

It was quite enjoyable to sit around and just look at the waves. Some crashes into the rocks harder than the others. It was challenging to capture the waves. A trick that all should know is to set up the camera into a drive mode (which takes multiple shots, its a burst mode pretty much).

Gladly, I always carry around almost all of my lenses. I finally was able to use my telephoto lens to capture the waves closer. It is honestly one of the reasons as to why I got it. To capture the waves without risk of soaking my camera.

Not as close of a shot as I wanted, but granted I am at quite a distance it is still decent. One of the goals is to the beach and shoot the waves closer. I'll give it another try.

There are so many photos from this trip to still be posted. I figured it is only fitting to divide it into multiple post. To choose 5 to 7 pictures from the bunch is an extremely hard task, and I cannot do it. I am too invested into all of the photos to just neglect a handful of them.

I hope you all are having a good start of your week. Let me know what you think of these photos. I love hearing feedbacks!. Until tomorrow!—Claire.

I loved #4 and #5 most, the shades of color of the water and rocks are awesome. I would love to visit San Diego, too. Seems like an eternally warm and sunny city, the ocean is priceless!

Hi Jovana! San Diego is indeed always warm and sunny. There are days where it is chilly but the warm sun balances it out. I hope you do get the chance to visit!

I love rocky shores and I truly miss the ocean. I was born and raised in Hong Kong but now I'm living in Ontario, Canada. We have the Great Lakes here, but they can't compare with the ocean.

Hi Benny! I always see pictures of the lakes out there in Canada and I am very drawn into them. It has been quite some time now that I have been wanting to see Banff and Moraine Lake. Hoping that I will get the chance soon.
