I always have a constant push pull between running on the beach & taking photographs OF the beach, post 9-5. This day, both won out. And, bonus? I got an extra sprint workout in running home for my camera before the sunset faded.
You know why I love living on the Central Coast? The people. The people here are collaborative, not competitive. They love the outdoors. They share thoughts and ideas with one another. It's a symbiotic relationship of creative energy - and I never want to take it for granted.
I had the pleasure of tagging along with photographers & friends whose work is truly inspiring. So alas, beer + friends + photography = Photographer's Happy Hour. Here are a few snippets from the adventure in Montana de Oro.
Our Leadership SLO Day for Manufacturing, Technology & Agriculture really opened my eyes to what San Luis Obispo has right in it's backyard. These photos barely scratch the surface, but they were some of my favorites from the day.
I don't always get out to Morro Bay as often as I could. But every time I look at these photos I A) Think a trip is necessary and B) Crave fish tacos. That order.
A place I fondly call home. So pretty much expect a million more blog posts of Shell Beach (I'll try and restrain myself for everyone's sake)
An amazing local state park akin to the likes of the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland. Also - a geologists dream (or so I'm told).
Ever hiked Reservoir Canyon? If you haven't, take a little time out of your day and make it happen. Off the 101, it's a lesser known gem of a hike. And worth every second with a view of the sister peaks at the top.
Known for its epic sunsets, long stretches of beach, whale sightings, & tasting rooms - Avila Beach is certainly amazing to visit. But for photographers, it's a visual gold mine.
