We were walking along Jericho Beach around suppertime of a recent weekend when the clouds and light performed a summer-afternoon dance for us. I was shooting in every direction and present for your entertainment one marine vessel and two feathered scavengers; nothing you can’t see there every day.
This is the Hector; I’m sure you could look it up somewhere online and find out where it goes and what it carries.
We have eagles around here, and cormorants and loons and great blue herons too, and every kind of duck you can imagine, and they all have their own beauty, and we ignore the gulls mostly, because they’re not big and not rare and not fierce and not colorful. But really, they don’t look bad when they get some help from the sun and clouds.
Photo-weenie note: More samples of the mighty Pentax 50-135 at work. Someday the engineers will build this kind of flexibility and focus and clarity into something you can fit into your pocket; but for now, there are times when there’s no substitute for lugging a kilo of metal and glass around the beach.
