Pictures of the week – 28 November 2009

Sunday, November 29th, 2009

I’m in San Diego for a bit of R&R. It rained yesterday – lots of big puffy clouds – and I happened to be in La Jolla for sunset. Here are three shots, all taken within a half-hour of each other near the children’s pool, now better known for the harbor seals – and law suits – that hang out there.

About 10 minutes before sunset.

Looking east and north. The sun’s setting behind me; the orange light shimmering on the water is bouncing off the clouds.

Otto and I made it to the beach for sunset for the first time in many many months. I paid for it the next day, but not too badly and oh, it was worth it.

This is a shot taken at Fort Funston, the southernmost coast side of San Francisco, aka Dog Heaven. The area’s one gigantic canine playground, with sand and birds and cliffs and seaweed and smelly rotting stuff and lots of other happy dogs and dog-happy people. Otto, busy sniffing something nearby, passed on participating.

Waiting for sunset

Waiting for sunset

From my Flickr page, the 365project.
While the rest of the country freezes or floods, in California we sit 
in springtime sun trying not to think about the drought and the fires
coming our way.
