Bolsa Chica After Work

Sitting in an office doing dull, unrewarding work for all the daylight hours is just too much sometimes, so I provide myself a change of scenery once I’m off. Yesterday I drove from my workplace in Irvine down the 55 Freeway to Pacific Coast Highway, and then up the coast to Bolsa Chica Wetlands in Huntington Beach. I was lucky not to have much traffic, as our daylight hours are now quite short. Each time I’ve been there in the late afternoon, there have been photographers on the bridge with really long lenses aimed at the various birds. I felt quite lucky with my little, by comparison, 55-300 zoom to get a few decent shots. The sky was brilliantly colored, the air nice and brisk once again! It was a wonderfully refreshing, completely out-of-the-way, detour home. ~SueBee (photos by SueBee)

    Only big show offs have more than 300mm of zoom or very strong people. I can’t hold a big lens up any more. Nice results from your ‘little’ zoom.

      Thank you 🙂 I was pointing at the right place at the right time, and luckily had the right setting already in place!! That’s always such a nice feeling.

    Beautiful! Love the shot of the heron landing! The light is gorgeous and you managed to get him nice and sharp. Well done!

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
