  • Flowers going Wild

    After a rainy winter, spring brings out the colors in the desert-like area that is Antelope Valley. And these flowers don't just grow in the designated nature preserve, they are everywhere. Even on the dirt road lining a field where tractors & farm equipm…

  • The irony

    PG&E -- the local power utility company -- touts their environmental stewardship. At the same time, their "Diablo Canyon" nuclear power plant is producing some of the most toxic and long lived waste known to man. And the nature is flourishing because the…

  • Timelapse of the sunset @ McWay Waterfall

    This was the evening of a pleasant drive along the Pacific Coast Highway / Highway 1. Now I need more practice with the timelapse because the light got a lot dimmer than the camera shows. The auto-exposure seems to compensate for the changing light :-( .…


  • Southern California Backroads & Mountains

    This is along Hwy 33 through the Los Padres mountains, north of Ventura, CA. The area south of Ojai now is in the headlines because wind-driven wildfires are raging there. The situation there is very similar to the fires we have seen in October in Napa &…

  • McWay Waterfall at Sunset along Highway 1

    On my way south along Hwy 1 for a Thanksgiving roadtrip. Approx 10 miles south of here, Hwy 1 still is blocked by a huge landslide, forcing most travelers to make a U-turn to get back north to Monterey instead of continuing south. . IMG 20171119 1646 HD…

  • My first sighting of a Tesla Model 3 in the wild

    On a different shot from the dashcam, it was visible that the license plate was issued in September 2017. Also note that the rear lacks many markings indicating the Model -- usually the Teslas have that on the right, below the taillights. Also curious is…

  • Do not feed ?

    There are signs "Do not feed the birds" but no sign talking about seals. The kid up on the pier threw this seal some of their fish or crab bait. . N70 6528 © Copyright 2017, All rights reserved - Post a link, do not copy or embed. Contact me, if you…

  • The Pacific Coast Highway 1

    Often, and rightfully so, called one of the most scenic roads in the world. It usually hugs the rugged coastline, offering spectacular views of the landscape and sea with the migrating whales, sunsets and occasionally fog. From this angle you can see why…

  • Well-fed

    Despite living between barren rocks, this squirrel 9and its friends) seems to make a good living. As you can see it isn't shy and likely gets food from the tourists. As I got low to take a photo, it approached in expectation of some food -- and left disap…
