Sea, Sky, & The Cardiff Kook

by telephoto.pro

These pics were done today with the exception of the bottom photo of “The Cardiff Kook” statue. I put its title in quotes because I don’t think it’s the official name of the memorial to the community’s beach culture, but it’s the one that for now has seemingly stuck. It was taken from the driver’s window of my van as I drove off after being stopped at the traffic signal on PCH.

The others were all today. I liked the sky after noticing the distant hill clearly visible to the north, which I at first thought might be Dana Point but now expect it to be the hills of Camp Pendleton jutting up above the horizon. Usually they are invisible or much more hazy and obscured. The clouds to the southwest looked good too. Then of course I had to focus on the cove because, well, La Jolla Cove. I also was impressed by the detail of Del Mar way to the south of Blacks. The clarity of atmosphere today was great, and it hadn’t even rained.
