Firey Refractions Part 2

  • For this photo challenge, show us what “refraction” means to you. It could be an image taken in a reflective surface, it could be light bent from behind an object, or it could mean remedial math homework: the choice is completely up to you. I’m looking forward to seeing how you interpret “refraction.”

Firey Refractions Pt2This was sky just before the picture below was taken. I had no time to drive anywhere so I walked out to the main street and improvised the shot with the trees. About 10 yards to the left was the freeway on-ramp and some bridge construction. I was walking back to the car when I noticed the sun starting to set behind the trees. I guess it proves the point you will never get the great shot sitting in the house. Unless you are looking for an interior shot. :]

La Piedra State Beach Part II

The West end of the beach is rocky cobblestone that forms a natural tide-pool when the tide is out.  Unless the tide is out you can’t get very far by continuing on to the West.  The rocky shore gives way to stretches of sandy beaches.

Finally, the correct way in and out. Truth be told, the first few steps weren’t much easier that the wrong path I took on the way down.

First time visitors to the beach heading down the path in flip flops. Flip flops are good way to break you ankle as you get close to the bottom.

One last look at the ocean before the path back to the car.

It’s tempting not to pay the parking machine but the Park Rangers make frequent stops.
