Holiday Surf…

Hi all,

Hope you are all having a great holiday season.

I was walking off some of the Christmas goodies and getting some fresh air and a little exercise around Hermosa Beach. There was only a few surfers around the pier and not much of a swell but caught this shot before heading off  home. Hope you like it.

I’ll be looking out for some more dramatic shots when the weather gets rough. I’m still pushing the Sony A7rii and this weekend I’m hoping to put the 24-240mm lens through it’s paces. I’ll let you know how it goes…

Hope you like it!

Stormy Day in Redondo Harbor

A very wet and windy day in Redondo Beach. Rushed down to the pier to get some quick shots. It was really quite dramatic with waves breaking over the rocks and wind howling through the wires on the railings. Quite dramatic. It was a lot of fun but the wind had a cutting edge to it and I did not have a jacket, so as soon as my camera battery ran out so did I!! Hope you like the picture…

Thanks for taking a look,

A walk on the Beach…

Just walking around on Hermosa Beach when the weather was a little less pleasant and left the beach a little empty, I grabbed a chance for this late afternoon shot with the new Sony A7Rii and an old Canon FD 28mm manual focus just topped it off with a few sailing boats enjoying the high breeze before  returning to Redondo King Harbor…
