While I was mind surfing the Salt Creek waves, Brown Pelicans were gracefully riding the Southern California curls…


I love finding the minute details in such ordinary things. Take for instance this one single wave. There are waves rolling up the beach every few seconds and yet here is this one moment in time – a true meditation in mindfulness


Another day in Dana Point, CA at dusk and another Doheny Beach surf session complete!


A misty morning just south of Modesto, CA. Looking into the Almond Tree groves toward infinity…


A rough, rusty barb wire fence and then the beauty as a small bird takes flight in Lynch Canyon Open Space…


Sunset and driftwood near Capistrano Beach, CA.
