For this month's Group Shoot for the San Diego DSLR Photo Group we met at the Children's Pool, on the coast in La Jolla just south of the Cove. It was really foggy on Saturday morning, which made for some interesting pictures. We had a pretty good size group turn out, I think about 23 of us made it into the group photo.
The tide was high, the fog was thick, and the ocean was turbulent when we walked out onto the sea wall. There were lots of seals resting on the sand and playing in the waves in the Children's Pool. The fog makes it hard to see the seals on this rock just off shore.
One of my cousins mentioned the other day that I should put more pictures of Heather up on the blog, so here is one of Heather standing on the sea wall. So, here you go Mary, this one is just for you.
There actually were a few people swimming and even diving over at the Cove, just a bit north of here. I doubt that the water was any warmer there.
Even the seals knew where it would be warmer. I didn't have a long lens with me, but with a fair amount of cropping I was able to get this.
Did I mention that the fog was kind of thick?
On our way to lunch we stopped in to the La Valencia Hotel to check out the Christmas tree in the lobby. Finally something colorful.
