The drought, the coast, the heat, the beach, the surprises, the opportunities.
The trip started with an empty station and a late train.
And yet the surprise of an unexpected chance to get pics of Marine one.
Later the day came to a spectacular end with a sunset that even impressed the locals.
Next day the early light brought us to the wetlands at Goleta Beach. The light and the wildlife just seemed to want to cooperate.
We hit the macro shots of the flowers. Kinda funny up there for an Orchid show and we got these.
Gotta say D_L really nailed the yellow flowers and the Mirror Mirror image. She has taken to the new camera pretty well.
Now this was the kinda hard part. Went up to Lake Cachuma to find few birds, dry ground and very low water levels.
