This is a the second part of my recent trip to Southern California with the focus this time on the Malibu Coast. The flowers here consisted mostly of Giant Coreopsis, Purple Sand Verbena, and a few California Poppies with some other varieties thrown in. Again, the bloom this Spring was beautiful where ever I went.
The rugged coast during sunset had a surprise element that I won’t soon forget. While setting up on a different day for another shot on the clifftop, I was fortunate to spot a pod of Grey Whales passing by right below me almost in the break zone. I was latter told that they come in close to rub the barnacles off their bodies on the rocks. They were migrating up to Alaska. It was a fantastic sight to see them lunge their enormous heads out of the water along with the spray coming from their blowholes. This went on for over an hour as they hung around my location. There were many others who shared in this experience which made it even better.
Thanks for viewing my site and I hope your spring is going well!
