Morro Rock Wind Storm High tide

On August 6, 2005 I went fishing with my brother Brent his two boys and some friends. We were fishing at a location called 20 minute rock on our boat. The fish were biting like crazy. We all caught our limit in no time. Little did I know that the catch of the day, or catch of a lifetime was yet to come. As we were fishing we noticed a huge humpback Whale breaching a half-mile away or so towards shore. I had my camera with me and asked my brother to move the boat closer to the whale so I could photograph it. He didn't want to move because the fishing was great. We kept on fishing and that whale kept on jumping and flapping the water with his large fins. I took a few shots of this whale from a distance. I was going crazy. Here I had my camera and this huge whale was jumping only a half-mile away and my brother didn't want to move the boat. I just knew I was going to miss this great opportunity. I never have seen a whale jumping like this, over and over again. I knew he would stop soon and I was going to miss it. Finally we caught our limit of fish and my brother was ready to go. Fortunately the whale was still jumping and flapping the water like crazy. I had my brother position the boat so Morro Rock could be in the background. Everyone on the boat would yell out, "there he is!" as he jumped. One time he came up right in the middle of the rock and jumped towards our boat. Everyone was yelling, "Did you get that? Did you get it?" "Yes I got it!" I said. It was one of the most exciting days of my life. On the way back in I looked at the photos I had just taken with my digital camera. (Canon 20D, 70-200 IS 2.8 lens) I could not believe my eyes. If you ever get the chance to go whale watching in Morro Bay don't forget to take your camera!

Lightning flashed all through the night on August 29, 2007. I wanted to go out and take some photos but didn't want to take a chance on getting my camera wet or worse getting struck by lightning. I got up all through the night looking out my front window with Morro Rock in view. The lightning was spectacular to say the least. At 5 A.M. I noticed the rain had stopped so I decided to get my camera and head for the bay before the morning sunrise. I took this shot right around 6 A.M. while it was still very dark. I exposed it for 66 seconds at F 11 with my Canon 5D. I shot it in Camera RAW. I was fortunate enough to get four shots similar to this. I will be posting them all here soon. Notice all the birds sitting at the top of the trees here at the Morro Bay Bird sanctuary in the second and third cropped images. I can't believe how these birds just sit at the top of the trees through a storm like this. I don't even want to step outside! If you would like to have a print please contact me.

We never have lightning in Morro Bay, California. At least that is what I was told. Then one night, it just keeps on striking over and over again. I thought it would stop soon but it didn't. Every time it flashed I thought to myself, "that is probably the last one I wont be able to catch it with my camera." After about 45 minutes of this I couldn't take it anymore so I jumped in my truck and headed for Morro Rock. I must say I am very happy I did. I missed a lot of great shots but this one was well worth my trouble. I had my camera on a tripod and I exposed the rock several times hopping for a lightning flash to hit but nothing! At least I learned how long to expose the rock just in case I did get the shot. Finally I nailed the shutter just as this bolt hit then I held it open for about 30 more seconds and WOW. You can see the bolt of lightning on both sides of Morro Rock. I was counting the seconds from the time I saw the lightning to the time I heard the thunder and I believe this bolt was about 30 to 40 miles away from Morro Bay. This shot was taken right at about 12 o'clock midnight. It is a high resolution photo and enlarges very well.

I was very happy to capture four boats at this dock during sunset with the fog just hanging over the top of Morro Rock. I hope you enjoy this photo as much did taking it. This is a very highly defined image and enlarges very well taken with a high resolution digital camera. It looks great on canvas or premium glossy photo paper. The colors are very vivid and pleasurable to the eyes. This is a very popular place in Morro Bay, California right on the Emarcadero. A bonus in this photo is the light shining in the boat with blue trim. Thanks for looking!

The tide is high here in Morro Bay, California on this beautiful day! Notice the offshore wind blowing against the waves as they power their way to shore. I love the huge splash caught in this photo of a large wave pounding Morro Rock. The wet sand reflects the beauty of the sky as night starts to fall over the west coast. You can see the city of Los Osos and Mantana De Oro State Park in the background. This is a high resolution photo and enlarges well. This photo also looks good in black and white.

This is one of my favorite rain storm sunset photographs. I love how the sun is hiding behind the clouds after the storm and is shining underneath and over them. I was standing at the edge of a river that was flowing from the recent rain storm into the sea near Morro Rock in Morro Bay, Ca. Notice how the rain is still falling over the ocean as the storm passes by. The seagulls add to the beauty of this photo as they bathe in the fresh water flowing into the sea from the rain storm. The sun glows over the ocean and through the clouds and glistens on the wet sandy beach with colors of fire.
