We drove to Santa Barbara last night and stayed over, then drove to a state park beach where there is this wonderful restaurant right on the beach. This is where we had breakfast this morning before driving back to Venice. Some view! What an amazing place. What grand scenery! After ordering, I was looking out at the ocean. You can see one of the Channel islands in the distance, and a layer of fog lying low on the water. I got up from the table and walked to the other side of the glass surrounding the outside deck so I could photograph the scene. I stood there trying different compositions for 5 minutes or so, made a few exposures, and then this woman came running down the beach with her dog! Bingo! Much more interesting than just an empty landscape.
