Bootiful day for the beach.

I posted in whatcha doing about a spot that I just found yesterday that I took my GF too, it was a cool little cave and small tiny beach. Well we went for a walk together today and explored more and found a beach that is nearly untouched as well as lots of beauty.

Just wanted to share some photos. Sorry, it's with my point and shoot camera so the quality may be a bit crappier than usual. I sharpened/cropped and played with levels in photoshop.




This is the secluded spot that is a pit of a pain to get too that I mentioned from yesterday.




A sweet cave to cop a kiss from your girl.


Paragliders. Very popular paragliding spot.


Small double beach thingy close to the cave on the south end.


i tried to eat a star fish. It didn't taste like starburst like I had originally hoped.

And which PAS are you using?!? My film SLR doesn't shoot like that.
Yea they are all fixed up in photoshop.

Every photo needs contrast and sharpening IMO...


For example, compare the last shot to the original, uncropped, one that has no contrast fixed.





What do you mean PAS?

For sure.

That's one thing I like about Cali. It seems they actually take SOME interest in protecting some relatively untouched areas from developers.
