this or that thursday: ocean

My trip to California was so much fun! I had an amazing host, Suzy. We laughed a lot! Most of our time was spent at the CHA show, but we did stop by the beach for a little while so I could have a look. This was near Laguna Beach. It's very different from the beaches I'm used to on my Florida vacations where there are no rocks or hills. The scenery was just breathtaking. Most of my photos were taken at the show with my iphone so these are the only shots I took with my dslr the whole time.





Of course I used my iphone at the beach too, and then added the amaro instagram filter which resulted in a fun shot of this beautiful scene...






It's time to link up again! There are just a few rules.

Okay, now just link up below so we can see what you've been shooting!

  10. Oh Deb!!!!! You captured my home of the beaches of So Cal so perfectly! I LOVE Laguna! It's amazing isn't it??!! I had hoped to get home before we moved but it just didn't happen. It's been 2.5 years now & I am still so homesick. Thanks for giving me a little taste of home to gaze at a bit.
