Good Night From Moro Bay

Early evening from the pleasure craft end of the bay

This one was taken a few minutes after the previous one. We sped over to the rock and I took this one. It's the lower right corner of Morro Rock.

Looking across the bay at town

I have more photos of the trip, but I think I've posted enough.  Thanks for looking and commenting!


  1. Oh wow.....the colors in that second photo, especially, are just STUNNING. LOVE these, Pat! You have such a talent for capturing beauty. (I could be really cheesy here and say, "No wonder you caught your beautiful wife"...but I'll behave....sort of!) ;)

  2. Wow, how beautiful. Who knew the sky could be that color!

  3. Absolutely stunning!
    I'd enlarge the middle on and frame it :-)

  4. Don't stop on my account. I've loved each leg of your trip.

  5. Ooooo those are so beautiful. I think the first and second one are my faves and definitely deserve to be in frames.

  6. Wow. I am still smitten with that huge rock.
    You could post more of them as far as I am concerned, Pat...I never tire of looking of your photos of that area! (smiles)
