Sutro Baths on the Ocean. San Francisco, California. USA


Photographer's STORY: Clamoring up and over the remains of Sutro Baths near the Cliff House in San Francisco. Odd to see the park service leaving everything to erode with the will of both weather and ocean. Sutro Baths were a massive complex of pools filled with saltwater built in 1896. Hordes of SF locals and tourists in funny looking, striped and cotton-y, long bathing suits paddled around in these baths until it burned down in 1966. I'm so, so glad not to have to wear those bathing suits, tho the pools would have been WOW. #travel #explore #californiaStories -a

Ocean Beach Girl. San Francisco, California. USA


Photographer's STORY: Not my kid. Not my model. Setting up for a gorgeous flotsam and sunset shot and a little German girl with flying skirt and braids photobombs me. She has no idea and no inhibitions. Just pure joy that comes when giddy with ocean air and salt water. Touch the light. #pacificOcean #SF #epicstory -a

Clouds on the Pacific Ocean. Coastal CA. USA


Photographer's STORY: Instantly I'm inspired by the giant heart that the clouds are so clearly trying to make. To fit into the cleavage of the green landscape below. However as i fiddle and gaze at it more, it becomes almost a piece of modern art for me. The tones and stripes and colors and rays and splotches on the Pacific Ocean. This is the beauty of mother nature's work. She creates masterpiece after masterpiece for our delicious interpretation. #publicLands #masterpiece #epicstory -a

Rolling Waves of Green. Sunset Hike. California. USA


Photographer's STORY: 
Sometimes we give up on words. And we just stare in a dumbfounded way. And just soak the Awe in. #glow #nature #epicstory -a

Spring Wildflowers. Mt Tam State Park. California. USA


Photographer's STORY: Heavy, constant rains all winter into spring turn our hiking hills into wildflower gardens and glowing, green waves this year. Looking out over the Pacific Ocean feeling that natural nature buzz. Hills so bright and gorgeous we need to wear our polarized shades... #poppiesWow #epicStory #thisNowYes -a
