I’m participating in LetsBeWild.com’s Wild Weekly Photo Challenge. This week’s Challenge is: The Beach!

Well, how often does it happen that I participate in two photo challenges about the same theme? And how often does it happen that these challenges show up in the same week? So I want to apologize for those of you who already saw the photo below in my post about beaches a few days ago. I promise you I have some really nice photos to make up for it in tomorrow’s Macro Monday post.

These are photos from  Coronado Beach in a gallery format. You can click on any photo to open the slideshow. To view any photo in a larger format, just scroll down while in slideshow mode and click on “view full size” on the bottom right on the page. Enjoy!

Today I’m participating in Where’s My Backpack’s Travel Theme photo challenge. This week’s theme is “beaches”. Living in San Diego, it’s easy for me to get to the beach, yet I don’t do it very often. I love the fresh air and the wind, the smell of the ocean. I can’t stand the sand in my shoes and driving around for a parking spot. You can’t have it all!

I featured most of the photos below on my site before but I thought it’d be nice to put them together in a single post on beaches, in this case Coronado Beach. I’m using the gallery format for this today. Click on any photo to open the slideshow.

WordPress weekly photo challenge: Change

I’m participating in the WordPress weekly photo challenge and this week’s theme is change. I could pick from so many different types of photos to illustrate this theme. The first thing that actually came to mind was the change of spring and the rebirth of nature around me. But then I remembered this past weekend and my visit to Coronado Beach to see the Pacific Ocean.

I love watching the ocean waves as they come and go. I could sit on the sand and watch them for hours. If you don’t pay close attention, you’ll think the waves all look the same, but they really change a lot from one to the next. They start and break in different places. Each is of a different height. The rolls never seem to appear in the same spot. Though the ocean seems constant, it’s constantly changing. Just like me!

I used my Canon Powershot G1 X for these shots with a polarizer filter and I love how the photos came out. Remember you can click on each photo to see a larger view. Enjoy!

I love watching the waves slowly form…

And they finally break to form a nice roll.
