The scenery at Bolsa Chica Wetlands is especially beautiful after a winter rainstorm. This is our local nature preserve and is a favorite place for the local (and non-local) photographers to take pictures of the local and migratory birds. I have recently taken up bird photography with a passion myself and find it to be relaxing, exciting, challenging and rewarding. This particular evening, the sun was beginning to set behind me casting a lovely glow upon the colorful sky, far-off mountains and wetland waters. If you look closely, you will see a few of the local photographers on the bridge which extends over the waters...trying their luck to get the (bird) shot of a lifetime.
