Brief Directions

Moss Landing is a small, working harbor on Monterey Bay between Monterey and Santa Cruz, California. It's the home of MBARI, the Monterey Bay Aquarium Institute and a number of other marine research facilities. It's also the entrance to the Elkhorn Slough, a seven mile long tidal salt marsh and wildlife habitat. The slough is home to over 340 species of birds.

Description

We went to Moss Landing Harbor at dawn one spring morning to photograph sea otters and other wildlife in the area. Having no luck (due, in part, to not having a long enough lens), I went to the beach nearby just as dawn was breaking. A rare coastal morning with no marine layer created the contrast of light and shadows on the sand.
