Sandscape-Moss Landing Beach
Photo By Doug Jones

  • Title: Sandscape-Moss Landing Beach
  • State/Province/Region: California
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Monterey Bay
  • Nearest Town: Moss Landing
  • 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.
  • Best Season: Spring
  • 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.
  • Gear: Canon EOS 5D MKII, Canon EF 16-35mm at 31mm, Gitzo Mountaineer tripod with RRS BH 55 ballhead
