JEWEL SHORES - La Jolla Cove, California: After an afternoon of exploring coastline, I found myself intrigued by this small inlet, perhaps because it was somewhat of a challenge to get down onto the beach. The surrounding sandstone cliffs allowed for only one way in and one way out. With the tide slowing rising, I wondered how long I would have to photograph without getting trapped by the tide. But with the company of two local surfers, I relaxed and enjoyed my session. A recent rain shower left the sandstone glistening in the rays of the setting sun, as this charming scene was reflected in the waves washed upon the shore.
