My very first photo outing for 2013 took place during the first few days of the new year, which I spent on the Central Coast of California. I took pictures in three locations, the third of which was Morro Bay, about a fourty-five-minute drive from where I was staying in Santa Maria.

I feel that this collection of photos is one of the most artistic that I have put together in quite a while. There are some color images, and some in black and white — and some I couldn't decide, because they were both so nice, so I put a color version AND a black and white version. I tried to be creative in my choice of lenses and in where I placed the camera. There are two short time-lapse photography videos, which show the motion of the waves.

In addition to quite a few shots of Morro Rock, I also took photos of the aging power plant — which my grandfather helped build! — as well as a few wildlife shots and some images of the moon. That's quite a lot of variety for such a small collection!

During the 80 minutes I was at Morro Bay I took 155 pictures, 23 of which were selected for this album. Photos taken at the two other locations during this trip can be found in the Oso Flaco 2013 and Grover Beach 2013 albums.

The photos in this album were taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 camera.
