sea suds



I studied how to use the clothes washer. The handy instructions on the lid helped; so did the box of suds. It instructed me to separate the whites from the coloreds. Laundry will be the last American institution to desegregate.

    • You got that right! That particular spot of light wouldn’t have been there at any other moment (as in the 2nd shot). So I should quit the belly-achin’! 😀

      As for the brownish stuff…. They’re sea palms. I’m sure you’d recognize them if they were in the standing up position. “Sea palm’s rubbery stalks allow it to bounce right back. Watch as a wave crashes over them and you’ll see them bounce back up as the water sheds off.”

      I don’t say this often enough, but I sure look forward to your comments! 😀


    • Of course you can ask! 😀 There’s a rather neat trail at Port Orford Heads State Park where this was shot. The trail gives you some rather nice views south toward Humbug as well as north to Cape Blanco. I lucked out with the sun going down at the right angle for this one. We had thought of sticking around for sunset, but the trail is a bit narrow with lots of roots sticking out across it and we didn’t think to bring a flashlight. I SHOULD HAVE thought of bringing one after reading your post about one of your shoots here on the coast. Perhaps I’ll stick a MagLite in the camera bag.

      • I think I may have been on that very same trail, though it would have been during my brief time on the coast in ’09 (because I didn’t stop at Port Orford Heads in ’15). Is it the one the runs right out on the cliff? This shot ( comes from that trail, as do a few others in the same gallery).

        Always a good idea to have a flashlight or headlamp in your bag. I routinely carry both. Came in handy most recently last month when getting in position to shoot Mono Lake at sunrise, but I used the headlamp on several occasions in Florida a few months ago. The key is remembering to check on the batteries every so often.


        • We only went on the one trail that heads northward for a view of Cape Blanco on this particular night, but there’s another section of trail where you can also get a view of Humbug to the south. The added benefit is that you can see what that dratted marine layer is doing in both directions!

          I can’t be certain, but just added another shot I took of what may be the very same formation you linked to. Have to say I like your framing and lighting way better!

    • Caught that sun while waiting for the sunset, but then I started thinking I didn’t want to head back on the trail in the dark and missed the moment when the sun did go down! This turned out to be compensation.

      • I know what you mean about not wanting to walk along a trail in the dark. I’ve recently bought a very tiny powerful camping lantern which I take outdoors hooked onto my camera bag if I go for a walk late in the afternoon – just in case.
