Discover Challenge: Here and Now


I went on the Daily Post looking for the photo challenge but there didn’t appear to be one – instead it featured a challenge for “here and now”.  Since I had just returned from La Jolla Cove where I was trying out a new camera I thought I’d post some photos of that particular here and now (from a couple of hours ago).   I went to the cove with the intention of catching birds in flight but there wasn’t much going on so I just took what interested me.  Here are some of the here and now photos ….that I took…..then.

The sun was out at first but there wasn’t much moving  so I walked over to where the sea lions normally bask by the water and found this little guy enjoying the sun and the surf.

When the sun was still low in the sky  there were numerous cormorants nesting in a tree above the cove.  I managed to catch this silhouette of one of them coming in to its perch.

The light got pretty flat after a while and there still wasn’t much flying so I caught this shot of the cormorants also enjoying the crashing surf.  As here and nows go, this was a pretty nice one.
