An Hour @ Ocean Beach San Francisco


All Photos and Video Taken By Me @ Ocean Beach San Francisco.

The audio in the videos is a mixture of the waves and the wind. It was a warm and beautiful day yet extremely windy. I decided to upload these on YouTube because for some reason the blogger videos do not show a photo frame and I like having a photo frame on my videos.







Hmm, interesting shadow shot? I'll leave it to your imagination :)




There are huge walls of sand along the great highway at the beach due to construction work going on at Sloat Boulevard and beyond. Due to high waves etc... there is alot of erosion and as a result walls of sand are being moved and cleared. It was an interesting hour at the beach today.

Thanks, Kass, I am always mesmerized by Ocean Beach

Nice.

Wonderful views of the ocean and dunes. I enjoyed watching the video of the waves rolling in as well. We go that way when we visit friends in Santa Cruz. It's much nicer than the inland route and I enjoy the drive around San Pablo Bay.

Thanks for your comment, some images just seem to call for a haiku but I am new at the art and feel insecure with my attempts.

Willie, Thank you.

Martha, It is the scenic route to Santa Cruz, which I miss, I haven't been there in ages. I loved your haiku and the way it was expressed. Don't be insecure, you have a talent.

An hour at the beach is always good even if it's windy and from the sound of those videos it was very windy

Thank you for sharing your hour by the beach. I especially like the vegetation in the first image and the patterns in the sand in the last one.

It must have been a very relaxing hour for you to just wandering around and soak in the ocean.

I always like seeing moving water. I love how the ocean looks like it's going on forever. I've only seen sights like that three times in my life, and only at two of our Great Lakes. And I love the patterns in the sand in the last picture.

Wonderful videos, Jo!! I was just down at Shell Beach in the San Luis Obispo area for our two day CA Sexual Assault Investigators conference which is held at the beautiful Cliffs Hotel on the Pacific - great weather, wonderful sleeping to the ocean symphony, good colleagues. It was a spectacular drive down with the hills so green after the winter rains.

Love that shadow shot - I captured some nice ones on this trip but none that can match that one in particular!!
