Birds have flocked to the beach in masses lately, and they usually frequent this small lake by the ocean.

A dramatic effect of wet sand ravaged by the waves against the rugged mountains..

I was lucky to find this footprint in the sand perfectly preserved in a thin oil layer.

I found a small sand dollar that looked really clean, so I decided to snap a picture of it in the sun.

Classic Autumn

What I like best about Autumn is the different types of colors that exist not only in nature, but in foods too.

This pumpkin was shining bright in the morning sun, bringing out many shades of orange.

My favorite spot to take pictures is by the foliage, it’s very inviting and makes any object look like it’s resting so nicely. It’s almost as if this pumpkin is held up by air.

While California trees may not be as dramatic as they are in colder climates, it’s still nice to see yellow and orange leaves at this time of year.

Autumn is soon approaching and it’s that time of year for bright oranges, yellows, and browns. While it may seem weird to see a pumpkin in front of palm trees, it’s still an american tradition.

Squash is a unique vegetable with a similar profile to peppers. I found this particular one very appealing because it stands out among the greenery with it’s tree bark looking skin.

This pumpkin has a pattern that can be best described as “paint peeling”, which makes it stand out among most other natural foods.
