Late Afternoon Walk, Carpinteria - 6x6

I loved the reflection of sunlight on these tree trunks.  I also love how you can see the ocean in the distance over the train tracks.

Palm Trees in Fog - 8x10 Plein Air

I really liked this one.  It was one of those days that's really foggy but still warm because the sun is trying so hard to break through.  The beach was empty with the exception of a few surfers in the water.
