Fly High, Breathe Deep

We used to drive Big Sur at least once a year, and on every trip we involuntarily did The Breath. The first few times we didn’t notice, but soon we began counting and I don’t recall any of our dozen or so drives that didn’t evoke at least half a dozen deep breaths. Few other drives do that for us, but many flights do. Today it would have been easy to hyperventilate. The air was relatively clear and calm, between the recent winds and storms, so we visited Point Conception. See if the full size of this view (or the larger one on my Photo Page) makes you do The Breath.

It worked for me again just now, but maybe because we had the full sensory overload there a couple of hours ago, and not just this little photo frame. Can you tell I love to fly? 🙂

We climbed higher, and the view back toward home looks like the backbone of a giant. Looking the other way, Point Arguello was equally scenic.

Given my recent posts, you know I took lots of rock photos flying the hills back home. No surprise perhaps, that I was also fascinated by the little arroyos and other terrain features like this spot probably familiar to surfers.

I’ll share more sometime soon, but want to go post a few larger favs to my Photo Page.

  1. Can’t believe you flew out to Point Conception without me.
