Big Bertha's Adventures

My favorite place


An associate is traveling to Monterey Bay, California next week.  That inspired me to dig up some old photos from my trip to Monterey Bay.  Plus, I figured everyone needed a break from my macro photography bonanza.

 

This was before I was an avid photographer and long before my camera, Big Bertha.

We visited during the 4th of July – and I remember it was cold.

My photography skills have improved over the years but what remains the same is my love for taking pictures of rocks…especially when they are this fascinating.

I still remember the unusual sand formation in the photo below.  No, it wasn’t a fresh sandcastle – it was hard to the touch.

Another view of the sand.

One of the highlights of the trip was collecting seashells and other treasures.  At the time I only had an empty cookie container to store them – and they have remained there all these years later.  I decided to take the treasures out this evening and photograph them.
