SkyWatch with Pelican

Taken while walking up from Pt. Vicente fishing cove, a rocky beach between Rocky Point (home of the Terranea Resort) and Point Vicente (home of the lighthouse), seen previously HERE.
Yes, I did lean back (past the comfortable point) to get this shot.

I had to investigate, given your title! Immediate vertigo, but such a fun shot. And lovely clouds. (Off to my Cloudspotting guide...)

Yep, you leaned waaaaay back, but it yielded an eye-catching photo!

The cliff face makes the photograph more intriguing.

A lone pelican
hung in cerulean sky—
child, are you weeping?

Now that shot gives me vertigo! Worse than flying upside down (not that I've done that). - Margy

great shot Tash: thanks for your support these months. btw, are there remnants of The Dominator left?

I get dizzy just looking at it. At first the only way I could understand it was to see it as a reflection. Wrong. Thank goodness you set me right.
