The Magical Spring Gift

...through this photographic eye you will be able to look out on a new light-world, a world for the most part uncharted and unexplored, a world that lies waiting to be discovered and revealed.
Edward Weston

I was given clearance to go on my first post surgery trip as long as I used a light camera and no backpack. Not a problem. We went to Point Lobos where Edward Weston did so much of his photography. As we were hiking we approached a cove. It was somewhat isolated. Much to our delight a set of mother seals came ashore. For a next half hour I was gifted with a magical sight of mother and pup nursing, playing and sharing tender moments. While I wished I had had a more powerful lens, I still was able to take some very satisfying photos. There were also some incredible sights elsewhere. I'll share more in the week to come.

It was a wonderful return to active photography.
