Incoming Tide, Late Afternoon, Ocean Beach, San Francisco 01 Sept 2013

Standard

Good Evening:

Since Land’s End isn’t the only beach in town, today’s selection comes from my late afternoon visit Ocean Beach at the end of the N-Judah line about a mile further south. The experiments began with an accidental discovery; namely, after all the years/decades that I’ve looked at beaches the realization finally hit that sand, of all things, can become highly reflective when wet. The original photo wasn’t good enough to keep, but some others came out tolerably well. I like the third one because the young woman seems to stand on the reflected sky.

America celebrates Labor Day this weekend, but that does not mean that all of us free from labor. Sailors still want to reach a safe harbor, after all.

Even at the beach one might still find a San Francisco oddity.

And at the end of the day, the pelicans return home as they have done for millennia.

And on that note, I believe the time has come for me to fly to my bed, too.
