Day 58 – Rainy Palm Abstract

Still dealing with this damn cold! Add cabin fever to the mix of symptoms now. Amidst the rain, we had a tsunami today here in San Diego, albeit a small one (2 ft. surge). The sight to be seen wasn’t in the small surge, but in how far out the water went before returning. From what I heard, some boats on buoys were left to float on sand until the water came back in. That would have been cool to see, let alone photograph. I couldn’t have been less interested…

I dragged myself outside for a bit after the rains had slowed and found some interesting light filtering through date palms.  This shot appealed to me in an abstract art sort of way. Considering it was a 13 second exposure, I wasn’t expecting tack sharp water drops but that would have been nice. Still, there’s something about it that I really like. Hope you like it!

    Hi Steve Sorry to hear you and Susan are under the weather. The blue fish are just beautiful and the drop of water on the date palm is quite special. Did you bring the fish back from one of your trips? Hope you both will be feeling better soon, Love Marilyn
