SoCal King Tides

http://california.kingtides.net/

The last week of January brought king tides in SoCal. The above group encouraged folks to send them images, so I went out a few times to see what I could come up with. Used my GoPro Hero3+ Black and Nikon D80 with 18-200.

I went to the beach Tues pm and took video and pictures at low tide. I then went back out Wed am to try to get high tide images, but it was very foggy so they came out poorly. On Thurs am it was grey and cloudy, but the coastline was visible, so I got high tide pics, albeit with very different lighting.

The South Bay beaches are very broad, and parts of the coast rise rapidly above sea level. For example Google Earth says the runways at LAX are 100+ ft above sea level, despite being only a half mile from the surfline. As a result, there's none of the dramatic flooding or breath-taking surf threatening vulnerable-looking structures that would make for attention-grabbing images.

In addition, I didn't do a great job of reviewing the low tide images and knowing the exact spot I needed to go back to for the high tide images. The comparison images suffer a bit because the perspective changes slightly on some of them.

And I can't believe I've spent so long living lies I know were wrong inside,
I've just begun to see the light.
