Ocean Beach 2012
Roger's diary of photo shoots to Ocean Beach in San Diego, California.


12/30/11 Rich Strobel wanted to get out of the house to test is recalibration on his Nikon 300mm lens, so he called and invited me to meet him at Sunset Cliffs at Ocean Beach. It was a beautiful clear sunny warm 78 F. day in San Diego. Had a very enjoying time being out in our beautiful scenic San Diego.

 

01/6/12 This day was suppose to be one of the highest tides all year for San Diego. My friend Dick Strobel wanted to photograph it in Ocean Beach at sun rise. I got up at 5:00am to meet him at the Ocean Beach Pier at 6:00am. I made the early rising, meeting Richard, Lew, and Bill all serious photographers down at the pier. The pier is lighted so we did a few night shots when we arrived. The height of the waves were impressive many of them going way over the pier. The pier was closed to all foot traffic by the San Diego City life guards. There was plenty of parking when we arrived, but by 7:00am there were people all over. All the local TV stations were there and perhaps 100 local photographers. It was a real happening and a fun event. I have 6 photos on my Photos_OB1 page of the big waves.
