Photo Phriday: Bird Rock Tide Pools

043010_tidepools01

A few days ago I took myself to the tide pools in Laguna Beach for the first time. It has been something that has been on my list to visit for a long time. The tide pools were SO MUCH FUN! I felt like a little kid again leaping from rock to rock exclaiming in delight of the little treasures I found.

I opted to go to Bird Rock which is just north of Main Beach in Laguna Beach CA. Called Bird Rock because of the large rock island covered in birds I assume.

I am MUCH happier with the whole tide pool schedule than the birding schedule. Top birding time is 5:30am-10:30 am where top tide pool hour today was 3:45-4:45. So much more my style. Hope you enjoy the little treasures I found.

043010_tidepools03 LIKE AN ALIEN FROM ANOTHER PLANET THESE ANEMONES WERE SO SURREAL

043010_tidepools04 THIS SIMPLE SHELL WITH A SUPER TIGHT FOCUS CREATED AN INTERESTING SHOT. I PARTICULARLY LIKE THE IRIDESCENT PURPLE INSIDE.

043010_tidepools05 AHHHH THE KELP WITH ITS TANGLED MESS WAS SO BEAUTIFUL

LITTLE DISCOVORIES LIKE THIS MUSCLE GROUP SURROUNDED BY GREEN ALGIE MADE ME HAPPY

043010_tidepools07 HANDS DOWN MY FAVIOURITE PHOTO OF THE DAY THESE MUSCLES LOOKED METALIC IN THIS LIGHTING

043010_tidepools08 THE RED OF THE PLANT, THE INKY BLACK BLUE OF THE WATER AND THE TINY PARTICLES FLOATING. I ALMOST FELT UNDERWATER TOO!

THESE TINY ANEMONE’S WERE ONLY AS LARGE AS A PENNY AND SO ADORABLE THAT I WISH I HAD BROUGHT MY MACRO LENS IN ORDER TO CAPTURE THEM BETTER

043010_tidepools10 FOR SOME REASON THIS KELP PHOTO REMINDED ME OF A DRAGON WITH ITS TAIL ROLLING OFF INTO THE DISTANCE

LOVE THE DAINTY DELICATE LEAVES

THIS ANENOME WAS BUSY AT WORK EATING AWAY. WATCHING IT I HEARD NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC IN MY HEAD.
