Southern California is an amazing place. On a sunny weekend day in mid-winter everyone is out, biking, beach combing, sunbathing. I took the opportunity to have some fun with the new camera. These were all taken within a few hours at the beach in Carpinteria. I used the same lens, mostly the same settings (I'm just learning). I did post process the pics using Picnik. Love, love, LOVE the way they turned out.
