Outdoor Wednesday ~ E.W. Low Tide

Time for another Outdoor Wednesday hosted by Susan at A Southern DayDreamer. My outdoor photos this week are from Ventura, California.

Early on Saturday we drove to Emma Wood State Beach in Ventura to enjoy the low-tide. We love to be able to explore these tide pools that are visible when the tide is low.

I thought the colors of these anemones were wonderful.

We were amazed to spot this Sand Shark in one of the pools and we investigated and discovered it was dead.

The light of dawn had a pretty effect on the water, sand and sky. Those black spots you see in the water are surfers.

On our way home we spotted this pretty Wisteria and I had to stop and take some photos. The Wisteria in Southern California blooms a lot sooner than in Washington State.

  6. Your pictures are absoulutely stunning Ellen! I actually felt a sense of calm come over me when I read the pics were taken just after dawn. The sea anemones are beautiful, (If I sound crazy, okay~but are they flowers or some sort of creature?). And the sand shark is incredible, now I know what to look out for!

    Happy Outdoor Wednesday!!
