The sun kept going in and out of the clouds which made the lighting very unusual at times.
The picture above was supposed to be my last one because of all of the blowing sand but then I saw this huge kite and I wondered how someone could fly it in this wind and not end up in the water.
So I took a closer look and saw the surfer being pulled by the kite and I said "what the .... ?"
I've seen this before but never in conditions like these. I still wonder how he or she made it back to shore with such high winds and big choppy waves. This week for Outdoor Wednesday we move a couple miles down the coast to Balboa Beach.
I'm glad that I got these shots but in hindsight it wasn't very smart to take pictures with all of the sand blowing around. I got lucky this time.
