Don't fool around - go ahead and click the images to see the larger versions.
Pretty cool, but I think the better practice will be to do the color to black and white conversion back at home.

When plans for a Presidents' Weekend trip fell through, I pursued a consolation trip. It's working out pretty well. Nice skies over Kelso Dunes in the Mojave National Preserve.
More images on my Picasa page. If all goes well on Sunday, I'll add a few more shots.

I went out with Susan to scout a potential location for a pre-dawn photo excursion. Our destination was the Castro Crest, but since we had tidepools relatively near by at the completely-accessible Leo Carillo State Beach and an early-afternoon minus-low-tide, we took a little diversion.
The tidepools held many sandy anemones (see my January 22 post about that), a few starfish, sea grass, urchins, and mussels. And still I had no polarizer. So, how about that clever "foot print" (at top) left by some sand celebrant!
Our last stop was Malibu Seafood where we had fish and fries while the sun settled behind Point Dume. It was a beautiful sunset but as you know, I'm a luna-tic. The moon was what caught my attention in her 89% full glory.
