Ruby Tuesday / Morro Rock and the Kayaks




Walking around the Embarcadero in Morro Bay affords some amazing views of Morro Rock any time of the day. But, sunset is the best, of course. These shots were taken about 10 minutes prior to sunset. You can see a slight golden color on the left side of the rock (top photo) caused by a light fog on the ocean. My husband and I had spent the morning out around Morro Rock watching the giant waves crash on the breakwater. Those photos are in an earlier post. The rock is so massive when standing at its base, but, it doesn't seem so large from across the water. It is a giant, considering it is a rock and not a mountain! I couldn't resist getting these red-orange kayaks in a picture with the "rock."

It really does look like a massive rock structure. The colorful kayaks soften the view and give a great reference for the size of the Rock.
Colorful shot!!

The picture is very colorful indeed, and I was also wondering about the history and stories written about that rock!

Such inviting photos! And a nice contrast of the rich landscape and the man-made (kyacks?)
Happy Ruby Tuesday!

The red and orange kayaks against the blue water and dark rock look stunning!

Both are WONDERFUL Ruby Tuesday shots ... methinks the second is my fav because it shows clear BLUE skies ... a rarity for Morro Bay in my limited experience ;-)
Hugs and blessings,

That is a huge rock and the color of the Kayaks makes it really nice. Good shot you've got here. Thanks for sharing.

How artistic these are! They stand out better because they stand...maybe because these are in a vertical motif instead of the normal horizontal, they stand out more. Of course, it could be the ruby!

I like the composition of the second picture! It is like a picture post card.
