I am heading south, not as far south as the photos below, but far enough south to experience something completely new.

One morning, my roomate Cody asked Lauren and myself to go camp up in Mammoth Lakes over the holiday weekend. Less than two hours later we were off. I have only ever been to Mammoth in winter time, so going when there was no snow was an entirely different experience. We left San Diego where it was hovering around 102 and arrived in Mammoth at our camping spot where it was in the low 30's. We took our time on the drive stopping to check out the smoke from the LA fires as it floated across the desert and to walk around a 'ghost' town, which pretty much was just a bunch of old people playing checkers outside of their house. (which might be creepier than actual ghosts) It was good seeing old friends who live in Mammoth year round, I envy how nice of a town they have. Hopefully I can make it back up to the Sierras before the first snowfall, which is quickly approaching.

Since the waves are flat but the water is crystal clear. I decided to swim out with my friend bob and shoot some photos. I still haven't figured out how to get em tack sharp, but I am working on it.

Fall is my favorite time of year by far. Even though Southern California doesn't have trees that change colors, our ocean and sky dictates the seasonal change. Morning offshore wind grooms the ocean, while the afternoon light makes the ocean glow. A lot of the time it stays glassy all day. I shot the following photos last week and they got me stoked for fall to say the least. enjoy.
