Xmas day’s car trip

Tuesday, December 26 2006

We + a friend did a car trip to Big Sur today and we, I mainly, drove this way. Big Sur is a National Park with a splendid nature. As everything else in the US, it is big that goes, tall tress, big leaves and real beauty.

We walked around in Bid Sur for a few hours and then drove down to the beach to see the sun set.

Over @ my Flickr is all the pics and I did a set called The Waves from the beach but it didn’t turn out that well on Flickr. Click on the pics in a quick succession… can you see the waves move?

These are my favs:What a view!

Tree crown My footstep  Perfect timing with the wave

How lucky was I when I took this pic?

But there are things that you can’t fully get by looking at these pics so to show what it is that I mean, I have uploaded my first clip to YouTube(!!):

I’d like to say a thanks to my camera, Canon SD450, and to MH that it picked for me! I am not a good photographer but this camera makes it easy and I can recommend it. The clip is is taken with my camera as well, YouTube didn’t keep the quality of it. I have a 512Mb memory stick (bought separately) and at the end of the day, I had used about half on the memory.

    I love that picture of the wave that appears to touch the sun … awesome. Although I’m very glad you went out yesterday and did something, I was alarmed to read that you drove. You did remember to stay on the correct (right) side of the road, didn’t you?? 😉

    Happy Boxing Day!

    Ah, the beach is kinda deserted. Nice pics too. Are those trees really that tall, or is it just the camera angle? By the way Liz, you always manage to stay behind the camera, like Nicole Richie when she filmed Paris Hilton’s sex vid 😛

    cap – I am happy to drive on the right side 🙂

    The nature here is spectacular and has its own beauty.

    Thx Jay 🙂 I’ll add you too. Apparently it is more difficult to feel the small when driving.

    slim – I will always stay behind the camera!! The trees are really that tall, they were so impressive.
