“Over the Estuary” – San Jose del Cabo, Mexico
“Because there’s nothing more beautiful than the way the ocean refuses to stop kissing the shoreline, no matter how many times it’s sent away.”
― Sarah Kay
After a sustained hiatus, I’m going to start back into my blogging with an image that is an escape from the cold, slow filled winter we have experienced this year. Mostly because this winter has offered me little material that I have felt inspired by and I have not done much indoor floral photography, which was my go to activity last winter.
Today, I’m sharing one of my favourite views, the southern tip of the Baja peninsula as viewed across the estuary at San Jose del Cabo.
The whole scene evokes fond memories for me in the combination of sand, sea, and southern mountains. The shot itself captures these elements in nice layers, transitioning from grasses and freshwater, to the sandy beach, ocean, and distant coastal mountain.
The estuary itself has existed for many years, even being referenced in the logs of early european sailors, who made it a regular stop to refresh steps of drinking water. I will go into more detail about this fascinating feature in upcoming posts. For now, enjoy a simple composition from warmer climes.
