Sunsets and Foggy Mornings in Santa Cruz

Is it any wonder that this town has so deeply set its hooks into my soul? The two images below are proof of the sheer epic beauty of Santa Cruz and I would put this town's scenery up against any in the world. The two shots are of Its Beach on West Cliff just north of the world famous Steamer Lane surf spot.
Its is especially nice because dogs are welcome to run free and have fun frolicking. There are people and dogs galore in both. 

The pano above is above Seacliff State Beach in Aptos before 8 am from earlier this week when the fog was thick everywhere on the coast except right here. And it was beautiful!


And then there was this

Took this last night towards the end of a bike ride around town and out along West Cliff.


Some of the Reasons Why I Love Santa Cruz

All of these are mine except the last one. Its easy to take a gorgeous picture when you have a gorgeous model with some many beautiful angles and poses.
Cowell's and the wharf.
Today in Santa Cruz looking at the wharf from the other side of town.
Found an iOS app that takes photos and planetizes them for you.
This pano makes the river look way bigger than it is.
Not mine but wow-freakin'-wee!
