I would never consider myself a beach person even though I was born in Newport Beach and I've lived my whole life within an hour's drive of a beach, but I do have to admit there's something refreshing and soothing about a sunset on the beach. Especially in autumn when there aren't as many people.
I always like to seek out trees (alive or dead) that have great character. This one I noticed had many pock marks from woodpeckers. Only after I got up close did I notice that the woodpeckers had put acorns in the holes.
This beautiful flower offset the yellow of the daisy remnants was taken on the Fullerton Loop trail. I nearly stepped on this gem while taking photos of the nearby Brea Dam. You never know what you'll stumble across while you're out and about.
