La Jolla Cove - Sunset Walks

       Last weekend, my husband and I went to La Jolla Cove in San Diego to see beautiful wild flowers and animals. We arrived there just in time for sunset. Right after getting off our car, we were able to enjoy watching the sun setting on a skyline. We started walking along the coastline of La Jolla.

       Beautiful sea lavenders were in full bloom there.

     I found the adorable seal swimming around La Jolla Children’s Pool.

        It was getting dark after sunset. It was gradually difficult to see wild animals, but I was able to see many seals lying on beach.

     It was seal and sea lion pupping season, so I was able to see some adorable pups there.

       The photo above looks very bright, but it was actually very dark with the naked eyes, and we were barely able to see cormorants, black birds, sitting and sleeping on the cliff. He took the photo with his Canon digital single-lens reflex camera, Canon EOS Rebel SL1 with telephoto zoom lens, Canon EF-S 18-55 mm. He didn't use any flush light while taking photos, but this photo turned out incredibly bright. Indeed, we didn't know that there were such a great number of cormorants until we saw the photo! I am really impressed at his Canon SLR Camera. :)

      We were pretty surprised that we didn't see any brown pelican which always sitting on the cliff around La Jolla Cove when we had visited there before.

      While we were walking along the coastline of La Jolla, it finally became completely dark. I saw a man walking very fast in front of us and watching his smartphone were playing Pokemon Go because his smartphone was very bright in dark. When he suddenly stopped on the road, I thought he probably found a Pokemon monster. :)  We have been to La Jolla many times so far, but it was our first time to walk at night. We really enjoyed walking and taking photos that day. :)
