Yesterday I went exploring with fellow-photographer QT Luong, the creator of Our National Monuments. Of course, we brought our cameras, and spent the afternoon through sunset along the beautiful San Mateo coast.
The first photograph was made in a grove near Davenport, California. The image below it was taken at Waddell Beach as a squadron of pelicans flew in front of the setting sun. (What do you call a group of pelicans, anyway? I’ve heard “pod,” “fleet,” and “pouch”—but “squadron” seems to fit pretty well.)
