The best way to start a day | Avila Beach, CA

This morning mom and I headed out (relatively) early and made our way to Avila Beach. It was GORGEOUS – crisp and chilly (a good excuse to try out my new fingerless gloves) but clear, with vibrant blues adorning the ocean.

I shared a quick preview of this shot on Instagram but thought you might like to see the full version. I only made a few adjustments. The result straight from the camera was pretty good!

Today I am thankful for:

  • A fantastic start to my day: a bit of photography and a decadent breakfast out with my mom (complete with a mimosa)!

What are you thankful for today?
