Trip: Oxnard, California (Beach Photographs)

I made a day trip to Oxnard, California this last Saturday. This is similar to the day trip I did a couple weeks ago to Pismo Beach. Oxnard is not nearly as beautiful as Pismo Beach, but it was nice nonetheless, with moments of nearly perfect weather.

I say that the weather had moments where it was nearly perfect because it was a little chilly until the clouds cleared away in the afternoon. When the sun came out and warmed everything up it was very nice. But just before sunset the clouds and chill returned.

The only camera and lens I brought along was a Samsung NX200 and a 50-200mm zoom. This turned out to be a good camera and lens combination for the images that I wanted to create. A tripod was used for a few photographs.

Here's a tip: Topper's Pizza near the coast is an excellent place for dinner. I recommend the carnitas pizza.

Here are the photographs in no particular order.
