Challenge 3 Brochure Pictures

Natural Bridges State Park in Santa Cruz, CA. We spent this past Saturday and even though it's crowded, it's still very cool. Beach, lake alcove, tide pools. Lots to explore. So this part of the challenge was to take pictures for a brochure for the city we live in. No I don't live in Santa Cruz, but seriously there is nothing remotely interesting to look at in the City of Sunnyvale. Even the one post card is pathetic. Santa Cruz County is my favorite part of my home state so I opted for this one. Plus we were in the neighborhood. Waves crashing on the rocks, and surfers in the water, nothing says Santa Cruz to me like that. If you've never been to Santa Cruz, it's beaches are a combonation of rocks, and sand depending on the tide some beaches are totally rock and at low tides they are these cool hidden beaches.
This of course is the rock that Natural Bridges got it's name for. On top is all the pellicans that hang out and fish in the kelp.
