Mizen Head Signal Station

The Mizen Head Signal Station lies at the tip of Ireland and is well worth a visit. I haven’t been there since this photo was taken many years ago.

Sunrise on the wharf in Santa Cruz, California just over a month ago.

Sunrise in Playa Blanca

Sunrise in Playa Blanca

Playa Blanca lies on the southern coast of the island of Lanzarote. It’s a beautiful town, built entirely with tourism in mind.

Sunrise wasn’t what I had hoped it would be. The sun is blocked by the new Rubicon Marina (it’s so new that Google Maps thought we were swimming in the sea when we were walking around the shops and stalls there!) until it rises a few degrees above the horizon but it did light up the clouds floating high above my head long before it rose in the distance.

In the other direction from where I stood is an extinct volcano. Unluckily for me I didn’t look at the “photos of nearby attractions” in Google Now until the last evening when I saw an amazing sunset over that volcano. Unfortunately the sun had already gone down which means I’ll have to go back there again. What I go through for my photography. The pain and suffering…

Early morning Santa Cruz Wharf

Early morning Santa Cruz Wharf

This was the view from my hotel room at The Dream Inn, Santa Cruz last week. Seems like a million miles away now, but in fact it’s only about, oh, maybe six thousand miles.

Anyway, I was there with almost all of Automattic for our annual meetup. It’s a fabulous location, the early morning light is amazing and the people I was with were great.

Lots more photos to follow, but in the meantime, check out photos by Kevin, John, Krista, Marcus and Beau and when I find more I’ll link to them from here!
