Surf Fishing in Rosarito
Surf Fishing in Rosarito by Shana Harris
Fisherman are a ubiquitous sight along Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula. With approximately 3,000 kilometers of coastline, the peninsula is known for both its commercial and recreational fishing. This angler near the town of Rosarito in northern Baja California hopes to catch barred surfperch (la mojarra de bandas) before the sun sets. Like many locals, this fisherman and his family surf, fish, and dig for clams in the late afternoon and at dusk. Fishing licenses are not required to fish from shore, which makes these activities an economical way to supplement their diets, particularly in the spring and summer months.

Cloud Reflection at the Portland Reservoir by Lindsay Pettinicchi
She had never been there before and had heard good things about the views there. The cloud reflection was striking and very special last summer. She used a wide-angle lens to capture the dramatic depth of field and it was a very sunny day, so the picture has more of a contrast in black and white. Finding a good picture always makes her smile when she encounters it and this place is a hidden gem. She has developed an appreciation for nature and all of her wonderful adventures taking photos outdoors reminds her of how important it is to take time to relax and discover things. Nature really matters because it provides awe-inspiring beauty to the world we live in. With photography, she takes time to appreciate nature’s beauty and captures it in its natural environment.
