Default flora - At the harbor

We did a get-away weekend to Oceanside, and I spent most of the time taking pictures of fauna (visited the San Diego Zoo for the first time). I did manage to take a picture of some local flora. So many people think "palms and beaches" when they think about California. While this doesn't show the beach, it was taken there.

Mngal,
Those are some pretty tall palms. Fortunately they aren't coconut palms since taking down the coconuts would be a challenge. Coconuts here on public property are not allowed to have nuts that may fall on anyone because of potential lawsuits against the governmental agencies.

Mtgal,

I really like the lighting in this shot. However, I dislike that sign in the front right. We need city planners to think about us photogs when they build this stuff. If I ever get a hold of that guy that puts power lines in all my photos... well he is not going to like me.

LOL! I know what you mean, the picture was just a quick shot, thought I would include the sign to fix the location. When I thought about finding a better location to avoid the sign, the light/clouds changed and the contrast between the sunlit trees against the dark rain clouds wasn't there.
