I went on a little vacation over the weekend and made a sightseeing tour to Watsonville and Monterey. Very beautiful beaches and rocks up there, as well as some very friendly squirrels. I took a few pictures that I think came out pretty well. The first one is this squirrel I saw perched on a rock, staring out over the ocean. I got lucky and snapped a shot of him right before he ran off.

This one wasn't anything special, I didn't really have time to frame the shot, just turned around and snapped a picture before the squirrel took off again.

I forgot to mention, the pictures of the squirrels were taken on Shutter Priority, but I lost my numbers already when I cleared the memory card :( The pictures have been retouched with an Unsharp Mask and a mild contrast enhancement, as well as the general crop and resize.

That's a brave woman! (I'm pretty much a wuss when it comes to squirrels...)

Poor squirrel (first pic). Don't do it! Things 'll get better! You'll find some nuts! Ease back now, slowly, slowly... there. (Crowd cheers...).
