How does that saying go.. 'You can choose your friends, but you can't choose your family.'

Let's apply that premise to light-art and say that you can choose your subject, but you can't choose the weather. That was the theme of our last trip up the California Coast - 2 days of partly clear skies and the rest, a cloudy mess. Happy to snap a few good ones during those clear hours, one of which you see here - the newest edition to the Light-Morsels gallery.
