Only in Southern California
Elephant in the clouds

We took a trip out to Moreno Valley for a funeral service for our friends dad who passed away. It was a touching & beautiful service, which is exactly how it should be done-'A Celebration of Life.'
We were driving home & I noticed the amazing light shining down through the clouds. I was thankful I had my camera with me...these are the things that took my breath away.
It's as if the Lord was guiding him home...
The following week while my parents were here visiting we headed down to the beach to grab a bite to eat and sit out in the warm California sunshine, catching some rays.
They really enjoyed this...they live in Utah and it's snowing & freezing there this time of year. It was really windy as we headed down to the pier. I turned to take a few shots of the beach & palm trees when I noticed the picturesque snow capped mountain tops framing the palm trees.
Only in Southern California can you head out in the morning to surf and then an hour later be on the slopes snow boarding/skiing.
I don't think I could ever live anywhere else...
