An afternoon around Malibu

19 12 2012

We had a pretty brutal work schedule while I was down in Cali for 10 days. I managed to break free on the last afternoon to get out and see what Malibu Creek State Park had to offer and to head down to the beaches at Malibu. The photos are kinda crappy, since the weather was dark and cloudy. It even started to rain as it finally got too dark to shoot. My luck. It was beautiful the day before, and then beautiful the next day too… Not when I was out though.

I hope you enjoy!
