A standard tourist shot of my town -- looking down at the waterfront. At the right is the Breakwater and to the left of that is the wharf. That's where I take most of my sunrise shots. Santa Cruz Island on the horizon.

Just for the record, this isn't Santa Cruz, California. It's about 400 miles south. (Get out Google Earth and so some exploring 8) )

This does have a postcard feel to it. Nice to get a larger perspective on Santa Cruz.

You did a fantastic job of getting out the detail on the bottom, and I like those somewhat muted colors above.

Once, many years ago, I rode the old wooden roller coaster there on the boardwalk. Is it still operating? I either never knew or forgot (far more likely) there was an island. Makes an nice backdrop for your postcard.

Nice postcard shot. I like how I can see the palm trees lining the waters edge.

So beautiful, but (being a little grumpy), I'm missing the blue postcard sky and a straight horizon. Never been in California (and only once (less than a day) in the US), I'm just wondering where this is? Looks like a nice place to visit, with probably a lot of seafood.

Beautiful! I really like the palms all lined up along the coast. Different tones of water and horizon - very nice.

This is so pretty! Makes me really miss the ocean (I'm a so cal native)...

Looks like a very pleasant place to call home. especially the palm trees lining the esplanade near the water.
