Protecting and Restoring the Morro Bay Estuary.

Photograph Friday: Morro Bay Skies

Photograph Friday: Morro Bay Skies

Blue skies light up over the back bay near Baywood Pier.

 

 

Morro Bay is well-known for the marine layer that often covers the bay and the surrounding towns. (Read John Lindsey’s recent article about how El Nino made this year’s June gloom and no-sky July even stronger.) But the sky above the estuary and watershed has many different moods. On this Photograph Friday, we want to share a few of our favorite photographs of Morro Bay skies with you.

We hope you might share some of your favorite photographs with us before our Textures of Morro Bay Photo contest closes at midnight tonight.
