A new horizon in Baja California, Mexico. Actually seeing new horizons is fortunately a wonderful thing I deal with quite often. This, because my husband and I like to travel a lot. – While this is not always easy, it is however very interesting and exciting.
Not only that I’m seeing new things often, but I also like to take photos of the horizon. Here are some of them, from our trip this summer.
I really like this one, because I’m also a fan of photographing starbursts and water 🙂
It was in San Quintin, Baja California, Mexico in July, a nice place for a summer break. We came down from Arizona to escape the heat of the summer. The West side of Baja Peninsula is cool indeed, but not very well developed; a few hotels/resorts are hosting the sport fishing amateurs, but other than that not too much else…
Other 2 photos I found interesting from our trip to Baja California were taken near La Bocana, a small fishing village on the Peninsula de Vizcaino, well known for harvesting abalone.
You have probably seen a water mirage before, but maybe few of you have taken photos of this amazing phenomenon. First I was really surprised that I was able to capture an image of something that actually doesn’t exist 🙂
A Real vs Fiction conundrum 🙂 Here they are:
This was an arid salty side of a beach transformed into a shortcut roadway between two villages: La Bocana and Punta Abreojos. The ocean was on the right side as you look at the photo. There was absolutely NO WATER at all on the horizon. However, you can still see the water reflections! – Nevertheless this is something to amaze even the less impressionable person:)
From La Bocana it took us a long drive day going South. We had to cross the Sierra de Santa Lucia Mountains from the Pacific Ocean to the Sea of Cortez.
We passed Santa Rosalia and spent one night in Loreto. A wonderful scenic road with a lot of fantastic landscapes. What a great experience this Baja California trip ! Click on the photos to see them in them in my original gallery.

The mirage was very beautifully captured. Loved it.
Thank you so much 🙂
Those mirage photos are astonishing. Never seen anything like it!
Thank you Margaret! I know it’s hard to believe that they are real 🙂
