The images in this gallery were made during a trip to Baja California in late December of 2015. The Baja is an 800 mile long peninsular running from the southern border of the State of California to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. The Baja is boarded by the Pacific Ocean on the west and the the Sea of Cortes (Gulf of California) on the east. The area is pollution free which results in clear skies with remarkable cloud formations. Except for brief visits to Cabo San Lucas and La Paz most of the travel was by small ship which visited various islands and beaches in and along the Sea of Cortes.
