Since March our lives have changed, but we've all heard enough about that. Instead, here are some photos of how Goleta folk made the most of their social distancing.

There has been some fairly consistent surf.

The downside to that was that no one was going to work or school, so you usually had lots of company.

Looks like about 6 feet apart, good job guys...

There was some late season swell that made for a solid week of surf in May.

Well, there were waves.

And all the "Shelter in Place" business was just a memory. Unless that place was the beach...

Paramedic droppin' in...

The fog came and went a few days, which usually cuts the crowd down a lot. Definitely makes surf photography a challenge.

But June was when the windswells popped up.

The copyright thing is fully understandable. Seeing it stamped boldly on every pic detracts from the viewing pleasure, however. Maybe bit more translucent lettering?

My goodness those watermarks are so small relative to the rest of the frame they are practically invisible. Of course if you're a "princess and the pea" type even a 5% intrusion is offensive. Maybe the Age of the Mendacious One is rubbing off on all his followers.

I didn't even notice because the pictures were so awesome! Had to go back and look again. No biggie, his pictures, his business. If I were him I would do the same thing. Wouldn't want anyone to use his images for gain.

Mini - Contact Tom; I’m sure he’ll sell you a print with a less obvious mark.....

It is amazing that people can complain about literally anything. I think we would all be a lot happier if we weren't so critical of the smallest things.

Corrected: Let's all cry because there are watermarks on this guy's photography.

That's funny, I literally did not notice the watermarks until I read that there were watermarks an took another look.
