Mola Morning

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by Patrick Smith

In route for a day of SCUBA diving off the Southern California coast we came across this large Mola Mola taking the morning light. When the wake of the boat didn't frighten him, but in fact lured him to our vessel, we suited up and joined him in the cool blue waters and shared each others company till pressing issues forced his departure to the depths.

Location: Four miles west of Redondo Beach, California
