June Winner

June 2019 POTM

Congratulations Michael Sheltzer!
"My home is on Morro Bay and I am privileged to have daily access to the beauty and natural wonder of Morro Bay State Park, the Morro Estuary Natural Preserve and Montaña de Oro State Park. The locale provides an ever-changing photographic palette. Morro Bay is teeming with wildlife - birds, otters, deer, seals and sea lions to name a just a few. The otters are among the most entertaining."
