Ohio va a la Bufadora | Ohio goes to the Blowhole

La Bufadora is an underwater ocean geyser 30 minutes or so south of Ensenada. Its name literally translates to “the blowhole.” Basically, it’s a pair of giant rocks just beneath the ocean’s surface that, when hit by an incoming wave with enough force, shoots water some 20 or 30 feet into the air. If you decide to nix the up-close-and-personal splash zone and precursory row of tourist traps (not to mention paying 20-100 pesos to park), the view from the cliffs that overlook the visitors’ center makes you feel as though you're standing in the sky.

But that involves missing out on Super Viagraman, who guards the pharmacy down below.

It's just a fisheye attachment for my 18-55 lens. Vivitar. Ha. I think they sell those at Big Lots. But I always get a shadow when using the built-in flash.
