Christmas Family Photos Barred on California Beach

You probably won’t be receiving a Christmas family photo card from a particular beach in California this holiday season:

APTOS — Howard "Boots" McGhee and his family felt like they had an encounter with the Grinch when they tried to take a holiday card photo at Seacliff State Beach last weekend.

Friday, a State Parks ranger told McGhee and at least two other holiday card photographers they were breaking the law by shooting photos in front of the pier at the state beach without a permit. The ranger stopped short of ticketing the photographers, but McGhee, a longtime Seacliff resident and professional photographer who regularly shoots at area beaches, said the interaction left [him] and his relatives confused.

For grinches in cold, snowy places this holiday season, that’s probably for the best.
