After all the stillness and pond-floating of my two previous posts, let’s have a little excitement! In this image, Pacific Ocean waves crash forcefully over a rock shelf in La Jolla, California.
Waves crash forcefully into a rock formation off the California coast year after year with no visible effects. Strong and firm, the rocks remain trusted seaside monuments. To see all the other images in today’s monochrome challenge, go to Leanne Cole’s blog.
This fanciful serpent created by metal sculptor, Ricardo Breceda, goes in and out of the sand and across a road in Anza Borrego Desert Park in California. There are over 100 metal sculptures in the park, all created by Breceda and most representing prehistoric or mythical creatures.
The sunset was warm and glowing at this popular hiking trail near home in Southern California.
I’ve been traveling a bit, so my posts have been spotty. This image is from my trip to Death Valley in December. It is one of my favorites. I’ve brought along some photos for you on my trip and will post when time permits.
I am very oriented towards sunset photography and that works out well living close to the Pacific Ocean and its gorgeous sunsets. However, on this morning a friend and I met before dawn to go to this beach. It was hard to find in the dark. Even though the beach is public, the stairway down is tucked away between two cliffside homes.
This is a younger and much smaller sibling of the crater featured in my previously post, both lying in Death Valley, California.
