Landscape- 4

Costal Landscape of Santa Cruz

Are these landscape pictures or seascape? Let us say, ‘Costal landscape’.

These shots were captured near Natural Bridges State Beach and Park, Santa Cruz, California. Natural Bridges State Beach is named for the Natural arch in the huge rock located in the shore break here. This is one of the most photographed beach icons in the state of California.

The coastline is characterized by Ice plant-blanketed (a succulent) cliffs, sandy coves, and rocky marine terraces.
Birds congregate on these rocks for rest and hunting for prey.

The rock in the picture shows a sideview of the Natural arch.

A Glimpse of Sri Lanka

Nuwara Eliya is the tea-producing highlands of Sri Lanka.
The British officials of the erstwhile Ceylon settled in this picturesque land and developed townships as the climate suited them with cold and misty temperate ambience.

The landscape is so beautiful with lush green tea gardens, many waterfalls and thick forests.

Nuwara Eliya means “City on the plain (table land)” or “City of light”.
