Eventide- 18

Cloudy, yet beautiful!

Stinson beach, California, was cloudy on that day.
Still waited to witness the glorious phenomenon of sunset.

Couldn’t get the dipping orange ball and I had to be satisfied with the sunset glow on the clouds.

Sharing a few of those scenes here.

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.

Eventide- 12

Sunset from hilltop

Sundown as viewed from Diablo Mountain (California) viewpoint was enchanting.

Though the evening was a bit hazy with mist, I could get lovely view of the magnificent moment!!

These pictures were captured with P & S cam sometime back.

Sundown at Point Reyes

These shots were taken at the Point Reyes National Park, California. Very cool evening breeze making it so very enjoyable .

A clear sky made it possible to capture the dipping orange ball, till it disappeared into the vast expanse of the ocean, leaving an etherial afterglow!

Sundown at Santa Cruz, California

These sundown moments were captured at Santa Cruz, West Cliff Drive, Natural Bridges State Beach, California.

The only grievance…. I couldn’t get the view through the natural bridge arches.
