Week 22: Backlit

The September sun coming from the west across the Pacific Ocean provided a stunning backlight for these wildflowers on the Monterey Peninsula seacoast. Their graceful long stems bending with the wind didn’t hurt their photogenic value, either!

Week 21: Rocky Waterscapes

The Pacific Ocean meets the rocky shore of the Monterey Peninsula in California. While the drama of the rugged coast was not lost on my camera, I chose this close up to meet the goal of Rocky Waterscapes, as I liked the two forms of nature coming together, but remaining separate.

Week 19: Fences and/or Rails

On a recent trip to California, we discovered the most quaint little place called Pacific Grove on the Monterey Peninsula. Deer roam on the front yards and the homes seem right out of the mid-20th century, not that they are of a “modern” design so much as it feels like you are in a bit of a time warp. This fence might be out of place in my deed-restricted neighborhood, but in Pacific Grove, it is right at home.
