While there may be beauty along the path – if you make it to the end of the path, oftentimes the most beauty will be found there…waiting for you. From a little noticed garden just north of where we live – such a scene of serenity. I certainly was not expecting anything this beautiful when I first visited the Descanso Gardens in La Canada Flintridge, California.
One of my favorite fall road trips has to include Yosemite National Park. I think you can see why…
So far this week we’ve journeyed up the California coast, relaxed at Huntington Beach, paid tribute to “Red the Dragonfly” with his image in my header, and even faced a visual challenge (congratulations to “Allthoughtswork” for correctly guessing the image as a dandelion seed pod). Here’s the original:
And here is a black and white treatment of the same image:
I leave you with this image of Long Beach, California. This is one of our favorite beach bike rides, however this image was actually captured from the deck of the Queen Mary (you have to go there if you get the chance).
Have a good weekend everyone!
For those of you who have been following me for a while, you may know the answer to this question. But to all of you who are somewhat new, this one’s for you! And to those who have been here for a while, well…go ahead, give it a guess!
I call this “Color Fantasia.” But, what is it?
No clues…just yet. Thoughts? Guesses?
Now you may be asking, “I get California Coast – Day 2.” But what is this??
Well since the California coast was completely fogged in for the entire coastal trip this year, I decided to post my image from a trip we made 5 years ago. So, this would be California Coast Day -1834.
This is the famous Bixby Bridge in Big Sur.
Let me help you with this very surreal image of the Huntington Beach Pier. This image was captured following an evening storm. Because of that storm, the beach was eerily quiet and yet surprisingly soothing.
Don’t you think?
So if you need to relax, pull up a chair and listen to the gentle waves lapping at the shoreline.
