  1. Amazing views and great pictures, Jane! But my favorite here is “Tree Tunnel Walker”. Love it! Have a nice week… 🙂
    Warm regards, Heidi

    • Hi Heidi, Some of my favorite spots along the CA coast…so pleased to take you there. 🙂 The Cypress Tree Tunnel is a very cool spot that I drove right by for a long time before discovering it! Thanks very much and hope all is well with you. 🙂

  2. I feel like I am in a convertible going for a ride with you along the Cali coast —
    Fun!

  3. Okay, now I am extremely homesick! Oh Jane, living on the central coast of California for almost 20 years, I know these sights from our travels so well. My author FB header shows me looking out over Montana de Oro with the same rocky terrain and pristine skies. After the ‘Beast from the East meets Storm Emma’ blizzard raging through the West Country of England this past week, your photos are a joy to behold and a promise of the spring to come to our colder climes. But I am desperate to return to California for a visit…time to dust off the passport 😉

    • Hi Sherri, I see that you raised your children in CA so many of my posts will be familiar to you. I’m glad I warmed your heart a bit and brought back some good memories. I hope the storms have passed in England and that all is well there. Thanks so much for your kind comments and for being connected here. 🙂

      • Thank you so much Jane, you have indeed 🙂 The storms have now passed – at least in our southern parts, not so much in Scotland, as is the norm! It is a pleasure to find you and your blog, thank you so much for visiting mine and taking the time to connect at the Summerhouse. I am always delighted to meet someone from California, my other home 🙂

  4. Stunning scenery so beautifully captured, I like the way the people in the images, though very small, are not ‘lost’ Brian

  5. I so enjoyed these photos of the California coast, Jane. I live on this coast so you highlighted all of my favorites here, what a treat!

  6. Outstandingly beautiful captures from your coastline, Jane. It’s very hard to pick a favourite here. 🙂
    Wishing you a lovely evening,
    Dina

  7. Wonderful photos of the coastline, the colours are jewel-like.

  8. Spectacular images Jane. Thanks for sharing them. Have a great week.

  9. Beautiful, Jane. I especially love the b&w shots. Looks like you had a great week. 🙂

  10. Such stunning and astonishing pictures of the California coast, Jane! When would it be the best time of the year to explore this place?

  11. Those tiny figures put the grandeur of nature into perspective. Beautiful images Jane

  12. Hi Jane, I am currently using my email to read and comment on wp-posts and blogs. I’m finding it very handy to be able to read and comment directly, without leaving, my email.I have noticed and apologies if you already know this, that you used more than 15 categories and tags, (In total). If you use more than 15 your posts won’t show up in the wp-reader. Which will, therefore, deny any new readers from discovering your beautiful photography.I also noticed that you only display short word snippets via your feed, which is what I then see in my emails. No problem if that’s your wish. I just thought I’d mention it because it means that I can’t see anything from your post without going to your site. Everyone has their own preference. Have a great day. Amanda 🙂

  13. Gorgeous photos, Jane. I particularly love the Tree Tunnel Walker with its a almost suggestive composition. Where I am we are far from any spring feeling. It snowed once again this morning, but I don’t mind. I like snow. 🙂

    • Hi Otto, Hmmm, hadn’t thought about that in the composition…perhaps you are right. 🙂 Glad I brought some warmth to your day and that you enjoyed the tiny people landscapes.Thank you. I do miss the beauty of snow, but not having to get around in it!

  14. Jane, are you sure you didn’t people your photos with tiny, tiny figurines? 😉 How wonderful to see how these nature folks are dwarfed: a good thing! I particularly love the meeting of man and nature in the Surfer & Inlet photo – the elements of water, sand, birds and man, the composition – it has such a nice feeling. I think I saw in Insta that you got away for a bit – great!

  15. Your nature photography is something extraordinary Jane. You are surrounded by equally beautiful nature. I’m always intrigued by your posts.

  16. what was the boy thinking???? GREAT photos….always dreamy!!! brilliant eye…..xo

  17. Aye Aye John. Love your your “River round through it photo in particular

  18. These are some of my absolute favourites, Jane. I love grand landscapes with people in them!

  19. Nature’s Wonders is very sweet. The red shoes and green pants make a wonderful contrast to the blues of the ocean and sky.

  20. Marvelous, as always. I’m sure you know that the coastal scenes are close to my heart and you do them so well.

  21. Nothing like a walk on the coast to restore your joy in nature’s beauty Jane. Beautiful landscapes

  22. Sigh. Well spring may have come (jealous. We got more snow), that surfer looks cold.

  23. I could spend hours walking up and down that tree tunnel, Jane! What a magnificent scene that is (amongst so many other magnificent scenes, I must add!)

  24. Such beautiful photographs, Jane, and I just love the quote by John Kay.
    Have a wonderful week ahead!

  25. Dwarfed by the majesty of nature. Beautiful photos, Jane!

  26. This moving series express both your internal harmony and natural spirituality and your perfect communion with Nature.

  27. What wonderful perspectives of the smallness of humanity in the face of overwhelming nature. I love every single one of these photos, and especially the last one.

  28. Beautiful, Jane, and I always love your quotes. We are so lucky to live in California!

  29. Don’t you wonder what was going through the little boy’s mind?

  30. A nice tour, Jane. The tree tunnel is one of my favorite spots in Pt. Reyes.
    Ω

  31. Jane, these are absolutely gorgeous as always. Oh how I love nature and the ocean! Beautiful!

  32. OH how I needed to see these pictures!!! Glorious! Oh yes Nature rejuvenates and HEALS. Thank you SO much for this post! Big sighs from New York …… 😉

  33. Beautiful landscapes, Jane! Miss my Oregon coast!! But the summer family vacation to the PNW is booked 🙂 !! Have a splendid Sunday! Marcus

  34. Thank you Jane, ….such pretty, bright pictures to see on a gloomy day in Kiawah!

  35. All lovely shots but Headland People resonated the most with me. It looks like an abstract painting. Only nature could arrange such gorgeous colors and design.

  36. ”Take nothing but pictures

    Kill nothing but time

    Leave nothing but footprints

    To show you came by.”

    ~John Kay

    A quote that says it all – together with your pictures. I am so happy that we, humans, are so small…but wish our impact on this Earth was just as small and insignificant.

  37. Just shows how tiny we are in the scheme of things, yet..our impact so huge. Wonderful series, Jane..the love for nature shows in these and so much of your work.

  38. Wonderful images by the coast. Lovely to hear some spring weather is here for you already. It must be enticing to go out know and take more photos 🙂 Love how you made the world so free, big and wild in your shots – great expanse of land and sea 🙂

  39. Stunning images capturing all the wonder and beauty, Jane!

Love to hear what you think...
