  1. Beautiful images, so well paired with the quotes, Jane. A lovely mix of landscape and close ups. I’m not so good at macros so I have signed up for a workshop tomorrow. 😉

  2. Images and words to live for and by.

  3. These images really evoke a particular place, with the back and forth between the long and close views. On the Edge, Ant Life and Poppy Circle are some of my favorites here. That one seal on Seal Rock – so poignant, and Bottoms Up, what fun! You had a really good time, right? It looks like it.

    • HI Lynn, I am reviewing some posts and it seems I’ve missed your great comments a couple of times….apologies! They are always so thoughtful and I just want you to know how much I appreciate your responses seen with your keen eye for photography. Glad you enjoyed this series- thank you!

  4. Beautiful pictures. I love the quote by ~ Elliott Erwitt

  5. absolutely gorgeous Jane….quite breathtaking!!! your attention to detail is stunning!!

  6. Thanks for the tour of Timber Cove. I especially like the delicacy of Quaking and the perspective of Sunlight.

  7. Truly so beautiful, Jane.
    The light in each of these is simply magnificent.

  8. I appreciate your photos even more in the context of the quotations and I certainly appreciate: ” “All the technique in the world doesn’t compensate for the inability to notice.” ~ Elliott Erwitt

    An the your ability to notice most appreciated this time is the spider-ish plant cought in a crack!

  9. The first and last quotes are new to me – succinct and to the point. A beautiful gallery of images Jane.

  10. That first quote sends shivers, Jane! Glorious shots! I love Livingstone daisies, as we know them. 🙂 🙂

  11. Jane the ice plant with the glow is excellent. Fantastic light and the eye to see it.

  12. Amazing photos as always! Love the variety of flowers and plant life on this coast.

  13. Such a beautiful coast line captured in this series of beautiful images. And I totally agree with the Dorothea Lange quote.

  14. California is one of the most beautiful states.
    Your incredible photos do it very fine justice.

  15. They are all beautiful. “On the Edge” is simply elegant.

  16. Wonderful shots long Tinber Cove, Jane. Each one stunning and lots of variety as usual. Looks like a very colourful morning, and all of your photos are really vivid with colour. Enjoy the rest of summer and more days like these 🙂

  17. Hi Jane, it looks like a perfect day 🙂 This part of the USA is sooo beautiful and all your pictures are ful of westcoast-feeling and westcoast-light.

  18. On my laptop anyway, it’s the vibrant light that really comes through in these photos.

  19. What a beautiful place!! I love nature’s flower gardens…such rich colours and moody quality of the landscapes

  20. Loved this post…especially the little volunteer at the end. Always amazing to see how plants manage to emerge and grow in the sparest places.

  21. The first one is a powerful statesman, but a very true one! One question Jane, how do you get to Timber Cove?

  22. Stunning colours here Jane. Love them all!

  23. It’s a beautiful location and you do it proud! Difficult to pick a favorite, but it might be a tossup between the Poppy Circle and Bottoms up. They’re just so ‘elemental’!

    • Thank you, Gunta! Assume you’ve been? Glad you like those in particular- the rock formations had me going and all the plants and flowers hanging on the cliffs for dear life. 🙂 What a morning!

      • Not sure if I remember Timber Cove. It’s been many decades since I explored that general area, but the cliffs and plants and flowers all look quite familiar. I’ve been doing the hanging on rock formations and cliffs up in the woods lately. Pretty much the same heart pounding moments I suspect. Doesn’t help to have a fear of heights. Something I unfortunately developed in my later years.

        • Timber Cove is about 20 miles south of Sea Ranch. The drive notrh from Jenner is almost as heart-stopping as Big Sur in a few spots. Agree about heights– it got worse for me, too!

          • I did a lot of roaming up the coast north of San Francisco back in the early 70s (with my very first SLR). I can picture some breathtaking views up that way, but I just can’t put names to particular spots. I’m sure I’ve been through there though!

  24. I love these quotations. You have captured some very memorable images.

  25. Outstanding… what a great medley of photos!

  26. Creativity is your second name, I would say.

  27. Looks like you had a beautiful day, Jane. Thanks for sharing it with us.
    Ω

  28. Superb photos! The yellow poppies are extraordinary as always, those… On The Edge are practically a dream. 🙂 And in the Ant Life image, the ant looks tiny but so clear, without being too sharp, for a second it felt like right on my monitor here, not on the cute bud there, lovely feeling, such an image!

  29. These are incredible shots Jane and the colors practically pop off the page. Beautiful work 🙂

  30. Some beauties here Jane, looks like a wonderful spot and as always
    You’ve made the most of it. I did have to laugh out loud at Bottoms up” but I’m thinking you would have guessed that 😊😊

  31. More stunners Jane, my favorite ‘Reaching’ love backlit images.

  32. A wonderful set of photos Jane! Wow. ❤️

  33. So many different plants, all photographed so beautifully. I think I like Glow best, but it’s hard to tell. I loved them all.

    • Thanks so much, Rusha. I had a fascinating morning discovering all the flowers and plants along this stretch. The Ice Plant gives off such great colors– glad you like it. Appreciate your visit!

Love to hear what you think...
