  1. I googled ice plant. I have never heard of it before. They did not look like what you are showing. What is an ice plant?

  5. That Point Reyes cove photograph is beautiful, Jane. Yum! 🙂 It’s fun seeing the pelicans, too, and I really like the narrow format of the Point Reyes Hiker photo. It breaks up the set very nicely. Ice Plant Party is a fun ending to the set – a surprise party! Happy coastal exploring to you, whenever and wherever!

  10. I like the words of Ansel Adams very much. And you must already KNOW how I love color. Thank you for reminding me of the north coast palette. We got to watch pelicans at play yesterday. It was an amazing outing.

    • Thanks, Gunta. I do know! 🙂 And this part of the coast with the ice plant and succulents in full bloom, it is a burst of color. How great that you saw pelicans- they are very calming. Hope all is well up north. Hot as can be in So Cal.

  19. These pictures are fantastic. I love that quote by Elizabeth Bishop – it really hit me. I don’t read a lot of poetry, so I didn’t recognize the name, but promptly looked her up and see how accomplished she was. Also, I’m so glad you identified the ice plant because I had never seen them before and was struck by how different and beautiful they are. Thanks for posting these!

  24. Is it possible to feel homesick for a place you’ve only visited, but never lived? 😉

  26. Wonderful series of California coast. I like all the pictures of Point Reyes including your posts previously. Many years ago we tried to tour the area only to find out, once we got there, it we all covered with fog! We’ll have to go back there when we visit sf next time.

  30. Love this post, Jane. I am particularly struck by the abstraction of Soaring.

  31. The Ansel Adams quotation is doubly interesting because his notion of images lapsing into silence would mean a stilling not only of photography but of his earlier love, classical music.
