  1. Such peace with your photos, Jane. Very soothing to review, and the photo of “Limpets and rocks” is my favorite ~ I could look at it forever and still find a different way to see it. And also, to me, the California Quail is one of the more beautiful birds out there, it is an excellent shot.

  2. Another beautiful set … well-seen and composed! I especially love all the texture, tones and feeling of movement in Fence and Sea. Your last image, Moon Over Sea Ranch has a lovely soft and peaceful quality.

  7. What a spot to relax in! The California coast is overwhelming in scope and you must know some of the best places. I’m not familiar with Sea Ranch so I googled it – and now I want to go there, of course. πŸ˜‰
    You know I love those limpets! They make (no, I guess you made!) a masterful composition on that striated rock, it’s beautiful. And who could not love the quail family? We see them around here every now and then, but not often enough. The warm and cool tones in “Dunes” are eye-catching – that image really makes me want to be there! (There’s something about the bending dune grass, footsteps in the sand, and distant shoreline that really tugs). The row of cypress trees with one person is another image that makes me want to see the place in person. In the last photo, the soft outlines and muted colors work beautifully to convey a quiet, content mood.

    • Hi Lynn, Gee, I could’ve sworn I answered your wonderful response. πŸ™‚ You would go crazy with your camera here between the landscapes and the intimate nature moments. It’s so peaceful, yet dynamic. Sea Ranch is well known for its cypress rows – that’s Bob strolling in them. Check out a local Sea Ranch photographer, Paul Kozal, whom I admire – I think you would like his work. Thanks so much! πŸ™‚

  13. What a gorgeous area, Jane! I had to look it up on Google maps! I think those CA quail made their way to Washington πŸ™‚ This time of year must be spectacular without the summer fog. I think my daughter visits there often (from Mountain View). Have a wonderful week!

  22. Great photos, Jane. My family used to go up to Sea Ranch from the Bay Area and stay at a vacation rental on the cliffs. It’s been years now. Maybe time to return!

    • That’s wonderful, Angeline! What a great place for family time. They’ve held close to their original plan preserving open spaces and keeping development to a minimum. I’m glad these brought back good memories- thanks very much! 😊

    • Thank you, Peter. The Sea Ranch development has held close to the original concept of open natural spaces and environmentally friendly architecture. I was completely enamored with this Quail family running around together on the deck. Very cute!
