This was taken from a viewpoint just north of Crescent City, California, U. S. A., There’s a lighthouse out there somewhere, since the rocks in this area present a major hazard to navigation. The most notable shipwreck was the Brother Jonathan, which came to grief on these rocks in July of 1865. This picture was taken at about 6:00 in the evening, while the sun was setting into the North Pacific Ocean. The warm tones of the picture are deceiving, because the month was November, and a bitter wind was blowing out of the northwest.

    Stunning, Dave!

  • Thanks, Karen. My 10-year-old granddaughter accompanied me on that excursion. I took pictures and she collected seashells.

    BEAUTIFUL work

  • Thanks, Larry. It was a cold day, but well worth the 20-minute walk down to the beach from the parking lot.
