Journey of a body on this earth

Perspective on Nature


I cannot help myself….the coast attracts me like no other place.  Perhaps because it’s accessible to me or perhaps it’s because I was a seaman (or seawoman) in a past life!  All I know is that I love it.   🙂

This was taken at Drake’s Beach which is part of the Point Reyes National Seashore.  What an amazing area with so much wildlife and beauty to behold that I can never tire of it.

There is something about our rocky coast that makes me aware of how small we human beings really are and I love how it magnifies the incredible majesty of Mother Nature.

  1. This is such a great shot, I love that you have people in the image I am guessing that are mostly Photographers, but it really makes it such an interesting image to look at.

  2. Truly lovely photo, Laura.

  3. lovely Laura, I feel the same way about the coast, I just wished I lived a little closer. It has a pull, can’t be explained, but if you feel it, you understand it

  4. It looks so 1920’s and yet so today….

  5. I don’t blame you, I’d be at the beach too. Beautiful photo, love the tone.

  6. This is beautiful. The beach looks like a desert :O Those rocks look gorgeous. All rough and rugged 😀

  7. This is gorgeous Laura. I love the tones.

  8. Great photo Laura, I love the sea too 😀

  9. Love the textures, the tones, the sheer scale of the place!

  10. Beautiful shot Laura…I have always lived near a body of water, so I don’t think too much about it…however when family comes in from the West, one of the first places they want to go is the ocean. Enjoy your coastal proximity!

  11. this shot is just delicious

  12. How neat to see other photographers lined up to get the scenery!!! Breathtaking … out of this world breathtaking! I LOVE the coast too but we have nothing like this here. We have such a beautiful coastline but sadly a lot of it holds empty, ugly factories or warehouses from when Buffalo was a bustling harbor city. If the coastline would be cleaned up …. if only!!! That takes money and as we all know, money has been cut in all the wrong places. Geesh, did I ever get sidetracked. LOL Back to your image! AWESOME and POWERFUL!!!! Thank you, Laura!!! ❤

    • I’m so glad you see the powerful aspect of the coastline here in this image. I love love our rocky coast! And this isn’t even that rocky really. I like how the rocks are sheared. Thank you Amy! 🙂

  13. Gorgeous shot Laura, love the monotone conversion and the light on the cliffs and wispy clouds

  14. Really love the peaceful tones along with the lovely scenery. Very beautiful!

  15. Truly gorgeous Laura . Nothing beats the coast 😉

  16. This is unbelievably breathtaking!! 👌🏻

  17. I live in San Francisco, and your gorgeous photos are of all my favorite places. ( We really have to thank Philip Burton and many others for saving this coastline for us. It could have been full of condominiums. ) I don’t get out to Drake’s Beach often enough, and your photo is enough to inspire me to make the trip as soon as possible. I wish I could buy all of your photos!!!.

    • Oh that’s right. I think you mentioned you could see the GGB before? How convenient to live there. When I lived there I didn’t take photos. But heck, I’m just glad I’m still in the Bay Area so I can photograph all these amazing places! Thank you so much Carol.

  18. There is something that is truly special about walking along the ocean lost in your thoughts, listing to the waves hit the beach, and feeling the salt air on your face.

  19. I saw this on fb the other day and I have to tell you – this and your surfer girl shots are my favourite EVER shots of yours. Love those tones ..and so beautifully composed. A stunning view. Really gorgeous Laura!
