Sometimes when I look out our windows I almost can't believe what I'm seeing. That's how I felt this morning at the stunning sunrise.
If you look closely, you will see the lights of a fishing boat out near the horizon. The colors of this sunrise only lasted for a few minutes. But isn't it beautiful? I love how the Pacific Ocean glows with the reflected colors.
A while later this morning fog enveloped our house. You just never know what will happen next on the Mendonoma Coast!
Paul Brewer photographed the beautiful sunset from the banks of the Gualala River. You can see the river is currently closed to the Pacific Ocean by the sandbar. Past the sandbar is the ocean.
Mike Nelson also photographed Sunday's sunset from the beach at Gualala Point Regional Park. The colors of the sunset can sometimes make the ocean look purple, a lovely sight.
Thanks to Paul and Mike for allowing me to share their photos with you here. To see much more of Paul's nature photography, here is the link to his website: http://www.capturingnatureswonders.com/
Beth Kattleman was in the right place at the right time to get this photo of two Does on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
That was a nice sunny day, which is how most of February has been here. But this afternoon it has begun raining - nice, big drops!
Thanks to Beth for allowing me to share her photo with you here.
Bob Rutemoeller photographed the Gualala River and the Pacific Ocean meeting.
You can see the Gualala River is muddy from all the storms. The ocean is coming over the sandbar and entering the river at its mouth. It's endlessly fascinating to watch this river and its interplay with the ocean!
Thanks to Bob for allowing me to share his photo with you here.
When storms are headed our way, the Pacific Ocean becomes more active and big waves crash against sandy beaches and rocky bluffs. Sometimes the ocean mist will travel all the way up the bluffs and over Highway One. Gary Levenson-Palmer photographed the mist at Manchester Beach.
Thanks to Gary for allowing me to share his beautiful photo with you here.
