Larain Matheson stopped on a trip down the coast to photograph this lovely sight through her windshield. You can see the Russian River entering the Pacific Ocean. And the headlands are draped in fog.
Highway One, with it's curves and cliffs, can be scary for some to drive. Many of us who live on the Mendonoma coast just resolve to take our time and enjoy the beautiful vistas.
This afternoon we are getting a little rain. As it hasn't rained in February before today, we are grateful for any wet stuff Mother Nature gives.
Thanks to Larain for allowing me to share her photo with you here.
Richard Kuehn recently photographed the Bald Eagle pair that has been seen by the Russian River in Jenner with the Pacific Ocean behind them.
Perhaps these two majestic eagles will join me in wishing you a Happy New Year!
Thanks to Rich for allowing me to share his photo with you here.
It's a lovely sight to see the sun setting at Jenner. Earlier this month Paul Brewer caught the reflection of the sunset in the Russian River, and you can see the town of Jenner on the right. Just beautiful.
Today we are having rain...lots and lots of rain. Mushrooms are appearing as if by magic. It's a special time on the Mendonoma coast.
Thanks to Paul for allowing me to share his photo with you here. To see much more of Paul's nature photography, here is the link to his website: http://www.capturingnatureswonders.com/
Zak Rudy was at Jenner recently, which is at the mouth of the Russian River. I'll let him tell the story.
“After making one strike and coming up empty, this Bald Eagle returned to find his breakfast. He was fishing just south of Jenner along the river.
“Notice how much initial loft the bird gets, but he has to grab the fish by its back. Then, in one motion, the eagle flips the large fish upside down so he can carry it by the soft belly, truly a remarkable and risky feat. The fish tail drops back in the water, but he was beautifully triumphant in the end!”
And here the Bald Eagle eats its meal.
Thanks to Zak for a very interesting story and for sharing his photos with us here.
Michael Alexander recently took this photo of Goat Rock and the Russian River. High surf is pouring over the beach into the river. Dangerous, yet so beautiful.
Here is one of my favorite photos of the village of Jenner, taken by Rozann Grunig at sunset.
