Things have been so hectic lately, I haven’t had time to post photos I took in California, and that was a month ago.
Although we were on the go constantly, we did manage one walk on the beach at “golden hour” just before the sun was setting.
It was a week day, so the beach was pretty empty, but we enjoyed the peace and quiet.
Truly my favorite time of day to shoot at the beach (or anywhere). The plants in the foreground are ice plant (a ground cover that resists fire) and sea lavender.
A close-up of sea lavender. It’s also called statice and is in the plumbago family, not related to lavender at all. Grows really well in sand, as you can see.
I have no idea what this is, but it makes me think of the Tin Man.
Doesn’t the sand look like leather here? I was shooting with my iPhone, so the light was tricky.
The sun pretty much stayed in the clouds, but it was still a lovely sunset.
I have two more posts on Kauai, Hawaii, and hope to get to them soon. . . .
