No Shadow This Time

Posted by

Looking pretty tiny in this setting, here's that woman from yesterday, and her boyfriend, who both scaled down some considerably rocky cliffs to get to this spot on a secluded Bodega Head beach. They did it in flip-flops and sandals, which was an amazingly daring and IMO foolish thing to do. But none the worse for the wear, they were happily exploring this hardly touched spot. I didn't stay long enough to see if they made it back up in their flip-flops and sandals. But it would be a long way up, and steep, for sure...

This is funny ... here they are, risking life and limb to get to a little secluded beach and the VF paparazzi is exposing them to the public. <big grin>
Your image definitely shows the ruggedness and scale; good one, Glenn.

There is something about the rocky coast protruding out of the sand and ocean that inspires me. Places like this.
I like how the water washes up around the huge rock formation.
The scale is an illusion until I see those two adventurers in flip flops. They are probably discussing how they will get back up.

Good capture, Glenn - this really reveals the scale of their efforts. I'm so happy you got some decent weather during your coastal explorations here.

Nice shot! The people give a sense of the immense scale of this scene.

This certainly gives the landscape scale! And it's a wonderful composition, Glenn.
