A panorama of great beauty to this Saturday morning. Today we see the sky ... Today we do a portrait of the sea and its coastline full of flowers. Today is the light and color mixed. A work of art in itself! A pleasure to watch warm and beautiful. Nature in all its splendor. Thank you very much friend Jack! Muchos besos! Adela

The spot of yellow in the waves is curiously beautiful. And the vivid blue flowers trick they eye and the photograph seems to become something else. Motion everywhere in this lovely work.

The wildflowers make a fine foreground element in this fine shot of the surf's action. Nice one.

I love the panoramic crop for this view. The little purple flowers in the foreground adds a wonderful colourful effect to the whole view.

k@ from Paris, France

It's not flowers by the wild sea, it's sea by wild flowers we should say sometimes like here !

22 May 2010 10:48pm

@k@: The original photo had lots of sea, but I wanted the focus of attention to be the flowers; so I cropped out most of the sea.

Wow, I have to visit there again and take a better look...your ocean and flower colors are so vivid. Inspiring.

@Dulcie: It is a fabulous place. I've never seen such a diversity and abundance of wildflowers on the headlands as this year.

Susan from Fort Lauderdale, FL, United States

Saturation works's my little tale.....on the flight out to San Fran, there was a lovely little story in the airplane mag about Mendocino......since the whole trip was going to be whatever "I" wanted to do, I decided it'd be fun to drive up to Mendocino from San Fran on our first full day.....little did I realize that it was basically an all day trip, up and back, and a lot of it, on roads where I had my eyes covered, and my "driver" got a huge kick out of the fact that I'd wanted to take the "beautiful ride", and then was chicken to look out over the edge for most of it!!! And the other bad news was, my good old 35mm cam decided it wasn't happy being in california, so it basically punked out on me!!! That was about 7 years ago, and I'm planning on making him bring me back there again, soon.....
