Cali Coast~ Feb9 Sunset over Channel Islands National Park. The palms stand sentinel, with the setting sun. In daylight, people come to play. The vigilant palms, are happy now, with storms, and lots of rain. Cheers to you from the central California coast~ Share this:PocketPrintShare on TumblrEmailTweetgoodreadsLike this:Like Loading...

Grazie mille Eliza! დ
Gorgeous, Cindy! It’s so nice to see nature flourishing with the rains. Let’s hope it keeps up for the wildflowers!
Thank you Jane. There is another storm brewing. The superbloom should be superlative! დ
Very beautiful sunset photos, Cindy! ❤️☺️❤️
So appreciated. Thanks very much John დ
Your photos are so beautiful, Cindy! What a gorgeous area.
I love it because it is colder than further south and much less crowded, and of course, there are the islands. Thanks so much Lynette & be well my friend დ
So beautiful, Cindy!
So happy you think so Ally & cheers my friend დ
Those are fabulous shots. Especially the sunsets.
So appreciated Margaret. Thank you very much დ
Lovely shots of sunset Cindy. Thanks for sharing.
You are so welcome & I am happy you enjoyed დ
Thank you Timothy დ
GM Cindy, so tranquil… you are staying close to home, hope all is well at your end… sending warm hugs.. and a bit of the cool/fresh sometimes frigid Canadian air..
I love that Canadian air! Bring on some more. Yes, we are staying closer to home, watching and waiting, to plan our next moves დ
How beautiful. Sun, sand and the oceat…what’s not to love.
It definitely works for me, especially since the drought is now easing. Take good care Gigi დ
One of my favorite places!
We are in perfect accord დ
So pleased you enjoyed & cheers to you Alex დ
So beautiful 😍
Grazie Cathy! დ
For a moment –when I read ‘Cali Coast– I thought your spectacular photos were of Cali, a beautiful city in Colombia…. But I quickly thought: “Cali has no sea, although it is very close to the Pacific Ocean. Could it be possible that Cindy has worked the miracle of creating one, just to have an idilic scenery for her portentous camera…? 🙂
Laughing…. The real Cali is stunning as is all of Columbia. If I could, I would beam over there now and take some photos for you! დ
The Cali cost definitely offers a variety of beauties. I love the color gradients in the sky at sunrise and sunset … thanks for capturing them.
You are so welcome Frank. Thank you for your Zen like videos. I love them დ
Absolutely gorgeous, Cindy!
Aww…. so appreciated! Cheers to you both დ
Beautiful shots. The sunset ones are probably my favorites, but all beautiful!
So happy you enjoyed Brian & thank you for letting me know! დ
Splendida natura da mare in tutte le sue incredibili forme
Grazie per la tua premura mia cara amica Silvia დ
Sono meravigliosi i tuoi articoli, è bellissimo sorfermarvici
Next time you should come visit us at the Studio. Send me a email and I’ll send you the address. These pictures are my backyard. Beautiful pictures BTW.
That would be so much fun! Thank you for the invite. I could do a post on your work დ
Sure you could. Lots to see here at the studio.
Grazie mille დ
You are most welcome 🦋
Wow ! Cindy, such beauty.
Much appreciated Leslie & be well my friend დ
Großartige Bilder !
Vielen danke mein leiber Freund Marie დ
Even in the rainy weather this beautiful place is looking optimistic. Sun does not leave it for a long time. Enjoy your time, Cindy!
Thank you Alexander & take good care my friend დ
Beautiful shots, Cindy. Let’s hope Mother Nature continues to provide the necessary balance needed to keep it thriving.
Yes. This rain has literally saved the state. We still have lost millions of trees dying though დ
Just gorgeous, Cindy!
Thank you Dale & take good care დ
This looks like a glorious place to spend some time in!
Yes. Indeed. Beautiful and uncrowded დ
Beautiful Cindy…. That sunset, just beautiful <3
Awww…. Thanks so much Sue & cheers my friend დ
Merci beaucoup mon Ami Alethea დ
That was you flying in the sky, wasn’t Cindy!!! I wonderful collection of sunset photography. Thank you.
This flying guy had a fan strapped to his back, connected to a milk-jug of gasoline, and powered himself up and down the coast! Amazing, and definitely not me! 😉
Always a peaceful and uplifting experience to see your photos. Thanks
So appreciated! Thank you Dan & cheers დ
I read a post today on meditation for people who can’t meditate and it recommended allowing yourself to be awed by nature, which is what your blog does so well.
Awww…. Thank you. Nature is a healing tonic for our hearts and minds დ
Wow! I thought you were on the Pacific coast of Columbia, SA.
Gorgeous, thanks for the stunning shots, Cindy!
Probably because I have traveled so much in South America…. but I am Cali born and raised დ
I used to live in California, near Healdsburg and Santa Rosa when I was a kid. Thanks for bringing back some good memories. We visited the ocean every once in a while, and I miss the feeling I had watching in amazement at God’s creation.
What a coincidence! My daughter lived in Santa Rosa. Such a lovely part of the state დ
They do have a beautiful coast! Makes me wish I could put my toes in that sand.
I love this area because it is much less crowded than the beaches further south დ
Yes! My thoughts exactly!
The West Coast is so stunning! 😍 I will forever be a West Coast gal myself.
You and me both. No wonder we understand each other! დ
What wonderful pictures, what a wonderful landscape. Thank you for showing us.
Thank you more for your kind appreciation Ute & be well my friend დ
Standing sentinel. Lovely.
Thank you Sheila & be well დ
Grazie mille Sheree დ
The sunsets are so beautiful! My son-in-law in San Diego sends me similar ones.
Your son and I are neighbors! დ
A beautiful land dear lady, and even its sunsets highlight it 😀❤️🙏🏽
Smiling… Thank you very much Mark დ
Just a beautiful place. My wife and I once took the boat over to the channel island and just loved it.
Yes, the islands are truly incredible. We were just there to visit again, but the waves stopped the boat. We have a trip planned for spring to the outer islands which I am so looking forward to. We have never been to the more distant islands დ
The palm trees reminds me of Bangladesh. We loved drinking the coconut water when we were there. I liked the fresh coconut too. Those were the days we thought will never end, they did end and we are keeping those precious memories in our heart and mind. 🙂
Those sound like precious memories. I am so sorry they had to come to an end. I hope all is well with you dear friend დ
Goodness, quite the time for California, huh! I always miss it some. You’re sure not shy about color (ever). A nice attribute. And love the “big” coastal pictures that I can expand, then expand again – makes the adventure bigger.
You likely heard about the poppy super bloom. Even visible from space! Plus Big Sur has become an island (again) – one of my favorite parts of the state (is that a shameless hint?).
Is the poppy blooming now? That’s early. I hear Borrego is blooming too, which is also early. We plan to go see the superbloom, but the timing is trickier this year. There is one more storm in the forecast. If it hits, the bloom will be incredible. Big Sur is without parallel. They had a lot of slides, so I am not sure how the roads are now. We were there in the fall დ
I think my news is current, but then I don’t have the best of relationship with time. Couldn’t resist doing some images for the blooms myself. But you go check because some areas were restricting access because of overcrowding in the past.
Yes. I just read this morning. Don’t worry about time, it’s apparently an illusion.
Beautiful place Cindy !
Thank you. It grows on you დ
We have the best palm trees! Lovely photos.
YES! We do. You make me smile დ
Aww thank you Cindy! You make me smile too and so happy when you comment with your sweet words.
Ahh catifornia vibes! Love it! ♡(ﾐ ᵕ̣̣̣̣̣̣ ﻌ ᵕ̣̣̣̣̣̣ ﾐ)ﾉ
Herbert The Cat appreciates your cateligence. He is a naive Catifornian and recognizes you have your hierarchies in proper order დ
Herbert The Cat is too sweet. Lol! ^.ᆽ.^= ∫💕💕💕🌈
So happy you enjoyed Graham & cheers to you დ
C’est très joli et cela donne envie d’y être !!
Merci! J’aimerais pouvoir te faire venir maintenant დ

A good record of a span of time
Thank you for noticing Derrick & cheers to you and Jackie დ
Thanks a lot from us both, Cindy
Gorgeous captures. This looks like paradise.
So appreciated! Cheers to you & thank you დ
How beautiful! Would love to be there!
Have a fine weekend, and stay safe, dear Cindy.
Another great post, Cindy! Love the “standing sentinels” watching the cycles of life!
Thanks so much! You expressed this beautifully. Trees do this don’t they? They stand sentinel “over the cycles of life.”
I wish I could beam you over here right now Martha! You stay safe too my friend დ
Nice scenery. Wish that I lived closer to an ocean.
I can emphathize and understand დ
Gorgeous photos Cindy that make me want to visit the beach. I love the contrast of the palms in the first two sunset images.
I appreciate your thoughtful perceptiveness very much Brad დ
I love the palm trees at sunset — they’re stunning! But that photo of the beach warms me to the core! I’m seriously in need of walking in sand along a sunny beach.
I understand perfectly Debbie. Walking in the sand on a sunny beach is soothing to the soul დ
The scenes are beautiful, especially those sundown colors!
Merci beaucoup mon Ami Lavinia დ
Those palm silhouettes do remind me of southern California specifically, although I’m sure you can find them in other places too. Nice sunsets. 🙂
Palms are iconic of sands, sea and sun. So happy you enjoyed them Dave & cheers დ
Beeaauuttiiful! Sigh (of fantasizing).
I wish I could beam you and Murph over now! 😉
We’d appreciate that, make it so : )
Will do in a momentito, just looking now for Mister Sulu…….
I love the sunset images.
Thank you Hank დ
Happy you enjoyed them & thank you დ
Very pleased you think so & cheers to you დ
Cindy, thank you for brightening my day with these beautiful photographs!
Thank you more Charles for brightening my day with your kind thoughtfulness & be well my friend დ

Absolutely gorgeous, Cindy. I haven’t yet made it to California, but someday.
Thank you Carla. So appreciated & take good care დ
Would be nice to walk along this quiet and empty beach, listen the waves whispering or roaring, and enjoy these lovely views.
Yes. It is especially lovely in winter when it is so empty. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week დ
So gorgeous! Those palms!! 👌🏻
Thank you my friends & be well დ
Amazing palms 🌴 ❤️ And beautiful skies😀
I’d send you some California sunshine but it’s been raining for months now! 😉
“Rain, rain, go away! Come again on washing day!” 😂
You’ve really captured the feeling of California in these images. The richness of those first three photos is remarkable!
So appreciate your appreciation Bridgette & cheers to you! დ
