To the Ocean


I finally got a chance to get down to the coast today & thought I'd share a few pictures that I took while wandering around Point Loma.  


The tide was going out & I was happy to find this little cave in the cliff that would  otherwise be submerged on a high tide.


The colors & patterns on the cave wall were incredible. In artistic terms, I am not often drawn to the abstract, but in nature I am drawn to these abstract patterns time & time again. There is something about them that I just can't put my finger on, but i find them quite striking.


While the last photo doesn't really fit with the others, I enjoy the color, contrast & simplicity.


It was really nice to see the ocean & breathe the ocean air after many months away.

I know exactly what you mean about abstract patterns in nature, I really like them too. I think what's so great about them is the contradiction, they have an abstract appearence but are a natural, logical phenomonon...and so can do a painting of them that is abstract yet photorealistic at the same time. I like that sort of thing, gives one's art a nice twist.

Must be nice to breath the salty air instead of Santa Fe's smoke-filled air! Nice photos!
