Looking out from the western edge of the North American Continent with the Pacific Ocean on the horizon, the sky often is filled with fantastical clouds. Sunlight reflecting on them or rays of sun streaking through them create lovely suffusions of natural light.
From late winter into spring the dune meadows turn into marshes which add another dimension of natural light to the scene.
Always there is the ocean, with dune grass highlighted at sunrise, light reflecting on powerful waves, and wind lifting spray to the skies.
Sunsets here are as varied as the weather and almost always spectacular! Thank you Amy for a lovely challenge. Anytime I get to showcase nature, I’m a happy camper!
Wishing everyone safe harbor, as we navigate onward. Please mask-up and stay safe.🐾

Lindy, your Dune Marsh picture is stunning. I also love the clouds scurrying through the sky in the first picture. They look like they are having such fun up there.
Loved the use of negative space. Great shots!
Stunning natural light selections, Lindy. I love the clouds that reflect the color of the sun. All are beautifully captured. The last one takes my breath away.
These are beautiful. The “Pink on Gray” reminds me of Courbet or Turner or maybe the Hudson River school of painting.
Beautiful beautiful. Love those skies.
I love these, especially the Dune Marsh sunset.
