I love the spring flowers that are blooming at the beach. They're so different than the wildflowers, poppies and bluebells that are blooming in the hills. I find it so interesting to have so much diversity within just a few miles where I live.
We went to Bodega Bay this afternoon and it was lovely. Very comfortable temperature, a bit hazy, which is good for photos. I love the diffused light. I so appreciate where I live! Within minutes I can be at the beach, in the woods, in the city, out on the trails. The more I go out with my camera, the more I appreciate all the astounding nature there is all around me. I have lived in some very beautiful places in the Pacific Northwest and in Southern California, but here in the Bay Area, my breath is taken away regularly. I truly embrace the graceful beauty that surrounds me here and my heart is filled with inspiration with every exploration! <sigh>
