Quickly the week does proceed… Jen Hooks asks us – this week – to visualize pure. I equate pure to simple… everyone has something that comes to mind. Gladly, we all think differently and the outcome is an interesting world in which to live.
I love the ocean. The sound, the smell of salt, spray in the air, surf to tumble in and pure sunrises or sunsets, depending on your proximity to water, unadorned by buildings or trees or other inanimate objects. Here are a few Pacific sunset shots that were a pure joy to watch transpire.
I also enjoy the pure simplicity of nature in finding ways replicate and spread. The thistledown (seed) is tiny. Carried by the wind or finches who love the small size of the seed, the thistle finds a way to spread its wings and fly.
Thanks Janet… some of the best moments in life… watching the old Sun dip quickly into the sea.
Gorgeous photos ❤
Suvi, thanks… it’s a lovely setting. Easy to get beautiful photos.
These photos bring pure joy just viewing them so I am sure in person it was even more so. Love your photos!
Thanks so much… It’s a great place to go… two good restaurants face the beach and my favorite wine bar is just around the corner.
Leya, nothing like a lovely sunset to bring peace to the end of a day.
Beautiful. It seems we go often into nature to discover what’s pure. 🙂
Nomad… so true, so true. It’s one way of finding your way back when the path gets overgrown with 21st Century living.
Psst, I’ve got some great water front property in Jersey you may be interested in…ooops, just got carried away hehe. By-the-way, love those pictures of the ocean, sun, and beach and even that wild flower..well, not so much nevertheless, great pictures!
Thanks, but no… I grew up in Jersey! Much easier on my system to photograph sunsets. Sunrises happen do darn early! 🙂
Wow what wonderful photos and scenes~pure beauty!
Thanks… Lucky to be able to share them with you.
My old turf…used to live in Half Moon Bay.
Was there over Memorial Weekend… such a nice place to visit. Had lunch in the San Benito Ale House. Only problem was traffic… reeeeaaaally heavy.
One of the reasons we moved to Reno! I worked at UCSF–not a fun commute.
Thanks… it was easy… I just stood there and watched! 😉
Very, very nice. So inspiring. Fresh.

No worthy human doubts the purity of a sunset, yet we tend to avoid ‘knowing’ why we find it so beautiful, the picture explaining more than words could ever do..
