Capitola in February

Capitola, California

The view from Cliff Drive. Taken yesterday morning ( 18 February 2009 ) - as we get a three day break away from the rains that have fallen for the past two weeks. More rain is forecast for the weekend ahead - and desperately needed.

Dear Stephen, a wonderful composition - I always have such a difficult time in these types of areas finding something that works - but you did it here perfectly! I love the bright green grass and the composition is wonderful - Today was a beautiful day!

A strange image, Stephen. When giving it a first short look, the image appears to lean to the right... All lines leading slightly down here. Then when looking closer we realise that the horizon is perfectly level... Interesting!

just a fantastic composition - the lines of horizon, pier, and cliff edge with the vertical elements really adds interest. The colors and lighting is fantastic as well......

What a view. Sneaking in a quick glimpse of spring I see with the flowers in the foreground.

@Walter: The Pacific Coast from San Francisco to Monterey is a yellow explosion every mid February into early March. Every imaginable shade of yellow is fully represented.
