The coast between Stewart’s Point and Salt Point is mostly private land and isn’t really accessible, at least not without trespassing. I’m always intrigued by this stretch of coast just south of Sea Ranch as we drive past it on our many trips “over the hill.” It seems more desolate, more isolated than most. So I spent a little time a few weeks ago during a rather overcast afternoon to try and capture the “mood” of this piece of coastline. It was a perfect day to reveal the quiet solitude of this area as I saw it in my mind’s eye. The subtle colors, muted by the overcast sky felt right to me. Even the profuse monkey flower shrub in the second image couldn’t quite break the overall mood of the day. But a day, any day, along this coast is a beautiful day, at least it is to me.
P.S. I shot these images from the road’s shoulder, and didn’t trespass: not a big fan of the trespass. Neither are the local ranchers.
