Daylight Savings Time can only mean that Spring is on its way

Sunset at Black Point

Our bluffs here at Sea Ranch are beginning to show their colors, but are not quite in full bloom yet.  Daylight savings time always used to remind me as a kid growing up in Long Island that spring and summer were just around the corner.  So, I thought I’d post an image taken a few years ago from one of my favorite spring spots on the Ranch.  This is Black Point at sunset in May, and the bluff is completely awash in ice plant.  And for you locals, yes, yes, I know it’s an invasive species and not native to this area.  But without it, this image wouldn’t have quite the pop that it has.  You have to take beauty where you find it.

I thought I would share this image especially for my friends and family back on the East Coast who are experiencing a resurgence of winter right now.   Trust me, it will pass and the spring blooms will make winter feel like a distant memory.

Equipment: Nikon D3s; Nikkor 24-70 mm f2.8 lens (shot at 24mm), Oben Tripod

    Phil,
    Great picture. We are getting ready for the first big snow storm of the winter. I will look at this picture again when the snow starts blowing.
    All the best,
    Bud

    • Thanks so much, Bud. I had heard on the news the you guys were getting hit again with another winter blast. I remember those long winters in NY and OH. You’ll be out on the golf course before you know it.

      Take care my friend,

      Phil
