adventures in nature

random shots from point reyes

The plants at these beaches LOVE the rain, fog, and overcast weather … they seem to glow when the sun is hiding. Literally glow. The wind is a constant factor here, always sculpting the landscape in new and interesting ways. This lone dune grass in the flats became the instrument of the wind on a sandy canvas, with the trickster coyote leaving his signature on it so the wind didn’t get all the credit.

The wind blowing from different directions throughout the morning guided the leaf tips to leave a half-moon pictograph in the sand below, complete with a coyote track.
