Evanescent Purple Sand: 3,650 Days Well Spent

purple sand

This Photograph is dedicated to my incredible wife Sara. At this spot, around 3 years ago I proposed to her, not knowing I was going to, but the moment called. We planned a trip last weekend in celebration of our time being together and this purple sand revealed itself. We have heard people talk about "the purple sand beach" before, but little did we know, it was under us the whole time. I guess it may be seen after strong winds or after a high tide. It goes to show that no matter how familiar you are with something or someone, new things will always be revealed with time accordingly. Look for more posts on Big Sur soon. Cheers to us!

"Big Sur is the greatest meeting of land and sea"

garapata surf1 the wise american poet, Robinson Jeffers once said. I would have to agree, at least based on my limited travels thus far. Almost every beach I came into contact with had some sort of fresh water flow that would ease right in, peaceful and serene. Nothing short of breathtaking, these aquatic connections intrigue me deeply and speak as metaphors to a greater unity. As you can see in the bottom right corner of this photograph, there is a small stream making it's way to the oceans edge. I don't think I have ever seen so many various shades of blue in my life. This is another attempt like my early post: "Just In Time" to capture the moving beauty of Garrapata Beach.

Sixth Street Clouds

sixth cloud

I realized these clouds today just before sunset looking out a shuttered window. The awe inspiring formations called out just as I have called out. Amusing but confusing, an alien friend, with spitfire kick: storm clouds above, I see another face that lives in me. What do you see?
