This photo was taken on a beach south of Carmel on the California central coast in 2006. It is posted today in memory of a friend who was there when it was taken. It represents both beauty and sadness at the same time.
This rock lochs alive as though it’s crawling up out of the sea. I don’t recognize it tut the coast and shoreline is ever evolving. Carmel is definitely a living beach, every few years it changes radically to look entirely new yet ironically it’s because storms have swept away the sand to bare rocks incredibly old.
I love this photo. There is so much in it to think about. Is the sky clouding over or clearing up? There is a stormy look but the sea is calm. I like that lines formed by the kelp help set off the rock. Hope you find more peace than sadness.
