California Cliffs (again)

May 6, 2009

Because of the effect California Cliffs had on me – I’m still going through the emotional aftermath of my highly-charged visit – I thought I’d post a few more pictures of that wonderful, strange, magical place.

Here’s a picture I took of what I used to call ‘Beachy Head’:


And here’s another cliffs picture I took:


and here’s a shot of the dunes:


And finally, here’s a picture that sums the whole place up for me:


If you haven’t been to California Cliffs yet, then try and go soon. Have a look at that hauntingly beautiful, poignantly desolate landscape and you’ll feel the pull of a thousand years deep inside your soul. And you’ll know…

California Cliffs

April 12, 2009

One of the most beautiful places I’ve visited recently is California Cliffs.



I’d been there before, many years ago, and I decided I’d revisit the place. It was spacious, wild, and hauntingly beautiful. It was very much as I remembered it.



The cliffs are made of sandstone and are constantly being eroded away by the wind and the sea. However, it’s still very beautiful there.



If you get a chance, go and visit California Cliffs – as I hope these photos show – it’s a very lovely place.
