Weekend Reflections, Scenic Sunday, Sunset Sunday, Mellow Yellow / There's GOLD in the Sand!

Click on photo to enlarge!
I spent the late afternoon and evening at this wonderful little cove called, "Crescent Bay."
It's part of Laguna Beach, California.
A storm is supposed to bring us rain all weekend. 
The new weather system brings us a golden sunset!
I wonder if the man on the rocks found a better view???
Hmmm...I'll have to check it out next time!

Amazing Photo! What a beautiful color of the sky! The sands are bathed in golden sunset. Is a man on the rocks fishing or admiring this gorgeous beauty? I do love this!!

A photo that invites me to step in. Just a lovely cove. A very special sky reflected so gold on the sand.

Al said...

That is gorgeous. The reflections of that wonderful sky on the sea and sand are exquisite. I'm ready to head to the beach, but it would be a bit of a long drive for me!

Your comment on my blog about it being chemicals from the geyser was correct, the white stuff was not snow!

Stunning shot...

Quand l'azur se mêle à l'or pâle du ciel, les vagues crissent sur le sable en attendant le lendemain d'autres merveilles...

Beautiful colors of the sunset sky. Seeing your photo makes me feel like driving a car to the beach! But the weather is....

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

What a beautiful little cove -- and perfectly lovely skies. I hope the rain doesn't last too long. Glad you got to go outside while it was still so lovely (that sounds more like Oregon than So. California.)

Liz said...

Simply breathtaking. Happy MYM!

It looks as though a lump of gold has melted in the ocean!

YELLOW CURES THE BLAHS

A seeker of yellow, they say,
Is likely to savor the day
If painted in cream
Or golden—a dream
That overcomes all shades of grey!
