Beautiful and very mysterious, the tree is magnificent.

WOW, love all the little boats in the harbour!
We have just had all the tall ships here for a while, schooners, baroques, and I wish I had taken some photo's of them.
But we live so far from the sea, so we only got to watch them on Idiot Box in the corner of the room!
I do remember seeing them once, but I must have been about 10 at the time,but I remember how fantastic they all were.

Now that is picturesque. Dare i say color would ruin it?

Ah yes, my favorite spot in CA. I love the dark-light contrast with the tree and background.

Oooo man...so relaxing - just looking at it! Wish I were on a boat somewhere with a book, a glass of sweet iced tea, and a gentle breeze. Man, I drifted away there for just a sec! This is a wonderful photo!

Sam - thanks Sam, it's a nice place.

Alice - Monterey is one of the few really old places in California. It was the capital when it was part of Mexico.

copyboy - I agree! no color here.

Robyn - One of my favorites also. We've been there many times.

Lynne - It's such a beautiful place. I'll post more photos of from there.

Ren - I don't think it would look as good in color.

Betty - Me too!

Marlene - It will be there when you're ready to go...

justsomethoughts - Thanks! Hard to take a bad photo there.

Costas - Thank you sir!

Megan - I'm going to start making some of them available. I spoke to a printer about it this week.

Andrea - Very relaxing place. That sounds so good! thanks

So peaceful.

Joe Cap said...

It's pretty cool, Pat. The boats almost look like toys! In face, and I had to go back and make sure your post didn't mention that they WERE toys, you know, the remote control ones...

Pat Tillett said...

KaLynn - It sure is! thanks for commenting and signing on here.
I'll be sure to check your blog out as well...

California? Nice shot.

Pat Tillett said...

SQ - We were walking up on the cliff, I looked to my right and there it was!
