Anne hosts the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge (LAPC) for this week, and asks us to show off our local vistas. I tend to get carried away with travel or animal photos, and I don’t always stop to appreciate the vistas in my local area. I am very lucky to live in a fairly green area (our town has a groundwater basin that’s doing ok), and I get to drive down to the beach often. Here are some of my local photos that I am proud to show off. All of them were taken within a mile of my house in Redlands, California.
Sharing these beautiful pink vistas for Terri’s Sunday Stills:
Some of my local trails provide excellent views too. All of these are close enough to walk to, but sometimes I will bring my camera gear, which requires me to drive. Sharing for Cee’s Flower of the Day (FOTD).
Since I love to visit the beach at least once a week, I am including vistas from the one I visit the most–Crystal Cove State Beach. I consider it to be my local beach. Crystal Cove has many views, which is part of its charm. Believe it or not, all of these photos are from the same state park. The first two were taken last weekend. I love the June gloom and the peacefulness that it brings. Sharing for Jez’s Water Water Everywhere and John’s Cellpic Sunday.
At the end of the day and after my travels, I still like to come home and relax. I will finish up this post with a vista from my backyard:
