For Leanne Cole’s MM2 this week I present another image from last Saturday’s photography adventure at Martin’s Beach with one of my favorite Meet-Up groups which I talked about and shared the sunset image here.

I mentioned that we had changing weather; going from very thick clouds, and no sun, to the sun breaking out, and then the fog rolled in.  I made this image as the fog was beginning to recede.

The seascape here with the rocky shore, and surf is beautiful, and haunting at the same time.

The Fog Rolls in Martin's Beach, CA

Can you imagine a Galleon Pirate Ship sailing past this rocky shore hoping to evade detection and the rocks? 🙂

More to come…



  1. just stunningly beautiful! Full of the mystery of the ocean and shore!

  2. Beautiful monochrome, Deborah! I love your composition here. And I can ‘see’ the pirate ship in the background, wouldn’t that be awesome! 🙂

    • Thank you so much Donna! Seeing a tall ship there with fog would be pretty neat! Better if I had my camera. 🙂

  3. Love the mood in this black-and white! Has the feeling of a far, far land…

  4. Hey, I think I was there getting water in my shoes like you 🙂 That driftwood log looks awfully familiar but it fits in this comp. The stones in the sand look like footprints from someone walking in the wet sand. Excellent B&W shot!

    • Thank you so much Gordon! I think you got a better shot with the driftwood log though.

      There’s small comfort knowing I wasn’t the only one with wet feet, shoes, and socks. 🙂 I am plotting a time when I go back to this beach. Maybe on a negative tide. 🙂

  5. Great image. I can almost catch sight of the Ship’s sails…

  6. I’m not sure why, but this reminds me of the (internal) ocean scene in the original movie “Journey to the Centre of the Earth” – It has an other-world appearance. Very nice Deborah (in case it wasn’t clear that I do like it 🙂

    • I had to wait until I had a chance to view that ocean scene in the movie since it’s been ages since I last watched it. Those pointy, jagged rocks and the mood perhaps why it reminds you of that scene?

      Thank you so much for the comment, and support I appreciate it very much!

      • You’re most welcome Deborah. I enjoy your photos and the descriptions.

    • P.S. I sure am glad no hungry Dimetrodons came out of the sands and cliffs! 🙂

  7. Wow I love the ocean and this shot is so beautiful and haunting as you mentioned!

  8. Beautiful shot! Looks like something out of a fairy tale 🙂
