Mosaic Monday: Land's End



We spent an afternoon in San Francisco hiking to Land's End, a remote and deserted beach with fabulous views of the water. The hike itself was all down hill to reach the beach. The return hike was a b*tch! But the views were definitely worth it. The beach was littered with beautiful rocks and timbers, and as the tide was coming in, it battered and splashed the rocks. I'm so glad we took the time to make this hike -- it felt like a quiet and precious discovery so near to the city.

Here are the instructions to join today's post:
1. Publish your Mosaic Monday post. The post may be about any subject you wish. The only stipulation is that it include a collage, or mosaic of photos.
2. Once it is published, click on the title of the post. This will lead you to the static link for your post. The static link is the page with only that post on it. Copy the url from your browser at the top of the page.
3. Paste the url into the appropriate inlinkz box in this post.
4. Type your name in the appropriate inlinkz box in this post.

That's all there is to it! It's always a good idea to then check and see if your link is working. If you have any questions, feel free to email me: mrcarroll(at)optonline

And a quick reminder: if you would like to join Mosaic Monday but don't know quite where to start, there is a tutorial on mosaic-making on my sidebar. Just scroll down, and click on the small blue mosaic.

  6. Mary, this is just the kind of place I like to explore. I can hear those crashing waves from here! Your collages are great; they give the overall view and the details of the scenery. Have a wonderful week.

  9. Beautiful images Mary...I love the beach and seeing a coast that is a little different from ours is always a bonus. My husband works in international shipping, so when I see a container ship in an artistic setting I love it!

  29. What is going on here? These are magical, Mary. Did you use a tilt/shift action? J'adore.

  30. Hi Mary. Unfortunately I haven't been following blogs much lately but from what I gather you and your husband took a trip to San Fran. I hope you had a wonderful time! Getting away and photographing something totally different must have been invigorating. It shows in your images.

    Can't believe you said Bitch.

  33. Your photos keep getting better and better! And since I'm somewhat of a newbie photographer, I appreciate any technical hints (like Photoshop actions you use). Good luck with your portrait business!
