I'm back -- sort of. Swathes of photos remain unidentified. I spent yesterday working on writing captions for images for my naturalist journal. One of the more interesting images from the first day is this:

Purple sea urchins
Sea Urchin Condos

Yesterday i wrote to the California photographer list.
I spent a long weekend in Point Arena in the tidepools this past
weekend, learning about seaweeds on a Jepson Herbarium workshop. Great
time, tons of images, and i have a slight clue as to the incredible
diversity of that flora now. But for landscapes: driving out on the
Stornetta Lands and then driving up from Point Arena to maybe Elk you
will find lush green meadows & hwy 1's roadsides filled with
wildflowers. Much mustard and radish, cow parsnips and poppies and
daisies and indian paintbrush ... we were in a bit of a rush and in
conversation so no complete listing in my head. In the Stornetta Public
Lands there were iris and swathes of seathrift or pinks. Gloriously
beautiful and highly recommended.

I didn't execute this as well as i would have liked, but here's a sea
cliff and sea thrift image:

Back to work today. Whatever it is i do for work. What was it?

Great photos!
I wonder if you are aware of the DW community [community profile] common_nature? They are probably too basic for you but your work might be appreciated there.

Thanks for your writing--it helped bring me there to the West Coast though I don't know the places you named in it--and the beautiful photos. I love the sea urchin condos with the pebbles, and now I know what sea thrift is and what it looks like.
