Your creative collage is beautiful as always. I think California beaches have some of the most spectacular view in the world.

Wishing you a happy and healthy New Year...

There is nothing better than a walk on the beach (especially in California) and your photos captured it beautifully.

Beautiful! Soon I'll be back in Southern California. I'm looking forward to a winter walk on the beach.
A very Happy New Year to you and yours!!

Martha Z said...

Nice shots! I don't think you took these the same day we went to Malibu though it is possible that the gray sky didn't extend to Santa Monica and the south coast.

Lovely shots from your walk - I love how it starts with the fountain and expands to the sea and sky. And I like the year-end quote, as well.

Very interesting. The fountain appears to be frozen. I didn't know it got that cold so close to the ocean. Happy NY & WW

Helena said...
