Endless Summer (Weekend Reflections # 130)

Newport Beach, California

Actually it's more like endless spring here, which is pretty nice most of the time. However I miss waking up and seeing a fresh layer of snow on the ground during the winter.

Beautiful sunset! And we did not see many layers of fresh snow this winter on this side of the USA!

Absolutely wonderful James!

EG CameraGirl said...

I'm a big fan of silhouettes and beautiful skies!

Rebecca said...

Don't worry, you didn't miss anything out here this year. We've had endless spring too. That is after our Halloween snowstorm....just spring, spring, spring. I could get used to this.

Sylvia K said...

This is the place I'd like to be right now!
Great colours, atmosphere, and the seagull was a nice touch. :)
Have a good weekend James!

Alexa said...

Wow—now I'm craving summer! And it should be here any day now; after all, the daffodils got here a month earlier than last year (and we haven't seen snow since October, for goodness' sake).

Une couleur, un reflet, coupé par un contre-jour ... Oui, l'hiver des bien loin ! C'est très beau, j'en rêve ...

Susan said...

A stunning image. sort of a different feel from your reflections-love the use of silhouette, the ropes, and even a bird-and perfect use of the light.
Sorry about the snow. I think your nuts, but we're all entitled to our nutty-ness. Forever spring sounds heavenly to me. That's my nutty-ness. Happy weekend my friend.

Dominic Doherty said...

Awesome photograph... love the colours of the sunset and the silhouettes of the surfers
have a nice weekend!

Kay L. Davies said...

Beautiful photo, James. Amazing colors, and there are even surfers in the water, plus a bird. Fabulous!
"Endless Summer" was the name of a racing yacht in the 1970s, so I always think of yacht racing rather than surfing when I see those words, although the surfing movie came first (1966).
When checking out the dates, I discovered it is also the name of a genetically modified tomato. Now whodathunk that?

Emille said...

So true! There hasn't been one time yet I've been at the waterside without seeing surfers. Great silhouette, James!

We do have same kind of problem, here in Brittony, the winter had last two or three weeks, the rest of the time was like a long spring weather with no leaves on hte tree... Beautiful shot nayway ; I like its atmosphere : those men seem to have a really good time.

To answer to your question about the butterfly I posted this week on my blog : they are not so big in France, only this particular Moth, called "Grand Paon de Nuit" which means great "peacock of the night" I guess because the ocellus on its wings looks like the top of peacock feathers...

See you !

Oh, I LOVE this. So Sixties...reminds me of when I went to high school in West L.A.

Forever Spring sounds fabulous- nice shot.

Such wonderful light! And love beauty of the small waves rippling to shore!

Outstanding! Love that shot. A perfect beach scenery. And, yes it's nice to dream of an endless summer.

A nice double dose of the beautiful colors!

Island Rambles Blog said...

That is the perfect shot...like a magazine ad...makes me think of summer and it is still cold here!!
Thanks for this beautiful blogging meme for all the lonely bloggers to meet and see each others work and life.

Ann said...

That's my son and his friend back from surfing. LOL, loves the gloing orange color.

Had trouble commenting Kay's blog, did you?

Mama Zen said...

That's really pretty!

Thérèse said...

... if the only thing to worry about is of an endless summer, then it's more than ok!

Kara said...

Makes me wish I was at the beach.

Gattina said...

Wow ! that's a real stunning photo !

Linda said...

Beautiful shot! I, however, NEVER miss seeing snow! If I never saw it again, other than in photos, it would be just fine with me...endless spring, or summer sounds just about perfect! Have a great weekend, James!

Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Barely a dusting of snow this winter which is perfectly fine with me- I am so glad spring is here. Beautiful sunset pic!

Ebie said...

Beautiful sunset! Love the patterns of the sand!

Stickup Artist said...

Classic! The colors are amazing. The backlighting silhouetting the surfers makes a striking image. You caught them just at the right time. Why doesn't that surprise me :-)

Dina said...

Ah James, complaints complaints. You really miss snow?? ;)

Your photo is so classic.

Perfect title for a gorgeous shot!

An amazing iconic image and I would settle for that each day rather then the risk of snow ;-)
