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.


Please only link posts that have picture/s of reflections.

  4. 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.

    Great colours, atmosphere, and the seagull was a nice touch. :)
    Have a good weekend James!

  7. 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).

  11. 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.

  13. 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?

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

  15. 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 !

  33. 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!

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

    ReplyDelete
  35. Beautiful sunset! Love the patterns of the sand!

    ReplyDelete
  36. 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 :-)

    ReplyDelete
