The Point Reyes Peninsula has long baffled geologists. Why should the rocks of this craggy coast match rocks in the Tehachapi Mountains more than 310 miles to the south? The answer lies in plate tectonics and the continual motion of the Earth’s crust.
Geologically, Point Reyes National Seashore is a park on the move. The eastern border of the park parallels the San Andreas Fault, which is the current tectonic plate boundary separating the Pacific Plate from the North American Plate.
The remaining sides of the peninsula are intermittently edged by beaches, sea cliffs, and intertidal zones cascading into the Pacific Ocean. Encircled by this rich assemblage is a mosaic of ecosystems arranged by factors such as geologic foundation, climate, and exposure. While there are dozens of ways to classify and name the exact type of ecosystem, the broadest and closest category places Point Reyes National Seashore into a Mediterranean Ecosystem.National Parks Service
A walk around Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge with
Walks & Rambles meetup group in Middletown, RI.
The refuge is a peninsula between the Sakonnet River and Rhode Island sound and was once a dump site for NewPort’s trash.
Music on the video clip is by Aidan Baker & Ben Fleury Steiner. The track is called: Wednesday and may be found on freeMusicArchive.org
Fluffy clouds march east towards Long Island Sound passing over City Island, NY where the camera was set. The video was captured on Black Friday between noon and sunset and was later sped up to get the time-lapse effect.
The music is by New York musician, Lattice from the album titled:
Songs in the Key of Glass.The tracks are(in the order they are heard on the video):
This video has been inspired by a track called: The Sky Was Glorious For A Moment by DestroyAllDreamers.
It was used on another video last year:
This was an outing with a NYC Photography meetup group. The plan was to shoot the sunset in Battery Park and then head to Wall Street for some Street Photography at night.
Named after the famous Joshua Tree, the national park is located in the Southeastern Corner of California and is surrounded by three towns: TwentyNine Palms, Joshua Tree and Yucca Valley. I saw signs for all three of them on my way from Palm Springs.
The sky was California quality blue and the views were just breathtaking. I drove through many spots starting at the Northern Entrance passing through Jumbo Rocks, Skull Rock, Sheep Pass, Ryan mountain, Keys Ranch and finally Barker Dam loop just as the sun was about to set. You can see the dam in the pictures. Colors of the sunset were different from any other place I have been to in this trip. Temperatures were in the low 60s & suffice to say, I am still suffering from a trauma since I came back to CT!
This is the last post for this trip, 15 days in heaven.
