Theme Day: 2008 Favorite Photo

Point Vicente lighthouse is located at the most southwest corner of the Palos Verdes Peninsula. In the background, 26 miles away, is Catalina Island.
I previously posted this in May and selected it for CDP Theme Day since it is the quintessential Palos Verdes view.

Today is City Daily Photo's Theme Day.

Beautiful lighting and colours in the cliff. Wayne and I are sitting here in our condo in Powell River watching the Rose Parade. Why aren't we at our cabin you ask? It's the USC game this afternoon of course. Happy New Year! - Margy

I've been and it is beautiful. For me Palos Verdes is the most beautiful of the Los Angeles area coastal cities.

I wasn't blogging back in May so I haven't seen this one. It's beautiful. If you're still good for the offer of one of your photos then this would be the one! Happy New Year to you and yours, Tash!

Happy New Year! Or maybe Merry New Year, to differentiate myself from the crowd...

Tremendous shot. Marvellous effort that.

gogouci said...

Oooh. Looks like a postcard. Great choice.

Great choice, beautiful photo. Happy New Year!

Kim said...

Oh Yeah Tash! Talk about perfection. This is it. And so CLEAR, too! The quality of light brings out those gorgeous colors so well. Now you've got me humming, "Twenty six mile across the sea, Santa Catalina is a waiting for me, Santa Catalina, the island of romance, romance, romance, romance. . ." This is sooooo ultra "old" California, the way it all seemed to be along the coast when I was growing up.
And I loved your blimp photo new year wish and a previous shot showing snowy Mt. Baldy. That really says New Year to me.
Blessings in this new year, and continued fun bringing us your great shots!

I can see why you picked this one! Gorgeous!

Bibi said...

California Dreaming is the song that runs through my head when I see your photos. Great shot of another nostalgic site for me.

jill said...

Wow Tash, what a stunning photo. I hadn't seen this one before. Happy New Year to you!

Hyde DP said...

O yes this is a truly marevllous photo - happy new year

Kate said...

The colours are so rich!! I own a coffee-table lighthouse book and your photo is as good as, if not better than any in it. Because I was born in a small town on Lake Michigan and often went to sleep with the sound of the lighthouse's foghorn in my ears, I have an affection for them. Now that we live close to Lake Superior, I can still indulge my love for lighthouses. Great photo!

altadenahiker said...

How lush! I always wanted to live in a lighthouse.

Jilly said...

Not surprised you chose this. It's absolutely fabulous - a stunner. The colours are so marvellous, the aspect super.

Wishing you and your loved ones a Happy New Year, Tash.

JM said...

Great photo! The colour of the cliff is amazing and makes a beautiful contrast with the sea.
My best wishes for 2009!

LSaeta said...

I love this photo. So, I have to ask ... can I use it for an inspiration for a painting? Please? I grew up in Palos Verdes and would love to paint this. Thanks for your comment on my PV Drive South painting.
