The Rugged Cliffs of Point Loma

Point Loma Cliffs

The cliffs of Point Loma in the San Diego area draw visitors from all over to explore and enjoy. The crashing waves provide the sound track, and the wind blows through your hair as you breathe in the salty air.

The waves pound relentlessly against the cliffs.

The constant battering has formed arches and small caves at the shoreline.

You want to be careful not to stand on the edge of the layered, crumbling land.

At low tide, you see all the rocks washed up at high tide. The water swirls around the rock, movement against stability.

What a great way to spend a weekend afternoon, taking in nature with its instability, ever-changing tidal patterns, cliffs and arches, and at bottom, solid rock. Nothing stays the same, just as life, and the beauty and aging are all wrapped up in one place. Even the moody skies are constantly on the move across the horizon.

How about you? Are you feeling strong like a rock or more fragile like the cliffs this week?

We lived not even 1 1/2 hrs. North from there, and never went to Point Loma! Beautiful and rugged is what I like! We hung out regularly though in San Diego, at our favorite book-and coffee store “Upstart Crow”:)
Many thanks for being a part of SEASONS with these stunning views! and for sharing the ocean I miss:) Have a happy week and “see” you soon!

The crazy thing about this is my husband is from San Diego and for 20 years we’ve been visiting SD and not once have we been to Point Loma. It’s kind of a bone of contention with us bc we always visit family and usually not tour around. I will insist we visit these cliffs this summer.

The Pacific Ocean is wonderful from any and every viewpoint, but this certainly is one of the best!

I’m feeling stronger than normal…maybe a little crumbly around the edges. 🙂 Love the photos! I didn’t know this beach was there, or we would have tried to visit when we were in that area.

Amazing & beautiful cliffs. I’d be real careful not to get to close to the edge of them. – This week has been a bit “stressful” but I’m hanging in there. Hope you are too. Enjoyed your post.

These coastal lines look so much like The Cliffs of Moher area in Ireland… it always mazes me how two parts of the world can look so much like each other.

I love the perspective in these shots with the people in them so that you can really see the scale of the cliffs. Well done Sharon, I just love your photography.

Absolutely stunning photography Sharon. I admire the power of the cliffs and how they stand tall and proud to fight the onslaughter of the waves.
