Silence 3


My most precious gift for my birthday last month was a road trip to the Lost Coast. I have been there several times before, but this time was very special. I took many photos. The photo above is from a hike my friend and I did, on the morning of my birthday. It was cold, and the light was magical. Even though the ocean wasn’t still, it was rather silent, compared to the storm we admired the night before.

Have you hiked the Lost Coast? I haven’t hiked the whole coast line yet, but it’s definitely on my bucket list! I’m a great swimmer, but the power of the ocean is something I have a lot of respect for. I’m mesmerized by it’s beauty, and terrified of its powers. I would not feel comfortable living close to the ocean, but I enjoy visiting very much. I’ve spent the majority of my life at higher elevation, and the mountains are calling my soul. When I do go to the ocean I enjoy it tremendously, and it’s a great adventure. If you had to choose a place to live the rest of your life… would you choose the ocean? Or the mountains? Or maybe the city?

Enjoy this beautiful new week ❤

It’s all about experiences, and the healing power of nature. Life is about choosing happiness. I entered the magic world of photography when I was five years old. My gypsy soul have taken me to many different countries, and definitely taught me to be more humble. I believe that you are what you eat, body and soul. I enjoy growing my own food, and spending time outdoors. Above everything else is my daughter. A Sagittarius loves to travel, have an open mind and, and a philosophical view. It motivates them to wander around the world in search of the meaning of life. Sagittarius is extrovert, optimistic and enthusiastic, and likes changes. A lot of that perfectly describes me. The fact that my ancestors, on both parents sides, were vikings, doesn’t exactly lessen my desire to explore. Maybe a slightly more mindful exploring, compared to the average viking. My blog, and my art prints is a results of my (inner and outer) explorations. Love, Maria

  1. Love your photo. My husband and I love the North Coast and talk about retiring there, but I need trees and the mountains. The city, no way, nope! I really like the area around Trinidad and further north among the redwoods, we’ll see. 😉

    1. Thank you Margaret! The area around Trinidad is extremely beautiful. I like the calmness and redwoods of course. I can see how it would be the perfect place to retire. Fingers crossed for your dreams to come true ❤

    1. Thank you! It’s a beautiful area around Monterey/Carmel. I was blessed to be able to spend some time there this summer. Looking forward to see more of your beautiful photos. Have a wonderful week!


  2. Gorgeous photo!
    I visited Shelter Cove once and the area really is outstanding, but all those tsunami signs were a bit unsettling!
    Though I love the ocean, I am a woods and hills person, born and raised, and while I wandered a bit, I ended up coming back to my roots. I love where I live!
