A World of Flora and Fauna in the Lost Coast

A verdant wall, entirely built from ferns clinging to a vertical rock surface, is breathtaking not just because of scale, but also because of how it is able to exist at all in such delicate balance on the edge of collapse in Lost Coast XVII.

Lost Coast XIII. Before the sun rises higher, seagulls flock together in the sky over the point where river meets ocean and salmon begin to work their way upriver to spawn on the Pacific Coast of Northern California. As a result, there was an incredible atmosphere to this morning, the beach filled with the sounds of the ocean, and the waters churning with life. Almost indiscernible at first glance, slivers of blue sky push at the edges of clouds that spread across the horizon over the troubled waters of the Pacific Ocean early in the morning. These photographs were captured as storms passed through over the coastline.

This region of California is rich with both flora and fauna. Firstly, there are the forests that you pass through to reach the black sand beaches are dripping with rains and condensation. The forest floor rich and green and lush so early in the season. These photographs of the Lost Coast are part of a larger collection of works. That focus on the forest and ocean landscapes of Northern California.
