A very different type of scenery for me to explore

These photos were captured during a brief business trip. The views were breath-taking and I wished I could have stayed for the sunset! Perhaps next time I will be able to remain there longer and capture a more complete set of views.
I am quite amazed at the ruggedness of the coast in and around San Francisco. I always picture the beaches with white sand and big waves. Not these sheer cliffs and rugged rocks. I do enjoy their ruggedness, much more than wide sandy beaches for photography.
The shape of the trees was another uniqueness that caught my attention. There are many interesting shapes to the trees here. Some of the shaping is due to sculpting by the wind, but many are just the natural weirdness of the particular species.
