gamarjobat elena. you take beautiful pictures. if, when you are traveling around the world, you need an assistant or travel companion let me know.

beautiful sunset pictures.
Can see why it is called inspiration point. beautiful & captivating
Love the sunset images – especially the one with the Moon & Venus Nice!
Buon giorno El. Great photos, but one question…were you at inspiration point alone??? toni
Thank you darling! I was there with mr. bond, but we got incredibly lost at the end ! those shots were worth the nightmare that followed : )
love & light
This is so beautiful. I was recently in San Louis Obispo this past December and completely fell in love with California again. It was a real treat to be there and feel the warmth, a welcome relief from grey Belgium.
Gorgeous pictures as always!
Gorgeous photos! I’m inspired just looking at them… imagine being there…
Just gorgeous, and inspiring!
An inspiration point indeed! Some beautiful colours there, lovely!
Great snaps, naturals are the real beauty
Beautiful pictures! I will make a mental note to visit this place next time I am in Los Angeles. Hiking is my new found love.
Beautiful vistas, Elena!
That is inspiring.
All them great… as usual!
Well I know where I’m heading next time I’m in southern Cali. You’ve captured some magnificent moments in time.
Lovely photos! Thanks for sharing!
Cool spot! Thanks for sharing
Stunning … views – stunning photos !!!!
Beautiful. I like especially the sunset photo in which the sun looks as though it has a comet tail. Thanks for sharing!
The sky and it’s Color
A new and changing sky every day
Your images inspire me
What a beautiful part of the country you live in. Great photos. Che bella!
Pictures are breathtaking, colors are amazing! Would love to see your writing on what inspired you at this location – you are so good with words!
maybe sometime later.. it wasn’t all roses.. trust me!! Me & mr. bond got really, really lost … at night in true wilderness.. at one point I thought I was in one of those horror movies ” wrong turn ” .. where you think you reached the end of the road, but you’re just in some weird parking lot with a bunch of old cars, sound of river, cellphone battery dies on both phones, cold, dark, 10 miles behind and nowhere near the end … glad to have run into a family that was camping, they gave us a ride down the main road to our car ( LA truly is a city of Angels ) .. but I will never forget the fear I felt .. As soon as it became really dark I was carrying a stick ( my Maasai Warrior friends in Kenya would have been very proud of me : )
so you see, the pictures I took and the story don’t match : ))
Ah ha – I see. Sounds like it was quite a frightful night – I know how that can feel. Beauty of the sunset, terror of the darkness. Does lend itself to more of a horror story versus and inspirational tale. Glad you are safe and well.
All the best…
What an amazing day you had! Jealous!
there were a couple of unexpected things that went wrong along the way ( like being lost at night in the middle of nowhere.. but thankfully things worked out fine .. and besides, these photos were worth it .. )
You made me gasp! SCARY! Glad it all worked out.
Love the pictures and the words
These are great photos. Ive pinned most on my sunsets around the world board. love em all
You sunsets are lovely.
Reblogged this on Larkycanuck's Blog and commented:
This is not my personal post. It is of Elena, one of the bloggers I follow, and it was so amazing to see these photos as I opened my computer this chilly morning in Calgary, that I felt I had to reblog it for others following me to see. All credits for photos and content belong to Elena.
Thank you! Glad you enjoyed them & shared with your readers.
I dont usually reblog but this post was just worth the effort for others to share with. All credits given.
I can see why it is called “Inspiration Point” beautiful..The photos were amazing, especially the final one. Nice, thanks for letting us inside your camera..
Thank you! And you’re welcome, anytime .. : )
lovely! makes me want to go to California
Oh my goodness, where is this? I must share with Anthony and Felicia, this is heaven!
it’s in Alta Dena. I posted the link to the info about this hike below the photos.
Nothing like gazing at the beauty that is Southern California to set the day right! Thank you for sharing your lovely images of a place I hold dear to my heart!
Seeing these pictures was a great way to start my day! Thanks for the “inspiration”!
I’ve been there in topenga valley
the sunsets/sunrises are unbelievable
The very vision of inspiration, the light before the dawn
Love the last image where the lights are coming on but the hues of the sunset are in full effect… fantastic
Just looked up the etymology of “inspiration” and learned that inspiration is the “immediate influence of God or a god,” especially that under which the holy books were written. From Old French, “inspiration” is “inhaling, breathing in; inspiration,” I thought that you captured in your photos that moment in time when you breathed in the source of this beauty and produced something inspirational.
Thank you so much for such a wonderful comment! I just stood there speechless..
