Trail to the Lagoon

This time of year the Carmel River swells and pushes against the sand bar that separates it from the Pacific. Steelhead fingerlings school in the cold water, fleeing from shadows of wheeling gulls, and awaiting their chance to begin another phase of life.

The Carmel Lagoon is a beautiful place, for these and countless other reasons, and I will probably never tire of painting it.
