Glass Beach

Glass Beach, Fort Bragg, California
 

Years of discarded china and glass pitched over the cliffs have provided this beach with its most distinctive feature. The substantial glass waste from this former dump site has been pounded and polished over the years by the waves, scattering brilliant gem-like pieces of colored glass among the shells, sand, and rocks. This jewel-encrusted beach is a most unusual sight to behold! Afternoon sun and high clouds produce a beautiful modeling effect on the outcroppings of rock, and form an interesting composition. Use of a small aperture keeps everything in the scene sharp.
