About This Image:
This Sea Cave print is from the beautiful coast in Northern California. For years I didn’t know the exact location, but I was always sure that I could find it again if I had the chance to drive along the highway north of Santa Cruz. Can you tell I dream about the chance to re-trace those steps again some day?
Several years ago I was driving up the coast on California State Route 1 basically hopping from beach to beach and enjoying my brief experience of the California landscape. I happened to spot this gorgeous little cove along the coast and I simply had to find my way down. There was no obvious way to get to the little sheltered beach but there were people down there and I finally managed to find my way. It turned out to be quite an uncertain climb but I kept reminding myself there were people on that beach next to the crashing waves.
I think this sea cave print speaks to how worthwhile it was for me to stop and spend time here. It was worth it both as an artist for the incredible landscapes and simply as a human who adores the seaside. I still look at this print and remember the power of the waves and the smell of salt in the air that day on the California coast.
My title is perhaps somewhat misleading as it was in fact a natural arch I found in that little cove, not a true cave. But it certainly feels cave-like in this print doesn’t it? Of course, sometime in the past, it would have been a cave before erosion got too far along. The reason I choose to dispel the illusion just a little is I often hear from people who love this print but are concerned that I was taking a dangerous chance going inside a sea cave that could have filled with water. So, for the folks who care about me, this is actually a natural rock arch. But the illusion of standing inside a beautiful cave by the sea is a better one, isn’t it?
And for those curious about the location? This little slice of paradise is known as Shark Fin Cove. It does lie north of Santa Cruz and about a mile south of Davenport. I managed to re-trace my steps on Google maps and found the location. I’d love to hear if you’re familiar with the location or simply enjoy the vibe from this Northern California coastal art?

I ordered a framed print of the Macon County Clinic and Nurses house . My mother… worked there from 1956 until the clinic closed. Now 80 and retired for many years , she often talks about the many people she remembers from those days, My brother and myself were all born and treated there by Dr. Fred and Dr. Tom. We thought the framed picture would be something she would get great joy from and probably stir a few memories. It is a beautiful artwork and looking forward to seeing her face when she gets this gift on Christmas. Thanks for the Great GIFT!!
Got my print today – Beautiful! Thanks! : )
Can’t wait to get it framed and on the wall.
DeAnn just called me so very excited, she received the picture. She thinks it’s just beautiful.
Thank you so much and I’m sure you will be hearing from her too.
I love my “Toomers Drugstore” and “Auburn Supper Club” prints from Mark. He does an amazing job and every painting has detail and awesome colors. His Auburn prints are a must have for fans that love Auburn as much as I do!
My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
Just wanted to let you know, for Christmas, my sister got me a GIANT photo from you of the mountains and sheep in Connemara (Ireland).
It is really beautiful and I love it. Gotta have it matted and framed next.
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
The print is absolutely breathtaking! I immediately went and had it framed, I just couldn’t wait to display it.
I’m excited to show off your work to my friends and family. You are one of the most talented photographers I’ve seen and it’s a pleasure to own your work.
I treated myself last year to two of your lovely works of art. The telephone box & the Scottish cottage on a country lane. Love them!
Received the print today! It’s gorgeous! I really can’t thank you enough.
I’ll frame it and hang it in my apartment in NYC as soon as I get back.
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
The Lighting in this print is stunning! Thank you!
I just dropped it off at the framing shop on Friday and had a look at it…. it’s absolutely beautiful. I purchased it to replace a painting of Paris and to be honest the way that you have captured Dublin on the river at night makes it look more beautiful than Paris. Beautiful photo, you are very talented.
Love it… the print arrived today and looks awesome!!
Now I just need to get a suitable frame and get it up where it can be enjoyed.
I got my print today, thank-you so much.
I love it!
I took the photograph of the house to be framed and the young lady who helped me choose the mats and frame was so taken with the photography that she asked for your name so she could see more on the web.
If you hear from an Erica I want a commission!
Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
I just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
