“Duma” | Point Dume
Limited Edition | Fine Art Photography Print
Point Dume ~ Malibu California
On November 24, 1793, English explorer George Vancouver, commander of an expedition to determine the extent of settlement of the Northwest coast of America, named this rocky promontory, Point Dume, after his Franciscan friend, Father Francisco Dumetz, at Mission San Buenaventura.
The name was misspelled on Vancouver’s original map as “Dume” and was never corrected. In 1870 new owner Matthew Keller confirmed on the plat map of the Rancho Topanga Malibu Sequit the point is marked on the map as “Point Zuma or Duma”.
Iconic to the Malibu shoreline the mighty Point Dume Malibu west face towers over the Zuma Beach shoreline and has been a much desired filming location for many classic Hollywood films and television shows.
On this winters chill morning first light, the silhouette of her magnificent splendor was on full display. Slowly morphing into view from a pitch black moonless night, her familiar form deceives her weight and size. Over millennia, ocean erosion halting her advance into the sea, having carved her one hundred foot sheared face into icon status, her elegance and power stand resolute. In the Zulu language Duma is defined as: “to be famous, to be renowned, to roar, to thunder”. In retrospect, Matthew Keller aptly renamed this legendary rock, gracing her the moniker fitting her historic and majestic status, “DUMA”
