Pfeiffer Beach

Pfeiffer Beach is located in the heart of Big Sur. It was tough to find and if you’re driving south almost impossible. We stopped to ask directions and were told to turn right at the yellow yield sign. Ok we did and sure enough after driving about a mile or so down a very narrow one lane road we came upon this beautiful gem. It’s unfortunate that I wasn’t able to get here at sunrise or sunset but sometimes itineraries dictate otherwise.

This was an 11 sec. exposure using my 10-stop ND filter at f/9. I processed the image in colour and black and white. Which one do you prefer.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Sea

It’s been a while since I participated in the WordPress weekly photo challenge. Not because I haven’t wanted too but its just been so busy. When I saw this weeks challenge I just couldn’t pass it up especially since I have so many images from California that I want to share and besides being at the beach or out at sea is one of my favourite places to be.

smell the sea, and feel the sky
let your soul & spirit fly, into the mystic…”
