Big Sur, Soberanes Point pullout. Hike out onto the bluff for a view of wild mustard, ferns, brambles and other coastal plants.
I'd taken a morning full of shots of grand vistas on the Big Sur coast. When I started growing weary of all that grand vista scenic splendor, I looked down at my feet for more inspiration and found it with my 70-200 mm 2.8 telephoto trained on the carpet of coastal plants. I thought the textures and interlacing patterns wonderful. I'm sure people passing me by thought I was crazy.
