Brief Directions

About a mile north of the Big Sur Bakery there is an unmarked turnoff for Pfeiffer Beach.

Notes

Wait for a wave to crash through the arch. Then be ready to shoot right away. The mist from the subsiding wave intensifies the color in the shaft of sunlight.

Description

I say Winter is the best season, but I'm referring to this particular scene. Around the Winter Solstice is the best time to catch the light of the setting sun blazing through this natural arch in the rock formation at Pfeiffer Beach along the Big Sur Coast.
