Brief Directions

Santa Cruz is 70 miles south of San Francisco and 35 miles north of Monterey, California. It's one of three harbors on the Monterey Bay. Santa Cruz is also a surfing mecca--home to Steamer Lane and Pleasure Point, two of the best surfing destinations in North America. Both of these spots are within a mile from where this shot was taken.

Notes

Handheld at 1/60th second at f/8.0. ISO 100

Description

This is a rare perspective of Walton Lighthouse from inside the harbor channel, made possible by a minus tide and tons of sand deposited by winter storms in the Pacific. These storms brought little precipitation to Californa, but lots of surge, swell, and surf.
