Description

After shooting all day, both above and below the water, I decided to stay and explore Garrapata State Park. I settled on a cove I knew well and had some of the easier access along this rugged stretch of coast. As the sun dipped below the horizon, the light show kicked in and lasted for at least half an hour. I used a longer exposure to smooth over the water and draw attention to the the play of light and dark as well as accentuate the rich colors.
