Garrapata Sunset

  • Brief Directions: From the Carmel area, take Highway 1 south. Approximately 4 miles south of the Point Lobos State Reserve entrance marks the beginning of Garrapata State Park. There are many trails to explore down to the water, but most are steep. This cove is located just before Soberanes Point.

  • GPS Longitude: 121
  • GPS Latitude: 36
  • Best Season: Summer
  • 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.

    Thank you very much, Alena! Before planning your visit, do make sure to check park hours, as this area is not open to the public year-round.

    Lovely composition of greenery and water motion, Alena. I especially like the textured waterfall curtain effect you have captured.
