Description

This arch and rock has been referred to by many names; however according to early maps this was originally identified as Hollow Rock, located on Cameo Shores. However, it is documented that this ocean feature was first officially named Ladder Rock after Captain Sheffield, Manager of the Corona del Mar bathhouse, who had secured a ladder to the shore side of the rock. Even though the preferred composition of this arch is to set up and shoot from the foreground rocks, I explored a little, before finding this nearby cave, where I chose to shoot from, framing the entire rock arch and isolate details of the sky, after a clearing storm.
