This coastal waterfall has always been a tough photographic challenge. Only after consistent heavy rainfall does it flow with enough power to make it memorable. Couple that with an area of the California coastline that seems dead against letting the sun paint the sky red and you have a gorgeous location that tears your heart out but always keeps you coming back. On this day my friends and I were thinking big sunset colors, but like numerous times before it wasn't meant to be as dark clouds mysteriously emerged from the east. Not wanting to give into another sunset defeat, we took what was given to us and began creating long exposures resulting in streaking clouds and a creamy ocean. Who says drama has to have a fiery sky?
