This shot is near and dear to my heart because it is the first one that came out exactly as I'd hoped. It hadn't been a particularly good day in Big Sur. Always beautiful, but on this day, hazy and not very photogenic. The day seemed to have the right conditions for a shot that I'd had in my head for a couple of months: colorful sunset, no fog, lots of southbound traffic. I waited till about a half hour after sunset and started shooting. This one turned out exactly as I'd envisioned (that doesn't happen that often for me).
